Wiston & Roberton!


Did I spell it wrong? Sorry if I did!

Which records state that William Stewart died in Australia?  If it is just a tree on Ancestry then beware as these trees are not particularly accurate.  People just seem to pluck any info that suits them and put it together on one tree without verifying anything.

I can't find any records that suggested that he died in Australia. So I think you're right about other trees and people plucking info from thin air.. I wanted to check if there's any other avenues that I didn't explore. I've looked on Scotland's People, Find my Past, Ancestry... Anything else?

Lanarkshire / Jean Ramsay and William Stewart
« on: Tuesday 20 February 18 23:36 GMT (UK)  »

I'm researching my family tree, especially the Stewart Branch. I've traced back to my 3x Great Grandfather who was called John Stewart and he was born in Culter in 1814 to a William Stewart and Jean Ramsay.

However, I've done some research on William and I'm unsure if I'm actually looking for the correct William. I focused on a William Stewart born in 1792 and it led to William Stewart Snr and a Cecilia Wishart but the records states that William Stewart died in Australia... Which is why I'm unsure I got the right person. In addition, I cannot seem to find anything on Jean either.

I do know they got married in Winston and Robertson in 1813 and had John a year later, followed by a daughter, Cecilia in 1817.

Any advice on what else I can use to find more info on them?

Millmoor- THANK YOU for this.

You've uncovered another skeleton in my family cupboard.... seems Janet has a thing for Stewart men. haha.

Can you tell me how to access RCE? I'm always learning about different sources for Scottish ancestry so the more, the better! Particular for the records pre 1850 as I've found more family members from 1700s and before, but no records has been found. So I would love to find out if there is another online source where I can find a copy of records from that time?

HI, "PARKHOUSE" is an actual place consisting of 2 houses. Most of my ancestors "Kirkpatrick - Johnstone - Clark - all lived and died there. My Great grandfather "Thomas Kirkpatrick - His father John Kirkpatrick - right back to 1700s were all working blacksmiths at the actual house. There are also photographs available vis the Dumfries library- I also have taken personal pictures and spoken to the people who now live ther. I hope this is some help.

This is quite interesting. It's amazing to think that some places/buildings that still stands to this day, has so much history. I might go to the Dumfries Library to find out more. I'd never heard of Tyrnon either!


@Gadget- I have had a look at the map and I was busy lately, which is why I hadn't replied. I love looking at old maps especially of the local areas, just to get an idea of what towns were like hundred of years ago. Thanks for the link

Hi All,

Sorry I didn't reply asap.

Your help has been tremendous as I've managed to uncover some family members. If it wasn't for your advice and a gentle nudge of direction, I would have been stuck.

It's a shame that Irish ancestry can be difficult as there is so much history in Ireland and it would have been amazing for everyone to find out what part their ancestors played in Irish's history.

Thank you again.

Most of the baptism registers for all of Sneddon kids had no mention of sponsors so I'm not sure...

Here is an example of a register for Dinah Sneddon.

That's strange. I looked at Janet Sneddon and her Husband James Stewart family and there is no record of a Margaret Stewart being one of their children.... That's new!

I've tried to attach couple copies of the baptism records for some of the Sneddon kids but they're too big to upload so I'll have to try to edit them tomorrow.

Is there usually some additional information on these kinds of records?

I did pay for them but the info is vague. I'll post some on here and see what you think.

It also never has occurred to me that George Jr was a surprise baby! Don't know if I feel sorry for poor Agnes or not!
