Patrick Grant 3

  • Christened: 2 May 1700, Cullen, Banff, Scotland 4
  • Marriage (1): Helen Ord on 17 Jun 1729 in Cullen & Rathven 1 2
  • Marriage (2): Helen Ogilvie circa 1720

  General Notes:

Another Patrick b to Ludovic 1709 and 2 Patrick marriages bearing children in Cullen from 1723 - are they both Patrick b1700 or is the Helen Ord marriage Patrick b 1705?

The 1723 and 1725 baptisms of children to Helen Ogilvie show Patrick as "merchant in Cullen" as does the 1729 marriage to Helen Ord. Ludovic' Patrick was born 1705 which would have him only 18 when the 1st Ogilvie child was born. And would the Earl of Seafield's Patrick be only a merchant in Cullen?

Based on this for now I will assume the 2 marriages of Patrick son of John b 1700.



Witness: Baptism of Hele, daughter of Robeert Innes and Ann Grant, 1725, Cullen, Banff, Scotland. 5 (Merchant in Cullen)

Witness: Baptism of Alexander, son of Alexnader Ord, 1728, Cullen, Banff, Scotland. 6

He worked as a Merchant in 1729 and resided at "in Cullen". 7


Patrick married Helen Ord, daughter of John Ord and Elizabeth Innes, on 17 Jun 1729 in Cullen & Rathven.1 2 (Helen Ord was born before 1715.)


Patrick next married Helen Ogilvie circa 1720. (Helen Ogilvie was born circa 1720 and died before 1729.)
