Tod Addie /Eadie- Kinross Dunfermline Hulltown?

Dear Kinross& Addie Researchers,
Hi I am looking for any info with regard to these families.
William Tod or Addie or Eadie was born in abt 1823.

His parents on his death cert were down as George Eadie and Mary Hogg- unable to find marriage & birth as of yet.

William Tod married Mary Russell 1852 Airdrie they had six children- George, Mary, Margaret, Henry,James& Andrew all born Tods or Todd or even Tode.

A revelation took place between 1866&1871 the family name changed to Addie, by 1880 Eadie, by 1881 Todd, by 1884&6 Eadie, by 1891 Eadie.
The only reference I could find to the Addie or Eadie was a Margaret Adie md to George Tod then a Janet Adie md to William Tod- they went on to have a William Tod in 1823 bn in Kinross.
All of the above is just related information to the name change, I was wondering if anyone has the above Adies' in their family as we think that William was born to one of the Addies and was bought up by a Tod family and later found out his mothers maiden name was Addie and decided to use it as the whole family of children took on this name of Addie & Eadie.However this is just a theory.
I am hoping that someone out there may have some answers or a connection.

Thanks for your time and consideration

I am researching BROWN/DITCHBURN/TRAIL/EADIE/ADDIE of Dunfermline. I have Jean Eadie/Addie marrying David Ditchburn 4/24/1854 in Dunfermline but have not been able to locate information on Jean. David was born in 1831 in Dunfermline so Jean was born sometime around then. Have you found either of these names in your search?

Hi I am sorry I hadn't replied to one of your earlier postings.

I have a little more info to go on now then whats in the last email you replied to-

I have the 1841 census which shows us that our William (Tod) Addie/ Eadie was living with as son- George Tod and Margaret Adie in Dunfermline, it shows he was born in Dunfermline. His parents - George bn in Muckart or Muthill, Perthshire and Margaret Adie his mother born in Kinross, so I think there is a connection with a Janet Adie also born in Kinross and md to a William Tod poss her sister- maybe even a set of sisters marrying a set of brothers and one stayed in the Kinross area and the others moved to Dunfermline. I think I may have the parents of the girls though I still have to do more research.

I am afraid I have no info on a Jean Adie/Addie at the moment- though I am hoping to do a one name sort of study on all of the Adies in Kinross and also in Dunfermline also the Tods from Perth.

At the moment I have family staying so will not be able to do much research.

However I will keep your info on file and definitely get back to you if I find any connections. Thanks for both of your replies

Hoping that you are still interested in this. I have reason to believe that your Jean Eadie ( Adie etc. ) was the daughter of Marion Niven & Thomas Eadie ( Addie ) This Jean was b. c. 1834 and she married a David Ditchburn. I'm sorry that I only have scanty info on them but would like to hear from you on my personal email please. Thanks
