McLarty Family Line, Argyle and Ayrshire
« on: Sunday 22 July 18 17:13 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone. Iím wondering if anyone would be kind enough to supply me with any information they may have on Duncan and/or Malcolm McLarty.
I have all the details of Malcolm (1799-1868), the Taylor in Ayr, Scotland. All his sons, except James (who Iím off of) followed him out to Wisconsin.
Anyway, his Father was also called Malcolm, 14 Dec 1760, married to Janet Andrew born in Craignish Argyle. I think his Mother and Father were Duncan McLarty and Isabel Black.  Duncan was also born in Craignish! I can only guess around 1730-1740. This is where I am totally stuck. I canít find any children and Iím not finding deaths etc. Did they come off the peninsula?  I donít think they emigrated?  Any help would be much appreciated x

Not much matching what you have in the OPR's from Scotland's People just this...

MCLARTY DUNCAN ISOBEL BLACK/FR246 (FR246) 27/11/1756 Craignish

And there are no recorded births of any children. 

No marriage of a McLarty to an Andrew.

The only Malcolm b 1790ish of a Malcom in Scotland is this one.

MCLARTY MALCOLM MALCOLM MCLARTY HELEN CLARK FR596 (FR596) 14/11/1790 Greenock Old or West

The problem you have is the further you go back the fewer the records.  Either children weren't baptised or the records are lost.  Deaths are even more scarce.

May I ask where this information came from?

Hi Jean

I am descended from your James, sister, Marion and share the same interest in researching the McLartyís.  So will therefore keep a close eye on this thread.

Best wishes (cousin)!

Hi there Don and cousin Tom!  I am so sorry for being so late with my reply. (And I canít work the site grrr)  Anyway I have Malcolm the tailors birth register and on it, it says that he is the son of Malcolm and Janet Andrew! A Tanner in Ayr!  I thought I could get them on a census and/or surely some register through his occupation!  Alas Iíve got nowhere x
