John Coulthart - son of John Coulthart (1779-1852) of Cummertrees and Elizabeth
In searching the family of my cousin, I came across a John Coulthart bron 1804 in Cummertrees living in Kirkpatrick Fleming Scotland in the 1851 Census. He is said to be a farmer of 160 acres. He is married to Helen Carruthers from Gretna. The census indicates that some of his children were born in England and some in Scotland. This certainly ties in with the family's connection to Blackburn in Scotland where in the independent chapel there is a reference in the IGI to a John Paxley Coulthart (sic) and his wife Ellen/Helen. In 1852 the family are being visited by Elizabeth Jardine, Ellen's niece, the ancestor of my cousin.
In 1861 John Coulthart is in Liverpool with his family. I think he dies about 1861. Members of the family are still in Liverpool during the 19th century. A death of a John Paisley Coulthart is recorded in 1902. If you think this is a possible link, let me know and I will send on more detaile information.
