My 4th great grandmother Elizabeth Doig was born/baptised on 16 May 1790 at Monimail, Fife, Scotland and she married John Moore on 30 Nov 1817 at Cupar, Fife, Scotland. Her parents were Robert Doig and Janet Irvine Urquart and together they had 10 children with Elizabeth being their fourth. The second and third children were born at nearby Dunbog, the rest at Monimail.
Her birthplace is recorded in the Scotland Census a number of times:
- 1841: "Fife, Scotland ... abt 1801"
- 1851: "Monimail, fifeshire ... abt 1793"
- 1861: "Monimail, Fife ... abt 1791"
- 1871: "Balintuger, Fifeshire ... abt 1792"
It is the last of these that I wish to ask about because I have not been able to find the location recorded through Google or any other searches.
Where precisely is/was Balintuger? I suspect that it must be near Monimail (and/or Dunbog).
Interestingly, "Balintuger, Fifeshire" is what is recorded by Ancestry.com whereas FindMyPast simply records "Fife, Scotland". Unfortunately, I do not have an image of the record to examine.
Elizabeth died on 28 May 1878 at 25 Wilson's Place, Portobello, Edinburgh and her death certificate was witnessed by her son-in-law, James Stewart. She was also part of his household in 1871. I am confident that I am dealing with the same person in all four census records.
