Scottish Kirk Sessions now available on Scotland's People

 

From the latest Lost Cousins newsletter, https://www.lostcousins.com/newsletters2/apr21news.htm

Scottish Kirk Sessions now available on the Scotland's People website: http://email.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/c/11bWKowU6xhPCPTPSt42ILuOe

More about that at https://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/news/kirk-session-records-scotlandspeople/

This rip-roaring article by Chris Paton explains why that is important! 

kirk_session1.jpg

Although Scottish parish registers helpfully allow us to trace who our ancestors were, it is the records of the kirk sessions that more specifically help us to understand how the Kirk worked within society as an institution. The registers of individual kirk sessions not only recall the everyday administrations of a church''s elders and minister, but also provide a record for one of the session''s primary functions – its role as the lowest of the Kirk''s courts.


Enjoy!

Hi Malcolm
I see no "Nesbitt" names nor the other ones you mentioned, but there is 1 Chambers:

"Elmira Chambers died May 20, 1873 aged 26 yrs. 6 mos. "

If they lived in Peel County, I would recommend going to the website, "Find a Grave" + Ontario + Peel. Then go down the list of cemeteries using your ancestors' surname to see if they come up with a match. Often they also have a photo of the gravestone.

Good Luck!

Re: McNab

Thank you, as ever, Toni.
Catherine d. 1894 was my GGgmother and I have visited and photographed the
grave.

I was unaware of grave #84 and can not place these. They appear to be
siblings, and if they were b. in Ontario, they precede the arrival of my
McNabbs in 1852. They may have been cousins of my Catherine.

Yes, that Robert Lawson, husband of Catherine, had a farm on the bank of the
River Credit, just east of Cheltenham. Claude was the church, which I have
visited and I have the records from it.
I'm glad to have your confirmations.

Sorry to jump into this conversation so late, but this information took me a
while to find. I have a list of grave stones in Boston Mills Cemetery,
Chingacousy Township, Peel county, and this might help
you:

#10, Catherine McNab, died Feb. 14, 1894, age 72 years, daughter of Duncan
McNab and Grace Morrison of Islay
She is buried there with her husband, Robert Lawson, son
of peter Lawson, of Clackmananshire, Scotland.

Also in this cemetery:
#84. Catharine J. McNab, died Mar 16, 1854, aged 20 yrs. 9 mos.
Alexander McNab, died Apr. 1836, aged 8 mos.
Duncan McNab, died April 1837, aged 9 mos.

You can see these 3 stones on Find a Grave + Ontario+Peel+Boston Mills. I
don't know if or how these last 3 are related, but it's possible.

I've been looking through the names on a map of that township, I think dated
1881, but I don't see any McNabs there. However, a Robert Lawson did own
land just southwest of Boston Mills. I think that the nearest church to
this cemetery would be at Claude, and there might be some church records
available there. Ching. is the township directly south of Caledon.

Interested to hear that you have Cemetery listings from the Boston Mills Cemetery, Chingacousy Twp. Peel County.

I have NESBITTs who lived and died in that Township.

Might any of them be interred in that cemetery?

Catherine "Kate" NESBITT, d. 27 April 1877, her husband  Major Robert CHAMBERS,

Re: McNabb

Very interesting, Anne.  Thank you.

So that’s where the name Cardwell came from.  I know, from reading the microfilmed census, that the name “Cardwell Co.” was on each page in the space for “county”, so perhaps it was not fictional, just impermanent.

Thanks, Ken for clarifying that. Maybe they wanted to name a township for Cardwell and almost used it instead of Peel and then when Muskoka opened up in the 1868 they used Cardwell for a township in Muskoka.

 

I just had so many questions in my head when I saw Cardwell & Caledon in the same location. Names of places changed so often as Canada West, Upper Canada, Ontario grew and developed over the years. Keeping track of the dates when names changed is a big part of doing genealogy in Ontario.

I assumed it was in Peel because this is where so many immigrants stopped for a year or two while looking for land and obtaining the paperwork.

 

PS. Peel was probably a priority as he was the UK Prime Minister at the time

Viscount Cardwell was minister for the colonies in the Peel cabinet at the time.

Check on the Canadian Census site.  About 40 years ago I learned that “Cardwell Co.” (not Cardwell Twp.) as used in this census was a fictional County and the location was actually in Peel County.  I don’t remember why this was done, or whether it was an error, but the fiction was consistent throughout that census for that area.

The actual home was in Caledon Twp, Peel Co., and nowhere near Muskoka.

The location for Duncan in the 1871 Census is interesting. Cardwell Township is in the Parry Sound and Muskoka District in 1871. Both sets of my maternal 2x great grandparents settled there at that time. Caledon is north of Brampton in Peel County. They are 200+ kms apart.

 

Duncan and Grace are not part of my McNabb family as far as I know. All of the immigrant McNabbs were in Oro Twp, Simcoe County by 1850. Later many members of the younger generations moved to the West. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. One also appears in Revelstoke. I think that branch ended up on Vancouver Island.

Duncan & Grace were my GGGgparents.  I have found no connection to anywhere on the Prairies.

Duncan was a weaver, and emigrated to Canada with the family about 1852, but I have not located a death record.  Some family papers suggest they went first to somewhere near Chatham, Ontario (no proof of this that I have found) but had moved to Chinguacousy, Ont within a year or two.  He shows in both the 1861 & 1871 censuses, living with one of his married daughters in Caledon Twp. 

Grace also emigrated with family in 1852, according to family papers, but I have never found a record of her in Canada. She is not seen in the 1861 census above, so probably died between 1852 and 1861.

Duncan and Grace are not part of my McNabb family as far as I know. All of the immigrant McNabbs were in Oro Twp, Simcoe County by 1850. Later many members of the younger generations moved to the West. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. One also appears in Revelstoke. I think that branch ended up on Vancouver Island.

Duncan & Grace were my GGGgparents.  I have found no connection to anywhere on the Prairies.

Duncan was a weaver, and emigrated to Canada with the family about 1852, but I have not located a death record.  Some family papers suggest they went first to somewhere near Chatham, Ontario (no proof of this that I have found) but had moved to Chinguacousy, Ont within a year or two.  He shows in both the 1861 & 1871 censuses, living with one of his married daughters in Caledon Twp. 

Grace also emigrated with family in 1852, according to family papers, but I have never found a record of her in Canada. She is not seen in the 1861 census above, so probably died between 1852 and 1861.

The location for Duncan in the 1871 Census is interesting. Cardwell Township is in the Parry Sound and Muskoka District in 1871. Both sets of my maternal 2x great grandparents settled there at that time. Caledon is north of Brampton in Peel County. They are 200+ kms apart.

Josephine,

Yes, that’s him.  I have the complete census as I noted below, and he was living in the household of Alexander McLaren his son-in-law.

Not sure what your question is, but Duncan had 6 children and I know the name of his father.
