Who are the parents of the Christina Lamb born about 1826 in Aberdeenshire Scotland>

+5 votes
Christina Lamb is on the 1851 Scotland census living on Watt Street with a Marget Lamb who is identified as her mother.


Christina has her daughters with her.

Jemima Stewart b 07/01/1847 in Dundee to James Stewart, Land Steward,and Christina Lamb.


Catharine Rattray b. 12/04/1850 to James Rattray, brewer, and Christina Lamb.

Christina married James Rattray, 25/11/1851.

Christina indicates that she was born in Aberdeenshire on the 1851, 1861, 1871, and 1881 censuses.

Christina Rattray(nee Lamb) died January second, 1884.  Her parents are listed as:

John, Lamb, shoemaker(master) - deceased

Jean Lamb Ms. Doig - deceased


I have a  27/08/1809 marriage certificate for a John Lamb Shoemaker and Margaret Doeg in Coupar, Angus.  Both were from that parish.  

The website  doing.net/DAVE1730.html has a Margaret Doig marrying a John Lamb.

 This Margaret was born 21 June, 1789 in Forfar.

Margaret  had a sister born 20 Feb. 1788.

I have found the records for three children for these parents, but  they do not have a daughter named Christina born in 1826 in Aberdeenshire.  

These are their children.

Agnes Lamb b. 1810/1811 in Angus Scotland


Robert Lamb b. 1811 in Calton, Coupar, Angus


Jannet Lamb b. 1829 in Old Machar, Aberdeenshire.


There is a  May 8, 1851 death record for a Margaret Lamb relic of John Lamb, Shoemaker.  Margaret was living on Watt Street which is where Christina and her children were living with a Marget.

I have found this web site to be a wonderful research tool for my Scots ancestors:


I don't have a current subscription and so I cannot search fully for you.  However, I noted only match for a Christina Lamb in the old parish registers for a birth between 1820 and 1830.

I hope that this helps
