Hello,
Just wondering if you have any information on Hugh Boyce who married Martha or Marion  Murray born 1852.   I believe he could be one of my Boyces also from County Down.

Best Regards,

Hi -

I think these "Murrays" and "Boyces" are my ancestors.  My mother was Martha Murray Boyce Reid Baird (born in Barrhead 21.05.27) to Martha Murray Boyce Reid and James Baird.  My grandmother came from Dalry and had a brother (and I think an Uncle also) called Hugh.  I know that the family (I think the Boyces) hailed from Ireland.

What is your connection with this particular tree?

Hi

Given that Martha Murray (1853) married Hugh Boyce (1848), do you descend from this family here:

My mother was a Murray of Martha Murray's family.

Kind regards

Hi,

My late husband is descended from Hugh BOYCE (1848-1893) and Martha MURRAY (1852-1934):-

Their daughter Mary Dickenson [or Dickieson] BOYCE b.1875 married Thomas JACKSON b.1874 of Peesweep Row, Dalry, on 31 Dec 1894 at Presbyterian Church, Westend, Dalry.

They had the following children:-

Mary Ann Jackson b.1895
Martha Murray Jackson (b.1898 Dalry-d.1982 Western Australia )
David Jackson b.1899
James Boyce Jackson (b.1900 Dalry-d.1980 Kelty, Fife)

James Boyce JACKSON was a Miner and moved to Fife, where there were numerous coal mines at the time.  He married Catherine McPhillips GREER (b.1902 Bathgate d.Kelty, Fife) on 2 September 1921 in The Moray United Free Church Manse, Kelty, Fife
