Do you have any information on William McEwan, born about 1825?
Thank You in advance,

Hi Bruce!

Just found your thread! It's wonderful that you are looking up names for others! How did you come across the book anyway? :)

I few things I would like you to look up:

According to someone else's research, John Taylor and Ann Millar were married on the 11th of December 1772 in Muthill. Is that true? Also, is there any other valuable information on there, such as parents names, witnesses, or their ages?

Also I have the birth of John Taylor as 15 May 1748 in Muthill. Does it list his parents there? Does he have any siblings on the nearby pages.

I found a family record of Dinah Murray with Robert McNeil stating that she was born on 9 February 1732 and that he was born on the 8th of March 1726, both in Muthill. I cannot find an actual birth record for either person. Could you check?

Could you find the marriage of Lodovick Murray to Grizel/Grisel Reid? I found a record on ancestry.com that says 1733 in Muthill but it does not give the full date.

Lastly, can you look for the births of Duncan McIlvride and Janet Bayne? I have them both being born approximately 1699, possibly in Muthill.

I hope that's not too much to ask! I'm just pretty stuck and I'm very excited to find out if you can help me break through my roadblocks!

Hi mackie0192837465

The book I have is the episcopal register not the established kirk  (church of Scotland)

The records for Muthill during the time frame you are looking at are very hit and miss.

1746. The confusion of the times, occasioned by a civil war raging in this Country, and the persecution that followed in great severity, often driving me from attending my Charge, make a chasm here that cannot now be filled up, for tho many baptisms were performed, the inserting of them was not attended to in proper time, but some room is left for such as may be recovered. W. E. [William Erskine]. (161) is a blank page. 1749- (162)

During the 45 rebellion  Muthill was sacked twice once by the highlanders on the way down and also by government troops on the way to Culloden one of the houses burnt down was the beadle's house containing all the kirk records.

Have you tried     www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk   free to search

I will have a look through the book I have.

Yours Aye
