Re: ARNOT/T in Fife, Scotland

Can you help me, I too am tracing my Arnot(t) roots.
I have managed to take my paternal line back to 1839. Andrew Arnot(t) was born on 29/1/1839 in Aberdour, Fife. He was the illegitimate son of James Arnot and Magdelene Baxter.
James was dead by 1859, when Andrew's son's (another Andrew Arnot(t)!) birth in Dalgety was recorded.
Magdelene, meanwhile married an Alexander Scott in 1843.
James is proving difficult to locate. He was a weaver originally but later was described as an outdoor worker.
Do you have any information that could help me?
