Thanks Monica, whoops, I had the wrong bit of the tree there, sorry! Thanks for the info, such a pain not being able to find them, have found so many others through Scotland's People, even one ancestor "born in fornication"  :o made it in to the register!
Definitely not RC, so guess they just never got around to it, or, as you say, the records were lost.
I hope to go back to the UK to live at some point, and I'll definitely be going to Selkirkshire.
Already discovered I have lots of ancestors from Dumfries and Galloway, which is one of my favourite corners of the UK, so good excuse to revisit there  :)
Campbell, Ireland
Hunter, Ireland
Frater, Selkirkshire Scotland
Kydd, Angus, Scotland
McMeekin, Antrim, Ireland
