Where to find the record of a Birth in 1767 on the Spanish Peninsula
My 4x gt grandmother Rachel Fisher is shown in some family trees as being "born in 1767 on the Spanish Peninsula" with her father puportedly being John Fisher (Campell) - it would appear that he changed his name from Campbell to Fisher - with various names being given for her mother depending on which tree one looks at.
If this was the case it would probably have been because her father was a soldier and taken his wife on campaign with him, (1767 was after the 7 years war which ended in 1763 and too early for the Spanish civil war), or, perhaps the family were refugees after the battle of Culloden.
Does anyone have any idea where or indeed if it is possible to find the birth records from 1767 of a foreign national somewhere on the Spanish Peninsula?
I have written to the person with the most 'informative' family tree in Ancestry but have not received any response.
If this is a false trail I'd like to be able to waste no more time on it!
Scotland's People do not have records of people born outside Scotland.
I have also yet to find a record of Rachel's death in 1837 - or that of her husband my 4x Gt Grandfather David Tod who died 1817. As far as I can ascertain they were both members of the Episcopal Church in Kennoway, Fife, Scotland as my 3x Gt grandfather, David Carstairs Tod, born 19 Jan 1809, was baptised on 9 March 1809 by Rev William Nicol of the Episcopal Church in Kennoway, Fife.
Any help in overcoming this 'brick wall' for Rachel Fisher would be gratefully received!
