NAPIER of Kilsyth

From extractions by Ken STEWART from the Parish Registers of Kilsyth, Stirling, Scotland for the years 1686 to about 1740. They are supplemented through the use of the IGI with register batch numbers.

This Napier family also includes the contributed research of

Kathy HARWOOD. < countrykatie2002@yahoo,com > which enabled me to do some serious cross-checking of my own extractions.

My thanks also to the many others who have contributed their family data. They are mentioned in the Kilsyth trees with their email addresses ...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This tree is provided to family historians without prejudice. I have constructed most of my family trees using the data I have available, and in a few cases it is estimated as the best fit from available choices. In this tree, several of the links are yet to be proved, so any help that you can give to confirm any line would be appreciated by me and others searching in this family. More modern families also need your inputs, because as I can link modern families to each other, and thus it enables a focus on their common ancestry. The memories of one branch may not be complete, but yet may fill in gaps of another branch. Only by a concerted effort can we really define the true lineage. Help me to help you by sharing what you have. I have included the contributor's email addresses within the file. My thanks to you all. Ken STEWART < kjstew@iinet.net.au >

LINKS

You can move up and down through generations by clicking on the hyperlinks. Use spouses to go down generations and parents to go back to earlier generations. Bold links usually go to different family files

ABBREVIATIONS USED

KPR-KS - the Kilsyth Parish Registers of Scotland usually transcribed by me "KS" from films of the originals

IGI reg - from parish register films from the International Genealogical Index of the Latter Day Saints. Usually a reliable source

IGI - from non recognised sources in the International Genealogical Index of the Latter Day Saints. Not necessarily a reliable source

Place names follow the standard Chapman Codes, eg Stirling = Sti etc.

Person's names are as found in the original records, so expect many spelling variations.

b. = born,               bp. = baptised,      m. = married,          d. = died,                bd. = buried.

occ: = occupation / biographical notes.           wit: = witnesses to events.

"c" before year date to show an estimated year

"cc" before year date to show I have used the spouse's date data as a rough guide
