So.......Alexander was brought up by his uncle Walter Chalmers and therefore ASSUMED that his mother's name was also Chalmers, because you would, wouldn't you, unless you were told any different.

Small problem...I can't connect Chalmers/Chambers/Elder. I have a few credits left on SP so off to see if I can spy Isabella Elder or Simpson in 41, 51 etc.

(It has to be said that Alexander Bonniman is unusually thick, even for one of MY ancestors. He can't make up his mind how old he is, where he was born, who his parents were and who his children were...he has a daughter Margaret who was born three years before his marriage, so possibly his wife's child, but no sign of her being born under either name. None of his children reflect any naming patterns, but nevertheless have fanciful names...)

I just had a quick look at SP, and I'm getting 2 hits for Chalmers-Elder marriages between 1820 and 1830. However, the Chalmers isn't Is* or Walter.

In 1851 there's an Isabel and John Simpson living in Grange, Banffshire. They have two children (John 8 and George 11 months), and Isabel's son William Brown, 10, is also living with them. Isabel is born in Grange c 1815.

In 1841, that Isobel's in Marnoch with a 6-month old boy "N Ve", presumably William Brown, and a load of other people, including an Isobel Elder aged 50.

I can follow Isabella through the censuses till 1891, and there's one death for an Is* Simpson, other names Elder, on SP between 1891 and 1897.
