BMDB data

     Isabel Sinton was born say 1787 ?Cavers, ROX, SCT.1
     Isabel Sinton married Oliver Henderson on 1 Jun 1808 Cavers, ROX, SCT, entry reads: "Oliver Henderson Hawick and Isabel Sinton in this parish 3 days" (the only Oliver HENDERSON marr. in the OPR, total.)1
     Isabel Sinton died bef. 1841 ROX, SCT.1
     Did Isabel later marry Richard ROBSON?
I'd love to prove this.
It's a tight squeeze datewise, but may well account for an excellent dna match between descedants of Adam HENDERSON/Janet EASTON and of Peter SINTON/Jane WIGHT.
Can it fit?
Isabella married to Richard ROBSON consistenly ages herself in census as around 1790/1792 which makes a marriage in 1808 rather tight at 1792, but slightly more likely if 1790.2


Oliver Henderson (say 1780 - bef. 1841)
  • Adam Henderson+ (cir. Jan 1814 - Jan 1892); from naming pattern of children, and dna match between descendants of Adam, and those of Peter SINTON & Jane WIGHT3,4

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
