Jane Ryrie - Scotland to Ontario Canada
Posted by: Jan McEachran (ID *****0758) Date: October 27, 2004 at 18:28:46

My great great grandmother Jane Ryrie emigrated from Scotland to Ontario,Canada about 1845. I located a marriage for her and my great great grandfather Peter Henderson
HENDERSON, Peter                     Marriage
       Wife:       Jane KYRIE              
       Marriage Date:       18 Sep 1846       Recorded in:       Victoria District, Ontario
Source:       FHL Number 1030054       Dates:       1839-1858
Note the spelling of Ryrie, I believe this was a transcription error. I had great diffuculty finding this due to that probable error. I know her last name was Ryrie as two sons middle names were Ryrie after her surname. They later emigrated to Huron County,Ontario Canada. I have found two birthdates for Jane one being
Jane RYRIE (F)........................ B: 10 Nov 1824 Spouse: Peter HENDERSON , , Scotland
Jane RYRIE (F)........................ B: 9 Feb 1825 Spouse: Peter HENDERSON , , Scotland
Could Nov 1824 be the actual birthdate and the Feb 1825 be her christening date? We are unsure in what area of Scotland Peter was born. He mother was born in Buckhaven Wemyss,Fife,Scotland and died there in 1855. This does not mean Jane was from the same area as they may have met up in Ontario and married after their emigrations. Looking at the namimg patterns of the children: 1. Christina 2.Catherine 3.George 4. Thomas Ryrie 5.Peter R. 6. Jane Ann 7. William Ryrie 8. Agnes 9. James 10. Katherine 11. Mary. I believe Jane Ryrie's mother's first name was probably Christina or Christian . Child two Catherine was named after Peter Henderson's mother Catherine Lawrie. Third child George,I believe was named after Peter's father George Henderson and child four Thomas may have been the name of Jane Ryrie's father. Has anyone come across any info on a Thomas Ryrie who had a wife Christina or Christian? Has anyone come across any info on Jane Ryrie who emigrated to Canada?
