  Marriage Notes:

"There were then several families of the name of Hacket, both in Eathcn and Fraserburgh ; and the only record I have seen of the schoolmaster's marriage (after searching the registers of Fraserburgh, Tyrie, Crimond, Strichen, and Eathen) occurs in the last mentioned register, where, under the date of 6th March, 1718, it is recorded that " George Hacket, schoolmaster at Eathen, and Jannet Adamson, daughter of Marion Crawford, in Rathen, were married, having been 3 several Lord's dayes publickly proclaimed in order thereunto."
