Child 2: Alexander CORMACK

Child 3: Henry Sutherland CORMACK

Note on Husband: David CORMACK

Supposedly known as the Sympathetic Laird because he didn't press people for their rent.

Seems somewhat dubious, since he is recorded as a shoemaker! If anything this might possibly refer to his father who did at least own some land. Perhaps David inherited this and had tenants?

 

Died aged 64 according to his death certificate - but would be 65 if christening date is correct.

 

In 1851 census he is shown as a lodger with William and Catherine Waters in Castletown to New Libmister road. He was born in Bower.

 

Name is mis-spelt as David Cormach in marriage entry in Scotlandspeople

 

In 1841 census shown as living with parents Alexander Cormack and Hellen Reach. Address is shown as Brabsterdorran. Children George, Margaret and Alexander are also living there.

 

It is not certain that the people I have identified as his parents are the right ones. Dates don't quite tie up with ages - but there are so many inconsistencies in the records it's still possible they're correct.
