No problem, and no apology necessary! Good luck with your research.

Hello, and welcome to the forum. I'm one of the moderators on the site but am afraid you wouldn't find much information about JMB's ancestry here, as it mainly concerns his works and his relationship with the Llewelyn Davies. You might be more successful if you contacted the Kirriemuir Heritage Trust (or even the Moat Brae Trust) as they might have more information and contacts about the family, and point you in the right direction.

http://www.kirriemuirheritage.org.uk
http://www.peterpanmoatbrae.org

Over the years, there have been other people researching their family ancestry and links with the Barries, so if you scroll down the "J M Barrie" sub-section in the forum, you can read posts and questions about his genealogy, and possibly contact them via their emails.

I hope this helps. If I think of other sources, I'll post an update.

Hi again

Does anyone know if any of JM Barrie's ancestors had earlier used the surname of Barr?

Many thanks

Hi

I was thrilled to find this new forum. Like many people, I am trying to find whether there any links between JM Barrie and my family. I have some research on my family tree that goes back to the early 1700s, but with so many similar names the task of finding a correlation is somewhat complicated, to say the least.

Can someone please confirm whether the following information about Barries in Kirriemuir is accurate and/or where the anomalies lie in my research:

JM Barrie's Grandfather: Alexander (b around 1783/6) - did he marry May/Mary, Marjory, Margret or Catherine?
Grandfather's siblings: James, George, Andrew, William? Anyone else?
Sibling marriages (if the siblings list is accurate):
- did James marry Jean Bryson or Secilia?
- did George marry Catherine Richardson?
- did Andrew marry Elspet?
- did William marry Mary or Margaret?

Other connections: Was there a connection to a David (1787) and Jane (1787)?

Any suggestions/comments will be very much appreciated.

Cheers and many thanks

Hello,

Many thanks, indeed! We are looking forward to staging this production, after having done The Admirable Crichton a few years ago!

Thank you for the suggestion, I will look into that.

All the best,

Hello Stephen.  I'm one of the moderators on this page, so welcome to this forum.

Great news that Mary Rose is being stage at Pitlochry Festival Theatre - it's a wonderful and very moving play.

You may be interested to know that a JM Barrie Literary Society has been founded and will be launched on the 9th of May. Have a look at their website (http://www.jmbarriesociety.co.uk) and their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=jmbarrie%20literary%20society - you could post something on their page to promote your production?

Wishing you every success with your production!

JMBarrie / New J M Barrie Literary Society
« Last post by Brutus on May 06, 2017, 09:07:16 AM »
A literary society dedicated to J M Barrie has been founded and will be launched officially on 9th of May, which is of course his birthday. See http://www.jmbarriesociety.co.uk for more details.

Until now, there was no real Barrie Society so it's wonderful news. We hope many members will join and get involved, and that the society will flourish, both in the UK and internationally.

Follow it on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=jmbarrie%20literary%20society

Hello all,

Thank you for accepting me into your community here. It's been a while since I've used a forum!

I thought I'd let you know that J.M. Barrie's MARY ROSE is being staged at Pitlochry Festival Theatre as part of our Summer Season of six plays. For anyone unfamiliar with our Theatre, we operate a rep model, so the 8 actors in MARY ROSE also appear in our other plays, which rotate every single day (!).

To book tickets for the show, visit: http://bit.ly/mary-rose-PFT

Or alternatively, you can call Box Office on 01796 484 626.

If you have any questions at all about the show, the Theatre or our programme, please fire away!

Best wishes,
Stephen
