|Looking for any information on the following:
James Robb & Janet Stewart married July 16, 1815 in the Parish of Kettins, County of Angus (Forfar) Scotland.
Daniel Robb was born July 7, 1824 Parish of Kettins, County of Angus (Forfar) Scotland.
Charles Robb June 24, 1826, Inchture, Perth. Died in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand.
Spouse was Elizabeth Taylor of Patrick, Lanark, Scotland.
Janet Robb born August 15, 1831, Inchture, Perth, and Married William B. Patterson April 25, 1851 in inchture, Perth. She died May 30, 1910 in Dunoon, Argyleshire, Scotland.
Daniel moved to Singapore about 1853. I can't locate whether he married in Scotland or Singapore.
In a newsaper article from the Singapore Straits it mentions that he was a millwright and a native of Dundee, Scotland and was partners with a Mr. Buyers. They built 2 ships in 1863 and 1864.
Daniel married Elizabeth Millar and had James Robb in 1864 then a second wife (no clues to her name) and about 1867 had Charles Robb.
Charles may have been born back in Scotland and I believe he may lived in Keith. I may have the wedding photo of his mother when they lived in Singapore (no name or date on photo).
James Robb came back from Singapore and married Mary Elizabeth Evans in Barry Dock, Wales. He died there in
Marriage and birth records from Singapore from the 1850's to 1900 is almost impossible to find.
Daniel Robb died in Singapore in 1887 and his wife still lived there in 1907 (from a postcard addressed to Mrs. Daniel Robb, Devonshire Road).
If anyone has any information on this family or the children I'd love to hear from you.
