Query for Lord THOMAS ELDER:

From: Abbie Angharad Hughes <abbies>

Subject: My Research Interests
.......
2) An allegedly linked line is that of THOMAS ELDER 1737-1799
Lord Provost of Edinburgh and Postmaster General of Scotland,
former wine merchant who married Elizabeth Man.
They had one son WILLIAM ELDER and their
eldest of 4 daughters,
Isabella, married the Principal of Edinburgh University,
George Husband Baird 1761-1840.
This line begins with William Elder
Engineer in 17th century,
then Alexander Elder of Forres near Inverness,
his son William Elder of Loaning near Pitlochry
b ca 1710 to 1780 at least, father of Thomas above and of Charles
1749-1823. Charles was in the Royal Navy and
taken prisoner by the Americans in 1777 for 13 months with an address
at Rhode Island.
Later appointed to Lord Howe's flagship *The Eagle* and in
action against the French off Rhode Island in 1778. I would be
interested to hear from anyone
who knows more about the origin of Alexander Elder in this
line, and about any collateral lines.

KING JAMES meets HENRY ELDER of PERTH:
http://www.visitdunkeld.com/perth-royal-visitors.htm
"James returned to Falkland Palace after his visit, and Perth
Town Council seized the opportunity to solicit his assistance towards
“the expense of upholding the Bridges of Tay and Earn.” The latter
was in a ricketty condition, and had been so
for the past three years; the Tay bridge was that built by John Milne
in 1605 presumably it had not yet been paid for! "...
"The deputation on the matter to Falkland Palace consisted of
Alexander Peebles, bailie, and Henry Elder, treasurer.
James VI contributed 40,000 merks for the purpose of restoring The
Bridge crossing the
Tay. But until 1771, 150 years after floods washed it away, no new
bridge was constructed."

"The Howff is Dundee's oldest surviving cemetery.
Bequeathed to the town by Mary Queen of Scots,
it was the main burial ground for around 300 years,
closing to interments in the mid 19th century.
"Members of Tay Valley and members of the
Friends of Dundee City Archives
have worked together over a number of years
on indexing the burial registers and
then computerising the index.
At present not all entries are included and some editing is still
required. We have people working on this at the moment."
