Re: Bridson History
In Response To: Re: Bridson History ()

Hi David
I regret that I have no data on Bridson links with Scotland but others in the IOM Family History Society may be more helpful about where to look. Some comments, rather negative I fear, on your posting:
 Bridson is a common name in the IOM, particularly in KK Malew and neighbouring parishes, and there are many lines.
 Any dates from IGI like ‘abt 1576’ are just guesses not only as to date but to the very existence of a named individual.
 Variation is spelling was common and is not significant although certainly unhelpful to the searcher.
Happy hunting. Michael Bridson.
