Need names of some old Farms c1857 in Cathcart, Renfrewshire RFW, Sct

Edie Mc
 

Hi,
Does anyone have a list or at least one  farm in Cathart, Renfrewshire area please. It ould  needed to be going back at least 1956.  I want to search in that area for our John McArthur born 1828 someplace in Scotland , but was living and working as a Farm Servant at Cathcart prior to his and Isabella Stevensons marriage that took place at Cambuslang, Lanarkshire 2 December 1856.  Their banns were read at Cathcart.  I would like to do a bit of research i that area.  Also a good reseachers name would be useful as well for that area please, in case I dont have any luck myself.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I’ve just joined the group and I’m wondering if anyone is researching the  THORBURN family.  I’m descended from Euphemia  THORBURN  who was born on a property called Deloraine in Ettrick, Selkirkshire abt. 1805. Her parents were William and Euphemia (nee ELLIOTT.

Re: More ROC SCT

Jocelyn, you have changed the existing subject line, which means that (because email programs look at headers not subject lines) it will be included in the same conversation thread as the email to which you have replied.  Always best to use a new email for a new subject.

I suggested that Chapman codes can be useful, but not in subject headings in this list.  I have no idea what ROC means and you have not even interpreted it in the body of the email.  Sure, I could go and look it up, but why would not use a term that everybody, including new users who are feeling their way and looking for help, will understand?

My great grandmother was Catherine MORE b 29 Jul 1833 at Arkendeith near Avoch ROC (in the Black Isle which is neither an island nor black) to father Alexander MORE (1774-1860) and his second wife Catharine MUSTARD (1787-1867).  His first wife was Isabel MORE (maiden name) and they had seven children all born in the Black Isle in ROC between 1799 and 1812. 

Looking for descendants from either wife.

Re: New emails [was Subject headings]

Lindsay Graham
 

Sue, you simply create a new email (not sure of the exact way to do that in the Gmail web interface, but it should be pretty obvious).  Address that email to Scots@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io -- as long as you send it from the email address that you used to subscribe to the group, that should go straight to the group.

Good luck.

Re: MCCOLMAN, CAMPBELL, BELL, GRAHAM

Dee Byster-Graham
 

Hi Patrick and Listers,

 

I do agree with you, surnames were remarkably fluid pre 1800’s. Only in recent times with our education systems stabilised do we find surname conformity.

Also different country accents were difficult for recorders (generally English esp in Ireland) to understand and record correctly.

MOIR/MUIR/MOOR /MORE etc  are an ideal demonstration of this problem.

 

Kindly,

Dee

Not to confuse matters, although admittedly I probably am, but we've got Muirs in our background also, but can find no link between them and those being discussed here.
This is the limited information I have:

Nothing much back beyond William Moir (1818-1861)/Catherine Woodward (1828-1896) except his parents were likely William and Mary Moir.   No direct evidence back beyond that.  Also no direct evidence of any surname spelled More or Muir other than the belief that all of them stem from the same gene pool farther back.     Our clan likely came from Aberdeenshire.   



The 1861 London Ontario census shows Margaret and William Moir and three kids (James 1819; Alexander 1824; and William 1818) living in the same neighborhood as the Woodwards and the Dwyers (all eventually intermarried).  St. Peter's Basilica Parish records there show our Moirs were married in 1850 and had child #1 (Isabella) in 1851.   



Have not yet found the precise emigration year or the vessel on which they sailed but it's narrowed to 1848-49.   And, William and three of the six kids all died in the 1861 influenza epidemic (December). 



Catherine remarried in Detroit in 1863 to Patrick Keating and they and the three surviving Moir kids (Isabella 1851, Daniel 1854, and William1856) moved up to Ovid in that time frame.



BTW, twins tend to run in the gene pool.   William was a twin (1818), his son Daniel had a twin John (1854), and his daughter Helen Neva Moore Newman (1897) was a twin (Hazel Eva 1897).

Re: MOIR

Goldie & Lido Doratti
 

Finding Patrick's thread interesting.  I have record of a James Innes married to Isobel MOIR 11 Nov. 1797, Huntly AB.  The parish of Forgue AB has MOIR families there.  Over the years I have seen this name spelled various ways including MOIR, MAIR, MORE, MOR.  I suspect Isobel's father to be Alexander Moir or MAIR from Forgue.  No proof.  The couple settled in Oriquhill, Banffshire.  Goldie

Thank you so much, Trish, I shall amend my tree accordingly.

 

Obviously my info from years ago was incorrect. Very much appreciate your help, as I left searching the Scottish side of our family several years ago to concentrate on the Irish line.

Infinitely harder there, and became so involved I have only yesterday became interested again in my Mitchell etc line.

Interesting address quoted – 7 Barony Place (from memory) is the  house the Mitchell’s lived in!

I do have a private Tree on Ancestry, probably not all correct, put together in haste, but better than loose paper J

My G-G Grandfather was James MITCHELL b. 1812 Clackmannonshire – he is as far back as I can go to date. Grandad was Alexander Mather Mitchell last child to be born in Glasgow before the family immigrated to Oz.

An amazing man, hugely musical could play any instrument he happened to pick up. A coppersmith by trade, also cooper, made stained glass windows, blacksmith, farmer – he excelled at everything.

Hi Tricia, and other MORE searchers,

 

Hoping you can assist me further re More:

Many years ago a researcher sent to me the names of the parents of Andrew MORE 1812-1889 as:

James More and Christina Cameron, neither with B/D dates.

No Cruickshank named in the document at all.

 

Would really appreciate your thoughts on this, could it be a different married couple entirely or did my researcher have the name wrong?

Grateful thanks in advance, as this is my stumbling block.

Kindly,

Dee.

A question/suggestion:  would those responding through my post where I am specifically seeking my McColman, Campbell, Bell and Graham ancestors not be better initiating a post with a subject line of their kin's names? - not tagging onto mine.  I'm a novice but I was able to draft my own search subject line.  I get excited when I see that someone is responding to my post - me thinking they are seeking my ancestors too - only to find that they are not - they are seeking completely different Scottish ancestors.


Thank you Dee for your response regarding Scottish naming patterns.  Family names repeated from generation to generation certainly keep us on our toes!  Best of luck to you too in your research of the ancestors!

It is hard work to dig out the information for a list post. So let's all take the extra moment to think about whether or not replying is the best way to ensure that your work makes some impact. 

If you write a new post, then create a descriptive subject line with names, dates and places.

If you are replying and have something to add to the subject line, then edit the subject before sending. And please quote only what is needed to make your reply understandable. 

Yes, it takes a minute or two longer sometimes, but it is so worth getting into the habit.

I don't know if we have direct links but some of the names and locations that you mention crop up in my family too.  My great grandmother Margaret McLugash, born c.1852, was raised at Lenanbuie, probably by her grandparents Donald McLugash and Catherine Carmichael.  Her father was John McLugash and her mother was Margaret Campbell of Mulindry.  I do not think John and Margaret married, and I think they probably met when John was employed at Mulindry.  Margaret Campbell's parents were John Campbell (born c.1780) and Christy Carmichael (born c.1786).  My McLugashes seem to have moved around within a very small area at Gartachossan, Lenanbuie and Starchmill, only a mile or so from Mulindry, so it is not too surprising that there appear to have been a number of liaisons/marriages between McLugashes and Campbells in that area.

Regards

John

Greetings to everyone.  It's nice to see that the Islay site is still as vibrant as ever.  My thanks to all of the people involved in setting up the new site.

I have been researching for over 20 years but still have some brick walls.  I'm looking for any info on the following:

John McLugash married to Agnes (Ann) Campbell 13 March 1786.  I have no info on Agnes other than this date.  My family follows the McLugash (all spellings) line.

Son Alexander died  Mulindry.  He married Mary McNeill from Kilmeny  1814.  Her parents were Archibald McNeill and Catherine Kelly.  I'm looking for any info on her.

Other research interests are: Caskie Portnahaven/Kilchoman/Canada Paisley; Mitchell Portnahaven/Kilchoman Canada Greenock

Good Hunting everyone
