Ogilvie Family Connections

This page is concerned with the Ogilvie family of which little is known at present. My great grandfather, David, was the first Ogilvie discovered.

David Ogilvie is recorded on his first extract from the Register of Marriages dated 29 December 1871 as a 21 year old tailor living in Cupar. The register shows David as the son of Alexander Ogilvie and Jessie Ogilvie nee McDonald. A witness is William Ogilvie; the other is Catherine Paton. David's wife was Elizabeth Young aged 19 years whose occupation was a power loom 'weaver'.

David and Elizabeth had two children:

Ann, born 8 June 1872 at Railway Place, Cupar, Fife

Alexander, born 12 November 1873 at Dunfermline, Fife

David married Hannah Smalley on 1 January 1875 at St Andrews and St Leonard's, Fife, Scotland. She was his second wife. Witnesses were Thomas Mellis and Ann Spence. David's address at the time of marriage was Isles's Lane, Dundee and Hannah's was 33 North Castle Street, St Andrews. David's mother was still alive at this time but Hannah's parents, George Smaley, a silk weaver, and Hannah Smaley nee Braidburgh were both dead.

David and Hannah had two children:

Sarah Ann Elizabeth born 31 December 1877 at 1 Landseer Terrace, Poplar, London

David born about 1881 at Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland and died aged 6 months.


Since my grandmother Sarah's death in 1916, all contact has been lost with this part of our family.
