I am looking for information on my line.John(aka Orchar) married 08 Jul 1759 Agnes Ann Foreman b.27 Jan 1740
The family from that point to my gr.grandmother used
alais last names such as Orrfoot,Orphat,Orford,Urguhart,
Orphoot,Orphit etc...I found two records for every male
in the line,one with the real last name and one with the
alais.I was able to trace to this point because the wives
kept their real maiden names.The family were in India,
New Zealand,Austraila,Iraq,England,etc..before moving to
the USA.Only their son's line(Peter Urquhart b.20 Jan 1771)
kept the real last name..
