Hi, I have just joined Scotland.com and seen your post, so not sure if it will still be active. Peter Aitken (my 4x Great Grandfather)died 22nd Feb 1815 aged 55yrs. He was married to Elizabeth Kerr on 17th September 1822. Two of their children went to Australia John Aitken born 11th October 1829 and died in Australia on 20th September 1908, also Alexander Aitken born October21st 1832-died in Australia 17th April 1916.
Their other siblings were:-
David 1825-1899
Elizabeth 1827-1909
Peter 1831-1919
Andrew 1834-Died 9 months
Margret Agnew1836-1919
Agnes 1839-1914
Hugh Alexander 1840-1928
William 1842 Died 9 months
James Bennet 1846

All of Peter and Margaretís children were born in Stranraer. David died in Gourock Scotland and Peter died in Edinburgh Scotland, all the remaining children died in Stranraer Scotland.

The above information came from Peter Aitkens family bible.

Do any of these members of the Aitken connect to your family tree?
If so, I would be very interested in any information you can share.

Best Wishes
