Just come back to this after a break, but not really any further forward, although I have had one thought as Cunningham was a tailor, which is confirmed from Catherines death cert, then there may be something about him in the minutes of the Kirkcudbright incorporated trade of Tailors.

Does anyone know if these minutes still exist and if so where they may be inspected,

thanks

It would appear that the minutes of the incorporated trades are held in Broughton House in the town

see http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/nra/searches/subjectView.asp?ID=O47942&tabType=ARCHIVE

looks like a visit is required next time I am in the town

Still looking for information about Cunningham Rae and I came across this web page, whilst its clearly not the Cunningham Rae I'm looking for I presume there is some relationship.

http://www.kirkyards.co.uk/historyarticle.asp?ID=112&p=19&g=4 which amongst other stuff has the following comment

Kirkcudbright – Galtway.

The churchyard of Galtway is situated about two miles to the south-east of Kirkcudbright.

......

Longevity.
The greatest age observed is as follows :- “The above Cunningham Rae, died at Crofthead, 29th December 1903, aged 98 years.”


Could anyone help to supply the full MI of this gravestone and find out if there are any more Raes buried there, also where is Crofthead in relation to Kirkcudbright.

As far as I can tell Galtway cemetery seems to be near Banks farm on the Dundrennan road

I know that this thread is four years old but I am relatively new to this.

I followed the thread and broadly agree with the info except that the Agnes who lived with William and Margaret Rae in Burnfoot of Portmary was only 20 years old in the 1841 census - so surely she is not the Agnes Rae (Duncan) we are looking for?

I have a copy of the death certificate for a Cunningham Rae (which i think is the same one this thread refers to) which lists him as the widower of Grace Logan (Good) died at Crofthead, Kirkcudbright (Good) and was the son of William Rae (Good) and Agnes Rae (nee Duncan) (Not so good). No mention of Margaret McKune.

Are we conflating two different families here or is there another explanation?

Hi Michael

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

When this popped up, I wondered why I'd got it but I see that I contributed. Notice that I corrected the info about Agnes, very early on:

However, I notice that Agnes was aged 78 in the 1841 census - suggesting a birthdate of circa 1763 and William was 60   (so b. c. 1781). Also, William and Margaret are on the 1851 census at Port Mary, Burnfoot with William aged 71 and Margaret aged 73. By 1861, they were 85 and 88, respectively. In 1871, William was 97!

William died on 19th February 1875 (not 1874) , aged 101, according to his death certificate.
