Thank you so much, Tricia!

So kind of you to send me g-g-grandfather’s parents – my 3GG’s!

And yet another ‘James’ to add – I must be truly blessed J That given name is in  our Mitchell family a gazillion times.

Have you any idea from where in Scotland the surname More originated, by any chance?

Hi Dee.

Andrew More b 1812 was son of James More and Elizabeth Cruickshank. 


Born 14 apr 1812 baptised 19th apr 1712 Glasgow Gorbals  .  


I see your line : andrew more and mary bulloch's daughter  Mary More married 1874 Alex Mitchell.  They are in the 1881 census in scotland with 4 children.   Then to Australia as you said.

Hello from Dee,


Searching the families related to:

ANDREW MORE                                                                                         F:                                                                               M:

Born:  14 May 1812               Glasgow, Gorbals, Lanarkshire.

Death:  31 August 1889        Glasgow, Shettleston, Lanarkshire


MARY BULLOCH MORE                                                                           F:  JOHN BULLOCH  1765-1861                                 M: CATHARINE McFIE  1781-1841

Born: 1820

Death:  1880                         Glasgow, Shettleston, Lanarkshire.

So far I am unable to go further back with Andrew's parentage, however have a couple of generations at the back of Catharine.

A Daughter of this union married my great-grandfather ALEXANDER MATHER MITCHELL, prior to their immigration to Australia in 1880.

Thank you so much.
