My 3 X Great Grandmother was Lilias Mearns who was baptised 13 April 1768 in St Paul's Episcopal Aberdeen, Scotland. Her parents were Benjamin Mearns and Isobel Ridol. She married George Cruickshank in Aberdeen in 1790. I think I've found Benjamin's baptism on the IGI which states 23 Sep 1738 in Fetteresso Kincardine, Scotland. His father was Alexander. No mother given. Anyone connect?
