Surnames: Whyte, White, Kidd
The information I have is of Christiana Whyte (or White) born to Lord Whyte (or White) in 1781 in Linlithgow. Married Alexander Kidd (form Bo'ness)1804 and immigrated to Canada in 1815.
Does anyone know more about this family or living relatives in Scotland?

I have a line of Alexander Kidd's in my ancestry from the Bo'ness area. I have one Alexander Kidd born Mar 15, 1774 in Carriden, Scotland. I don't have any marriage information for him. Do you have a birth date for your Alexander?

My Kidd line moved to Canada about 1912. Look forward to hearing from you!

Surnames: WHITE/WHYTE, KIDD
Christiana White b. 1781 in Linlithgow, Scotland who married Alexander Kidd b. 1780 in Bo'ness, Scotland are listed on www.shipslist.com as members of the Edinburgh Settlers 1815. He is listed as a cartwright aged 34 who resided in Blackburn (Kilmarnock). They were passengers on the transport Baltic Merchant with 7 children (4 sons and 3 duaghters. They are my husband's maternal ancestors. I too would like any information on Lord White and family of the Kidd family in Scotland.

No sorry I don't.
If I had to guess it would be Alexander, James, Walter or John as those are his son's names. There is also a Jessie listed as male, may be female.

No I don't. I am trying to find out who the parents of each of them are but have run into a dead end at present. I did discover at the National Archives of Scotland that there was no record of a Lord White/Whyte in the Edinburgh/Linlithgow/Bo'Ness area. But family tales that Christiana was daughter of the Lord of the manor may be circumspect.
