Looking for mother of CAPTAIN DAVID BUCHAN born Scotland 1779 I find there is only one David born that year christening 30.5.1779 at Kinnoul, Perth, parents beingHELEN FISKEN AND DAVID BUCHAN.I found a marriage for them 14.1.1771. I would love to hear from anyone who can tell me about Helen Fisken's family and life, where she died etc or about her husband David Buchan.
Perhaps they only had one child.Perhaps Helen died early as young David Buchan was sent to sea at the age of 10 years with I read a Captain Wilson as cabin boy on "Inconstant". Captain David Buchan was a descendant of Thomas the General it is muted.His son John Hitchcock Buchan wrote that he did not remember his g'father but felt that he was a wine merchant out of London and that he must have died when he was very young. If anyone has the Scottish official BDM could they check for births in 1779 Many thanks from Australia Margaret Ashby
