I'm so sorry to hear about William. His email came back just a few minutes ago and I had a bad feeling. William and I corresponded for several years mostly about the Mackenzie family and our connection. We are cousins through that family. He was so knowledgeable and wonderful to work with. I've been emersed in a Mackenzie project for the last 2+ years and just finished it...I wanted to share it with him.

Sending my prayers to his family (he talked about you all the time). He will be missed. xx Sincerely ~ Deborah

Thank you so much, I will pass this on to his family.

Hi My 3rd great grandparents were James McIntosh and Elizabeth Arbuthnott. They got married on the 25 September 1786 at Fordoun Kincardine. James was serving under Captain Smiths Independent Company of Invalids in St Helier Jersey. His son James was born in Elizabeth Castle St Helier in 1797 also there Daughter Elizabeth Ann Mary born 1799 at the same place.

Stuart, you will note my cousin William died in October 2021. He therefore cannot answer your query. William's branch of the family spell their surname Arbuthnot with 1 "t". It is many generations since they split from the Viscounts of Arbuthnott line. I suggest you raise your query on G2G.
Oh, so sorry to see of his passing. We "spoke" a couple of times, seems of course, that we are Cousins............

After collaborating with Sir William Arbuthnot of Kittybrewster on WikiTree for several years, particularly researching and documenting difficult-to-connect Arbuthnot lines, we struck up quite an odd little email friendship and touched base frequently. His appreciation of the 'art' of genealogy and his commitment to creating an accurate Arbuthnot family tree, one that reaches around the world, leaves behind an incredible legacy.

As leader of Wiki Tree's Arbuthnot Project, his enthusiasm was catching. He shared with me how his father introduced him to genealogy when he was 12, that his "memory of how my cousins fitted together was so poor that I had to write them all down," thus setting him off on a journey that led to an astounding collection of perhaps thousands of Arbuthnot branches connecting hundreds of thousands of people spread across the globe. "Very respectable folk," he once wrote, "until you get to a rogue or two – but, every family has at least one rogue, I suspect." He believed, though, that with each successive generation, "mankind can outgrow its limitations." Aptly stated, as William strove to grow beyond his own limitations and connect his extended family together, for himself and for his progeny. It is unlikely any such recent genealogical undertaking has reached so far and so wide as Sir William's body of work has done.

“I value the genealogy for its own sake," he wrote in April 2020, as he further compared the ongoing organizational tasking of such a massive body of work to Lewis Caroll's "Hunting of The Snark" ~ with pointed reference to the eager Bellman seeking assistance from a crew he relied on, but uncertain of his own capacity ~the kind of man Sir William did not want to be~ tolling away the hours in nonsensical endeavors ending in folly or futility. And, indeed, he was not. For, unlike Carroll's Bellman, Sir William knew exactly the look and character of the legacy he was seeking, and how to find it.

Sir William's clever humor and easy candor made the genealogy "hunt" more pleasurable and richly rewarding of those of us whose lives he touched, even briefly. It was his desire, he wrote, that all of his genealogical research and work remain easily accessible for future generations. And, while his name may not be stamped on a massive leatherbound volume detailing every Arbuthnot branch worldwide, as he had hoped might occur, innumerable descendants, as many as are stars in the sky, now connect across time and distance. So, as Carroll writes of the Bellman's crew, whom the Bellman had landed with care, "...they drank to his health, and they gave him three cheers... .” Similarly, this Wiki Tree Crew mate raises a glass to William's memory and his enduring legacy.

Three Cheers, Sir William Arbuthnot of Kittybrewster, Three Cheers and More! Well done.

I am so sorry for your loss. Sir William was a dear, darling, lovable man to chat with about the Urquhart I was researching. He was so kind, patient and helpful. He spoke of the Parkinson's, and yet he seemed eternally to will himself to do more. He explained so much to me, and gave me links to places to research more on the Urquhart's.

We will miss him here as well. Yours always, Sherry

posted by Sherry Bartlett
Dear Sherry,

Thank you very much for your kind message. We will all miss him hugely, of course, and it is comforting to know that he was appreciated by so many around the world in the Wikitree community.

I am the eldest of the five of us, and for one of my little brothers to predecease me is ... unreal. But his body had been doing him no favours, for some years. Thank you for what you have said. Best wishes, Elizabeth.

Dear Jessica,

Thank you for your message. This is James Arbuthnot, William's brother, replying, because I am very sad to report that William died on 7th October at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. As I am sure you know, he had awful Parkinson's Disease, and despite all the doctors could do, he finally succumbed. Yours ever, James

Dear James,

my condolences to you and your family. As a WikiTree team member I had many interactions with Sir William. He was always a pleasure to deal with. He will be missed, not only by myself, but by the WikiTree community. Regards Paul

Dear sir,

My name is Michael Brown. I am the head of the History department in Campbell College in Belfast. I was recently tasked with doing a little work in our school archives, and I came across the decorations of Major Clifford William Ernest Arbuthnot CIE. Clifford was an alumnus of our school. He was a pupil here between 1898 and 1902. When he died in March 1974, he bequeathed his old medals to this school, where they have been in storage ever since. I am hoping to do some projects with my students about Old Campbellians who fought in the war. Already we have researched and documented the stories of some 127 old boys who fought and died in the Great War. If you are interested in finding out more about the project, you can see the work we are doing here: https://menbehindtheglass.co.uk/the-men

These are all men who would have been at school with Clifford! I know that Clifford didn’t die in the war, but other than the fact that he then went on to serve as a superintending engineer in Bombay subsequent to the Great War, I know very little about him. I would dearly love to know a bit more of his story, especially how he came to earn all his decorations. Moreover, if it were possible to locate a picture of him, I would love to make a display of his medals with his picture and some of his back story, both digitally (as in the website above) and physically in the school where he studied. If you are able to give me any assistance at all in researching more about Clifford, or can tell some more of his story, I would be really grateful. Even if you can point me in the right direction as to where to look for more information about him, I would be indebted to you.

Howdy Sir William; I am hoping you might be able to help me with my Arbuthnot ancestor of Deal, Kent England area. I am looking for an ELIZ or HELEN Arbuthnot that married Stephen or Steven Charles Culmer on june 6 1739, probably Deal area, and had at least 3 children, Stephen, John and Mary. I hope you are well and continuing to enjoy your research!

Not sure what you changed about Sarah Faulkner (Falconer) ‘s middle name.

Have to tell you that when I attended Texas Woman’s University in 1960 my favorite foreign language teacher was Associate Professor Mabel F. Arbuthnot. She was an excellent teacher. She also taught a Latin and Greek word root course which I took because I liked her so much. In following years as a teacher myself I taught what she had taught me to my Senior English students. Over the years her regurgitated work allowed many college bound students to probably up their SAT score by at least a hundred points.

Might you be related to her? I’ve never run across that name before.

I apologise for not having seen your question on my page before. Alexander Deuchar was indeed a genealogist in the first decades of the 19th century, and also responsible for the revival of the Knights Templar in Edinburgh (although with some controversy latterly). I think he died in 1844.

You may be interested to know that I have uncovered a strong connection with the Arbuthnotts as well, though not within the Deuchar strand! Close enough, however, to be described as 1st cousins (4 times removed).

posted by Andrew Deuchar
Much has grown in the trees, as another Arbuthnot led me to check, and so find in you, now, an eighth cousin. Still wondering if our Elspeth grandmothers were named for a mutual ancestress, perhaps Elspeth Hay Barclay. Any idea who yours was named for?

I'm not sure why you have not heard of the Portugal Project before now. I see you found the post to join but didn't add an answer requesting to join. As for Susie she stayed on and helped get things going and then moved on and up to other projects.

Hello. Re Charles McKenzie aka Small. He was born Charles Small in Forfar 1882. He was illegtimate and was named with his biological father's surname. His mother; Helen Valentine Ewen married a Daniel aka Donald McKenzie a few months later. Charles Small appeared as Charles Small in the 1891 Census with his Step-Father, mother and his half siblings. At some point after this he becomes Charles McKenzie, taking on his step-father's surname and his WW1 records show this (including his mother's name & residence). Hope this helps.

There is a Register of Corrections entry re Paternity which confirms his biological father as a Charles Henderson Small. I do not believe Charles Small Snr had much if any involvement with his son.

Hello Sir William.

I have discovered we have a small match on autosomal DNA. My kit number on GEDmatch is CF7867455 and I match on T465513. The vast majority of my ancestry is in Angus (Forfarshire), Kincardineshire and Banffshire, Scotland. I do have Keiths in Kincardineshire and some other names. Perhaps too far back to verify. We have a 7.1 cMs match on chr 12, 4.6 cMs on chr 10 and 5.1 on chr 6.

Many thanks.
