    Mr Elison of Milntown, Moray

    I'm digging into my Y-DNA results and this has resulted in a few interesting lines of enquiry.

    My ancestors James Cumming & Jannet Munro had four children that I know of. I have transcribed their baptismal records:


    Barbara daughter of James Cumming & Janet Munro in Miltown was born 13 Nov 1776 and baptised 15 Nov 1776. Witnesses: Mr Elison & James Miller of Tillydivie. Parish of Edinkillie.
    Jane daughter of James Cumming & Janet Munro in Miltown was born 14 Jan 1779 and baptised 16 Jan 1779. Witnesses: Mr Elison & Peter Cumming. Parish of Edinkillie.
    James Cumming was born 23 May 1782 and was baptised 25 May 1782. Witnesses: Mr Elison in Milntown and Mr Buie in Relugas. Parish of Edinkillie.
    Janet daughter of James Cumming & Janet Munro in Tullydivie was born 1 Jun 1786 and baptised 4 Jun 1786. Witnesses: Thomas Cumming & Alexander Cumming at Milntown. Parish of Edinkillie.

    This Mr Elison may have been a minister, given his title. I see the FMP have a set of records entitled, "Church Of Scotland Ministers 1560-1949"

    I've done a search, but my sub ran out a couple of months ago - apparently there is one result which matches a surname of Elison (with or without name variants).
    If someone could tell me what the result says that would be very kind.

    Many thanks!
    Kind regards,

    I am having a look but no luck so far. I also get one result but can't so far find am "Elison" on the page - will keep looking.
    I wonder if he was a minister would he have been called "Mr" - or "Rev"??

      Thanks Herky. I'm told that at the time (c1780) ministers were known as 'Mr' because they had gained an M.A. from university.

          Thanks Vera - not what I was hoping for but you have at least ruled it out. Thanks for your time.

              Just a thought - maybe Mr Elison was just a relative - there is a marriage in 1710 in Kinloss just 11.8 miles by google map to Edinkillie Church. John Elison married a Jean Cumming.
