Stirlingshire / Re: Whereabouts of farm
« on: Friday 05 October 18 19:39 BST (UK)  »
Thank you all for your replies.   I had rejected Balmaha because no indication on an old map of a farm.
I dug out an 1832 map for Holemouth (attached) and much to my surprise there is many a possibility with all the "Bal?" farms around Fintry and an other Nr. Buchlyvie (Ballamenoch).

Stirlingshire / Whereabouts of farm
« on: Friday 05 October 18 14:51 BST (UK)  »
The MI in Buchanan Churchyard for Alex Buchanan (alias Lenny Lennie,Leny) has him as late farmer  BOLLOMACH (d 1786).    The OPR for the birth of his son William (1758) has his address as BALAMACHA.
I would be interested in knowing where this farm was and of course if there is a map available to enable a modern trace.  I know that his daughter married and moved to Holemouth, to the east of Fintry, which is not on any modern maps but I know where it was.

Midlothian / Re: Trinty Collage

Looking at your list of surnames and the 1841 census for the parish of Trinity College, there was a William Lyall aged 10 listed at Carrubbers Close along with others of around this age.    Is this the person you were looking for?

The 1851 census has him along with a similar named individual from 1841, both blind, and basket makers.

There was an almshouse adjacent to Trinity College Kirk.     The buildings were demolished in 1848.    Although the choir was reconstructed under the name Trinity Apse and did hold a Brass Rubbing Centre which no doubt allowed the production of Collages.

Margaret was the executrix in a will of 1920 (James Taylor).    I would be interested in knowing if any descendants are still alive.
1911 census in Bradford have the children as:
Margaret Hogg McGregor  (d 1983)
John James McGregor (d 1989) m Ellen Paley 1924
Emily Maria McGregor (d 1988) m Hubert Knight 1921

Her brother was in 1920 living in Quebec. ( St Anne de Beaupre (parish))

The 1846 Hughes burial was at Gogar Kirk.   https://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/directory_record/18710/gogar_churchyard
The church is now a cabinetmakers workshop which has a good image with some headstones @
