1. Hellen Brown

Alexander Simpson

  • Born: 21 Feb 1731, Larbert, Stirling, Scotland
  • Marriage (1): Hellen Brown on 20 Dec 1750 in Muiravonside, Stirling, Scotland

bullet  General Notes:

The only Alexander Simpson (including variants of the name) born in Stirlingshire between 1723 and 1733 was born to Robert Simpson & Margaret Wauch in 1731. Witnesses were Adam Simpson and Archibald Whyte. Some researchers in the US believe this Alexander Simpson married Elizabeth Barre and ended his days in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania (12 Nov 1822). Hoever, a DNA connection with Alexander's parents would seem to confirm that I am correct.

On the same page as his record is one for Janet Simpson born to Adam Simpson and Elizabeth Mitchell. More research required to establish any family connection here but given that Adam was a witness to Alexander's birth it would seem there is (possibly Robert's brother).

There is a record of a Birth for an unnamed child to Alexander and Hellen on 23 Jan 1757 but there is the word "Errata" beside it suggesting it is a mistake. Given that Margret was born in June of 1757 this seems to have been some sort of misrecording.


Alexander married Hellen Brown on 20 Dec 1750 in Muiravonside, Stirling, Scotland. (Hellen Brown was born about 1729 in Larbert, Stirling, Scotland.)

bullet  Marriage Notes:

The marriage record is for Alexander Simpson & Helen BROUN. They are both described as Parishioners. Part of the record is missing but it appears that the witnesses were Robert La(ird??) and John Boog. Robert Laird and/or John Boag were both witnesses at one or more of the children's birth too.
