Boyd's of Kilsyth and Airdrie
« on: Sunday 13 September 15 18:24 BST (UK) »
Hi all, Is there anybody out there who has ancestors called John Boyd married Isabel Small (Born:1745), they had six children to know of (James, Jean, Janet, Helen, James and Isabel) all born in the Kilsyth/Airdrie area. The reason I ask is my second cousin (*) has regrettably been struck ill with parkinson's disease and is slowly deteriorating and no longer researches the family history of the Boyd's. Therefore we have several files of information that other relatives may find of interest. Hope to hear from you soon!

Darren

If you haven't already done so, a good way to make surname connections with other members is to enter your surname interests in the Surname Interests Table (SIT), and to check there whether others are researching these names. 

This can be found at http://surname.rootschat.com/ , there is a link to it under "Your Tools" at the bottom of each Rootschat page.

The more people who enter their surnames, the more chance there will be of making a connection!

Helen21, did any of your Boyds stray into Cumbernauld? Specifically John, who married Jean Waddell and had four of a family in Cumbernauld: Jean c 1795, Robert 1799, James 1802, Agnes 1805?

There is what appears to be a matching marriage in Paisley in 1794, except that the groom's name is recorded (twice) as James, not John, Boyd. I am not sure whether this is the same couple with errors in his name, or an entirely different couple with almost the same names married at exactly the right sort of time but who had no recorded children.

Forfarian-I have a couple of Waddell's but none that married a Boyd at that time.

There is John Waddell who married Helen Cleland (nee Buchanan, ~1810-1864) and had a daughter, Margaret Waddell in 1843 in Kilsyth.  (Helen later married James Boyd in Kilsyth in 1846, and they were the parents of John Boyd (1847-1905) Chief Constable of Glasgow Police)

The other is Jeanette Waddell (1811-1899) from Whitburn, Wln, daughter of George Waddell & Catherine Calder. Jeanette married Peter Shanks of Slamannan Sti, and in 1835 they emigrated to the USA.

Thank you. I have come across both of those, but have not been able to connect them to my Waddell family.

Hi there.

I have just recently found out about my family tree.

John Boyd and Isabel Small are my great(x6) grandparents.

My family tree is very similar to Helen21.

James Boyd (1782-1861) & Elizabeth Patrick
James Boyd (1808-1877) & Ann Johnston Hay
William Boyd (1841-1908) & Elisabeth Young
James Boyd (1873 - 1938) & Isabella Quin
Mary Boyd (1913 - 1988) & John Easton

which then brings me to my grandparents

Grace Easton (1942 - ) & James McGhee.

I would love to know more about the family tree and would appreciate any information your cousin has.

Thank you very much

Janet

Duplicate message http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=528517.msg6401620#msg6401620 - if you wish to respond to the query about John Boyd and Jean Waddell please go to that thread where there is already a lot of information. Please do not add to this thread, which is about a different family.
