The Board for Geologists and Geophysicists (Board) issued a citation and fine of $500.00 to Sam Arbuthnot for violation of section 7872(a) of the Business and Professions Code (Geologist and Geophysicist Act). According to Board records, Sam Arbuthnot was at all times relevant not licensed by the Board as a Registered Geologist and thereby authorized to practice geology in the State of California. The citation was issued to Sam Arbuthnot for unlicensed practice of geology while conducting a property transfer site assessment in Malibu, California (Bus. & Prof. Code §7872(a), practice of geology without legal authority). Sam Arbuthnot signed a property transfer site assessment letter report constituting the professional practice of geology entitled “353 Acre Parcel in Malibu, CA on P.C.H.”, dated February 12, 2001, which was subsequently provided to potential property buyers without the required California certified licensee signature or seal. In accordance with section 125.9(d) of the Business and Professions Code which specifies that payment of the fine does not constitute admission of the violation charged and represents satisfactory resolution of the matter, Sam Arbuthnot agreed to pay the fine and the case was closed on October 10, 2002.

         Kay Birkett        Table 3 / 58 question
       I am looking for information to support a family which has been patched together from puzzle pieces. I believe Thomas Arbuthnot's mother was Dorothea Jones Arbuthnot husband may have been John or Robert? Her father was Col. Thomas Jones. Can take this family back to England no problem. Letters written between Col. Jones and his wife who went back to England in an attempt to recover her health (published in the
William and Mary Quarterly and the Virginia Genealogical Magazine).  I believe Thomas' son was John Arbuthnot [4] who married a Jane Burton (Table 58). They lived in the far Western Co. of Virginia which were if course all of the burned Co. of Virginia. I believe that John was the father of James of St. Helena Parish LA. John of Gibson Co. Indiana, Francis of Sumner Co. TN and Sally Arbuthnot Williams of Memphis TN.
Response:  This is addressed on Table 3 and Table 58. Kay seems to be drawing a conclusion rather than propounding a theory. Credit is due to Jo Ann Mardis for the discovery that Dorothea had no children by either husband.

        Why was Arbuthnot ("Mildred" or "Milly") Trosper so named? Born Burke Co., NC c.1795/1800; died between 1840-1850? Daughter of James Trosper (born 1774; died 1862) by his wife, Nellie Mahon (married Knox, KY 11 August 1800 per IGI or 11 August 1808). He was son of Nicholas Trosper Sr (b.1747) by Sallye Burchfield. Or maybe Nicholas was her father? She married in Clark Co., Indiana, 8 January 1820 Simon Erwin, son of John Erwin, Sr. (born Burke Co., North Carolina c.1795; died in Clark/Floyd Co., Indiana).  She married Lawrence Co., IN 1842 Thomas Mosely (one source only). According to a contributor to her dates were 1771-1827 (we doubt it).
Lucy McTamney replies:     James Trosper's wife (only wife as far as I know) was Nellie Mahon.   They were both still alive, in Laurel Co. KY in 1860.  I do not believe that James and Nellie were the parents of Arbuthnot Mildred Trosper.  She is generally attributed to Nicholas Trosper (b.1747), also father of James.  Mildred was born between 1795 and 1800 and married Simon Erwin in Indiana in 1820.  Nicholas' wife is usually listed as Sallye Burchfield, although there's no written record proving this.  We know his wife in 1817 was "Sallye." Nicholas & Sallye's children may have included Robert Trosper (, m.1810 Obedience/Phoebe), Elijah Trosper Sr (b.1773), James Trosper (1774-1862), Peter Trosper (b.1778/9, d aft 1860) married Matilda Caroline Patton, Nicholas Livingstone Trosper Jr (1781-1851), Rebecca Trosper (b.1793), John Trosper (b.1789 possibly son of Robert), Arbuthnot ("Milly") Trosper (1795-1845), William B Trosper (b.1804).
    The question that arises is where the name "Arbuthnot" that seems to be attached to Mildred comes from.  I don't find anybody from this family in KY or IN, or any other reference to the Arbuthnot family.  Possibly Mildred was married for a brief time to an Arbuthnot, or that her mother's maiden name was Arbuthnot.  Or do you think Mildred could have been born an Arbuthnot, married briefly to a Trosper, then married Simon Erwin in 1820?  A group sheet in names Arbuthnott as a daughter of Peter, son of Nicholas.

        Information sought:     I have just learned that an ancestor born in 1801 around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,  Mary Ferguson, who later became Mrs. James Watts probably around 1820, likely in Highland County, Ohio (near Cincinnati), as a widow at some point in later life married someone named Arbuthnot.    That's all I know about an Arbuthnot connection at this point.   I am seeking to learn who that person was for genealogical education. Mary Ferguson was the fourth and last apparent child of John Ferguson, Sr. with Janet Wier, married in 1786.  John Ferguson was of Scot descent (ancestors from Glenshee Valley in Highlands), born in Bovevagh, Derry, Ireland in 1757 in the Ferguson family home built in 1604, built by the four brothers who arrived there from Scotland. Ferguson came to the "colonies" in 1774 at Philadelphia, alone apparently, and initially settled in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania where he was married to Wier, whose father was from Holland.  Wier and Ferguson were both patriots in the Revolutionary War.

Response:  Hugh and Margaret were alive 1404-1419  - Table a2 .  This book is NOT a book of the descendants of Hugh & Margaret and is not authorised, approved or recommended by anybody within the AFA. The title is misleading; we understand the book shows the link between Keith - Johnson - Isaacs - Miller.

        Who is:      
Charles Arbuthnot Lock. Born England 19 Oct 1911. Naturalised as an American in Wyoming
While reseaching my own family I came across a Charles Lock who was my Great Grandmothers brother. He was born around 1886/87 in Edgefield Norfolk England and at the time of the 1901 Census was age 13 and a stockman on farm. He was living with his family: - Father Samuel, mother Mary Ann, brother Charles, sisters Miriam and Sarah (my great gran). We know he emigrated to America as a young man and I found Charles Arbuthnot Lock on the Ellis Island site.  This Charles seems to be the same person. He came from Edgefield, was 22yrs and 2mths old on 19th June 1909. He sailed on the St Louis and gave his destination address as Redlands Ranch, Wyoming. While the dates do not seem to fit with your enquiry the name (somewhat unusual) and Wyoming connection suggest this is the person you are looking for? I believe decendants of Charles Lock are currently living in Maryland. Jenny Foster

      Searching re:   Robert Arbuthnot & Elizabeth Nevin  ... Table 6

My gggg-grandparents were Robert Arbuthnot & Elizabeth Nevin who came to Canada in 1834 with their son, Robert, and their daughter Esther Ann (who was married to James Kyle).
I was visiting a web site tonight (
and found the following paragraph:
"Robert Arbuthnot and his wife Elizabeth Nevin went to Canada from Co.Antrim in about 1834. They had several sons, who established the Eastern Ontario branch of the family. Their daughter, Ann, married James Kyle."
I was wondering if you knew anything about who Robert Arbuthnot's/Elizabeth Nevin's parents were and if they had any siblings.  Through my research, I think I have been able to establish that Elizabeth came from Portglenone, Antrim, N. Ireland.  Did Robert come from there as well?
RESPONSE: I wrote that in about 1977-8, the source being letters sent in response to the inauguration of the Arbuthnott Family Association. Much work has been done since then and you are absolutely right. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. We are writing to the webmaster of that site and are sure he will amend it; it is not a site under our control, but there are links to some excellent pages. Our own site contains an amended book11 which reflects our current understanding. Christy Bing

        Searching for:   Arbuthnots on line
My ggrandmother, Nancy Arbuthnot, married John McBride after the death of her first husband, John Thompson (my ggrandfather). Would this be in your line?

RESPONSE:  Hildred is a Canadian (British Columbia) woman who is trying to trace her ancestor Nancy Arbuthnot, who married John Thompson in Ontario in 1823 after immigrating to Canada, probably both from County Antrim. Hildred has been told that after John's death, Nancy married John McBride (no relation to Karen Wright McBride). I can't find any Nancy in my records from Ireland that would fit. It seems that there is a relationship to people on Table 6 by the name of Helmer (her gg grandfather Benjamin Helmer was a third cousin of Peter Helmer) but I don't think that is an Arbuthnot connection. - Betsy Henry

From: Nancy Arbuthnot Johnson   .... Table 40       Date:  17 July 2000
Your April 22nd 1999 message posted on the website caught my attention for several reasons. I share your g-g-grandmother's name and my own g-g-g-grandmother's name was also Nancy Arbuthnot. She immigrated to Mariposa Township (not so far from Cornwall) in the 1840s from Scotland (Table 40).
I am aware of two Arbuthnots (born in Ireland) who immigrated to Canada in the mid-1830s and resided in the Cornwall area. Their names are Robert and Margaret (perhaps father and daughter). I know nothing more about them however.
You may find the Ontario 1871 census data for heads and strays, which is searchable on-line at, a useful resource in your search.
Good luck and best regards,
