THE DESCENDANTS OF STEPHEN ARBUTHNOTT AND MARGARET, née FINDLAY.

 

STEPHEN ARBUTHNOTT. We guess he is the Stephen who was baptized Montrose 6 August 1769, son of Alexander Arbuthnott and Jean Mill of Benholm (Table 13) though it would be very difficult to prove this entry is relevant for the Stephen, details of whose marriage and descendants follow. Birth/baptism not recorded in old parochial registers of Benholm, Garvock, Bervie, Arbuthnott or St Cyrus, 1760-1782. Death not recorded in O.P.R. Benholm 1799-1820. Married (no record in Kincardineshire 1770-1800) MARGARET FINDLAY (who might be she who died Benholm c.27 February 1820). They were not included in the 1841 Census.
