These are old maps of the area around Tomintoul.   I can see a few slightly similar names but not one that seems to match :-\

For anyone else who, like me, was mightily confused:
Tomintoul is a village in Scotland; formerly in Banffshire.

So, nothing to do with Kirkmichael on the Isle of Man :-\

It's on the wrong board, so confusion is understandable.  ;)

Kay may have found the correct place, but in order to confirm, maybe you could check the baptisms of other children, assuming a place name is given, to see how it is written. The parent's marriage might also be worth a look.

I'd agree with Delnalyne - there's a list of place names from the OS books on Scotland's Places, and the list for Kirkmichael can be found at http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/digital-volumes/ordnance-survey-name-books/place-names/Kirkmichael?id=1008&class=parish&county=Banffshire

Well first of all thank you Kay99 - Alex father William was based on a farm called Delachule just near to the place Dalynalion as written in his baptistism - I have just by-passed it time and time again thinking it was just another old spelling for Delachule - but today bless you - you have put me right - as for the survey maps I have used before - but at the moment as I have just moved my laptop is in storage and dreaded using the ever so small maps on the phone - but thanks to Kay99- there it was right in front of my eyes - it now adds another slant to my kinsfolk - Alex being my GGG grandfather born 1802 - so I just presumed it was Delachule home of his father - Alex did take on Delachule after his father left it - for Kirkmichael not sure why I put that up I think it because Kirkmichael just comes up for that time - and yes it is Tomintoul - Kirkmichael - Banffs - thank you all B-)

Thank you Kay99 - the pictures are free to post - so here we go - Dalynalion as it was once known and the track from Lagganvoulin to Dalynalion and a randy Stuart and an illegitimate child at Delachule now we know how he got there - it would have been down to Dalynalion and across the foot bridge to Delachule - he he he  8) - and if anyone says we could have done with a little less info - God bless 'em   ::)

Hi,

Dalnaloin, to the east of and south of Tomintoul is marked on the General Roy 1747 - 1752 Military map (see attached ref http://maps.nls.uk/geo/roy/index.cfm#zoom=14&lat=57.2439&lon=-3.3016&layers=roy-highlands)

Regards
Istrice
