John Neil Cambusnethan
« on: Sunday 21 May 06 17:33 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

I am looking for information on John Neil born around 1850- 1852 in Cambusnethan, son of Arthur Neil and Janet (Smith) Neil.
He married a Mary Patterson daughter of James & Isabella Gillies Patterson on the 30th December 1872 at Shotts Iron Works, Shotts.

Any information would be helpful, thanks,

Swally

Hi Swally,

The only definite ones shown are post 1855:

Arthur O'Neil 10 Aug 1855 ( a good one to view the certificate - loads more info given in 1855!)
David O'Neil 28 Apr 1857
Betsy O'Neil 23 Mar 1859
Robert O'Neil 4 May 1861
William O'Neil 12 Feb 1864 (in Carluke)
Janet Neil 17 Mar 1866 (Carnwath)
William McNeil 18 Dec 1867 (Carnwath)

Other possibles include:
Margaret (1847)
Agnes (1849)
Mary (1850)
Thomas (1853)

These are from a batch which begins F and I am not sure of their reliability, especially since all the dates are preceded by "about".  I recommend that you look at the 1851 and 1861 census available at:

Hi Swally

There are a number of submitted IGI entries for Arthur O'Neil and Janet Smith.

For Arthur, Sherlock has already provided the details.

From 1841 FreeCen, this looks like Arthur with his family:

O'NEIL   John   26       Delf Merchant        Lanarkshire            
O'NEIL   Agnes   50               Lanarkshire            
O'NEIL    Jean    18               Lanarkshire            
O'NEIL    Arthur    18               Lanarkshire            
O'NEIL    William 15               Lanarkshire            
WINNICK   Mary  50       Pauper        Lanarkshire            
KING    Mary    45       Pauper        Lanarkshire    

Address: Carluke High St, Carluke-Lanarkshire    

A parent search on IGI shows one additional brother for Arthur called Robert born c.1819 in Carluke. There are also additional entries re marriages and deaths for a number of Arthur's siblings.

______________________________________________________________

For Janet:

JANET SMITH Birth:  16 JAN 1826      
Parents: Father: THOMAS SMITH    Mother:  MARGARET WHITE    
         
Marriages: Spouse:  ARTHUR ONEIL Marriage:  About 1846, Lanark, Scotland

There are about 3 or so possibles for Janet with family in the 1841 FreeCen, hard to be definite without more info.

_____________________________________________________________

For John and Mary Patterson, these are the children showing for them on IGI. The pre 1875 entries are actual extracts, those post are submitted entries:

1. ISABELLA NEIL  Birth: 07 FEB 1873 Calderhead, Lanark, Scotland
2. ARTHUR NEIL Birth: 15 NOV 1874 Carnwath, Lanark, Scotland
3. James Neil Male Birth: 1877 Dalserf, Lanark, Scotland
4. Janet Smith Neil Birth: 1879 Shotts, Lanark, Scotland
5. Margaret Neil Birth: 1880 Shotts, Lanark, Scotland

Regards.

Monica

Hi, I need more info on close family as well. I have the death certificate of Agnes FYFE (nee NEIL), daughter of Arthur NEIL (without the 'O')  and ? SMITH. She died 18 December 1938 in Auckland, New Zealand aged 63. Born in Cambusnethan. I have entered her on Wikitree https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Neil-1035, and would like to see her profile built up and connected to further members of her family.

She married Thomas FYFE in Cambusnethan about 1866. At Thomas's time of death in 1907 in NZ there were 10 daughters alive. Agnes must be a sister of your John Neil, Swally.

All the best.
