Thanks Pat will keep going back again and again to it

Best to be careful, but he's the only William Shaw of that age in those censuses. I wish you luck!

Hi Pat, the birth is correct and I have him in my tree on Ancestry If I do a search then I cannot get a match as most just have given Scotland as birth place though I did find one for 1851 that gave birth as Fort George which is 13 miles north of inverness so I have my doubts on that one. I will try Scotlands People for a marriage around 1833 for him to a Margaret and see what transpires.

Ancestry shows a William Shaw born 3 Nov 1811 to Donald Shaw and Mary Noble. It also shows a William Shaw (abt 1810), wife Margaret (abt 1810), with chilldren John (abt 1833), James (abt 1836), Jane (abt 1838), Robert (abt 1840), William (abt 1843), Margaret (abt 1845), George (abt 1847) and Agnes (abt 1849). They appear in the censuses of 1841, 51, 61 and 71. They were in Polmont Sterlingshire, among other places. Could that be your William?

I am searching for any information on a Mary Noble from Dores Scotland between 1811 and 1814 when her two sons were born to her and Donald Shaw. Have absolutely no information on her, I have searched Scotlands People site but can only presume the marriage was not officially recorded. Her son Alexander married and came to Australia in 1848 but have never been able to track other son William born 1811 either.

My Noble interest relates to James N who came to Geelong/Australia in 1830.   His home village was Newtownstewart in Nth Ireland.    Happy to share the Australian history & appreciate of any Irish data.

Recently read that at one time in Ireland, births had to be registered within a certian time or there was a fine.  ...   so people would fudge the birth date..? might explain why BC dates do not always match later documents where a person might list their actual birth date..?

I just heard from a 67-match named John Noble in Australia, and I invited him to join the group. His ancestor was born near Irvinestown, Fermanagh in 1820.

to: Ron Oakley,

sorry typo, should have typed:

* note his spellings of McCutcheon  vs. Mccutchen ..? 

Comment by James Thomas Noble on September 15, 2013 at 9:04pm

There is a marriage recorded at St. Mary's Ardess (Kesh, Fermanagh) between John Noble of Dromore Big and Rose McGolrick of Drumgregnahan in November 1842. My John Noble was born in 1847 or 1848, his mother's name was Rose, and he came to America alone in 1853. I do not know if this John Noble-Rose McGolrick couple are my ancestor's parents, but it seems a good bet. Anyone have any further information?
