The first parish records of Glennies in Aberdeenshire are from the early 16th century. It is not until 1625 that clear links are established with our family, around the upper Don River in Towie and Strathdon. The following details have been traced:-

William Glennie (12.03.1719 - 17.02.1780) married Isobel Crookshank (1732 - 23.07.1769) on 27.10.1759 at Towie. This marriage was apparently recorded as well at Cabrach, a neighbouring Parish and possibility the home of Isobel's people, where William Glennie was married on 01.11.1759 to Isabel Cruickshank (Cruikshank)

William Glennie (Born 1625) m Elspeth Wobster (Born 1621). Who were the parents of:
Alexander Glennie (Born 1651) who married Christian Ronaldsone (Born 1652) on 15.10.1676. They were the parents of 6 children including:
John Glennie (16.12.1684 - 1780) married Grizel Dalgardno (04.05.1693 - 1752) on 13.07.1713 at St Nicholas, Aberdeenshire. Their children that we know of where:-
1. Christain (Born 24.05.1714)
2. Janet (Born 28.04.1716)
3. Margaret Glennie (Born 12.07.1718)
4. William Glennie (12.03.1719 - 17.02.1780) who married Isabel Cruickshank (1732 - 23.07.1769
Their children were:-
James Glennie (10.09.1760 - 1806) of Kinclean, Towie who married Agnes Murdoch (15.11.1772 - 1806) on 12.03.1793 in Towie.
The children of James Glennie and Agnes Murdoch were:-
John 19.01.1794 - 11.01.1880,
James 31.03.1796,
William 1799 - 30.08.1871
Mary (1803 - 1888) married Alexander Forbes (1803-1807) immigrated to Australia. Both died at Wollombi, NSW, Australia,
Glennie (17.11.1806 -14.03.1879) Anne never married)
William Glennie 20.05.1764 – 11.03.1826 who married Margaret at Towie on 23.08.1787
? Glennie (1st name not recorded ... Born 20.10.1766)

5/. John Glennie (16.06.1720 - 14.12.1801)
6/. James Glennie (Born 02.01.1723)


While it is as certain as we can be:
William Glennie (20.05.1764 – 11.3.1826) and christened 20.5.1764 would appear to be the William who married Margaret Walker (07.02.1765 – 22.02.1836) at Towie on 23.8.1787 and who was my great, great grandfather (Charles Alan Glennie). They are interred at the Kildrummy Church Graveyard.

Their children all born or christened at Towie were:-

James Glennie 28.9.1788 - 28.12.1809 Towie
Alexander Glennie, c. 20.11.1790, died 3.10.1859, Towie
Children:
Isobel Glennie (b. 06.12.1833 ~ illegitimate by Mary Farquharson)
William Glennie (10.2.1793 - 04.09.1874) Towie, farmer, died at Milltown of Edinglassie, Tarland. On 17.6.1847 he married Jane Glennie (1803 – 05.12.1876) at Strathdon, she being the daughter of William Glennie and Helen Gordon of Tillyduke. Jane died at Milltown of Edinglassie aged 73 years
Isobell Glennie 01.01.1795 – 03.10.1849, Towie

Charles Glennie born 09.7.1801, Towie
Gordon Glennie (12.8.1807 – 16.2.1889), Towie

Margaret Walker was the daughter of John Walker and Ann Cordoner in Kildrummy, christened 7.2.1765 at Towie. After the twins Peter and Charles in 1801 she apparently had no more children until Gordon was baptised in 1807 when she would have been aged 53. It seems likely that Gordon was adopted. After his marriage and before he finally settled at Strathdon, John Glennie must have spent a period at Kildrummy where his mother’s family were located, as his children John and Jean were buried there in the 1840’s.

John Glennie married Jane Bremner (17.04.1806 – 25.11.1862) at Strathdon, daughter of Garden Bremner (28.05.1758 – 15.01.1848), farmer and Janet Wattie (25.12.1780 – 18.11.1840).

Janet Wattie's family can be traced back to 1715 and beyond.
Her parents were:-
James Wattie 31.05.1755 - 04.01.1826
Helen McHardy 15.05.1757 - 22.04.1831.
Their children were:
Alexander Wattie 14.11.1777 - 14.01.1854,
Janet Wattie 25.12.1780 - 18.11.1840,
William Wattie 1782,
James Wattie 1784,
Helen Wattie 1786,
John Wattie 1788 - 17.03.1859,
Jonathon Wattie 1791 - 24.11.1864,
Jean Wattie 1795,
Charles Wattie 1796 - 1867
Ann Wattie 1799 - 1829.
Many of the Watties are interred in Strathdon.
