I'm the family genealogy compiler. James MUIRE arrived from Scotland, to Virginia in 1691. We have nearly all of our line complete since that time. The Muire Clan place their roots at Rowallan Castle, Kilmarnock, which my wife and I visited in 09.
And, our family is HENDERSON from Ardnamurchan and Mull. Is it easy to start a HENDERSON group or sub-group? Is it better to post on the general Socttish site rather than create a sub-category?
Im hoping you might be able to help. I researched a whole Wilkinson family after being told that my husbands family all came from Oldham and I managed to find a family on the census returns that fitted in perfectly. Anyway it now turns out that they came from Huddersfield. My husbands great great grandad John Wilkinson was born in 1871(from census) in Huddersfield, married Clara Marsden and had Harry in 1893 before moving to Blackpool where they had Gladys and Cyril before moving to Oldham. I dont suppose you have come across this family? There are a few John Wilkinsons in the Huddersfield area in 1891and I dont want to pick up the wrong family again!
Kirsty, Though the name I'm researching appears predominately in southern England there is evidence that there are Curds in Scotland some of whom moved to Ireland. There are also a variety of surname related to Curd such as Mc Curdy. My aim is to test by Ydna to see if all these Bute men are related but I have to find them first. Please could you add my CURD group to the Scottish Ancestry group. Thanks
HI Kirsty, I am looking for info on James Whiteford,born Renfrew, 1823 and emmigrated with wife Jane and 3 children on the Shakamaxon to Adelaide,South Australia on the 11 October 1852.I am interested in his parents and his wife's details as well. Regards..John Whiteford..email@example.com
I went back to Scotland People and went through all of the Paterson again. I took all of the Paterson (soundex too) from 1660 to 1700.
Did not find a link through that. The only Andrew close to 1659 was in 1658 and son of Andro and Margret Durie. It was the same information I already had. I will do a time line with my info but I do not think it will help. I also, tried surname navigator but I had problems entering the site for some reason.
I have checked out all that I can find and I am still at a loss. Is there anything or anywhere that would be suggested or that you can help with to find the parents of Andrew Paterson born in 1659 of Hamilton, Lanark, Scotland? It has been suggested that his father be Charles for that is the name of his first son.
Are you able to help with locating a father for Andrew?
Thank you, Ezziej
I would like to add Abercrombie and McMichael to the surname list.
Robert Abercrombie came from Banff. Scotland his Father James 2nd Baronet-Birkenbog, Banffshire, Scotland, back to Birkenbog & Ley.
The McMichaels-I need to know more about.
Thanks for the time and trouble Kristy. I read each book and also the Justicary Book. Found some Paterson's but not Andrew of Hamilton, Lanarkshire. Somewhere there has to be something on coventers of 1685 that would give me a clue of who his parents are. Born 1658/1659.
My ARCHIBALD family comes from Glass between Huntly Aberdeenshire and Dufftown Banffshire circa 1630.My research has extended to the ARCHIBALD families from North and North East Scotland with some knowledge re the families from Central and Southern Scotland.Many have moved on to the New World and Australasia
Please add my ARCHIBALD group to your list
My great great grand father left Shetland Islands and migrated to New Brunswick Canada. I was born in Maine USA and now live in South Florida. I started a family tree on My Heritage and now have over a 1000 names. I know that all information especially dates might not be accurate but 99.5 % of the names are. I would love to trade information and help anyone that can also help me. Mostly searching more ancestors of the islands though. here is my website address: http://www.myheritage.com/site-35391462/the-henry-clan-via-scotlandcanadamaine-etc
Thanks for the birthday greeting! Was a wonderful day with the family, good Scottish food at the nearest pub (for us that's a 30 minute drive) - a real treat! And absolutely no complaining about the food from my Italian husband - miraculous!
