About Rosehearty Ritchies/Thurso Millers
While currently my main interest are my Scottish ancestors, the MILLERs (also NICOL,  SWANSON, MURRAY, and CAMPBELL) of Thurso, Caithness, and the RITCHIEs (also ROBERTSON  of Peterhead and Old Deer, MURRAY, and possibly SUTHERLAND), of Rosehearty,  Pitsligo,  Aberdeenshire, and later New Zealand, there are many other families I have  an interest in. These include:

-STREET-various parts of greater London, including Buckhurst Hill, Loughton, and  Hammersmith.

-CRANWELL-of various parts of London, including Aldersgate, St George in the East,  Mile End, Bethnal Green, and Buckhurst Hill.

-BACON-of Woodford Green (London), Buckhurst Hill (London), Abbotts Roothing/Abbess  Roding, Great Canfield, High Roding, Aythorpe Roding, and Good Easter.

-SHEPHERD / SHEPHEARD / SHEPHARD - of Woodford Green (London), and Cheshunt,   Hertfordshire.

-CLAXTON- Hetfordshire, possibly Northaw.

-DEFROND / DEFRONDE / DE FROND / DE FRONDE / DEFRANITIES / DEFRANTIES / DEFRANTES /  DEPRANTER / DEFROUD / DEFROUDE - of London, including Romford, Lambourne, Ongar,  Holborn, St George Southwark, Stepney, and Hackney. These are some of the variants  I've come across, but DEFROND seems to be what it is these days.

I'd love to hear from anyone researching these families.

While I've done a great deal of research myself, over the years I've been given  information by other researchers, or come across bits and pieces on the internet. I'd  love to give everyone credit where credit is due, but unfortunately can't remember  the names of everyone who has helped me. Some I remember, such as Pat Robbie, and  Astrid Oram, who have beena  a great help on the Defrond/e side of things; Jocelyn  Kelly and Elma Dolstine of NZ gave me Ritchie information; Sue of Portsmouth  (Pompeyegirl on caithness.org forum) has tirelessly looked up articles in various  newspapers for Ritchie/Miller shipping references (and there are a gazillion of them,  thanks heaps!). I know there are a lot more, and when I go through my notes and find  them, I will add their names to this list.

I've set the privacy default to protect those still living, but have discovered that  if there is no birth and death date, it's assumed the person is still living, even if  it was the 1600s. So, I'm gradually going through the list and trying to give at  least approximate birth dates to fix this problem. These are very tentative though,  generally I will just take the birth date of the spouse if known, or if I know the  marriage date, or birth of the first child, I'll take twenty years away from that.

Also, during my research, I use the notes section of FTM to write random notes that  may not make sense to anyone to me. When I uploaded my gedcom, these were included. I  will eventually neaten the notes sections of each individual, but for now, sorry if  it makes no sense to you :-)
