Robert and Nancy were married in North Stonington, Connecticut. Recorded in "Early Connecticut Marriages as found in Ancient Church Records prior to 1800" First Book Edited by Frederic W. Bailey published by the Bureau of American Ancestry, New Haven, Connecticut.

The birth of the children were recorded Connecticut State Vital Records for Voluntown, Connecticut. They can be found on LDS film #0002927.


Mr. Jamison was not four years old when his parents arrived in America, and a lad of only eleven years when they removed to Voluntown, Connecticut. He married Agnes Dixon, Who came to America in 1726, when three years old, with her father, Robert Dixon, who settled in Voluntown, Connecticut. Here the newly-married young people commenced life together, on the old farm where Mr. Jamison's parents, now deceased, had spent their last days. Twenty years passed in industry and a happy home life. They now had a group of thirteen children, the oldest twenty-one and the youngest less than a year old.

Mr. Jamison was a man of affairs in the town, and highly esteemed for his up-rightness and business ability, and to him was entrusted the administration of the public finances, which were in a depressed condition. Mr. Jamison was chosen town treasure, when by no fault of his----the financial affairs of the town were greatly embarrassed:.... a heavy debt accrued to the government, for which the town treasure, Mr. Robert Jamison, was held responsible. Having no funds to meet this demand, Mr. Jamis0on was arrested and confined in Windham jail. In 1777 a committee was appointed to go to Windham in term of the Superior Court, and get the best advice concerning a trouble for which Robert Jamison is now confined in jail. Isaac Gallup was ordered to take and secured all said Jamison's estate for the use of the town in settling the debt for which he was imprisoned, but in no wise at fault. This imprisonment lasted for two years. When James Gordon was appointed agent to settle with Robert Jamison, now confined in the Windham County Jail, for the colony tax due for said town, and soon effected his liberation.

Robert Jamison, soon after his release, removed to Wyoming Valley, Pennsylvania, with his sons, Robert, William, John, Alexander and Joseph, who gained a permanent home in that beautiful Valley, and were numbered among its most respectable and influential citizens. Among valuable families from Windham County, Connecticut were those of George and John Dorrance, Robert Jamison, Cyrus Kinne of Voluntown, Connecticut, who emigrated to Wyoming Valley on the Susquehanna River.

Mr. Jamison, some years before March 30, 1768, had purchased of Robert Dixson, for nine shillings, one whole share or right in "Purchase of Susquehanna Land Company." The above Robert Dixson was an ancestor of the Honorable Nathan F. Dixson, who in 1839-1842 was a United States Senator from Rhode Island. The charms of the Wyoming Valley were described in verse as follows:

Canaan of Old, as we are told
Where it did rain down manna,
Wasn't half so good for heavenly food
As Dyer makes Susqu'hanna.

The tide of emigration being strongly set in that direction, Mr. and Mrs. Jamison in the autumn of 1776, after the trials of the last few years, were easily persuaded to take advantage of the current, and so set out with all their sons and daughters, except John, the eldest, who had already preceded them, for the land of promise.

They bade a last farewell to their old home and neighbors in Voluntown, Connecticut and with luggage as they could take started for the Wyoming Valley on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. They took with them a few articles of household furniture and an agricultural implement or two which they conveyed in a large cart drawn by three yoke of oxen. The sons walked along side, driving the oxen and helping the cart over new and badly opened roads. The daughters, clad in homespun, traveled afoot and drove thirty head of sheep. The journey was performed in about three tedious weeks.

In 1778, he and his family found themselves in the middle of the Wyoming Valley Massacre. The British and Indians killed 300 at the fort near Wilkes-Barre, including one of Robert's four sons that was defending the fort. Those that had survived the original battle and surrendered were tortured and killed in a most gruesome fashion, including women and children. Many were burned alive inside the fort. Captain Bidlack who had been captured was bound, tortured and then thrown into a bonfire and held there by Indians with pitchforks until he died. It was Robert Jamison, Sr's. son Robert Jr. that died at the fort (although it is not known by this writer how his death resulted). While his sons John, William and Alexander Jamison ( the latter of whom may have been at the river fort with his mother as he was only about 14 years of age ), escaped the main fort and joined the rest of their family and their father at another smaller fort near the Susquehanna River, called Shawnee Fort. The entire family, along with Martha Espy Stewart (wife of Captain Lazarus Stewart, who died leading the charge out of the fort against the Indians ) then fled by boat and foot down the Susquehanna River bank to Fort Augusta at Stanbury, Pennsylvania, where they stayed for a few days. Then they proceeded on to Lancaster County , near Harrisburg where they had other family and friends. Martha Espy Stewart was accompanied on this journey by her youngest daughter Elizabeth, who would later marry Alexander Jamison and have a child by the name of Daniel. Two of Robert's son returned to the Wyoming Valley within a short time and two more within a year. The other members of the family didn't return until 1781. Their houses and contents had been burned by the enemy in 1778, but in 1780 and 1781 John Jamison with the help of his brothers erected a large log house on the site of their ruined homes which the families occupied upon their return while the other properties were restored.

In 1783 and 1784 the Yankee and Pennamite War continued to rage and Robert Jamison's family suffered much along with the other Connecticut settlers in this regard as aforesaid. On May 13th and 14th, 1784 at least one hundred and fifty families were dispossessed of their homes, robbed of their property, and driven into the wilderness by soldiers with bayonets. This happened to Robert entire family including Abigail and the other widows and their children. They were not allowed to use the river or the roads for their departure, but were required to go through the Lackawanna "Great Swamp" a total of 80 miles to the next inhabited place. It is said that upwards of 500 women and children were required to travel the muddy trail, cross rivers and swamps without shelter and on foot. many took sick and died. Robert Jamison and his family after spending about a month in the wilderness near the Delaware River, quietly returned to his home. However, he was captured and jailed in the guard house at Fort Wilks - Barre. Not withstanding his age, he was "kept bound and closely confined" for a number of days. During which time, his wife Agnes who was sick and bedridden from the wilderness trek, was " hoved out of the house in her bed by a party of assassins by Colonel Armstrong's orders" along with Abigail and her children. In October 1784, and after being thrown out of her home because she was attempting to take food to her jailed father-in-law Robert, Abigail journeyed 60 miles to Easton, Northampton County to lodge with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania a complaint against her prosecutors. When asked by the presiding judge, the Honorable George Bryan, whether she had an attorney, she replied that "all the Aldens are lawyers. I will attend to my own case". After presenting her case, the judge ordered a warrant for the arrest of Captain Petterson who was the leader of the prosecutors and she was eventually awarded a judgement against him and others. however, the judgement was never collected as the Connecticut settlers reached a settlement with the Pennsylvania Government that allowed them to keep their land provided they swear allegiance to Pennsylvania, which they did.

NOTE:
Robert and most of his sons were farmers with guns and served in the militias fighting the British and the Indians during the Revolutionary War as well as in the referenced Pennamite Wars. Historian Charles Miner commented that among Wyoming Valley pioneers, the Jamison Family were "second to none in respectability, service and suffering.

EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Mary Austin Hastings. Date of Birth: 1861, April Second, 8 hours 30 minutes AM. Place of Birth: 15 Nith Place, Dumfries. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber [Journeyman]. Name of Mother: Annie Hastings [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 October 28th Dumfries. Informant: Robert Hastings, father. Registered: 1861, April 22nd at Dumfries by Robert Martin, Registrar.
A different marriage date and place was given on this certificate, so I think it can be assumed that the parents were not married. I searched the 1851 Census for any trace of them, hoping that they were living with their parents at the time.

From: Johnson, Erica Date: 07/18/05 11:31:02 To: 'NAVYBEAR' Subject: RE: CLOSING THOUGHTS ON THE HASTINGS FAMILY
Dear Mr Hastings, Thank-you for your recent e-mail and the wonderful family tree that you attached, you have done so well to get such a long lineage back to the 15th Century.
Why did the family change their name form Hairstones to Hastings?, Well I notice that this change seems to take place around the late 1700's, when written records are becoming far more common. It is likely that the name was changed by the local Parish Session Clerk, possibly a new man taking over the job around that time decided that the name given to him by the family when the children were baptized sounded like Hastings, in the heavy local accent, and once changed it simply became the accepted spelling. At that time very few people could read or write and the family may not have realized that the Clerk had spelt the name differently from previous entries in the record.
If you want to check out the following website:

It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.

Any e mail message sent or received by the Council may require to be disclosed by the Council under the provisions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. ============================================================================ Note: Erica Johnson, Genealogist at the Dumfries/Galloway Library: July, 2005 I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers: “1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
================================================================================= DUMFRIES Scotland Library, Ms Erica Johnson conducted family genealogy research on June 24, 2005. I searched for the marriage certificate of Robert Hastings and Ann/Annie. Unfortunately I could not find a Marriage Certificate. I then searched for and obtained the Birth Certificate of Thomas Hastings, born in 1866 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Thomas Hastings. Date of Birth: 1866 – February Sixth, 5hours AM. Place of Birth: 44 Inverkip Street, Greenock. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber. Name of Mother: Ann Hastings, [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 September 28th in Paisley. Informant: Robert Hastings, Father, present. Registered: 1866, February 24th at Greenock by H Macmillian, Assistant Registrar.
I searched again for the parent’parents marriage certificate but still none was found. I searched for the Birth Certificate of Mary A Hastings born in 1861 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Mary Austin Hastings. Date of Birth: 1861, April Second, 8 hours 30 minutes AM. Place of Birth: 15 Nith Place, Dumfries. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber [Journeyman]. Name of Mother: Annie Hastings [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 October 28th Dumfries. Informant: Robert Hastings, father. Registered: 1861, April 22nd at Dumfries by Robert Martin, Registrar.
A different marriage date and place was given on this certificate, so I think it can be assumed that the parents were not married. I searched the 1851 Census for any trace of them, hoping that they were living with their parents at the time.
THE DUFF FAMILY I found Ann Duff in Dumfries: Parish of Dumfries, enumeration District No 9, Household No 154, Place: Townhead. James Duff, head of household, married, aged 45, A Mail Coachman, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Mary Duff, wife, married, aged 45, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire. John Duff, son, unmarried, aged 20, A Labourer, Gatehouse, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Duff, son, unmarried, aged 17, A Draper, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Ann Duff, daughter, aged 14, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Samuel Duff, son, aged 11, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. George Duff, son, aged 9, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Marion Duff, daughter, aged 6, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Houston, brother in law, married, aged 37, A General Labourer, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire.
I also found the family in the 1841 Census, Castle Douglas, Kelton Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire. Enumeration District No 1, Page 1, Place: St Andrew’s Street. James Duff, aged 30, Male Servant, born Scotland, this county. Mary Duff, aged 30, Female Servant, born Scotland, not this county. Mary Duff, aged 14, born Scotland, not this county. Janet Duff, aged 12, A Bonnet Maker Apprentice, born Scotland, this county. John Duff, aged 10, born Scotland, this county. James Duff, aged 7, born Scotland, this county. Anne Duff, aged 4, born Scotland, this county. Samuel Duff, aged 2, born Scotland, this county.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
I searched for Duff family baptism in the Old Parish Registers. I could only find the ones below:
Girthon Old Parish Register: “Janet Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 2nd November 1828.” “John Duff, son of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 25th July 1830.” “Isabella Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 22nd April 1832.” Kelton Old Parish Register: “Samuel Cowan Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 21st July 1839.” “George Gordon Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 5th September 1841.”
No other children’s baptisms were found, so in all James Duff and Mary Austin had the following children: Mary born circa 1827, Janet born in November 1828, John born in July 1830, Isabella born in April 1832, James born circa 1834, Anne born circa 1837, Samuel Cowan born in 1839, George Gordon born in 1841 and Marion born circa 1845.
James Duff was a Mail Coachman or Chaise Driver, and as the Mail Coaches would have also carried passengers in those days they are different descriptions of the same trade.
I did find one other item relating to the children of James Duff and Mary Austin. In the Dumfries and Galloway Standard and Advertiser Newspaper of the 12th November 1856, Page 4, Column G, there is the announcement of the marriage of Isabella Duff, third daughter of James Duff, Coach-Driver, Royal Mail, Stranraer. She married James Johnston, a Slater, on the 29th October 1856, at Mount Pleasant, Dumfries, by the Rev J M Austin of St Mary’s. A Photocopy is enclosed. This indicates that James Duff was the Royal Mail Coach Driver for the Stranraer Mail Coach. [I checked out Rev John Mein Austin in case he was a relation of Mary Austin, James Duff’s wife, but it does not appear so as he was born in Edinburgh in 1819.]
Mary Austin was baptized in Morton by Thornhill Parish:
Morton By Thornhill Old Parish Registers: “Mary Austin, daughter of James Austin and Janet Kerr, was baptized 31st March 1805.”
She had siblings baptized in Closeburn Parish, which is nearby.
Closeburn Old Parish Registers – Baptisms: “3rd January 1808 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Barnmuir, a daughter.” “10th January 1810 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Markeure, a son - John.” “27th June 1811 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Margeryhill, a daughter - Janet.” “5th October 1817 - James Austan and Jannet Keir, in Margeryhill, a son - Thomas.”
No marriage was found for James Austin and Janet Kerr/Carr/Keir, their baptisms were not found either. I checked the Closeburn Monument Inscriptions but no family gravestones were found.
James Duff, the Mail Coachman, was baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Register: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 12th January 1806.” He also had a brother: “John Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 27th June 1807.”
I also found the family buried in Castle Douglas, [Kelton]. Plot No 123: [a Winged Soul] “Erected by John Wilson, In Memory of James Wilson, who died May 22nd 1798, aged 17 years. Also of Elizabeth Hop, spouse of the said John Wilson, who died February 2nd 1800, aged 56 years. Also of Mary Hannay, his 2nd spouse, who died the 15th of December 1825, aged 76 years.” On the Reverse: “Here Lies Mary Anderson, who died January 1800, aged 80 years. Also his Grandson, John Duff, who died 29th July 1827, aged 20 years. Also his daughter, Mary Wilson, widow of James Duff, who died at Castle Douglas, 30th September 1852, aged 79 years.”
Mary Wilson was the daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope [not Hop as on the Monument Inscription]. She was baptized in Crossmichael Parish:
Crossmichael Old Parish Registers: “Mary Wilson, daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in Culgruff, was baptized 21st October 1773.”
Mary had an older brother and sister baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Registers: “James Wilson, son of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, was baptized 4th June 1780.” “Anne Wilson, daughter John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in the town of Carlingwalk, was baptized 7th March 1783.” Carlingwalk was the old name for Castle Douglas.
I was unable to find any further information on the Wilson and Hope families.
James Duff, married to Mary Wilson, was baptized in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright Old Parish Registers: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, spouses at Stockerton, was baptized 4th June 1763.”
He had other brothers and sisters also baptized in Kirkcudbright: “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockertown, was baptized 12th November 1761.” “John Duff, lawful son of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockerton, was baptized 18th March 1765.” “Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Little Stockerton, was baptized 13th February 1767, born 8th February 1767.” “Robert Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, was baptized 23rd January 1769.” “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, at Stockerton, was baptized 8th September 1771.”
James Duff and Janet Turner were married on the 27th November 1760 in Kirkcudbright Parish. The entry from the Proclamation Register is as follows: “Kirkcudbright – 14th November 1760 – In Presence of Baillie Reid, James Duff at Black Stockerton and Janet Turner at Little Stockerton gave in their names for proclamation in order to marriage. Samuel Gordon in Stockerton Cautr [Cautioner] for the man and James Turner for his daughter. Married 27th November 1760.”
No other Old Parish Register entries could be found for this family. However I found that they were buried in Kirkcudbright Churchyard:
Plot No 758: “Here lies the body of Janet McClure, spouse to James Turner in Little Stockerton, who departed this life March 1760 aged 58 years. Also the corps of John, James and Agnes children procreate between them, also here lies the said James Turner, who died 2nd March 1779, aged 82. Their daughter Janet Turner, spouse to James Duff in Little Stockertoun, she died 22nd May 1782, aged 52 years.” East Side: [A Winged Soul] “ Also here lyes the body of Elizabeth Turner, spouse to John Turner in East Bomby, who died 22nd September 1812, aged 72 years. Also the said John Turner, who died 24th November 1816, aged 85 years.”
So Janet Turner was the daughter of James Turner and Janet McClure.

There were two other Gravestones in Kirkcudbright Graveyard connected to the Duff Family:
Plot 759: [Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner] “ Sacred to the Memory of John Martin, Clock maker, Kirkcudbright, who departed this life October 1801, aged 91 years. Also Margaret McClure, his spouse, who died May 1781. Also their children John, Roger, and Isabella who died in infancy. And also their daughter Elizabeth, who departed this life August 3rd 1828, aged 81 years.” Reverse Side: “In Memory of John Bryce, who died at Clauchan of Tongland, 10th January 1816, aged 46 years. Marion, his daughter, died in infancy 1804. Marion Duff his relict, died at Hightae, Parish of Kelton, 2nd September 1844, aged 73 years. Also their son James, who died at Bengal, East Indies, 16th March 1849, aged 42 years.”
Plot 749: [Robert Duff, son James Duff and Janet Turner] “Erected in Memory of Robert Duff, late farmer in Little Sypland, who died 22nd March 1822, aged 51 years. Margaret Anderson, his spouse, who died at the same place, 13th April 1849, aged 77 years. Anna Duff, their daughter, who died 1st August 1844, aged 44 years. William Duff, their son, who died 16th June 1853, aged 46 years. Also Jessie Nairn, wife of Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 29th March 1873, aged 53 years. Also Jane Duff, spouse of the late James Hornell, Merchant, Kirkcudbright, who died at Little Sypland, 19th August 1875, aged 65 years. Also James Duff, who died at same place, 20th December 1876, aged 74 years. Also Margaret Duff, who died at same place, 8th January 1878, aged 73 years. Also Janet Duff, who died at High Barcaple, 12th May 1887, aged 92 years. Also the said Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 9th June 1896, aged 85 years.”
THE HASTINGS FAMILY
From the naming pattern of the children of Robert Hastings and Ann Duff, I would expect Robert Hastings parents to be a Thomas and a Margaret. I found the right family in the 1851 Census:
1851 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Household No 17, Place: Mosside.
Thomas Hastings, head of household, married, aged 56, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Margaret Hastings, wife, married, aged 54, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. James Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 28, A Labourer, born Crawford, Lanark. John Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 21, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Helen Hastings, daughter, unmarried, aged 17, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robert Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 15, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robina Hastings, daughter, aged 13, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire.
1841 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Page 3 & 4, Place: Mosside [number 3].
Thomas Hastings, aged 45, A Gardener, born Scotland, this county. Margaret Hastings, aged 40, born Scotland, this county. Janet Hastings, aged 15, born Scotland, this county. John Hastings, aged 12, born Scotland, this county. Ellen Hastings, aged 8, born Scotland, this county. Robert Hastings, aged 6, born Scotland, this county. Rabina Hastings, aged 4, born Scotland, this county.
James Hastings, the older son of the family was found in Durisdeer Parish, Enumeration District No 4, Page 2, Place: Kirkbride Outhouse.
James Hastings aged 15, An Agricultural Labourer, born Scotland, this county.
He was working for John McCall, aged 40, and his wife Agnes McCall, aged 30, who were farming at Kirkbride, with 5 female Agricultural Labourers living with them and their 1 year old daughter in the farmhouse and 2 male Agricultural Labourers, James Hastings and Robert Douglas [aged 10], living in the Outhouse of Kirkbride.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
The above Census returns show that Robert was the 5th child of the family, James Hastings born circa 1823, in Crawford, Lanark, Janet Hastings born circa 1826, John Hastings baptized 1829 in Durisdeer, Helen Hastings baptized in 1833 in Durisdeer, Robert Hastings baptized 1835 in Durisdeer and Robina Hastings born circa 1838 in Durisdeer.
I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers:
“1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
I did find a family Gravestone in Durisdeer Cemetery:
Plot 211: “In affectionate remembrance of Mary Douglas, wife of James Brown, who died at Mosside, Durisdeer, on the 13th July 1872, aged 71 years. Also the above James Brown who died at Thornhill, the 2nd March 1887, aged 89 years. In Loving Memory of Margaret Grierson, wife of Thomas Hastings, who died at Farthingbank, Durisdeer, June 4th 1857, aged 61 years. [born circa 1796] Also the above Thomas Hastings who died at Thornhill, October 12th 1877, aged 84 years. [born circa 1793]”

From: Johnson, Erica Date: 07/18/05 11:31:02 To: 'NAVYBEAR' Subject: RE: CLOSING THOUGHTS ON THE HASTINGS FAMILY
Dear Mr Hastings, Thank-you for your recent e-mail and the wonderful family tree that you attached, you have done so well to get such a long lineage back to the 15th Century.
Why did the family change their name form Hairstones to Hastings?, Well I notice that this change seems to take place around the late 1700's, when written records are becoming far more common. It is likely that the name was changed by the local Parish Session Clerk, possibly a new man taking over the job around that time decided that the name given to him by the family when the children were baptized sounded like Hastings, in the heavy local accent, and once changed it simply became the accepted spelling. At that time very few people could read or write and the family may not have realized that the Clerk had spelt the name differently from previous entries in the record.
If you want to check out the following website:
www.bennygillies.co.uk
It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.
Regards,

Any e mail message sent or received by the Council may require to be disclosed by the Council under the provisions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. ============================================================================ Note: Erica Johnson, Genealogist at the Dumfries/Galloway Library: July, 2005 I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers: “1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
================================================================================= DUMFRIES Scotland Library, Ms Erica Johnson conducted family genealogy research on June 24, 2005. I searched for the marriage certificate of Robert Hastings and Ann/Annie. Unfortunately I could not find a Marriage Certificate. I then searched for and obtained the Birth Certificate of Thomas Hastings, born in 1866 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Thomas Hastings. Date of Birth: 1866 – February Sixth, 5hours AM. Place of Birth: 44 Inverkip Street, Greenock. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber. Name of Mother: Ann Hastings, [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 September 28th in Paisley. Informant: Robert Hastings, Father, present. Registered: 1866, February 24th at Greenock by H Macmillian, Assistant Registrar.
I searched again for the parent’s marriage certificate but still none was found. I searched for the Birth Certificate of Mary A Hastings born in 1861 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Mary Austin Hastings. Date of Birth: 1861, April Second, 8 hours 30 minutes AM. Place of Birth: 15 Nith Place, Dumfries. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber [Journeyman]. Name of Mother: Annie Hastings [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 October 28th Dumfries. Informant: Robert Hastings, father. Registered: 1861, April 22nd at Dumfries by Robert Martin, Registrar.
A different marriage date and place was given on this certificate, so I think it can be assumed that the parents were not married. I searched the 1851 Census for any trace of them, hoping that they were living with their parents at the time.
THE DUFF FAMILY I found Ann Duff in Dumfries: Parish of Dumfries, enumeration District No 9, Household No 154, Place: Townhead. James Duff, head of household, married, aged 45, A Mail Coachman, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Mary Duff, wife, married, aged 45, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire. John Duff, son, unmarried, aged 20, A Labourer, Gatehouse, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Duff, son, unmarried, aged 17, A Draper, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Ann Duff, daughter, aged 14, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Samuel Duff, son, aged 11, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. George Duff, son, aged 9, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Marion Duff, daughter, aged 6, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Houston, brother in law, married, aged 37, A General Labourer, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire.
I also found the family in the 1841 Census, Castle Douglas, Kelton Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire. Enumeration District No 1, Page 1, Place: St Andrew’s Street. James Duff, aged 30, Male Servant, born Scotland, this county. Mary Duff, aged 30, Female Servant, born Scotland, not this county. Mary Duff, aged 14, born Scotland, not this county. Janet Duff, aged 12, A Bonnet Maker Apprentice, born Scotland, this county. John Duff, aged 10, born Scotland, this county. James Duff, aged 7, born Scotland, this county. Anne Duff, aged 4, born Scotland, this county. Samuel Duff, aged 2, born Scotland, this county.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
I searched for Duff family baptism in the Old Parish Registers. I could only find the ones below:
Girthon Old Parish Register: “Janet Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 2nd November 1828.” “John Duff, son of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 25th July 1830.” “Isabella Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 22nd April 1832.” Kelton Old Parish Register: “Samuel Cowan Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 21st July 1839.” “George Gordon Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 5th September 1841.”
No other children’s baptisms were found, so in all James Duff and Mary Austin had the following children: Mary born circa 1827, Janet born in November 1828, John born in July 1830, Isabella born in April 1832, James born circa 1834, Anne born circa 1837, Samuel Cowan born in 1839, George Gordon born in 1841 and Marion born circa 1845.
James Duff was a Mail Coachman or Chaise Driver, and as the Mail Coaches would have also carried passengers in those days they are different descriptions of the same trade.
I did find one other item relating to the children of James Duff and Mary Austin. In the Dumfries and Galloway Standard and Advertiser Newspaper of the 12th November 1856, Page 4, Column G, there is the announcement of the marriage of Isabella Duff, third daughter of James Duff, Coach-Driver, Royal Mail, Stranraer. She married James Johnston, a Slater, on the 29th October 1856, at Mount Pleasant, Dumfries, by the Rev J M Austin of St Mary’s. A Photocopy is enclosed. This indicates that James Duff was the Royal Mail Coach Driver for the Stranraer Mail Coach. [I checked out Rev John Mein Austin in case he was a relation of Mary Austin, James Duff’s wife, but it does not appear so as he was born in Edinburgh in 1819.]
Mary Austin was baptized in Morton by Thornhill Parish:
Morton By Thornhill Old Parish Registers: “Mary Austin, daughter of James Austin and Janet Kerr, was baptized 31st March 1805.”
She had siblings baptized in Closeburn Parish, which is nearby.
Closeburn Old Parish Registers – Baptisms: “3rd January 1808 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Barnmuir, a daughter.” “10th January 1810 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Markeure, a son - John.” “27th June 1811 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Margeryhill, a daughter - Janet.” “5th October 1817 - James Austan and Jannet Keir, in Margeryhill, a son - Thomas.”
No marriage was found for James Austin and Janet Kerr/Carr/Keir, their baptisms were not found either. I checked the Closeburn Monument Inscriptions but no family gravestones were found.
James Duff, the Mail Coachman, was baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Register: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 12th January 1806.” He also had a brother: “John Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 27th June 1807.”
I also found the family buried in Castle Douglas, [Kelton]. Plot No 123: [a Winged Soul] “Erected by John Wilson, In Memory of James Wilson, who died May 22nd 1798, aged 17 years. Also of Elizabeth Hop, spouse of the said John Wilson, who died February 2nd 1800, aged 56 years. Also of Mary Hannay, his 2nd spouse, who died the 15th of December 1825, aged 76 years.” On the Reverse: “Here Lies Mary Anderson, who died January 1800, aged 80 years. Also his Grandson, John Duff, who died 29th July 1827, aged 20 years. Also his daughter, Mary Wilson, widow of James Duff, who died at Castle Douglas, 30th September 1852, aged 79 years.”
Mary Wilson was the daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope [not Hop as on the Monument Inscription]. She was baptized in Crossmichael Parish:
Crossmichael Old Parish Registers: “Mary Wilson, daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in Culgruff, was baptized 21st October 1773.”
Mary had an older brother and sister baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Registers: “James Wilson, son of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, was baptized 4th June 1780.” “Anne Wilson, daughter John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in the town of Carlingwalk, was baptized 7th March 1783.” Carlingwalk was the old name for Castle Douglas.
I was unable to find any further information on the Wilson and Hope families.
James Duff, married to Mary Wilson, was baptized in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright Old Parish Registers: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, spouses at Stockerton, was baptized 4th June 1763.”
He had other brothers and sisters also baptized in Kirkcudbright: “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockertown, was baptized 12th November 1761.” “John Duff, lawful son of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockerton, was baptized 18th March 1765.” “Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Little Stockerton, was baptized 13th February 1767, born 8th February 1767.” “Robert Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, was baptized 23rd January 1769.” “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, at Stockerton, was baptized 8th September 1771.”
James Duff and Janet Turner were married on the 27th November 1760 in Kirkcudbright Parish. The entry from the Proclamation Register is as follows: “Kirkcudbright – 14th November 1760 – In Presence of Baillie Reid, James Duff at Black Stockerton and Janet Turner at Little Stockerton gave in their names for proclamation in order to marriage. Samuel Gordon in Stockerton Cautr [Cautioner] for the man and James Turner for his daughter. Married 27th November 1760.”
No other Old Parish Register entries could be found for this family. However I found that they were buried in Kirkcudbright Churchyard:
Plot No 758: “Here lies the body of Janet McClure, spouse to James Turner in Little Stockerton, who departed this life March 1760 aged 58 years. Also the corps of John, James and Agnes children procreate between them, also here lies the said James Turner, who died 2nd March 1779, aged 82. Their daughter Janet Turner, spouse to James Duff in Little Stockertoun, she died 22nd May 1782, aged 52 years.” East Side: [A Winged Soul] “ Also here lyes the body of Elizabeth Turner, spouse to John Turner in East Bomby, who died 22nd September 1812, aged 72 years. Also the said John Turner, who died 24th November 1816, aged 85 years.”
So Janet Turner was the daughter of James Turner and Janet McClure.

There were two other Gravestones in Kirkcudbright Graveyard connected to the Duff Family:
Plot 759: [Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner] “ Sacred to the Memory of John Martin, Clock maker, Kirkcudbright, who departed this life October 1801, aged 91 years. Also Margaret McClure, his spouse, who died May 1781. Also their children John, Roger, and Isabella who died in infancy. And also their daughter Elizabeth, who departed this life August 3rd 1828, aged 81 years.” Reverse Side: “In Memory of John Bryce, who died at Clauchan of Tongland, 10th January 1816, aged 46 years. Marion, his daughter, died in infancy 1804. Marion Duff his relict, died at Hightae, Parish of Kelton, 2nd September 1844, aged 73 years. Also their son James, who died at Bengal, East Indies, 16th March 1849, aged 42 years.”
Plot 749: [Robert Duff, son James Duff and Janet Turner] “Erected in Memory of Robert Duff, late farmer in Little Sypland, who died 22nd March 1822, aged 51 years. Margaret Anderson, his spouse, who died at the same place, 13th April 1849, aged 77 years. Anna Duff, their daughter, who died 1st August 1844, aged 44 years. William Duff, their son, who died 16th June 1853, aged 46 years. Also Jessie Nairn, wife of Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 29th March 1873, aged 53 years. Also Jane Duff, spouse of the late James Hornell, Merchant, Kirkcudbright, who died at Little Sypland, 19th August 1875, aged 65 years. Also James Duff, who died at same place, 20th December 1876, aged 74 years. Also Margaret Duff, who died at same place, 8th January 1878, aged 73 years. Also Janet Duff, who died at High Barcaple, 12th May 1887, aged 92 years. Also the said Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 9th June 1896, aged 85 years.”
THE HASTINGS FAMILY
From the naming pattern of the children of Robert Hastings and Ann Duff, I would expect Robert Hastings parents to be a Thomas and a Margaret. I found the right family in the 1851 Census:
1851 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Household No 17, Place: Mosside.
Thomas Hastings, head of household, married, aged 56, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Margaret Hastings, wife, married, aged 54, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. James Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 28, A Labourer, born Crawford, Lanark. John Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 21, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Helen Hastings, daughter, unmarried, aged 17, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robert Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 15, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robina Hastings, daughter, aged 13, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire.
1841 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Page 3 & 4, Place: Mosside [number 3].
Thomas Hastings, aged 45, A Gardener, born Scotland, this county. Margaret Hastings, aged 40, born Scotland, this county. Janet Hastings, aged 15, born Scotland, this county. John Hastings, aged 12, born Scotland, this county. Ellen Hastings, aged 8, born Scotland, this county. Robert Hastings, aged 6, born Scotland, this county. Rabina Hastings, aged 4, born Scotland, this county.
James Hastings, the older son of the family was found in Durisdeer Parish, Enumeration District No 4, Page 2, Place: Kirkbride Outhouse.
James Hastings aged 15, An Agricultural Labourer, born Scotland, this county.
He was working for John McCall, aged 40, and his wife Agnes McCall, aged 30, who were farming at Kirkbride, with 5 female Agricultural Labourers living with them and their 1 year old daughter in the farmhouse and 2 male Agricultural Labourers, James Hastings and Robert Douglas [aged 10], living in the Outhouse of Kirkbride.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
The above Census returns show that Robert was the 5th child of the family, James Hastings born circa 1823, in Crawford, Lanark, Janet Hastings born circa 1826, John Hastings baptized 1829 in Durisdeer, Helen Hastings baptized in 1833 in Durisdeer, Robert Hastings baptized 1835 in Durisdeer and Robina Hastings born circa 1838 in Durisdeer.
I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers:
“1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
I did find a family Gravestone in Durisdeer Cemetery:
Plot 211: “In affectionate remembrance of Mary Douglas, wife of James Brown, who died at Mosside, Durisdeer, on the 13th July 1872, aged 71 years. Also the above James Brown who died at Thornhill, the 2nd March 1887, aged 89 years. In Loving Memory of Margaret Grierson, wife of Thomas Hastings, who died at Farthingbank, Durisdeer, June 4th 1857, aged 61 years. [born circa 1796] Also the above Thomas Hastings who died at Thornhill, October 12th 1877, aged 84 years. [born circa 1793]”

A copy of of Robert Jamison's Will is on file at the Todd County, Kentucky Court House. Will is dated February 13, 1826. The Will names Enos Jamison as one of the Executors.

Robert was apparently married twice. His first wife, Ruth Webster, gave birth to 4 sons, George, Thomas, Robert and Isaac. The remaining children were apparently by his second wife, Agnes Nancy Edgar, the children were, sons, Enos, Ephraim, Andrew Jackson, Presley M. and William. The daughters were, Sidney, Permelia, Rose Alinda (Ring) , Rebecca and Sara.

Robert moved from Chester County, Pennsylvania to Botetourt County, Virginia on September 26th 1786. Record of Robert's Marriage and death and George's, his first son by his first marriage, birth, marriage and death records were all recorded in the family Bible. A copy of the record is in the Library at Russellville, Pope County, Arkansas. Marriage of his son, George Jamison, is listed in the "Kentucky Marriage Records", published by Genealogical Publishing Company and shows Robert Jemison as a witness.

Robert Jamison and his wife Nancy were members of the Red River Baptist Church, Robertson County, Tennessee. First record was recorded on Saturday, October 12, 1812, last record was dated November 6, 1813. Son Presley (D) Jamison and a Jane Jamison also show on the records dated Friday July 15, 1826.

Robert Henry Jamison / Jemison came from Botetourt County, Virginia according to the Bible records of his family. Robert and his family migrated September 26th, 1786 from Chester County, Pennsylvania and settled in Botetourt County, Virginia. The family left Virginia on September 17, 1798 and settled in Logan County, Kentucky. He may have a brother, John Jamison, who was also residing in Botetourt County as well. In Logan County, Kentucky in 1800, there were three Jamison's, Andrew, Robert and Wiliam they were probably brothers, and all were from Botetourt ( Rockbridge) County, Virginia. The Andrew Jamison taxed in 1800 is apparently not the same Andrew Jamison listed for a child of Robert and Ruth since he would have been only 13 years old at the time of the 1800 Tax List in which Andrew Jamison is listed on. Robert Jamison may also have a brother, John Jamison, residing at the same time in Botetourt County, Virginia, as he. This John Jamison had a son also named John who married Elizabeth Douglas: these marriage returns are as follows;

Robert Jemison and Agnes gar, 22 March 1791

John Jamison and Elizabeth Douglass, Daughter of John Douglas, bond 24 February 1807. Ministers return shows marriage March 5, 180 by D. Blair, dated January 8, 1807, Lexington, Kentucky.

Robert moved from Chester County, Pennsylvania to Botetourt County, Virginia 2 October 1786. Record of Robert's marriage and death, George's birth, marriage and death were recorded in the family bible. A copy of the record was in the Library in Russellville, Pope County, Arkansas. Marriage of his son George Jamison listed in "Kentucky Marriage Records" published by Genealogical Publishing Company shows Robert Jemison as a witnes

A Robert Jemison of Voluntown, Connecticut married Nancy Dickson in North Stonington, Connecticut,
24 November 1748. To them was born a son Robert Jemison 10 June 1755. (Voluntown Vital Records)

John became a Quaker after his second marriage and was a contributor to the building fund of the meeting house, of the Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting, when this Monthly Meeting was established in 1739. He was named with Nicholas Stone in 1741 as an overseer. He was appointed with Richard Ballard to attend the marriage (civil ceremony) of Manoah Chiles to Anne Cheadle in 1742. He continued to serve as an overseer of the Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting. He had removed from Amelia County by 1744 when David Terrell was appointed overseer in the room of John Hubbard.

WILLIAM JAMISON OF MIDDLESEX COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS

[10000-10499]

(All red colored names indicates my(author's) descent from William Jameson(10000-1))

10000-2 WILLIAM JAMISON [William?], was born some time circa 1700 possibly in Ireland, County Londonderry, the probable first son of William Jamison. He died circa 1772-74 in Windham, Rockingham county, New Hampshire. Mr. Jamison married Margaret Smith, born circa 1700, a younger daughter of John Smith.

Children:

((1-3) b. Massachusetts?; (4) b. Windham, NH.)

(1) 10020 Thomas, b.c. 1725; m. 1751, Mary ______.

(2) 10021 Martha, b.c. 1726; m. Mr. McConnell.

(3) 10022 William, b.c. 1728; married; children?

(4) 10023 James, b. 1736; d. 7/27/1812; m. 1763, Mary Smith.

And others???

Notes:

The first records of William Jameson appear as land deeds. On January 17, 1734/35(a) he acquired for 50 pounds current money a thirty acre tract from James McKeen. Mr Jameson, read as Jemison(Jemifon in old style) was a resident of Billerica, Massachusetts Bay Colony. His ancestry is clouded by a lack of records, but his settling in Nutfield, New Hampshire may be an indication of his relationship with other Jamesons in the area. A 1741 deed by Janet Cargill of Londonderry states "...In consideration of Good Will & Affection hath Given Granted unto my Well Beloved Brother William Jamison of T. Londonderry, Yeoman..." (b) Jenet Smith Cargill(born 1664, Macosquin, Londonderry County, Ireland and died 1745, Londonderry, NH) married 1680, Captain David Cargill, a leading financial supporter of the 1718 emigration from Coleraine, Ireland to Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony. (S1) No doubt Mrs. Cargill referred to William Jamison not as a brother, but rather a brother-in-law, since Janet Cargill was a daughter of John Smith of Ireland. Capt. Cargill was an Elder in the Ulster Presbyterian Church at Aghadowey, Ire. They sailed to Boston in 1718 and in the spring of 1719 settled into Nutfield, NH. *(1) At a time of great religious trouble in Ulster a petition dated March of 1718 to Samuel Shute, then Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, was sent to secure some lands in New England to found a colony *(2). Rev. William Boyd presented the Petition to the Governor, personally, before returning to Ireland with good news for his congregation and the surrounding ones. From June to November of 1718 a considerable wave of ships set sailed from Ireland, embarked on a perilous journey over the High Seas to the roughed New England terrain, with trepidation yet filled with hope and excitement. Rev. James MacGregor came over with his Presbyterian congregation on the ship, "William", on August 4. Among the passengers were William Jameson, John Jameson, James McKeen, and Revs. Boyd and MacGregor. Some of the first people to reach Nutfield were James McKeen, James Gregg, John Barnett, Archibald Clendenin, Capt. David Cargill, John Mitchell, John Sterrett, James and Allen Anderson, Randal Alexander, James Clark, James Nesmith, Robert Weir{Wear}, John Morrison, Samuel Allison, and Thomas Steele.

While Rev. Boyd and some of these families left Boston in September to sail into Casco Bay, Maine a few days later, it is known that the William Jameson listed on Shute's list and noted in the ship's, Robert's, logs is probably the same William Jameson who eventually wound up in Falmouth, ME. In 1721 an early record of Falmouth, Maine shows a William Jameson, a son of another William Jameson of Omagh, County Tyrone, Ireland living in those parts. One record reads, "Randal McDonald is also mentioned as of the company which spent the winter of 1718-19 in Falmouth, and with him William Jameson." Our ancestor, William Jameson, settled in Billerica, MA as MacGregor did in Dracut before moving on to Nutfield. While MacGregor left Dracut, a town near to Billerica, to settle in 1719 in Nutfield, it appears Jameson did not.

After the winter of 1718, Rev. Boyd and his congregation moved on to Haverhill, Ma in 1719. Rev. MacGregor, who had settled in at Dracut rather than risk the voyage to Maine during the winter, settled in Nutfield during the spring, too. Most of these Scots-Irish came out of the same area in Ireland. McKeen was from Balleymoney, County Antrim; Gregg of Macosquin, City. Londonderry; Cargill of Aghadowey, Cty. Londonderry; Bell of Balleymoney; Morrisons of Aghadowey; and so on. Most lived along the banks or in the vicinity of the Bann River that traversed northwest to southeast through the border lands of Londonderry and Antrim counties.

From this area of the Bann Valley came several Jamesons who migrated at various times and settled, coincidentally enough, in Nutfield, New Hampshire: Jonathan Jamison, prior to 1725; William Jamison, prior to 1733; Thomas Jamison, 1738; Hugh Jamison, 1746; Alexander Jamison, prior to 1746; and Elizabeth Jamison Boyd Woods, 1746. The latter four were from the larger town of Coleraine, while Jonathan Jamison was from Kilrea where a brother, Edward, lived as a farmer. Some evidence suggests that the father of these Jamisons was one William Jamison, a Presbyterian Scots-Irish, whose family emigrated to Ulster from Argyle shire, Scotland around 1612-19. William Jamison Sr. served during the siege of Londonderry in 1689. Research shows that they all came from the Bann Valley, lived within ten miles of each other, and emigrated, while at different times, to the same area in New Hampshire. Records also indicate that many of these same people used the same man, Robert Parkinson(of Bavagh, Londonderry Co.), as their Power-of-Attorney in Coleraine in their absence. On August 4, 1746 Parkinson(3) with Hugh Jamison and Elizabeth Woods, all were aboard the ship "Molly" when it left Port Rush, Ireland and headed for Boston. It is known, though, that Hugh Jameson, Thomas Jameson, Alexander Jameson, Elizabeth Jamison Boyd Woods, and three Jameson daughters, sisters of the above people, were brothers and sisters. They were also first cousins to Edward Jamison of Kilrea, Ireland whose brother, Jonathan, emigrated prior to 1725 and settled in Nutfield. Circumstantial evidence suggests that William Jameson was related to these Jamesons as well. Thomas Jamison sailed July 26, 1738 on board the ship Lime from Port Rush, Ireland. The ship arrived November 16 in Boston of that year commanded by Capt. Gabriel Black. There were 123 immigrants of whom nineteen were named: Thomas Jamison, Nathaniel Furber, George Marshall, William Leus, William Cox, Alexander Nesmith, Abraham Weir, Archibald Fullerton, Alexander Caldwell, William Dickey and his wife, David Griffin, Robert Griffin, John Arbuckle, George Robinson, Thomas Galt, George Galt, John Ball, and Mary Smith.

===========Notes of Interest ===========

Jonathan Jamison was a cordwainer and a farmer from Dumboe parish, Ireland in the Bann Valley. He emigrated prior to 1725 settling in that year in Nutfield, NH. He was a party to several land deeds and a signer of the "Proposals of Peace" which a cousin, William Jamison, also signed April 19, 1737. His wife's name was Margaret. Who she was, and whatever vital statistics for her have not been discovered as yet. Jamison had a brother, Edward Jamison, still living in Ireland. Born about 1690, Edward, resided in Kilrea, Ulster, Bann Valley. His eldest son, John Jamison, resided in nearby Balleystroan, Dumboe(Dumbough) parish. Edward Jamison had ten children. Both men had a sister, still living in Ireland with two children. According to several instruments of deed transactions Edward and Jonathan Jamison were brothers-in-law of Elizabeth Woods Boyd who married a Jamison, probably a brother of theirs. They were "intimately" in this case closely related to Margaret M'Conoghy, of Coleraine, though that relationship has not been relatively defined. John Jamison was Edward's son and Jonathan's nephew. On December 4, 1741, Jonathan Jamison wrote out his will, the following being...

Everything, basically, was set off to his nephew John in Ireland. In 1742, John Jamison had Robert Parkinson as his Power-of-Attorney to handle the manner of his uncle's farm. In 1746, Jamison sold the land for 5 pounds current money to his attorney, Parkinson, who in turn emigrates with Hugh and Elizabeth Jamison to New England settling upon Jonathan Jamison's old lot in Nutfield, now Londonderry.

==============end ==============

Mr. Jameson married Margaret, it appears strongly a younger daughter of John Smith of Macosquin, County Londonderry, Ireland. Mr. Smith emigrated from Scotland in 1610 at the time of the Derry Plantation. Mrs. Jameson was a younger sister of Mrs. Jenet Cargill of Londonderry, NH. Along with these Smiths was Mary Smith, whose father, Thomas, was from Ireland and emigrated to America and settled in the town of Hampton, New Hampshire. With this family three brothers, Francis, Robert, and Joseph Smith emigrated from the Bann Valley in northern Ireland and settled about 1750 in the eastern part of Windham, NH now presently in Salem, NH. It is probable that they were brothers of Margaret Smith and related to Mary Smith, who married James Jameson(10023), a son of William Jamison of Windham(Londonderry, Nutfield), NH. James Smith was a Ruling Elder and a Commissioner in 1694 at Macosquin, Ireland.

Robert Jemison III left Lincoln County, Georgia for Wilkinson County, later called Twiggs County, Georgia when he was about 18 years of age. He and Margaret did not have any children until they were married about five years. All of their children were born in Perry County, Alabama but two. Margaret was only 14 years old when they married. Robert had purchased land in Twiggs and Laurens Counties, Georgia. I have their land records. The frontier was growing westward and Robert moved to west Alabama. Robert settled in Perry County, Alabama where he bought over 3000 acres of land and built a mill. He had farming and milling chores and so his slaves did a lot of the work. He built a grist mill and cotton gin about 12 miles from his home. In the early days he furnished flour from his mills to a good portion of south Alabama. His wagon's were loaded with "Jemison's Best". He bought all the good wheat he could find and always paid cash for it. Talladega County, Alabama was formed December 18, 1832 and Robert and family moved there in 1833. He bought 2,880 acres of land from the Creek Indians which cost him $6,350.00. I have copies of these deeds. Robert moved his family into a 2 room Log cabin in Talladeag, Alabama in 1833. It was located about 200 yards from where Shadrack Mims Jemison built his home Sunnyside. It was on the south side of the farm road leading to the family cemetery now called Jemison Cemetery in Talladega. In later years Jemison's Mill became known as Turner's Mill. By 1839 Robert owned about 4,038 acres of land in Talladega County, Alabama. The land was previously Creek Indian land. Robert was 77 years old when he married Sally Hinkle, and she bore him 2 sons. They were divorced and she went to Texas to live.

Robert Mims Jemison Senior owned a business in Talladega, Alabama. He was
a wealthy man and came from a wealthy family. The relatives did not like it when
Grandpa Jemison recognized us as his family. We lived there.
After Grandpa died we had lost any protection he would have given us when
someone ordered a KKK cross burned in our front yard and told us to get out of
Talladega after Grandpa died in 1930. We went to his funeral.
We moved to Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama about 1931 .

There was one person we knew who we thought gave the order. But we couldn't figure out why she wanted us to leave so badly that they sent the KKK. That is a night I will never forget. Mama came into our room and took us to the back room where my two younger sisters were sleeping. Papa sat at the front window and watched. They were not chanting or yelling. Just said" leave town" Even now I can not watch scenes in a movie or on TV that has a KKK scene in it. My parents were good parents, Papa worked, we went to school and church, and Papa's half aunt visited us. We would go down to the mill Grandpa owned and play around the docks while Grandpa and Papa talked. I remember running up to Grandpa to get a hug, then the rest of my sisters did too. Grandpa was very kind to us. The day after the KKK appeared Papa moved us to Birmingham, later finding to more Jemison relatives living there we move to a small town and finished growing up there. Papa and Mama were always afraid that that might happen again and even up until we were all safely married and had children they watched very closely to see if we were found. And that is what happened in the good old USA in 1931! The KKK is alive and active today and still in Alabama. I found a map showing the cities they were in all over the USA. As you can see Grandpa married two and a half months after Papa was born. Then also named a son Robert Mims Jemison Jr. Grandpa married Mary Cheves Howard.
 
Jamison, Robert Mims Sr. (I4894)

Robert Mims Jemison//Floyd married first Ellen Stovall and had 5 children. Robert Mims (Jemis
on) Floyd was the illegitimate son of Robert Mims Jemison and Ellen Floyd. Papa was just 3 months old when Grandpa Robert Mims Jemison married Mary Cheves Howard. They had a son they named Robert Mims Jemison Jr. Robert Mims (Jemison) Floyd married second Annie Lou Boswell and they are my parents. We lived in Talladega and knew Grandpa Jemison. Used to visit him at the mill and while he and Papa talked we kids played around the docks, sometimes running up to get a hug from Grandpa. His wife Mary Cheves Howard had died . When he died in 1930 we went to his funeral. That may be the reason someone ordered the KKK to come to our home one night and tell us to"get out of town". Whoever ordered it must have told them to not harm us or we might have been abused, The KKK did not yell loud and did not sing or chant. It was a very stealthy mission they were obeying. We moved the next day to Birmingham and after awhile there Papa learned of two of the Jemison,s living there so we moved again to a smaller city about an hour from Birmingham. Our parents never felt really safe from another KKK episode and were constantly alert for signs of resentment against us. We never knew why as Papa was working, we were in school, going to church etc. BUT there was someone there who must have been ashamed of Papa's father, Robert Mims Jemison Sr. I will never forget that night or hearing my Mother praying as she had taken us girls to the back bedroom while Papa just looked out the front window and stayed quiet. Never will I forget my younger sister asking Mama "why they burnin' Jesus' cross?" To think that such an incident could occur in America in the 1930's is incomprehensible....much less that someone thought they wanted to"keep secret a family indiscretion". I do not accept any blame for what my ancestors did that was wrong, neither do I accept the acclaim for the good things they did. But seeing that fiery cross is something no one should ever have to see!!! Afterwards Papa and Mama thought they had who it was figured out. After researching my roots I now know they were right in thinking it was a Jemison female who was the most prominent woman in Talladega at that time. I just hope that whoever it was asked God's forgiveness before they died.' Caus I know Grandpa and Papa are right now dancing an Irish jig up there with all my siblings. I am the last surviving child of Robert Mims (Jemison) Floyd and my Papa deserves to have his heritage told! He never sought revenge of any kind and was the best father anyone could have! He never used the name Jemison but I put that in for reference. He was Robert Mims Floyd and that is on his death certificate. MY PAPA IS A JEMISON and therefore I carry that blood line also.

Shadrach Mims III was a Revolutionary Soldier who did his Patriotic Service in Georgia. From the
Rosters of Military Collections, Georgia Dept. Archives and History we find that Shadrack Mimms served with Captain Burrell Smith's Company of Volunteers in the State of Georgia, Wilkes Co. commanded by Col. John Dooley the first of June 1778 to first of August 1778. The DAR CENTENNIAL EDITION, page 2039, says Shadrack: born abt 1765, died 23 Nov 1807 in Georgia, married Elizabeth ---?.(He married Elizabeth KIRKHAM-AYERS, widow of Abraham Ayers.)

Shadrack Mims Jemison was named for his maternal grandfather Shadrack Mims.He was only 6 years old when his father moved from Twiggs County, Georgia about 1819. His father lived in a small log house 200 yards or so from where Shadrack built a home until he could build a more suitable one. His father Robert III had given him a plantation when he was 21 and some slaves, along with a deed for some land. It was on this land that he built his new home. He completed this home in 1848 but his father did not give him a deed until Jan. 1, 1852 and his siblings received deeds from their father. Shadrack married Frances Matherson Groce and that is when Frances "Mattie" named their home "Sunnyside" .A family cemetery nearby was also named "Sunnyside". It later was referred to as Jemison House and is still standing today. In the book "Fascinating Tales of Talladega", by Randolph F. Blackford , published by Brannon Printing Company, Talladega, Alabama. We find these interesting stories: "In the slave quarters behind the house it is said that the Master used to punish refractory slaves by putting them in very heavy irons." This the slaves resented intensely, and ever since it was done the manacled slaves return to their quarters and rattle their chains so strongly that they are heard in the Big House. Actually when you ask someone they will say they did not hear but point out someone who did. And so it went,and no one ever really investigated the story.
Another story with which good narrators make their listeners hair stand on end is the tale of how someone was killed in the Big House in the War Between the States. As he fell no one was near to help and the blood ran out so profusely on the floor that a great stain was made. Even today, they say, in spite of hundreds of washings and scrubbings the stain is still there. This can be verified (?) as well as the other "ghost story"! according to the author of this book. This home is about a mile or so off what is now known as Jemison Highway in Talladega, Alabama. ( Too bad my siblings and I did not know of these stories when we were in school there, or as it is said today. we would have" had a ball "on the play grounds!) The Jemison House is located seven miles north of Talladega off Alabama Highway 21; It was built as a two story with a brick first floor and and a frame second floor. It is plantation style with a central portico.

No. 1193 From "The Jameson's in America"

Mr. Jameson was born on one of the many picturesque islands which dot Passamaquoddy Bay. In youth he was a fisher-lad, then a sailor before the mast and on the quarter-deck, later a ship-wright, and when about thirty-five years of age he settled down to the life of a frontier farmer at Pleasant Ridge, then in the very heart of the backwoods of New Brunswick. Here he lived until his children were fully fledged for flight from the parental nest, and had scattered to build homes of their own, when he removed to St. Stephen, N.B., where he still resides, wearing lightly more than ninety years.

He is hale and vigorous, equal to long walks in the country and to writing a clear hand without the use of spectacles. At the age of eighty-eight he wrote the following letter, inclosing a beautiful little flower:

St. Stephen Sep 5 1896
Dear Friend:

Your letter came to hand all right and I was glad to hear of your welfare. I have been quite poorly for awhile but am better now. We have fine weather and good crops. We have peace and plenty and I consider these very great blessings. - Bless the Lord, O! my soul and all that is within me - Praise ye the Lord. Love to all
Charles Jameson

A thrilling incident is told of Mrs. Jameson, by her daughter, Mrs. Craig:

It appears that in March of 1855, during the absence of Mr. Jameson and the older sons, he, having gone a great distance for family supplies there being no stores near at hand, the family at home ran short of food; accordingly Mrs. Jameson leaving the oldest daughter with the six youngest children, the youngest an unweaned infant, started for the nearest neighbor's, a half mile away, to borrow food for the next day. She did not duly return, the snow began to fall, night came on, eight o'clock, nine o'clock, and no mother to nurse the baby and see the children in bed. With baby in arms the daughter fell asleep but soon awoke and realized the alarming situation, the boy George peered into the darkness, then rushed out, called and shortly blew the dinner-horn long and loud, but no mother responded nor did the neighbors hear the alarm. Finally the children all went to bed, the baby crying piteously. When the morning came the settlement was roused and astir to find the lost mother. The snow was deep and drifted, but soon after starting in search they met the lost woman struggling along the highway toward her home. It seems she had mistaken the way the evening before, became bewildered by the snow and darkness, and finally felt compelled to give herself up as lost for the night. She made the best of the situation, took refuge beneath a clump of evergreens, where boughs laden with snow made a protecting shelter. Here she sat down to watch and pray until the morning. And as the first dawn revealed the east, the weary, cold, and anxious mother was on her homeward way. When met she was taken into a sleigh to the nearest neighbors, given a warm dinner and dry clothing. And in the afternoon of that day she was once more in the midst of her happy group of children and passing back and forth to the music of the spinning wheel, preparing yarn for a web of homespun.

Mr. and Mrs. Jameson celebrated the sixty-fifth anniversary of their marriage December 16, 1895, and a brief month later death sundered the silken bonds and Mr. Jameson was left alone.

LOVE, GRIEF, HOPE.

Beside a new made grave he stood,
His look was sad, his face was pale,
Full fourscore years he had withstood
The winter's frost and summer's gale.

On land or sea, through many a clime
He'd proudly braved life's tempest blast,
Till now, long past his manhood's prime,
The shades of night were gathering fast.

Silent he stood in reverent awe,
Uncovered was his hoary head;
Meekly be bowed to heaven's law,
Alone, beside his honored dead.

Although no ward escaped his tongue
His thoughts went backward to the days
When his beloved Alice sang
With him sweet songs and gladsome lays:-

Sang their light songs of early love -
Sang to their children on their knees -
Sang unto him who reigns above
In strains of sweetest melodies.

But manhood's years swept on apace,
His children left him one by one,
Until at last the saintly face
Of darling Alice, too, - was gone.

And now he stood beside her grave,
The grave that held her honored dust,
To reverence her, so true and brave,
Who faithful proved to every trust.

At length he murmured soft and low,
In accents like as in a dream:
"Rest thou, my Alice, here below
Till Christ shall send His sunlight gleam."
July 19, 1896 J. H. Jameson.

No. 1423 From "The Jameson's in America"

Mrs. Sarah Jameson Craig sends the following reminiscences of her child hood's home which she entitles: MEMORY GLIMPSES

My Old Home! How well I remember that sunny little spot in the wilds! The "clearing" of a few acres, carpeted with green, in which stood the little log cabin, with its crevices filled with moss, its roof of spruce bark instead of shingles, its one door and two single-sash windows. Within was a single room, a stone fireplace, with its hearth of broad, flat stones, which half filled one end, where in cold weather glowed the old-fashioned fire, with its great "back-log" and its andirons piled with smaller logs and sticks, filling the humble room with glowing comfort. In one back corner stood mother's bed, with the children's trundle-bed rolled under it in the daytime, and a table, cupboard, a few chairs, and two chests, all home-made and painted, our father's handiwork, completed the list of furniture, with the addition of a "three-legged stool," cut from the side of a spruce tree, its legs being three limbs sawed off to the proper length, the bark peeled off, the top smoothed, and painted red. This was my brother George's seat, and no little prince was ever prouder of his satin-cushioned chair that was he of this rustic contrivance. The older ones felt highly favored when permitted to sit on it a few minutes.

Such was my childhood's home in the backwoods of Charlotte county, N.B. , to which my parents removed when I was eighteen months old, and a happy home it was! Here were born my sister and five of my brothers, and here we all grew up, though not in the log cabin, which was soon replaced by a framed house, made of the abundant spruce and pine timber, the boards sawed with a whip-saw, there being no sawmills.

Each of the five settlers had one hundred acres of "Crown land," and made a little farm by felling the forest trees, burning them on the ground, then planting and sowing among the black stumps and logs. These unplowed "burnt lands," tilled only with hoe or harrow, often gave better crops than the same lands yielded afterward with better cultivation.

The piling and burning of "the choppings" are among my earliest and Most fascinating recollections. How we children delighted to watch whole acres of flame sweeping heavenward, with a roar and crackle like thunder and hail, as it devoured the fallen timber! and the next day to get ourselves so interestingly smutty throwing brands into the smouldering fires! or later to walk beside mother with a dish of corn or beans, dropping seed while she handled the hoe. Year by year the clearings enlarged, till settlers could see from house to house, and as the forest still receded we could see our big neighbor, Whittier's Ridge, to the southwest, and right opposite our bigger neighbor, Pleasant Ridge, while on the south a line of blue hills marked the course of the Digdeguash river. Game was plenty, especially deer and partridges. Many a fine deer father brought in on his shoulders to dress for food. Bears, too, were more plenty than welcome, and often robbed the cornfields or carried off a fat sheep.

My father gave the place the pretty name of Bloomfield, but whether it was as too poetic or not, it did not take well, and the settlement became known as "Little Pleasant Ridge."

The settlers were too few to afford a school, so our parents taught us a at home reading, writing, and arithmetic, and encouraged to study and master other branches as we were able. Out little shelf of books was my special delight. Passionately fond of study and writing, I made the most of every moment available for such employment, so it happened that I never attended, or saw the inside of, a day school until I was called to teach a little school myself. We had a kitchen Sunday-school in summer, and when the pastor of the nearest church collected the fragments of an old Sunday-school library and sent them to us with a lot of similar odds and ends, what a treasure they were to us!

I used to write rhymes and poems when a girl and occasionally later, an and was thought by myself and friends a poet indeed, my highest ambition for years being to see my name set high among the poetical stars of the century; but the dream faded as life with its stern realities took its place, though I never wholly gave up the Muse.

Notes



Text:
I did find one other item relating to the children of James Duff and Mary Austin. In the Dumfries and Galloway Standard and Advertiser Newspaper of the 12th November 1856, Page 4, Column G, there is the announcement of the marriage of Isabella Duff, third daughter of James Duff, Coach-Driver, Royal Mail, Stranraer. She married James Johnston, a Slater, on the 29th October 1856, at Mount Pleasant, Dumfries, by the Rev J M Austin of St Mary’s. A Photocopy is enclosed. This indicates that James Duff was the Royal Mail Coach Driver for the Stranraer Mail Coach. [I checked out Rev John Mein Austin in case he was a relation of Mary Austin, James Duff’s wife, but it does not appear so as he was born in Edinburgh in 1819.]

According to the best available sources, Union Hill School and Church had its beginning in 1883, one of only three Churches in the County to be organized by the Cumberland Presbyterians. The building was shared by various faiths, however, including the Christian; Freewill and Missionary Baptists; and Methodist groups. Mrs Elvira (Mitchell) Moore taught the first school there in 1883.

THE DUFF FAMILY
I found Ann Duff in Dumfries:
Parish of Dumfries, enumeration District No 9, Household No 154, Place: Townhead. James Duff, head of household, married, aged 45, A Mail Coachman, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Mary Duff, wife, married, aged 45, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire. John Duff, son, unmarried, aged 20, A Labourer, Gatehouse, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Duff, son, unmarried, aged 17, A Draper, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Ann Duff, daughter, aged 14, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Samuel Duff, son, aged 11, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. George Duff, son, aged 9, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Marion Duff, daughter, aged 6, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Houston, brother in law, married, aged 37, A General Labourer, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire.
I also found the family in the 1841 Census, Castle Douglas, Kelton Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire. Enumeration District No 1, Page 1, Place: St Andrew’s Street. James Duff, aged 30, Male Servant, born Scotland, this county. Mary Duff, aged 30, Female Servant, born Scotland, not this county. Mary Duff, aged 14, born Scotland, not this county. Janet Duff, aged 12, A Bonnet Maker Apprentice, born Scotland, this county. John Duff, aged 10, born Scotland, this county. James Duff, aged 7, born Scotland, this county. Anne Duff, aged 4, born Scotland, this county. Samuel Duff, aged 2, born Scotland, this county.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
I searched for Duff family baptism in the Old Parish Registers. I could only find the ones below:
Girthon Old Parish Register: “Janet Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 2nd November 1828.” “John Duff, son of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 25th July 1830.” “Isabella Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 22nd April 1832.” Kelton Old Parish Register: “Samuel Cowan Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 21st July 1839.” “George Gordon Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 5th September 1841.”
No other children’s baptisms were found, so in all James Duff and Mary Austin had the following children: Mary born circa 1827, Janet born in November 1828, John born in July 1830, Isabella born in April 1832, James born circa 1834, Anne born circa 1837, Samuel Cowan born in 1839, George Gordon born in 1841 and Marion born circa 1845.
James Duff was a Mail Coachman or Chaise Driver, and as the Mail Coaches would have also carried passengers in those days they are different descriptions of the same trade.
I did find one other item relating to the children of James Duff and Mary Austin. In the Dumfries and Galloway Standard and Advertiser Newspaper of the 12th November 1856, Page 4, Column G, there is the announcement of the marriage of Isabella Duff, third daughter of James Duff, Coach-Driver, Royal Mail, Stranraer. She married James Johnston, a Slater, on the 29th October 1856, at Mount Pleasant, Dumfries, by the Rev J M Austin of St Mary’s. A Photocopy is enclosed. This indicates that James Duff was the Royal Mail Coach Driver for the Stranraer Mail Coach. [I checked out Rev John Mein Austin in case he was a relation of Mary Austin, James Duff’s wife, but it does not appear so as he was born in Edinburgh in 1819.]
Mary Austin was baptized in Morton by Thornhill Parish:
Morton By Thornhill Old Parish Registers: “Mary Austin, daughter of James Austin and Janet Kerr, was baptized 31st March 1805.”
She had siblings baptized in Closeburn Parish, which is nearby.
Closeburn Old Parish Registers – Baptisms: “3rd January 1808 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Barnmuir, a daughter.” “10th January 1810 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Markeure, a son - John.” “27th June 1811 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Margeryhill, a daughter - Janet.” “5th October 1817 - James Austan and Jannet Keir, in Margeryhill, a son - Thomas.”
No marriage was found for James Austin and Janet Kerr/Carr/Keir, their baptisms were not found either. I checked the Closeburn Monument Inscriptions but no family gravestones were found.
James Duff, the Mail Coachman, was baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Register: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 12th January 1806.” He also had a brother: “John Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 27th June 1807.”
I also found the family buried in Castle Douglas, [Kelton]. Plot No 123: [a Winged Soul] “Erected by John Wilson, In Memory of James Wilson, who died May 22nd 1798, aged 17 years. Also of Elizabeth Hop, spouse of the said John Wilson, who died February 2nd 1800, aged 56 years. Also of Mary Hannay, his 2nd spouse, who died the 15th of December 1825, aged 76 years.” On the Reverse: “Here Lies Mary Anderson, who died January 1800, aged 80 years. Also his Grandson, John Duff, who died 29th July 1827, aged 20 years. Also his daughter, Mary Wilson, widow of James Duff, who died at Castle Douglas, 30th September 1852, aged 79 years.”
Mary Wilson was the daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope [not Hop as on the Monument Inscription]. She was baptized in Crossmichael Parish:
Crossmichael Old Parish Registers: “Mary Wilson, daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in Culgruff, was baptized 21st October 1773.”
Mary had an older brother and sister baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Registers: “James Wilson, son of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, was baptized 4th June 1780.” “Anne Wilson, daughter John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in the town of Carlingwalk, was baptized 7th March 1783.” Carlingwalk was the old name for Castle Douglas.
I was unable to find any further information on the Wilson and Hope families.
James Duff, married to Mary Wilson, was baptized in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright Old Parish Registers: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, spouses at Stockerton, was baptized 4th June 1763.”
He had other brothers and sisters also baptized in Kirkcudbright: “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockertown, was baptized 12th November 1761.” “John Duff, lawful son of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockerton, was baptized 18th March 1765.” “Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Little Stockerton, was baptized 13th February 1767, born 8th February 1767.” “Robert Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, was baptized 23rd January 1769.” “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, at Stockerton, was baptized 8th September 1771.”
James Duff and Janet Turner were married on the 27th November 1760 in Kirkcudbright Parish. The entry from the Proclamation Register is as follows: “Kirkcudbright – 14th November 1760 – In Presence of Baillie Reid, James Duff at Black Stockerton and Janet Turner at Little Stockerton gave in their names for proclamation in order to marriage. Samuel Gordon in Stockerton Cautr [Cautioner] for the man and James Turner for his daughter. Married 27th November 1760.”
No other Old Parish Register entries could be found for this family. However I found that they were buried in Kirkcudbright Churchyard:
Plot No 758: “Here lies the body of Janet McClure, spouse to James Turner in Little Stockerton, who departed this life March 1760 aged 58 years. Also the corps of John, James and Agnes children procreate between them, also here lies the said James Turner, who died 2nd March 1779, aged 82. Their daughter Janet Turner, spouse to James Duff in Little Stockertoun, she died 22nd May 1782, aged 52 years.” East Side: [A Winged Soul] “ Also here lyes the body of Elizabeth Turner, spouse to John Turner in East Bomby, who died 22nd September 1812, aged 72 years. Also the said John Turner, who died 24th November 1816, aged 85 years.”
So Janet Turner was the daughter of James Turner and Janet McClure.

There were two other Gravestones in Kirkcudbright Graveyard connected to the Duff Family:
Plot 759: [Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner] “ Sacred to the Memory of John Martin, Clock maker, Kirkcudbright, who departed this life October 1801, aged 91 years. Also Margaret McClure, his spouse, who died May 1781. Also their children John, Roger, and Isabella who died in infancy. And also their daughter Elizabeth, who departed this life August 3rd 1828, aged 81 years.” Reverse Side: “In Memory of John Bryce, who died at Clauchan of Tongland, 10th January 1816, aged 46 years. Marion, his daughter, died in infancy 1804. Marion Duff his relict, died at Hightae, Parish of Kelton, 2nd September 1844, aged 73 years. Also their son James, who died at Bengal, East Indies, 16th March 1849, aged 42 years.”
Plot 749: [Robert Duff, son James Duff and Janet Turner] “Erected in Memory of Robert Duff, late farmer in Little Sypland, who died 22nd March 1822, aged 51 years. Margaret Anderson, his spouse, who died at the same place, 13th April 1849, aged 77 years. Anna Duff, their daughter, who died 1st August 1844, aged 44 years. William Duff, their son, who died 16th June 1853, aged 46 years. Also Jessie Nairn, wife of Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 29th March 1873, aged 53 years. Also Jane Duff, spouse of the late James Hornell, Merchant, Kirkcudbright, who died at Little Sypland, 19th August 1875, aged 65 years. Also James Duff, who died at same place, 20th December 1876, aged 74 years. Also Margaret Duff, who died at same place, 8th January 1878, aged 73 years. Also Janet Duff, who died at High Barcaple, 12th May 1887, aged 92 years. Also the said Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 9th June 1896, aged 85 years.”

Vicksburg Evening Post ANOTHER VETERAN GONE
The death of MR. D. HOLDEN, occurring yesterday about noon at his home in the city, was a painful shock to his many friends of a lifetime association and hard for them to realize, since he was actively engaged in his business up to the very hour, almost, of his death. He had been a great sufferer from neuralic affections of the head and had been complaining of a great pain in that region in the early part of the day. At 10:30 o'clock he drove home, put up his horse and entering his house lay down on a bed. Nothing of a serious nature was feared, however, and it was not until some minutes later that attention was called to his condition by his becoming sick at the stomach. Physicians were summoned in haste, but prompt as was their response it was impossible to revive him from the stupor into which he had fallen by that time and shortly before noon life was extinct. Death resulted from apoplexy it's immediate cause being cerebral hemorrhage. He was in his Fifty-eighth year. MR. HOLDEN is survived by his wife, three daughters, Mrs. Wm. Noble, of Leland; Misses Alice and Birdie Holden, and two sons. He leaves a sister in Covington, KY, and a brother in Dayton, Ohio. He was emphatically a good citizen, having borne well his part in all the relations of life, and is deeply lamented as he will be missed by all who knew him. At the beginning of the war he entered the ranks of the 10th Mississippi Regiment, in which he approved himself a good soldier, though a very youthful one. At the Battle of Shiloh he received a wound in the chest which for some time was considered likely to prove fatal. Mr. Holden was a member of Ben Humphreys camp, Woodmen of the World; of the I.O.O.F and the Knights and Ladies of Honor. He was also affiliated with Vicksburg Camp No. 32, U.C.V. The funeral will take place from the residence today at 3 P.M. The following are the pallbearers: J. F. Higgason, T.H. Brierly, Geo. T.E. Johnson, F.C. Kent, Max Landauer, C.J. Miller, J.W. Hamm, L.W. Swafford.
Note: Mrs. Wm. Noble was really Mrs. Wm. Nehls.
The Vicksburg Evening Post December 29, 1896
Sudden Death
MR. DAVID HOLDEN, EXPIRES VERY SUDDENLY FROM APOPLEXY.
The sad and sudden death of this well known and reliable gentleman which occurred about 12 o'clock was a shock to his many friend in this city. Mr. Holden was in his usual good spirits and health this morning, and went to his paint shop on South Street as has been his regular custom for many years. He gave his orders and sent his man in work. Apparently being in the best of health. About 10 o'clock he complained of his head paining him and feeling badly and he then went home. Upon arriving at his house he told his wife of his feeling unwell, and he then laid down on the bed saying he wanted a little rest. Nothing serious was apprehended till a short while afterwards when he began to vomit, then turned over and breathed very hard.This aroused the family, and physicians were hurriedly sent for, Drs. Purdell and J.A. Birchett, responded very promptly. Mr. Holden was unconscious when they arrived, and the doctors immediately pronounced him an attack of apoplexy. He never rallied and expired about 12 o'clock. It is said this is the third attack Mr. Holden has had, and it sustains the belief that the third attack always proves fatal. About April, two years ago, and in the summer of 1895 it is said Mr. Holden had similar attacks, but recovered with out any serious effects. Mr. Holden was well known in this city and was an industrious and hardworking man. He has been engaged in the painting business for many years and was a skillful artist. At the time of his death Mr. Holden was 57 years and six months old. During the war, Mr. Holden was a gallant confederate soldier, and was a member of Camp 32 Confederate Veteran Mr. Holden was also a member in good standing in the Odd Fellows, Woodmen of the World, and Knights and Ladies of Honor. He leaves a wife, three daughters, Misses Alice and Birdie Holden, and Mrs. Wm. Noble, of Leland; and two sons, Archie and David, to mourn the loss of an affectionate, husband and good father. Mr. Holden also leaves one brother residing in Dayton, Ohio and a sister in Covington, KY. The funeral will take place from the family residence, No. 203 China Street.

James M. Jamison, born June 29, 1840; died September 7, 1868.
Evangeline Jamison (nee White), wife of John M. Jamison, born October 4,


John Jamison is possibly the son of James Jamison born about 1785 in Virginia. John was called Captain. 
Jamison, John Captain (I2084)
 
77 Co-Founded the town of Cuba, Missouri. In 1860 the first houses were built on the town site of Cuba by George Monroe Jamison , Wesley Smith Tyce Smith and Isaac B. Tyler. Wesley Smith and George Monroe Jamison, generally known as Monroe Jamison, each had a general store. Jamison moved his post office, Amanda, to the new town already for three years called Cuba. No information pertaining to the arrival of George M. Jamison or Wesley Smith is available, but since they were co-founders of Cuba in 1857, they must have arrived some years before that date.

Since the name seems to have given by George M. Jamison there is a possibility that the "Forty-Niner's" might have been Jamison and Smith.

Monroe Street in Cuba was named in honor of George Monroe Jamison.

George Monroe Jamison was appointed Post Master on January 2, 1857. In 1857 not a single house stood on the town site, but George Monroe Jamison kept a post office one half mile west, and named it Amanda, in honor of his wife. The small log post office was located on land which is now a part of the Ridge Top Farms, and is marked by the ruins of an old cistern, a portion of the foundation, and a small grove of trees.

From: Johnson, Erica Date: 07/18/05 11:31:02 To: 'NAVYBEAR' Subject: RE: CLOSING THOUGHTS ON THE HASTINGS FAMILY
Dear Mr Hastings,
Thank-you for your recent e-mail and the wonderful family tree that you attached, you have done so well to get such a long lineage back to the 15th Century.
Why did the family change their name form Hairstones to Hastings?, Well I notice that this change seems to take place around the late 1700's, when written records are becoming far more common. It is likely that the name was changed by the local Parish Session Clerk, possibly a new man taking over the job around that time decided that the name given to him by the family when the children were baptized sounded like Hastings, in the heavy local accent, and once changed it simply became the accepted spelling. At that time very few people could read or write and the family may not have realized that the Clerk had spelt the name differently from previous entries in the record.
If you want to check out the following website:

It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.

From: Johnson, Erica Date: 07/18/05 11:31:02 To: 'NAVYBEAR' Subject: RE: CLOSING THOUGHTS ON THE HASTINGS FAMILY
Dear Mr Hastings, Thank-you for your recent e-mail and the wonderful family tree that you attached, you have done so well to get such a long lineage back to the 15th Century.
Why did the family change their name form Hairstones to Hastings?, Well I notice that this change seems to take place around the late 1700's, when written records are becoming far more common. It is likely that the name was changed by the local Parish Session Clerk, possibly a new man taking over the job around that time decided that the name given to him by the family when the children were baptized sounded like Hastings, in the heavy local accent, and once changed it simply became the accepted spelling. At that time very few people could read or write and the family may not have realized that the Clerk had spelt the name differently from previous entries in the record.
If you want to check out the following website:
www.bennygillies.co.uk
It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.
Regards,

Any e mail message sent or received by the Council may require to be disclosed by the Council under the provisions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. ============================================================================ Note: Erica Johnson, Genealogist at the Dumfries/Galloway Library: July, 2005 I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers: “1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
================================================================================= DUMFRIES Scotland Library, Ms Erica Johnson conducted family genealogy research on June 24, 2005. I searched for the marriage certificate of Robert Hastings and Ann/Annie. Unfortunately I could not find a Marriage Certificate. I then searched for and obtained the Birth Certificate of Thomas Hastings, born in 1866 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Thomas Hastings. Date of Birth: 1866 – February Sixth, 5hours AM. Place of Birth: 44 Inverkip Street, Greenock. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber. Name of Mother: Ann Hastings, [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 September 28th in Paisley. Informant: Robert Hastings, Father, present. Registered: 1866, February 24th at Greenock by H Macmillian, Assistant Registrar.
I searched again for the parent’s marriage certificate but still none was found. I searched for the Birth Certificate of Mary A Hastings born in 1861 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Mary Austin Hastings. Date of Birth: 1861, April Second, 8 hours 30 minutes AM. Place of Birth: 15 Nith Place, Dumfries. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber [Journeyman]. Name of Mother: Annie Hastings [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 October 28th Dumfries. Informant: Robert Hastings, father. Registered: 1861, April 22nd at Dumfries by Robert Martin, Registrar.
A different marriage date and place was given on this certificate, so I think it can be assumed that the parents were not married. I searched the 1851 Census for any trace of them, hoping that they were living with their parents at the time.
THE DUFF FAMILY I found Ann Duff in Dumfries: Parish of Dumfries, enumeration District No 9, Household No 154, Place: Townhead. James Duff, head of household, married, aged 45, A Mail Coachman, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Mary Duff, wife, married, aged 45, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire. John Duff, son, unmarried, aged 20, A Labourer, Gatehouse, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Duff, son, unmarried, aged 17, A Draper, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Ann Duff, daughter, aged 14, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Samuel Duff, son, aged 11, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. George Duff, son, aged 9, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Marion Duff, daughter, aged 6, A Scholar, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. James Houston, brother in law, married, aged 37, A General Labourer, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire.
I also found the family in the 1841 Census, Castle Douglas, Kelton Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire. Enumeration District No 1, Page 1, Place: St Andrew’s Street. James Duff, aged 30, Male Servant, born Scotland, this county. Mary Duff, aged 30, Female Servant, born Scotland, not this county. Mary Duff, aged 14, born Scotland, not this county. Janet Duff, aged 12, A Bonnet Maker Apprentice, born Scotland, this county. John Duff, aged 10, born Scotland, this county. James Duff, aged 7, born Scotland, this county. Anne Duff, aged 4, born Scotland, this county. Samuel Duff, aged 2, born Scotland, this county.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
I searched for Duff family baptism in the Old Parish Registers. I could only find the ones below:
Girthon Old Parish Register: “Janet Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 2nd November 1828.” “John Duff, son of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 25th July 1830.” “Isabella Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 22nd April 1832.” Kelton Old Parish Register: “Samuel Cowan Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 21st July 1839.” “George Gordon Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 5th September 1841.”
No other children’s baptisms were found, so in all James Duff and Mary Austin had the following children: Mary born circa 1827, Janet born in November 1828, John born in July 1830, Isabella born in April 1832, James born circa 1834, Anne born circa 1837, Samuel Cowan born in 1839, George Gordon born in 1841 and Marion born circa 1845.
James Duff was a Mail Coachman or Chaise Driver, and as the Mail Coaches would have also carried passengers in those days they are different descriptions of the same trade.
I did find one other item relating to the children of James Duff and Mary Austin. In the Dumfries and Galloway Standard and Advertiser Newspaper of the 12th November 1856, Page 4, Column G, there is the announcement of the marriage of Isabella Duff, third daughter of James Duff, Coach-Driver, Royal Mail, Stranraer. She married James Johnston, a Slater, on the 29th October 1856, at Mount Pleasant, Dumfries, by the Rev J M Austin of St Mary’s. A Photocopy is enclosed. This indicates that James Duff was the Royal Mail Coach Driver for the Stranraer Mail Coach. [I checked out Rev John Mein Austin in case he was a relation of Mary Austin, James Duff’s wife, but it does not appear so as he was born in Edinburgh in 1819.]
Mary Austin was baptized in Morton by Thornhill Parish:
Morton By Thornhill Old Parish Registers: “Mary Austin, daughter of James Austin and Janet Kerr, was baptized 31st March 1805.”
She had siblings baptized in Closeburn Parish, which is nearby.
Closeburn Old Parish Registers – Baptisms: “3rd January 1808 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Barnmuir, a daughter.” “10th January 1810 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Markeure, a son - John.” “27th June 1811 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Margeryhill, a daughter - Janet.” “5th October 1817 - James Austan and Jannet Keir, in Margeryhill, a son - Thomas.”
No marriage was found for James Austin and Janet Kerr/Carr/Keir, their baptisms were not found either. I checked the Closeburn Monument Inscriptions but no family gravestones were found.
James Duff, the Mail Coachman, was baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Register: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 12th January 1806.” He also had a brother: “John Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 27th June 1807.”
I also found the family buried in Castle Douglas, [Kelton]. Plot No 123: [a Winged Soul] “Erected by John Wilson, In Memory of James Wilson, who died May 22nd 1798, aged 17 years. Also of Elizabeth Hop, spouse of the said John Wilson, who died February 2nd 1800, aged 56 years. Also of Mary Hannay, his 2nd spouse, who died the 15th of December 1825, aged 76 years.” On the Reverse: “Here Lies Mary Anderson, who died January 1800, aged 80 years. Also his Grandson, John Duff, who died 29th July 1827, aged 20 years. Also his daughter, Mary Wilson, widow of James Duff, who died at Castle Douglas, 30th September 1852, aged 79 years.”
Mary Wilson was the daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope [not Hop as on the Monument Inscription]. She was baptized in Crossmichael Parish:
Crossmichael Old Parish Registers: “Mary Wilson, daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in Culgruff, was baptized 21st October 1773.”
Mary had an older brother and sister baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Registers: “James Wilson, son of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, was baptized 4th June 1780.” “Anne Wilson, daughter John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in the town of Carlingwalk, was baptized 7th March 1783.” Carlingwalk was the old name for Castle Douglas.
I was unable to find any further information on the Wilson and Hope families.
James Duff, married to Mary Wilson, was baptized in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright Old Parish Registers: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, spouses at Stockerton, was baptized 4th June 1763.”
He had other brothers and sisters also baptized in Kirkcudbright: “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockertown, was baptized 12th November 1761.” “John Duff, lawful son of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockerton, was baptized 18th March 1765.” “Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Little Stockerton, was baptized 13th February 1767, born 8th February 1767.” “Robert Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, was baptized 23rd January 1769.” “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, at Stockerton, was baptized 8th September 1771.”
James Duff and Janet Turner were married on the 27th November 1760 in Kirkcudbright Parish. The entry from the Proclamation Register is as follows: “Kirkcudbright – 14th November 1760 – In Presence of Baillie Reid, James Duff at Black Stockerton and Janet Turner at Little Stockerton gave in their names for proclamation in order to marriage. Samuel Gordon in Stockerton Cautr [Cautioner] for the man and James Turner for his daughter. Married 27th November 1760.”
No other Old Parish Register entries could be found for this family. However I found that they were buried in Kirkcudbright Churchyard:
Plot No 758: “Here lies the body of Janet McClure, spouse to James Turner in Little Stockerton, who departed this life March 1760 aged 58 years. Also the corps of John, James and Agnes children procreate between them, also here lies the said James Turner, who died 2nd March 1779, aged 82. Their daughter Janet Turner, spouse to James Duff in Little Stockertoun, she died 22nd May 1782, aged 52 years.” East Side: [A Winged Soul] “ Also here lyes the body of Elizabeth Turner, spouse to John Turner in East Bomby, who died 22nd September 1812, aged 72 years. Also the said John Turner, who died 24th November 1816, aged 85 years.”
So Janet Turner was the daughter of James Turner and Janet McClure.

There were two other Gravestones in Kirkcudbright Graveyard connected to the Duff Family:
Plot 759: [Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner] “ Sacred to the Memory of John Martin, Clock maker, Kirkcudbright, who departed this life October 1801, aged 91 years. Also Margaret McClure, his spouse, who died May 1781. Also their children John, Roger, and Isabella who died in infancy. And also their daughter Elizabeth, who departed this life August 3rd 1828, aged 81 years.” Reverse Side: “In Memory of John Bryce, who died at Clauchan of Tongland, 10th January 1816, aged 46 years. Marion, his daughter, died in infancy 1804. Marion Duff his relict, died at Hightae, Parish of Kelton, 2nd September 1844, aged 73 years. Also their son James, who died at Bengal, East Indies, 16th March 1849, aged 42 years.”
Plot 749: [Robert Duff, son James Duff and Janet Turner] “Erected in Memory of Robert Duff, late farmer in Little Sypland, who died 22nd March 1822, aged 51 years. Margaret Anderson, his spouse, who died at the same place, 13th April 1849, aged 77 years. Anna Duff, their daughter, who died 1st August 1844, aged 44 years. William Duff, their son, who died 16th June 1853, aged 46 years. Also Jessie Nairn, wife of Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 29th March 1873, aged 53 years. Also Jane Duff, spouse of the late James Hornell, Merchant, Kirkcudbright, who died at Little Sypland, 19th August 1875, aged 65 years. Also James Duff, who died at same place, 20th December 1876, aged 74 years. Also Margaret Duff, who died at same place, 8th January 1878, aged 73 years. Also Janet Duff, who died at High Barcaple, 12th May 1887, aged 92 years. Also the said Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 9th June 1896, aged 85 years.”
THE HASTINGS FAMILY
From the naming pattern of the children of Robert Hastings and Ann Duff, I would expect Robert Hastings parents to be a Thomas and a Margaret. I found the right family in the 1851 Census:
1851 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Household No 17, Place: Mosside.
Thomas Hastings, head of household, married, aged 56, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Margaret Hastings, wife, married, aged 54, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. James Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 28, A Labourer, born Crawford, Lanark. John Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 21, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Helen Hastings, daughter, unmarried, aged 17, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robert Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 15, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robina Hastings, daughter, aged 13, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire.
1841 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Page 3 & 4, Place: Mosside [number 3].
Thomas Hastings, aged 45, A Gardener, born Scotland, this county. Margaret Hastings, aged 40, born Scotland, this county. Janet Hastings, aged 15, born Scotland, this county. John Hastings, aged 12, born Scotland, this county. Ellen Hastings, aged 8, born Scotland, this county. Robert Hastings, aged 6, born Scotland, this county. Rabina Hastings, aged 4, born Scotland, this county.
James Hastings, the older son of the family was found in Durisdeer Parish, Enumeration District No 4, Page 2, Place: Kirkbride Outhouse.
James Hastings aged 15, An Agricultural Labourer, born Scotland, this county.
He was working for John McCall, aged 40, and his wife Agnes McCall, aged 30, who were farming at Kirkbride, with 5 female Agricultural Labourers living with them and their 1 year old daughter in the farmhouse and 2 male Agricultural Labourers, James Hastings and Robert Douglas [aged 10], living in the Outhouse of Kirkbride.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
The above Census returns show that Robert was the 5th child of the family, James Hastings born circa 1823, in Crawford, Lanark, Janet Hastings born circa 1826, John Hastings baptized 1829 in Durisdeer, Helen Hastings baptized in 1833 in Durisdeer, Robert Hastings baptized 1835 in Durisdeer and Robina Hastings born circa 1838 in Durisdeer.
I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers:
“1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
I did find a family Gravestone in Durisdeer Cemetery:

I also found the family in the 1841 Census, Castle Douglas, Kelton Parish, Kirkcudbrightshire. Enumeration District No 1, Page 1, Place: St Andrew’s Street.

THE DUFF FAMILY I found Ann Duff in Dumfries: Parish of Dumfries, enumeration District No 9, Household No 154, Place: Townhead. James Duff, head of household, married, aged 45, A Mail Coachman, born Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Mary Duff, wife, married, aged 45, born Closeburn, Dumfriesshire.

============================== DUMFRIES Scotland Library, Ms Erica Johnson conducted family genealogy research on June 24, 2005. I searched for the marriage certificate of Robert Hastings and Ann/Annie. Unfortunately I could not find a Marriage Certificate. I then searched for and obtained the Birth Certificate of Thomas Hastings, born in 1866 [enclosed]:

It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.

Any e mail message sent or received by the Council may require to be disclosed by the Council under the provisions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. ============================================================================ Note: Erica Johnson, Genealogist at the Dumfries/Galloway Library: July, 2005 I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers: “1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.

EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Thomas Hastings. Date of Birth: 1866 – February Sixth, 5hours AM. Place of Birth: 44 Inverkip Street, Greenock. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber. Name of Mother: Ann Hastings, [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 September 28th in Paisley. Informant: Robert Hastings, Father, present. Registered: 1866, February 24th at Greenock by H Macmillian, Assistant Registrar.
I searched again for the parent’s marriage certificate but still none was found. I searched for the Birth Certificate of Mary A Hastings born in 1861 [enclosed]:
EXTRACT FROM BIRTH CERTIFICATE: Name of Child: Mary Austin Hastings. Date of Birth: 1861, April Second, 8 hours 30 minutes AM. Place of Birth: 15 Nith Place, Dumfries. Name of Father: Robert Hastings, Plumber [Journeyman]. Name of Mother: Annie Hastings [maiden surname: Duff] Details of Parents Marriage: 1860 October 28th Dumfries. Informant: Robert Hastings, father. Registered: 1861, April 22nd at Dumfries by Robert Martin, Registrar.
A different marriage date and place was given on this certificate, so I think it can be assumed that the parents were not married. I searched the 1851 Census for any trace of them, hoping that they were living with their parents at the time.


Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
I searched for Duff family baptism in the Old Parish Registers. I could only find the ones below:
Girthon Old Parish Register: “Janet Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 2nd November 1828.” “John Duff, son of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 25th July 1830.” “Isabella Duff, daughter of James Duff, Chaise Driver, and Mary Austin in Gatehouse, was baptized 22nd April 1832.” Kelton Old Parish Register: “Samuel Cowan Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 21st July 1839.” “George Gordon Duff, son of James Duff, Driver, and Mary Austin in Castle Douglas, was baptized 5th September 1841.”
No other children’s baptisms were found, so in all James Duff and Mary Austin had the following children: Mary born circa 1827, Janet born in November 1828, John born in July 1830, Isabella born in April 1832, James born circa 1834, Anne born circa 1837, Samuel Cowan born in 1839, George Gordon born in 1841 and Marion born circa 1845.
James Duff was a Mail Coachman or Chaise Driver, and as the Mail Coaches would have also carried passengers in those days they are different descriptions of the same trade.
I did find one other item relating to the children of James Duff and Mary Austin. In the Dumfries and Galloway Standard and Advertiser Newspaper of the 12th November 1856, Page 4, Column G, there is the announcement of the marriage of Isabella Duff, third daughter of James Duff, Coach-Driver, Royal Mail, Stranraer. She married James Johnston, a Slater, on the 29th October 1856, at Mount Pleasant, Dumfries, by the Rev J M Austin of St Mary’s. A Photocopy is enclosed. This indicates that James Duff was the Royal Mail Coach Driver for the Stranraer Mail Coach. [I checked out Rev John Mein Austin in case he was a relation of Mary Austin, James Duff’s wife, but it does not appear so as he was born in Edinburgh in 1819.]
Mary Austin was baptized in Morton by Thornhill Parish:
Morton By Thornhill Old Parish Registers: “Mary Austin, daughter of James Austin and Janet Kerr, was baptized 31st March 1805.”
She had siblings baptized in Closeburn Parish, which is nearby.
Closeburn Old Parish Registers – Baptisms: “3rd January 1808 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Barnmuir, a daughter.” “10th January 1810 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Markeure, a son - John.” “27th June 1811 - James Austine and Janet Carr, in Margeryhill, a daughter - Janet.” “5th October 1817 - James Austan and Jannet Keir, in Margeryhill, a son - Thomas.”
No marriage was found for James Austin and Janet Kerr/Carr/Keir, their baptisms were not found either. I checked the Closeburn Monument Inscriptions but no family gravestones were found.
James Duff, the Mail Coachman, was baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Register: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 12th January 1806.” He also had a brother: “John Duff, son of James Duff and Mary Wilson, in Castle Douglas, was baptized 27th June 1807.”
I also found the family buried in Castle Douglas, [Kelton]. Plot No 123: [a Winged Soul] “Erected by John Wilson, In Memory of James Wilson, who died May 22nd 1798, aged 17 years. Also of Elizabeth Hop, spouse of the said John Wilson, who died February 2nd 1800, aged 56 years. Also of Mary Hannay, his 2nd spouse, who died the 15th of December 1825, aged 76 years.” On the Reverse: “Here Lies Mary Anderson, who died January 1800, aged 80 years. Also his Grandson, John Duff, who died 29th July 1827, aged 20 years. Also his daughter, Mary Wilson, widow of James Duff, who died at Castle Douglas, 30th September 1852, aged 79 years.”
Mary Wilson was the daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope [not Hop as on the Monument Inscription]. She was baptized in Crossmichael Parish:
Crossmichael Old Parish Registers: “Mary Wilson, daughter of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in Culgruff, was baptized 21st October 1773.”
Mary had an older brother and sister baptized in Kelton Parish:
Kelton Old Parish Registers: “James Wilson, son of John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, was baptized 4th June 1780.” “Anne Wilson, daughter John Wilson and Elizabeth Hope, in the town of Carlingwalk, was baptized 7th March 1783.” Carlingwalk was the old name for Castle Douglas.
I was unable to find any further information on the Wilson and Hope families.
James Duff, married to Mary Wilson, was baptized in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright Old Parish Registers: “James Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, spouses at Stockerton, was baptized 4th June 1763.”
He had other brothers and sisters also baptized in Kirkcudbright: “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockertown, was baptized 12th November 1761.” “John Duff, lawful son of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Stockerton, was baptized 18th March 1765.” “Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, in Little Stockerton, was baptized 13th February 1767, born 8th February 1767.” “Robert Duff, son of James Duff and Janet Turner, was baptized 23rd January 1769.” “Janet Duff, lawful daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner, at Stockerton, was baptized 8th September 1771.”
James Duff and Janet Turner were married on the 27th November 1760 in Kirkcudbright Parish. The entry from the Proclamation Register is as follows: “Kirkcudbright – 14th November 1760 – In Presence of Baillie Reid, James Duff at Black Stockerton and Janet Turner at Little Stockerton gave in their names for proclamation in order to marriage. Samuel Gordon in Stockerton Cautr [Cautioner] for the man and James Turner for his daughter. Married 27th November 1760.”
No other Old Parish Register entries could be found for this family. However I found that they were buried in Kirkcudbright Churchyard:
Plot No 758: “Here lies the body of Janet McClure, spouse to James Turner in Little Stockerton, who departed this life March 1760 aged 58 years. Also the corps of John, James and Agnes children procreate between them, also here lies the said James Turner, who died 2nd March 1779, aged 82. Their daughter Janet Turner, spouse to James Duff in Little Stockertoun, she died 22nd May 1782, aged 52 years.” East Side: [A Winged Soul] “ Also here lyes the body of Elizabeth Turner, spouse to John Turner in East Bomby, who died 22nd September 1812, aged 72 years. Also the said John Turner, who died 24th November 1816, aged 85 years.”
So Janet Turner was the daughter of James Turner and Janet McClure.

There were two other Gravestones in Kirkcudbright Graveyard connected to the Duff Family:
Plot 759: [Marion Duff, daughter of James Duff and Janet Turner] “ Sacred to the Memory of John Martin, Clock maker, Kirkcudbright, who departed this life October 1801, aged 91 years. Also Margaret McClure, his spouse, who died May 1781. Also their children John, Roger, and Isabella who died in infancy. And also their daughter Elizabeth, who departed this life August 3rd 1828, aged 81 years.” Reverse Side: “In Memory of John Bryce, who died at Clauchan of Tongland, 10th January 1816, aged 46 years. Marion, his daughter, died in infancy 1804. Marion Duff his relict, died at Hightae, Parish of Kelton, 2nd September 1844, aged 73 years. Also their son James, who died at Bengal, East Indies, 16th March 1849, aged 42 years.”
Plot 749: [Robert Duff, son James Duff and Janet Turner] “Erected in Memory of Robert Duff, late farmer in Little Sypland, who died 22nd March 1822, aged 51 years. Margaret Anderson, his spouse, who died at the same place, 13th April 1849, aged 77 years. Anna Duff, their daughter, who died 1st August 1844, aged 44 years. William Duff, their son, who died 16th June 1853, aged 46 years. Also Jessie Nairn, wife of Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 29th March 1873, aged 53 years. Also Jane Duff, spouse of the late James Hornell, Merchant, Kirkcudbright, who died at Little Sypland, 19th August 1875, aged 65 years. Also James Duff, who died at same place, 20th December 1876, aged 74 years. Also Margaret Duff, who died at same place, 8th January 1878, aged 73 years. Also Janet Duff, who died at High Barcaple, 12th May 1887, aged 92 years. Also the said Robert Duff, their son, who died at High Barcaple, 9th June 1896, aged 85 years.”
THE HASTINGS FAMILY
From the naming pattern of the children of Robert Hastings and Ann Duff, I would expect Robert Hastings parents to be a Thomas and a Margaret. I found the right family in the 1851 Census:
1851 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Household No 17, Place: Mosside.
Thomas Hastings, head of household, married, aged 56, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Margaret Hastings, wife, married, aged 54, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. James Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 28, A Labourer, born Crawford, Lanark. John Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 21, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Helen Hastings, daughter, unmarried, aged 17, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robert Hastings, son, unmarried, aged 15, A Labourer, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire. Robina Hastings, daughter, aged 13, born Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire.
1841 Census, Parish of Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Enumeration District No 2, Page 3 & 4, Place: Mosside [number 3].
Thomas Hastings, aged 45, A Gardener, born Scotland, this county. Margaret Hastings, aged 40, born Scotland, this county. Janet Hastings, aged 15, born Scotland, this county. John Hastings, aged 12, born Scotland, this county. Ellen Hastings, aged 8, born Scotland, this county. Robert Hastings, aged 6, born Scotland, this county. Rabina Hastings, aged 4, born Scotland, this county.
James Hastings, the older son of the family was found in Durisdeer Parish, Enumeration District No 4, Page 2, Place: Kirkbride Outhouse.
James Hastings aged 15, An Agricultural Labourer, born Scotland, this county.
He was working for John McCall, aged 40, and his wife Agnes McCall, aged 30, who were farming at Kirkbride, with 5 female Agricultural Labourers living with them and their 1 year old daughter in the farmhouse and 2 male Agricultural Labourers, James Hastings and Robert Douglas [aged 10], living in the Outhouse of Kirkbride.
Please note that the ages in the 1841 Census are rounded down to the nearest five years for over fifteens.
The above Census returns show that Robert was the 5th child of the family, James Hastings born circa 1823, in Crawford, Lanark, Janet Hastings born circa 1826, John Hastings baptized 1829 in Durisdeer, Helen Hastings baptized in 1833 in Durisdeer, Robert Hastings baptized 1835 in Durisdeer and Robina Hastings born circa 1838 in Durisdeer.
I found 3 family baptisms in the Durisdeer Old Parish Registers:
“1829 – February 22nd – John, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Cottonhouse.” “1833 – March 3rd – Helen, Lawful daughter of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Anoch.” “1835 – March 21st – Robert, Lawful son of Thomas Hastings and Margaret Grierson, in Enoch.”
No other baptisms were found for this family, but despite giving Durisdeer as their birthplaces in the 1851 Census, it might be worth checking with the Lanark Old Parish Registers, in case they were originally from Crawford, Lanarkshire, which is just over the border from Dumfriesshire.
I did find a family Gravestone in Durisdeer Cemetery:
Plot 211: “In affectionate remembrance of Mary Douglas, wife of James Brown, who died at Mosside, Durisdeer, on the 13th July 1872, aged 71 years.

From: Johnson, Erica Date: 07/18/05 11:31:02 To: 'NAVYBEAR' Subject: RE: CLOSING THOUGHTS ON THE HASTINGS FAMILY
Dear Mr Hastings,
Thank-you for your recent e-mail and the wonderful family tree that you attached, you have done so well to get such a long lineage back to the 15th Century.
Why did the family change their name form Hairstones to Hastings?, Well I notice that this change seems to take place around the late 1700's, when written records are becoming far more common. It is likely that the name was changed by the local Parish Session Clerk, possibly a new man taking over the job around that time decided that the name given to him by the family when the children were baptized sounded like Hastings, in the heavy local accent, and once changed it simply became the accepted spelling. At that time very few people could read or write and the family may not have realized that the Clerk had spelt the name differently from previous entries in the record.
If you want to check out the following website:
www.bennygillies.co.uk
It is that of a local antiquarian bookseller and I am sure he will be able to help you find the book you require.
Glad to have been able to help you, best wishes for your future researches.

Walter Goodwin Davis, Maine and Massachusetts Families in the Ancestry
of Walter Goodwin Davis
(Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1996) Family Tree
Maker CD #194
Three volume set: I. Allanson to French, II. Gardner to Moses, and III. Neal
to Wright.
The multi-ancestor compendia compiled and published by Walter Goodwin Davis
is one of the major achievements of twentieth-century genealogy. These volumes authoritatively cover 180 families, all of Davis's colonial forebears plus nineteen English families in the immediate ancestry of American immigrants.
The Davis opus is undoubtedly the premier work for northern New England, and
an often essential companion volume to the celebrated Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, which it considerably expands, especially for many Essex County families with ties further north. Almost anyone with considerable New England ancestry--and as many as 100 million living Americans, about 40 percent of the population, have some colonial New England forebears--will descend from one or more, often a dozen or more, of the families herein.
