        (3) William Garden. Born Belhelvie, Aberdeenshire 28 March 1639. Farmer at Treveltie, Kinkell (now Tavelty, near Kintore) 1696. Possibly William Garden of Kinerney, Aberdeenshire. He married Mrs William Garden and had children marked ♣. It must have been another William Garden who married at St Nicholas, Aberdeen 17 April 1673 Jean Wallace (born c.1639) of Kinerney (because the children's dates of baptism are 8-10 years out). [There seems to be a generation missing when you get back to George Garden and Elspet Forbes if you go by the dates shown here. There are some children not included on the gedcom as I have not found any reference to them on the IGI as yet. When I do we will include them in there unless someone else finds a different link.
Sheena sent Greg a Pedigree Chart a while a go and on it she had Alexander Garden c 1568 married about 1599 to Janet Strachan and they had Major Alexander Garden about 1629 along with a brother Captain George Garden. My question is if Alexander and Janet married when they did, why would they wait 30 years to have their first child? Also if Reverend George Garden of Clatt was born about 1606 why would his brother Alexander Garden who married Janet Strachan be born c1568? I still feel that somewhere there is a generation missing. I have also been handed information on Mary Garden the Opera Singer who we have been told has a connection to the Garden family and I am tracing this also to see if this is so. With the information that I have found and also what we have been given with information on the Garden families from Aberdeen especially Belhelvie and Banffshire I still believe that there is a generation missing back after George Garden of Clatt to John Garden who married Beatrice Gordon.]

[Unproven - Francis could be son of Rev George Garden by Elspet Forbes (md 1636) ]  [There seems rather a large gap between this birth and the George/Nicolas parents' marriage date]  Francis Garden of Midstrath. Born c. 1640 c.1600.

[CAH suggested his dates were 1680-1778 while Gail Elizabeth Garden Wright says that an Alexr (d.1778), son of John Garden (born c.1657), son of George Garden (born c.1576), son of Arthur Garden and Elspet Gordon md Janet Robinson - all of which seems unlikely]. Minister of Kinerney, then of Birse. Married first New Machar 4 November 1731 Jean Anderson [*2] (born c.1710).

These families were related to Garden of Troup, and were tacksmen and factors for the Panmure and Glenesk portions of the forfeited estates...  The parish of Lochlee was not erected into an independent charge till 1723, when the Rev. Mr Garden was appointed minister.
