My gg grandmother was Mary Christie, b. around 1852.I'm still trying to connect them but I strongly suspect her parents were Andrew Christie/Elizabeth Easdale m. 1845 in Port Glasgow. (Mary's eldest daughter was named Elizabeth Easdale Porteous born 1870 in Port Glasgow).
The 1851 Census states Elizabeth Easdale was 35 years old placing her birth around 1816.The Census also states her birth place as Abbey (Paisley). I've hit a problem as the only Eliz. Easdale I can find, born around that time, was in 1814, Coylton, Ayrshire to William Esdale & Mary Semple.
Does anyone recognise any of these names or have any information on Elizabeth's parents, birth place etc.
