Unallocated Edney Records

This page lists entries for Edney (or Ednie) in the Scottish records, but the connection to this Edney family is not yet clear. If you have any information on these people, it would be good to either place them properly in the tree or remove them from this site.

In Ferry Port on Craig, Fife, the following entires are listed:

Agnes EDNIE married George MILN on 6 May 1757.

Mary EDNEY married David MARTIN on 19 Nov 1762.
There is also a marriage recorded 19 Nov 1762 between Mary Edney and David MARTINE, recorded in Forgan, Fife. It may be that both entries relate to banns (notice) of marriages rather than actual marriage, explaining the double entry. It might also suggest that Mary was from Forgan and David from Ferry Port on Craig.

William EDNIE married Mary CROCKAT on 27 Sep 1782.
William EDNIE may have re-married after Janet Robertson died?

Hellen EDNIE married James BERRIE on 14 Jan 1830.
This Helen could be the daughter (born 1806) of Robert EDNIE Edney and Mary BROWN, however in the 1841 census Helen is listed as living with her parents and with the name EDNIE.
It could also be Helen (born 1812) of David EDNEY and Janet Robertson, although the family at that time lived in Edinburgh or Dundee.
