Hi Jean

I was born near the village of Dalton and have never heard of Windrigg but thats not to say there was not a place named that.  There is Millstonerigg, Kirklandrigg and Mossrigg.   Is there a name that is associated with Windrigg that we could maybe go on.

Regards

Kathleen

Hi Kathleen

Thanks for your reply, my gggg grandparents, Francis Henderson and Mary Vivers, who married in 1777,  were from Dalton.  I know this from my own research, recently I've been given access to another descendant's research and the notes mention Windrigg Kirk as their address, (also in the notes as Kirk Windrigg). 

Francis Henderson was a farmer so I thought it was possibly a farm and that I might be able to see where they lived next time I'm in the Dumfries area.

Hi, there is also a place called WhinyRig not too far from Dalton Kirk and Kirkland Rig

Also found a birth of a daughter Ann to Francis Henderson and Mary Vivers at Kirklandrigg in 1784 on a previous search for one of our own

Hi again

Kirklandrigg is not in the village of Dalton is a few miles from their and on the Murraythwaite Estate.  There are three cottages there and it is possible that years ago it was a farm as there are farm buildings but when I was living in that area the estate used the buildings for storeage.  The cottages are let out now and I don't know of anyone left who would be able to help.  I will make enquiries as I sometimes come in contact with the people who own Murraythwaite Estate now and maybe they can check this out for me.

On the old map that I have, Whinny Rig and Kirkland Rig are just inside the Dalton parish boundary next to Murraythwaite which is in Cummertrees
