Euphan Blaikie

ID# 5217, (c 1765 - 3 Jul 1845)

Euphan Blaikie was born c 1765 at Midlothian, Scotland ,

According to Euphemia's burial record she was aged 81 when she died. I feel this may be incorrect or I have the wrong person.

There are births of Euphan Blaikie on the 29 Dec 1781, Liberton, Midlothian to parents George Blaikie & Anne Clarke.
There is also an entry for a Euphan Blaikie born 18 Feb 1775, South Leith, Midlothian to parents Henry Blaikie & Katarine Ross.

More research would need to be done to confirm any of the above details.
The parent George and Anne, make good sense due to first child being called George, but this would make Euphan only 14 when she married William Davidson.

Euphan Blaikie married William Davidson on 18 Dec 1795 at Cranstoun, Midlothian, Scotland ,

William Davidson and Euphan Blaikie both in this Parish entered their names in order for proclamation for Marriage.1,2
