Hello,

Iím here again asking for more help with Irish ancestors.

Iím in Scotland, so we have Alan Robinson born 1896 in cambusnethan, Lanarkshire although the family lived in Harthill.

His parents John Robinson and Catherine Simpson were married on the 8th if January 1891 in Dungarven, Ireland.

Iíve tried looking but canít find their marriage record.  Also, their oldest son William Simpson Robinson wasnít born in Scotland.  They also have lost a child but I canít see any record.

Johns death certificate only has a mother recorded, Martha Robinson. 
Is anyone able to help with this family, Iím very interested to learn more about them .

Thanks
Caroline


So how do you know??

Hi,
I got the birth certificate for Alan Robinson who was born in Scotland and thatís what it said for parents marriage details.

Iíve got a bit confused now. Have I made a mistake with where they were from?  Sorry,

Caroline

I hadnít realised Annie was Martha Ann, exciting to find them in Scotland.  Not too far from us 🙂

Antrim / John Chambers and Mary Easdale
« on: Saturday 14 April 18 13:57 BST (UK)  »
Hello,

I am looking for some help and advice please.
This is the first time I have looked at Irish genealogy.  I am Scottish and so I feel like I know what Iím doing with Scottish records but out of my depth with Irish ones!

I have been researching the family history of a friend who was adopted as a baby and know very little about her family apart from her mother and her grandparents names.

The family lived in Shotts in Scotland but all four of her great grandparents were from Ireland.

Iíve got a bit stuck.

This is what I know about one couple.

John Chambers marrried Mary Easdale on July 19th 1861 in Kirkinriola, Antrim (Clough).  I may not have spelled that correctly.

In 1851, according to the 1851 householders index John lived in Ballymoney, Antrim.

Their daughter Annie was born around 1866.

She married John Deans in Illinois in 1890,although they settled in Shotts.

Could anyone help me or show me where to look?

I have three other families to look for so it would be a big help.

Thanks
Caroline
