Davidson/Nisbet

I have Thomas Davidson , who married Mary Nisbet c 1766. All of their 8 children were born in South Leith between 1768 and 1782.I Would like to find out where and when Thomas Davidson and Mary Nisbet were born and would it be possible to find their parents from that far back.
Appreciate help , thank you.

Marriage Date: 13 Sep 1686
Marriage Place: Birsay,Orkney,Scotland
Spouse: Mary Nisbet
FHL Film Number: 919497

Hi Amanda,
Thank you for your reply.
I think that marriage as a bit early, but thanks for your help.

Re: Davidson/Nisbet

I have NISBET from Crieff in my tree and in the records I have found so far it's about 50/50 Nisbet/Nesbit.

Re: Davidson/Nisbet

You have some interesting names in the children. George Lauder and Cecil and Gray which would all prob be named after relatives.

I did find a Thomas born or baptised 25/1/1741 to Thomas Davidson and Cecil Selkirk in Wemyss, Fife who is a distinct possibility but could find no other children to this couple. Thomas jnr was a sailor so could have married anywhere and Wemyss is on the coast in Fife.

I would expect Thomas' father to be Thomas as the first son was Thomas. But there is a gap between John and Cecil where a child could be missing.

You are quite early though so proving anything is difficult.

There is also a will on Scotlandspeople for a Thomas, shipmaster in Leith
DAVIDSON THOMAS 01/06/1787 SHIPMASTER IN LEITH

I don't know if this is a possible and might be worth downloading?

Re: Davidson/Nisbet

Thank you both for your helpful replies, they certainly give me plenty to work on but I agree with it being so far back it will be hard to prove things.
perhaps I should just sit back and be happy that I have so many Scottish ancestors.
I appreciate your help.
