Edinburgh (Midlothian) Marriage Registers – 1701-1800

In the Introduction to Clan Fraser, A history celebrating over 800 years of the Family in Scotland (1997), Lady Saltoun refers to her great grandfather, Alexander Fraser, 17th (now 18th) Lord Saltoun (1820-1886), author of The Frasers of Philorth; Lords Saltoun (1879), who said that apart from his brothers and his children, his nearest Fraser relations were the Lovats.

“Although the Lovats never cleared their people from the Glens to make way for sheep, there was small prospect of advancement in life for younger sons unless they went south to one of the cities or emigrated, which is what many of them did. Some went to Edinburgh, Glasgow or London, many went to America, Canada, Australia or New Zealand and prospered and founded families there, especially in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. What is sad is that so few of them seem to have kept records of where in Scotland they came from, and this can make tracing their ancestry rather difficult. »

The difference between researching one extended Fraser family and researching several hundred Fraser families, is that you soon learn to discard the stories handed down by “family tradition”. To make matters more interesting, even the published genealogies of the better known Fraser families in Scotland don’t always tell the whole story. Hopefully, the following entries, extracted from the Edinburgh and Canongate Marriage Registers (1701-1800), will be helpful to anyone who has run into a roadblock while searching for those elusive Scottish ancestors.

By 1750 Edinburgh was a city woefully plagued by overcrowding. In fact, the population had exploded over the previous 200 years, from 12,000 in 1560 to 51,000 by 1750. Confined within the physical boundary of the old city wall, the population was faced with severe disease problems caused by poor water supply and waste disposal. About 20% of the population lived in self-constructed shacks, and stories of ten or more adults sharing one room flats were not uncommon. [W. Mackey, Edinburgh in Mid-Seventeenth Century, The Early Modern Town in Scotland, pp. 192-216]

In 1752 the Convention of Royal Burghs assented to ‘Proposals for Carrying out Certain Public Works in the City of Edinburgh’ which resolved: ‘let us boldly enlarge Edinburgh to the utmost’. Other early attempts were made to rationalise the medieval clutter of the Old Town, but it was not until George Square was laid out in 1766 beyond the royalty that the town council was finally spurred into promoting its bill to extend the royalty, which it had shelved in 1759 in the face of strong opposition from landowning interests. The council under George Drummond, the Lord Provost, initiated a competition for the design of the ‘New Town’ on the site of Barefoot’s Parks, which had been acquired in 1716 and set for feu in 1763. In 1767 a successful bill for extension was passed, the elegantly simple, classical grid-iron, gold medal winning plan of James Craig (1744-95) accepted, and the first house founded at Rose (now Thistle) Court in the same year. [John Keay & Julia Keay, Collins Encyclopaedia of Scotland, pp. 285-286]

George Drummond (1687-1766) served as Lord Provost six times: 1725, 1746, 1750-1, 1754-5, 1758-9 and 1762-3. He had fought against Mar at Sheriffmuir (1715) and raised the First or College Company (1745) in an unsuccessful attempt to prevent Prince Charles Edward and his Jacobite army from entering the city. He was the moving spirit behind plans for Edinburgh’s New Town, which became a reality after the draining of the Nor’ Loch and the commencement of the North Bridge, for which he laid the foundation stone in 1763. [Collins Encyclopaedia of Scotland, p. 248]

Archibald McAulay was Provost in 1761. He may have been the son of Archibald McAulay who was Provost in 1700, and the brother of Jean McAulay who married William Fraser of Balnain in 1748.

According to the History of Dumbartonshire, 563: “the Dumbarton Burgh Records for 21st December 1696 refer to the conduct of Helen Watson, spouse to James Williamson of Chapelton, who, in her husband’s absence, ‘had obstructed the entry of Archibald McAulay of Ardincaple into a pairt of that great tenement in Dumbarton laitlie possessed by the Laird of Macfarlane.’ The council approve of Ardincapill’s proceedings, and undertake to defend the provist’s conduct in supporting him. »

In the book Ardincaple Castle, Decline and Fall of the Lairds, the author discusses the Lairds of Ardincaple and Provost Archibald M’Aulay, as follows:

“In the year 1700 (or thereabouts) the provost of Edinburgh was a man named Archibald M’Aulay, but it is not known how he was related to the Laird of Ardincaple, namely, Archibald M’Aulay, 16th Ardincaple. In 1718, Archibald and his son Aulay conveyed the three Ardincaples, under certain conditions of reversion, to John Campbell, the provost of Edinburgh, in security for a loan which they could not repay. This action was only taken after the consent of Archibald M’Aulay, merchant and bailie of Edinburgh, had been obtained. This was doubtless the same man who was provost of Edinburgh about 1700, whose relationship to the Macaulays of Ardincaple is unknown. There is no subsequent notice of this Laird of Ardincaple except the Confirmation of his Testament in the Commissariat of Edinburgh, 19th March 1729. Aulay M’Aulay, the 17th laird of Ardincaple, never married, and, when he had made his contribution to the ruin of the family, was succeeded by his brother, Walter M’Aulay, 18th laird of Ardincaple, who, with the consent of his son, Aulay, entered into an arrangement for clearing off the debt of the family by the sale of the remaining lands. Aulay M’Aulay, the 19th laird of Ardincaple, was compelled to take shelter in the property of Faselane, but soon he was forced to part even with that, the last of the once great estate, and to seek a humble retirement at Laggarie. There, in abject poverty, the last of the House of Ardincaple died in 1767, childless, landless, and friendless. »

The foregoing extract is offered as an example of the confusion that has arisen surrounding the families of Archibald M’Aulay, Laird of Ardincaple, and Archibald M’Aulay, Provost of Edinburgh.

The Edinburgh Marriage Register contains the following entry:
M’Aulay, Archibald, writer in S.E. p. ; Carola Young, d/o late Mr. Robert Y., sometime minister at Kippen, now in N.N.K. p. – 22 Jan. 1710, m 8 Feb. 1710

Archibald M’Aulay had several children by his wife Carola Young, according to the Register of Baptism for Edinburgh:
M’Aulay, Carola, bapt. 29 Nov. 1712; Archibald, bapt. 31 Aug. 1715; George, bapt. 23 Sep 1716; Jean, bapt. 7 Jan. 1718; Alexander, bapt. 30 Apr. 1719; Mary, bapt. 1 Jan. 1721; Anne, bapt. 5 May 1723.

The Fraser, William, W.S., in S.K. p. ; Miss Jean M’Aulay, d/o Archibald M., Lord Provost of Edinburgh, in N.W. p. £ 1. 1s. – 30 Oct 1748

The population of Edinburgh continued to grow as the eighteenth century drew to a close. Those who did not have the financial means to move to the New Town lingered in the wretched conditions of the medieval city. The New Town had afforded space, but only for those who could afford it. Consequently, the problems caused by high population density had not been adequately addressed by the New Town development, and, by 1800, the social problems of the Old Town had not disappeared. Accordingly, in 1801, the construction of a second New Town was begun. Robert Reid and William Sibbalt designed the plan which would be built to the north of the first New Town, and the first and second New Towns were separated by a garden belt, just as the New Town and Old Town had been.
