Hi Judy
In the 1841 Census in District 1 Finagill was the second household visited after Dyfe Head though there was no Halliday there.  I believe Dryfe Head was the most norhern household in Hutton parish,  Very much back of beyond  :)

It can be found on www.streetmap.co.uk - the more modern map - as Finniegill
or on www.old-maps.co.uk - an 1860 map - as Finnygill

10 to 12 miles NE-ish of Lockerbie.
Regards
Reiver

Thank you very much for the replies.

I now know where Finnigal is and some other relatives of this family farmed at Dryfehead.

Does any one know where I can get information about when they were tennants here. I am presuming tennants rather than owning and I may be wrong there.

Thanks
Judy

Hi all,
just following this thread of Halliday's and variations of the surname.
Anyone with Halliday's ( or connection to the Halliday's) in the Hutton and Corrie area of Dumfriesshire please make contact.
FARMS mentioned in a large family tree that I am working on include:
Orchard, Woodend, Lochbrow Meikle Whitriggs, Rivox, Penlaw, Griegland.
I have access to significant research that has already been done by others ( over a no' of years and well referenced inmost cases)
I am now looking to fill gaps and obtain further proof of accuracy of this Hutton and Corrie ( area) family tree, by contacting living relatives from this line.
If you have any information ( particularly WILLS, mortcloth info, MI's etc) please make contact.
ALso does anyone have H&C MI's?? prior to 1817??

Other surnames in the tree include - mainly females marrying Halliday men....include:
( but not limited to):
Thorburn, Carruthers, Jardine, Dinwoodie ( or variations of) Laidley or Laidlaw,
,Goodfellow, Roddick, Ruthven, Rogerson, Porteous, Little

regards Anne-Louise Halliday

Judy

Fingland is not the same place as Finniegil,
There are a few farms with different variartions of Fingland within  there name

Anne Louise

I am Paul Rogerson and my granny is a Thorburn, I am sure there may also Hallidays there too.  We stay a couple of miles from Finniegil

Dryfe Head and Finniegill are now private households, prior to the 1960s they both belonged to the Waterhead of dryfe estate
