I discovered John Mien and his wife, Isabell Brown, through the birth record of their daughter, Agnes Mein (or Mien) in Newton in 1774. This led me to the record of John and Isabell's marriage in 1771. This line is giving me problems with the spelling of their surname - when I first discovered the line through Agnes, it was spelled 'Mein', but when I discovered Agnes's birth and John's identity, it was spelt 'Mien'. Later, as I found the records of John's children, they are all (except Agnes) recorded as 'Mein'.

KEY EVENTS AND DATES

17th May 1745

This uncertain, but this record is the only one of a John Mien or Mein, to be born anywhere close to Newton and in the correct time frame. Dalkeith is only 2 miles away from the parish of Newton and this birth date would have made John 25 at the time of his marriage, which seems a reasonable and likely age.


So, this John was born in the parish of Dalkeith and his parents' names were James Mein and Elizabeth Ewart.
