Armagh / Re: Ancient Ireland Ochiltree or MacUchtrie ?
« on: Thursday 19 April 18 02:57 BST (UK)  »
My Mum was a McAughtrie!!👍👍 She was born in Glasgow, and my Grandad was born in Ayrshire.  For years I've been trying to find out when my McAughtries first came to Scotland, but the earliest I have them is in Falkland, Fife, 1730, and then Wigtown 1764.  Below are my tree profile notes, as produced by Ancestry.

According to other trees on Ancestry, no one seems to have got back any further than the 1730 Falkland Fife Caughtrees!  (Plenty of name variations for McAughtrie around 😀 Too many, including mine, mostly with Christian names being either Thomas or William right through the McA families living in Ayrshire. It's been difficult sorting out which ones are part of my direct line, as all the brothers seem to follow the Scottish naming pattern! 


"William Coughtree was born in 1730 in Falkland, Fife. He had four sons and one daughter with Nicolas Sheveland between 1764 and 1776.

When Thomas Coughtree was born on 13 October 1764 in Wigtown, Wigtownshire, his father, William, was 34 and his mother, Nicolas, was 31. He married Isabella McTaggart on 14 October 1792 in his hometown. They had 11 children in 36 years. He died in 1863 in Girvan, Ayrshire, at the impressive age of 99".

I also have a reference to Renfrew


Robina McCubbin was born 1776, she married John McGaw, 29 October, 1799, in Renfrew, Renfrewshire. They had one child, Elizabeth McGaw.

When Elizabeth McGAW was born in 1803 in England, her father, John McGaw was 26, and her mother, Robina McCubbin was 27.  Elizabeth McGaw married William McAUGHTRIE on 24 April 1824 in Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland. They had 12 children in 22 years. She died on 23 February 1862 in Girvan, Ayrshire, at the age of 59.

Robina McCubbin was born 1776, she married John McGaw, 29 October, 1799, in Renfrew, Renfrewshire. They had one child, Elizabeth McGaw.

They don't make it easy for us, do they  ??? ??? ;D

I'm aware of that, and I do keep a check on it, I've moved away to a different area now and have a different service person who checks it out for me. 

I mostly just use an iPad now.

Technical Help / Re: internet
« on: Monday 16 April 18 03:56 BST (UK)  »
Things sometimes go crazy for no apparent reason, but can still be annoying!  Perhaps traffic overload (peak time) maybe?

I have XP as well.  A friend of mine, a whizz computer guru, who runs a very successful computer and electronic business, always recommends them highly says that XP is the best ever, and all of 10 his still staff use them, both in their office and their homes! From all the differerent computers that come into his shop for repairs or technical problems, XP is rarely brought in! Or if they are, it's usually a user thing, rather than an XP thing.

I agree with you about the people at West Derby Cemetery!  I got a lot of help when I visited there looking for my great grandmother's grave. I had found her burial record at the Sheffield library. 

After a good 1-1/2 or so hours of wandering around with no luck, I went to the Office.  The man in there took me straight to her grave, which was in the Anglican section.  Unfortunately, there was no headstone, and the grave was very sunken away.  I did get a bonus though, as her daughter, her daughter's husband, and their son were all in the same grave.

So keep at it, even if you can visit, or write to them or email them.  I tried to find an email address , but no luck with that, but you might be able to find an address from a Liverpool council website!

Hope you are able to find the grave you're looking for - nothing seems to be on Findagrave or Billion Graves websites!

The best way you can get their exact cause of death is to purchase their death certificates!

What Country and/or region are you speaking of when you ask about epidemics or bad weather events in 1851?
