Isabel Provan(d) m John Jarvie - Kilsyth STI SCT
Posted by: Thelma Hurly (ID *****7440) Date: April 06, 2008 at 13:17:42
  of 71

These are my 3rd Great Grandparents on my fathers line and am trying to find parents and d.o.b of Isabel PROVAN and any marriages for their children -

OPR MARRIAGE: 26/08/1793 PROVAND ISABEL JOHN JARVIE/FR1273 F Kilsyth /STIRLING 483/ 0050 0346
(Have not seen a copy of the original but OPR's often don't show much else than is in the Index)

With the exception of their first child I have OPR Refs: for the baptisms of all others as listed below

John JARVIE ch 4 June 1794 Kilsyth - presume died bef 1802
Janet JARVIE ch 2 May 1797 Kilsyth
Jean JARVIE ch 26 Nov 1798 Kilsyth
John JARVIE ch 11 Oct 1802 Kilsyth d 1862 m Jean DAWSON 1793
David JARVIE ch 18 Nov 1804 Kilsyth
Alexander JARVIE ch 7 Sep 1806 Kilsyth
Isobel JARVIE ch 18 July 1808 Kilsyth

Does anyone have this Isabel PROVAN(D) in their family - or can they point me in the right direction for further research on the PROVAN. I've been through all the messages on the Forum but although there are several familiar names cannot find anything that seems to relate with what I have thus far. Can only find 2 possible births on IGI for Isabel:-
Isabel PROVIN Ch: 19 June 1774 South Leith
Parents:
Father: Peter PROVIN Mother: Jean FERGUSON
with 3 other children, Charles 1776, John 1781 and Boswell(Female)1779 - all South Leith SCT

or

Thomas PROVAN m Elizabeth MURRAY with one child only that I can find thus far being.....
Isabel PROVAN ch 16 Apr 1775 Associate Session Glasgow SCT.

Both might be possibles but cannot be sure which, if either, might be correct.

I do have several of the descendant lines for the Jarvies but would really like to get back at least a few more generations on the PROVANS and JARVIES as most of my other lines go back much further.

My descent line:-
John JARVIE/Isabel PROVAN m Kilsyth SCT (7children)
John JARVIE/Jean DAWSON m Denny SCT (9 Children)
Isabella JARVIE/James SNEDDON m Bothkennar SCT (6 Children)
James SNEDDON/Isabella McKean HOLLINSWORTH m Govan SCT -> Canada 1926 (7 Children)
James SNEDDON/Esther FOSTER m Wigan Lancs UK (2 Children)
Thelma SNEDDON(m S. Africa/Thomas HURLY) -> to S.Africa 1953 (4 Children)

Does any of the above ring any bells for anyone? Would love to hear from you if it does.
