Hi Sylvia and all
Have you checked the OPR CD Rom at the LDS Family History Centre? It gives
you the film and frame number from which the event was extracted. It will be
the St. Quivox parish register. Then you can order out the film and read it
for yourself. Very likely she was born in St. Quivox as well, and you could
find her birth there. Her father's name and occupation may be given on the
parish register entry of the marriage. As a cross reference, check the CDRom
for Robert CADDIES as well as for her.
A sweep of the St. Quivox 1851 Census may get the family living there just
before her marriage, and that would also provide her birthplace. Look under
all three names.
The Census entry for the family in KIlmaurs in 1861 should also list her
Also, check the index to civil registration for Scotland and see if you can
find her death certificate. It will list her father's name, her mother's
name, including the maiden name, and her maiden name. LDS Family History
Centres have some of the Scottish certificates on file. If they don't have
the year you need, you may have to send to Edinburgh for it. The Parish no.
for St. Quivox is 612, and for Kilmaurs is 598. Both the Civil Registration
and Parish Registers are located through these numbers.
Hope this helps, good hunting

I am trying to trace my GGGrandmother Janet Hall,Haw or Dow. Each of
these names has been suggested or recorded.
She married Robert Caddies in St Quivox 3 Oct 1851,
because of the different surnames I have not yet been able to find
out where she was born. by 1861 they were living in Kilmaurs.
If anyone can shed any light on Janet I would be grateful.
