Peter, I am very interested to see if we have common ancestors. One of my gg grandmothers was Helen Aiken, born 13/7/1814 to William Aiken and Helen? She married Alexander Jamieson (b 12/1/1789 in Aberdeen) on 25/8/1842 in St. Dunstan's Stepney,London where her parents were living. Helen emigrated to South Australia in 1853 with her family, and after Alexander died here on 3 Aug 1868, she went to Gisborne in NZ to live with her daughters. Family stories are that both the Aiken and Jamieson families came to London from Aberdeen, but so far I have been unable tolocate documentation that confirms this or their ancestors in Aberdeen. Hopefully you can help.
