McCUBBIN family - David McCubbin B: 1860, immigrated to Canada circa 1891
« on: Tuesday 12 November 13 00:50 GMT (UK) »
Looking for my husband's ancestors/relatives.  My husband's great-grandfather David McCubbin (wife Clarissa (nee Shaw) b 1865) left Scotland between 1890 and 1892 and immigrated to Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.  David had 2 children when they left Scotland:  Walter, born 1880 in India and David John, born 1890 in Scotland.  Clarissa was born in England, and they were married in Bombay.  David's parents were John McCubbin (b about 1827 in Urr) and Grace MacRobert (born 1819 in Kirkgunzeon).  My research shows that all of John and Grace's children were born and lived in Kirkcudbrightshire.

I've become very interested in tracking down family history - most especially because our daughter and I will be visiting Scotland and England in February 2014.  I'd love to hear from anyone who
    is a McCubbin living in the Kirkcudbright area
      knows more about this line of the McCubbins
        might be able to give me some insight about what might have spurred David & Clarissa McCubbin to leave Scotland for Canada.  Wanderlust?  Hard economic times?

        Thanks!!

Hi,
I am also a descendant of David McCubbin and Clara Shaw.
My great great grandfather was Marmaduke McCubbin, and grandfather is Howard Mccubbin.
Donít know why they married in India. But I am also curious

David John was born 13 Sept 1890 at Haugh, URR.  His father at this time was and Inspector (Police).  The informant of the birth was John Dickson, Uncleinlaw (never seen this term before).

David and Carisa were married 29 March 1888 in Bombay.

This is from David John's birth registration available at https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk or you can send me a PM with your email and I will send it to you.

I also have a McCubbin connection.

Robina McCubbin was born 1776, she married John McGaw, 29 October, 1799, in Renfrew, Renfrewshire. Scotland. They had one child, Elizabeth McGaw

When Elizabeth McGAW was born in 1803 in England, her father, John McGaw was 26, and her mother, Robina McCubbin was 27.  Elizabeth McGaw married William McAUGHTRIE on 24 April 1824 in Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland. They had 12 children in 22 years. She died on 23 February 1862 in Girvan, Ayrshire, at the age of 59.

According to the relationship calculator on my tree, Elizabeth McGaw was the wife of my 4th Great Uncle, William McAughtrie, married Barr by Girvan, 24 April 1824.
