I am researching John NORRIE/NORRY baptised 1822 in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. John Norrie was a blacksmith, as was his father William Norry.John Norrie married Isobella LOGGIE September 8, 1856 in Inverurie.John and Isobella Norrie had one child, Robina Margaret Norrie born July 1857 in Belhelvie, Aberdeenshire and possibly others I have not yet found.
I lose John Norrie after the 1861 census where he was living in Monymusk, Aberdeenshire with his wife, daughter and mother, Mary BOWMAN Norrie.I am wondering if he left Britain as I cannot find the family on the 1881 census.
My connection is a son James Bowman Norrie (JBN) that was born to John Norrie and Barbara Reid in 1847, prior to John’s marriage to Isobella Loggie.I have collected a lot of information on the descendants of J. B. Norrie who came to Canada in the 1890s which I would happily share with any family member.I have very little information on JBN’s father John Norrie or grandfather William Norrie.
Has anyone seen my John Norrie in New Zealand or South Africa perhaps or is he playing hide and seek in Britain somewhere?Any leads appreciated.
