    Notes 
    • WILLIAM STURROCK & MARY PETRIE
      William was a Weaver of Guildy, born on 18th September 1798 in Guildy, t
      o ALEXANDER STURROCK & MARGARET -.
      He first married ANN LUMGAIR on 7th June 1827 - they had 7 children.
      He then married MARY PETRIE on 26th June 1870 - they had 6 children.
      He died on 22nd July 1874 at Braefoot, Carnoustie, Angus.
      In later years he lived at the keeper's house of the Panmure Testimonia
      l.
      I am informed by an ancestor, "I think the above William married Mary P
      etrie before the birth of their first son. I refer you to that son's di
      ary "The Diary of John Sturrock" edited by Christopher A. Whately of Du
      ndee University.)
      From the same ancestor, a copy letter.) - "I have done some research in
      to John Sturrock (1840), and have pleasure in forwarding it to you."
      "The Diary of John Sturrock" Page 8 - He was born at Guildy Monikie on 8 N
      ovember 1840 and baptised on 31 December 1840. His father was William S
      turrock (18 Sept 1798) a Hand Loom Weaver at Guildy, before moving to (
      the keeper's house at) Panmure Testimonial probably when his eyesight f
      ailed. Both his grandfather Alexander and his great grandfather James w
      ere linen handloom weavers at Guildy. There is a gravestone (t10) in Mo
      nikie Kirkyard 1800 erected by Alexander Sturrock, Weaver of Guildy, in h
      onour of his father, James, and his mother, Isobel Mill. Modified by Ma
      rgaret, maiden surname Sturrock, on the death of Alexander.
      His (John Sturrock's) maternal grandfather was a tenant at Mill of Lour (
      near Forfar).
      This removes the first discrepancy simply replacing paternal by materna
      l.
      John?s father William, was first married on 7 June 1827 to Ann Lumgair. T
      hey had the following family; Alexander 1828, James 1829, Clementina 18
      30, David 1832, Andrew 1834, William Fairly 1836, Robert 1837. (The Fai
      rly or Fairlie surname figures prominently in the annals of Monikie his
      tory.)
      William remarried on 26th June 1840 to Mary Petrie from Mill of Lour. T
      hey had six children; John 1840, Anne 1842, George 1845, Isabella 1847, E
      lizabeth 1849, Mary 1851.
      William refers to transgression in his letter to David in America, the c
      ause is evident above, when he remarried he had children from Ann Lumga
      ir aged 12, 11, 10, 8, 6, 4, and 3.
      On 6 December 1867, John married Ann Sturrock, in the 1881 census they a
      re shown as living at Kerrystone, Murroes (a parish to the west of Moni
      kie). He describes himself as a joiner journeyman, they have two of a f
      amily Margaret P. Sturrock
