You would need to use one of the subscription sites like Ancestry or Find My Past to obtain the 1901 census you are looking for. Alternatively many libraries provide access to the Ancestry library edition for free.

There are also some good free resources which might save using too many credits on Scotland's People. Freecen has the Wigtownshire censuses up to 1871 (the transcriptions are better than the ones I posted earlier). The baptism/ birth records I quoted are on Family Search. Also worth a spin are the Wigtownshire Pages on Rootsweb (google Wigtownshire pages).

Good luck with your search.

I know I'm a bit late to the show but I believe we share the same Rankin ancestors from Stranraer.
Alexander Rankin (born Ireland, 1791) and his wife, Mary McGhee (born wigtownshire) are my 4th great grandparents.
They had seven children: Alexander, James, Jane (aka Jean), Richard, Thomas, William and Mary.
They were Tile and Brickmakers and either rented or owned the Clasmahew factory in Stranraer. I'm still looking into this.

Richard Rankin (born 1819) is my 3rd great grandfather, he married Sarah Armstrong and later, Agnes Watson.

Richard and Sarah's daughter, Elizabeth is my 2nd great grandmother and sister to Margaret who married David Cosh.

They were a huge family and I'm still researching them...a few 2nd and third marriages, makes it more interesting!
