About Marion Peadie

MARION PEADIE (aka MARGARET PEADIE) [Note]

Marrion Peadie (1717) Marrion Peadie (1718) Marrion Peady (1719) Margaret Peadie (1721) Marrion Peadie (1723) Marion Peadie (1725) Marion Peadie (1726) Marion Peadie (1727) Merion Peadie (1732)

Note: The surname Peadie is noticed elsewhere as Peddie

Spurious Pedigree

At least eight pedigrees published by MyHeritage claim that Marion Peadie, here treated, is the same person as Margaret Peadie who is the daughter of James Peadie and his wife Anna Porterfield, MyHeritage However, this couple did not have a daughter named Marion, and it follows, therefore, that this claim is quite wrong

It is true that Marion Peadie, here treated, is referred to as Margaret Peadie in the baptismal record of her third child, a son named John, Image of Baptismal Record but there seems hardly any doubt that this is nothing more than just a clerical error. For example, she is referred to as Marrion Peadie in her marriage record, Image of Marriage Record as Marion Peadie in the burgess record of her husband, Glasgow Burgesses and as Marion or Marrion Peadie or Peady in the baptismal record of five out of six of her known children. More significantly, perhaps, since it is very probably the last time her name was recorded, she is noticed as Merion Peadie in her burial record. Image of Burial Record

The Question of Identity

Marion Peadie, here treated, is the daughter of James Peadie, Merchant in Glasgow. Glasgow Burgesses Presently, the name of her mother is not known.

Marion Peadie's father James Peadie, was a burgess and guild brother of Glasgow, but it is not possible to identify a burgess record for him. This is partly because there are gaps in the records (For example, there are gaps between 1681 and 1688, between 31 October 1693 and 9 October 1694, and between 29 September 1707 and 3 January 1712), and partly because it is difficult or impossible to distinguish between him and a number of other merchant burgesses with the same name. It may be significant, though, in view of the claim that he was the husband of Anna Porterfield, that he is not identified as James Peadie of Ruchill, or James Peadie, late Provost of Glasgow. Glasgow Burgesses
