Part 591d - Smith Robertson Genealogy - 1759 Baptism - GGGG-Granduncle Thomas Dudgeon - Fogo, Scotland

18 October 2011

Good Day,

The composition of the genealogy and ancestry of my Dudgeon Family Line now takes me to 1759. It is 17 April 1759, the baptism of gggg-granduncle Thomas Dudgeon. He is the eldest son, currently in my records, of ggggg-grandparents Thomas and Janet (née Hope) Dudgeon.

The Baptism entry, as recorded, is in what appears to be the joint Stichill and Hume Parochial Records of Roxburghshire and Berwickshire, Scotland. It also indicates that gggg-granduncle Thomas’ father, ggggg-grandfather Thomas Dudgeon is a Miller in Fogo Miln. The inserted image is the Fogo Parish Church and Cemetery.

Hume is in Berwickshire; Stichill in Roxburghshire. The distance between the two locations is 2.9 miles (4.6 kilometers) just about 6 minutes apart. Fogo is now focused and from Stichell it is about 10.6 miles (17.1 kilometers) and an additional 21 minutes away.

And ggggg-grandfather Thomas Dudgeon is registered as a Miller… But wait, one of the witnesses to the baptism of gggg-granduncle Thomas Dudgeon is John Hope, of Hardies Miln. Could this be a relative of ggggg-grandmother Janet (née Hope) Dudgeon? Hardies Miln or Hardiesmilne, in the Genuki Berwickshire Gazetteer gives Hume Parish as where it lies in.

Here is the image of the page of the Old Parochial Record.

And my transcription –
