Hi there,
I have Longmuirs too, Thomas born Lanarkshire 1806 who married Sarah Hamilton (1810-1891) in 1830 in Lanark. Their son Thomas Longmuir (1832-1855) married Agnes Paterson (1835-1913) in 1852 who had a daughter Marion who married John McDowell in 1889 Bridgeton, Glasgow.

Any connections?

Best wishes, Jimmijam

G'day
Our Longmuirs come from around Angus, Kincardine areas and so far haven't found our line around Glasgow yet, although Lanark isn't too far away.  Thomas is not a name that is common in my line.  We have not expanded all the branches on the tree and keep finding more as we go along.  I will keep you in mind for future reference.  The Scots were certainly travellers (not the gypsy type) and they crop up all over the place! In Australia there appears to be two distinct lines, one line are sea-faring and the other are labourers.  My line were crofters/labourers in Scotland and labourers in Australia.  The sea-farers seem to come from Banffshire.

Hi Gwen,
Thanks for replying.

Sarah was a grocer (quite forward for her time), and her husband Thomas, a handloom weaver and their son Thomas was a mason.  I've found a few Longmuirs from the Lanarkshire / Central Scotland area in the census but it seems to be a somewhat unusual name.

Best wishes, Jimmijam

Hi folks
I am Aussie Princess's cousin from New Zealand.  I am interested in Margarets information re Kirkpatrick LONGMUIR.  I do not have any children for Georgina LONGMUIR and John BYARS.  Is there any chance of you having them?
Thanks

Margaret
Could you please tell me - John B LONGMUIR (who married Bridget WALSH) - what does the "B" stand for?

I don't know what the "B" is for - his Mother was Anne Brand, maybe that's it?

All,

I'm fairly new to this, but am a descendant from William and Agnes Longmuir (Saskatchewan, Canada) and am trying desperately to trace our ancestry back to an origin (as far back as possible) in Scotland.

I've been able to trace back William crossing to Nova Scotia on the "Siberian" and landing in 1905. However, from what I can tell, our family originated in Lanarkshire. On the ship's transcripts the description reads "Farmer" which makes sense as we are still farmers in Canada, Age 25, and Single as a marital status. All this adds up, but from what I can tell his father would have been John Longmuir.

Can anyone help?
