Milne Ancestors in the North-East of Scotland
Researching MILNE in Aberdeen is a daunting task, and I have made little progress toward establishing any credible ancestry for that part of my family.

Alexander Milne married Elspet Martin in Aberdeen in 1791. They had (at least) two children; Margaret (1792-1877) and Alexander (b 1794).

Margaret married my ggg-grandfather William Bremner in 1824. He died, as far as I can ascertain, before 1841. I have yet to find Margaret in the 1841 or 1851 census for Aberdeen, although by 1861 she was working as a sick nurse in a private home in Aberdeen. I have not been able to trace her brother Alexander.

Ancestral data sent to the LDS many years ago suggests that Margaret Milne was "of Virginia Street" in Aberdeen. Certainly there are a lot of links within my family to the dock area of Aberdeen, including the Shiprow and Marischal Street.
