Link to daughter's thread:

George probably died between the baptism of his daughter Isabella 2 Feb 1745 and the apprenticeship binding of his son Samuel 5 Apr 1753 where he is described as "late of St Olaves Southwark brewer". He is "deceased" on Samuel's freedom.

Of course the name Buie is always mistranscribed on everything!

That's an unusual surname, Kate. I thought it sounded French, but I googled and found it is Scottish, which figures.


Buie Name Meaning
Scottish: nickname from Gaelic buidhe ‘yellow’, ‘fair-haired’. See also Bowie.

Scotlands People have 8 matches for George Buie born between 1685 and 1710.

Yes, I've seen that before, Elizabeth, thanks.

The children I have listed for George and Elizabeth are:
Mary baptised 8 Jan 1732 St Olave, Southwark
Sarah baptised 9 Nov 1735 St Olave, Southwark
George baptised 7 Mar 1739 St Olave, Southwark
Samuel baptised 17 Oct 1742 St Olave, Southwark
Isabella baptised 2 Feb 1745 St Olave, Southwark

These are taken from FamilySearch because ancestry doesn't have PR or BT images for St Olave for that period. But I should think there are probably one or two children before Mary as George and Elizabeth got married in 1728.

But I've just found the baptism of an Elizabeth, born 23 Nov, baptised 29 Nov 1748 at St Mary Magdalene Bermondsey, daughter of George and Elizabeth Byer, victualler, Bermondsey Street. I wonder whether this is the same family?

Hmm, I had the burial of George Buie, infant, 6 Jun 1747 at St Saviour, Southwark, down as the one who was baptised 7 Mar 1739 (see post #6 above) but now I see there is a George, son of George Byer, a baker, and Elizabeth, baptised 14 Mar 1746 at St Saviour Southwark. So is this the same family, in which case the first George jr must have died before this one was baptised, and the Jun 1747 burial is the second George jr? Or are the Byers a different family from the Buies?

Edit: there is a George Byer, infant, buried 16 Apr 1746, also at St Saviour Southwark, so it looks as though they are a different family from the Buies.

Possibly a relative, found in the London Clandestine Marriage Registers:
10 May 1745
James Buie of St Giles in the Fields, Batchr, Brewer's Servant, and Jane / Jean Watt of St Olives Southwark spinster.

James Buie and Jean Watt had children baptised in Elgin, Morayshire, Scotland, named Margaret, Andrew and Jennet, so I think James is the one baptised 19 May 1719 in Elgin, son of Andrew Buie and Janet Anderson, but they don't seem to have had a son called George.
There is an Andrew Buie, maltman, listed in the wills and inventories on SP at Elgin in 1753, husband of a Margaret whose will is listed in 1767. They had a daughter Helen baptised in 1744. Now I'm wondering whether this Andrew is a son of Andrew and Janet whose baptism I haven't found, or is he the same Andrew with a second wife? I may end up buying more credits to view the will and find out, but the link with George is pretty tenuous at the moment.
Note to self: on ancestry's "extracted probate records" database, the Elgin Buies are listed as "Buie or Buy".

How did you find those, Elizabeth? I am only getting two between 1660 and 1713 with surname variants selected. And there aren't many on FamilySearch either.

I don't know if I can replicate the search, Kate - off to look!
