Looking for information that might help me prove that John and Mary Paterson are the parents of my Jessie/Janet Paterson. I do not know if this couple even exists, but if Jessie and her husband used the normal naming procedure with their chilldren, this would be the names of her parents. Can anyone help me to find out if they exist? Jessie was married in 1845 so probably born bef 1830.

I am responding to a posting over a year old, so you may already have the little information which I have to offer.
I have checked all my data on Paterson, and the only couple who might qualify are John Patterson and Mary Blaickie of Coldingham. The only children that I can find, however are Archibald 1818, James 1823 and George 1826.There is also a John Paterson who married Mary Blackie and had a son Allan 1840 in Ayton. These Johns may be the same people. A new parish, a new Minister , a different way of spelling.

Hello, I noticed the combination of Patterson & Coldingham.
I'm descended from William Patterson who married Margaret
Gilroy in Coldingham in 1794. I don't know whether William
was christened in 1767 or 1793.

Do you have any information on Paterson/Patterson of

A little late with a reply. have been out of circulation for a while. Hope this might help.

Thanks for that.

I'm hoping that somone can look up for me the microfilm of the Coldingham parish register for the William Patterson - Margaret Gilroy marriage 7 Feb 1794 in Coldingham. Both the IGI and microfiche state that the microfilm has "more information" on that marriage. There are at least three possible births for William:

20 Mar 1767 to John Paterson & Alison (last name Alison or Turnbull?) East Reston, Coldingham
21 May 1767 to William Paterson & Margaret Spense, Coldingham
15 Dec 1767 to John Patterson, Earlston, Berwick

I can't find possible births for Margaret anywhere in the UK.

I am a direct descendent of John Patterson & Mary Blaikie (or Blackie or Blakie). Based on my research this couple was married in 14 Feb 1818 in Chirnside. The 1841 Scottish census Berwick (District Coldingham, Houndswood, Ferney Castle) notes the approximate ages of the family members. I have noted where my subsequent research has confirmed birth dates: John Patterson (50); Mary Patterson (40); Archibald (20) actually born 24 Nov 1818; Jennet (15)- this might be your ancestor; James (14) actually born 21 Sept 1823; George (12)actually born 30 July 1826; John (10)- this is my ancestor who migrated to Australia; Robert (8); Thomas (6); William (2); Allan (10 months) actually born 30 July 1840. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who shares these ancestors

I am also a direct descendant of John PATTERSON and Mary BLAIKIE/BLACKIE,
they are my 4x's great grandparents. I am descended from their daughter
Janet/Jessie and her husband Henry HUGHES. I have quite a bit of research on the
family and would be happy to share.

My great, great grandmother was born Mary Blaikie around 1850 and lived in the Oxton/Channelkirk area of Berwickshire. I would be interested to know if there is a connection.

Best wishes


Mary Patterson (nee BLAIKIE or BLACKIE)

I cannot confirm any connection as my research only extends from the Patterson line (Namely John PATTERSON son of John PATTERSON and Mary BLAIKIE). The only BLAIKIE information I can add is that Mary's parents (per her death regsitration on 13 Aug 1869) were James BLAIKIE and Janet ALLAN.

I am doing a bit of family research and I remember my mother. Joan Paterson Bryant telling me that her great? possibly great great grandmother was called Jessie Paterson. All I know about her was that she and her husband worked on the estate belonging to the Duke of Buccleugh. What is also interesting is that I am decended on my fathers side from Ralph Gilroy who was connected to the Patersons. Hope this is of help, Jan Connor
