MAPS ... the man Hugh ERSKINE for whom records are being published in this thread, appears not to have an immediate connection to the Margaret HALCROW you speak of.

[This Hugh ERSKINE did however have sons named Ebenezer ERSKINE and Ralph Martin ERSKINE but the mother of these children was the aforementioned Agnes Mary nee ARMSTRONG.]

At the link below is the Probate record for this Hugh ERSKINE ... and at Image 731 there is a statement attesting to the fact that he was born at Lisburn, Ireland.

"Ebenezer Erskine was a Scottish minister whose actions led to the establishment of the Secession Church. Wikipedia
Born: 22 June 1680
Died: 2 June 1754, Stirling, United Kingdom
Education: University of Edinburgh
Siblings: Ralph Erskine"


The year of 1647 may indeed have been the year MAPS meant........

Wow, I never expected a reaction like this !
Thank you all very much for all your searches.
Minniehaha you have found the original Ebenezer. I think I owe you all an explanation for my original message.
My 3x great grandfather GEORGE MAINLAND married a MARY HALCROW in London in 1810. This Mary Halcrow is believed, by my Mainland family, to be the uncountable times great grandaughter of MARGARET HALCRO (1647) see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Halcro-3
I am hoping to be able to fill in the descendants between MARY and MARGARET but no luck so far.
I know about the Erskine Genealogy book online but it's no help it's more about the Erskines than the Halcros. My Mainland family originate fro m Orkney as well and believe it or not from the very same Island (Wyre) where Margaret was born !
If you know the story about how MARGARET was buried alive then you'll know about "The Ring". Many years ago my cousin was sent a picture of this RING by a lady from Te Aroha who was either a Halcrow or an Erskine descendant ??
I was trying to track down this person or family hence my message.

Thanks again everybody. MAPS

Maps,  a book for you, "The Little General & the Rousay Crofters!" Thomson. Wyre was part of the Rousay estate which was bought by the wee carnaptious General Burroughs & treated the islanders as if he was back in India! Amazon.

Thanks Skoosh an excellent tip.  I do know of the book ,in fact I saw it in Rousay where we stayed there a few years ago but then I promptly forgot about it. I will get hold of it one way or another.

MAPS

... a researcher of the ERSKINE family at  the following link has a "New Zealand" connection by way of an email address.  ;D     Might be worth trying to see if he knows of the Te Aroha researcher ??   :D
