The Fenton Family

The Fenton contingent of Calum's and Jamie's ancestry dates to 18th Century Perthshire, Scotland. There is only one member of the Fenton family known about so far:

Jean Fenton
17?? - ????

Jean was Calum's and Jamie's seven times great grandmother.

It is not known when Jean was born. The strongest candidate is the Jean Fenton found to have been baptised in the adjacent parish of Muthill on 31 MAR 1710, as noted in that parish's episcopal church baptismal register - if so she was the daughter of John Fenton and Jean Buchanan:

Mar.31. Jean daughter to John Fenton and Jean Buchanan at Abercarney born March 29.

Another more remote possibility is that she is the Jean Fenton christened in Perth in 1725. If true, her father would have been Robert Fenton, and her mother Janet Coldstream, which certainly fits in with the fact that she called her daughter Janet.

Jean married John
Leich on 27th July 1739 in Trinity Gask, Perthshire, Scotland.

June 24 received from Jean Fenton 01 04 00
John Litch and Jean Fenton both in this parish proclaimed.

July 2nd the minr was at the Sacrament of Gask. John Litch and Jean Fenton proclaimed pro 2do (?)

July 8th...John Litch and Jean Fenton both in this parish proclaimed pro 3ho.

July 27 John Litch and Jean Fenton were married.
