Does anyone have a family tree or any information on ancestors and/or descendants of Alexander Bain born Thurso, Caithness in 1811?

Yes, I do he is my great,great,great,great uncle and I'm still researching the family tree. Please let me know what info you want and I'll see if I can help.

Thanks for your msg. We have been told by a distant relative that he is also our great great etc uncle! Our grandmother was Jessie Bain. Can you provide details of Alexander's parents, siblings and offspring -names - DOB's or anything else. Most grateful. Where do you fit in? Perhaps we're also related! Regards Linda Peek

I don't have a Jessie Bain in my records but that's not surprising as he had 12 siblings and I haven't managed to find any of their offspring yet, it is a mammoth task.I come from his brother John b 1812 d 1899. He was my 3 times great grandad. Sorry

Madge - thanks for that. Have a look at my cousin Andy's web page at http://www.andyhutchinson.com and you will find what we know about Jessie Bain. It's not a very complete family tree - I think he got it done by one of those internet genealogy search services - latter day saints or whatever. You can email me at: [email protected] Linda

Madge - mistake in my email - it's [email protected]

An Australian address but actually I'm in Paris. Linda

Had a look at your cousins web page. I will keep a note of your e mail address and get in touch if I can connect Jessie with my family tree. Good luck with your search meantime and maybe somebody else out there can help you before me.

Do you know if a family tree exists for Alexander? He had two children didn't he? Do you know their names and where they ended up? I gather Alexander died in the same nursing home in Scotland where one of my uncles died - penniless.

Dear Madge - my sister and I have gone through the information and come up with the conclusion that if Alexander Bain is indeed related to us, his father has to have been a brother to our Thomas Bain born who was born in 1769. Do you have details of Alexander's father's siblings? If there was a Thomas, was he born in 1769?
