ldspence on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
Patrik Spence, born circa 1610 in Linlithgow, Scotland was married to Jannet Whyt. They had three children: William born abt 23 Aug 1629; Elizabeth born abt 29 June 1633; Edward Spence born 9 Nov 1634. Thus began a lineage to the present in the United States. Included in my family tree are more than 7000 names, most related to Patrik Spence.
I have traced my roots to Linlithgow, Scotland circa 1610, but have hit the "wall". My Patrik Spence married Jannet Whyt and he fathered William, Elizabeth, and Edward.
Spence has an interesting history in Scotland. Through the help of others, I have learned that the occupations of the Spences in Scotland evolved from Boot cobblers to chemists to pharmacists. I am told that there is a pharmacy in Edinburgh today bearing the Spence name. Some of the Spences immigrated into the US and others to Australia and New Zealand.
Any help is appreciated.
I am a descendant of Patrik Spence, born Circa 1610, Scotland. Any matches out there?
