Would anyone happen to have an older  map outlining the farm area in Medrox, New Monkland, Lanark , Scotland  that Matthew Smeliie married to Jean Anderson occupied  about 1720. I believe they may have raised their children there.   And also a map of the property location that Matthew  Smellie inherited  at Wester Gartshore when his brother Adam died about 1730.  Would sincerly appreciate any assistance in locating these farm locations on an older map as well as   a present day map.

Thank-You,

Gary

I have found this info at Gartshore Family Surnames -pafg191-Generated by Personal Ancestry File (Page 1)  "Matthew Smellie was born abt. 1695 in Medrox, New Monkland, Lanark, Scotland."

Another source - Roots Web.com  (Lanark-l Archiver >LANARK> 2002-03> 1015968529

"Maththew Smellie b.1694 Medrox LNK. m. Jean Anderson b. 1698 New Monkland"

Also:  Family Search TM Ancestral File v4.19
"Matthew Smellie b. abt 1694  PLACE. Of Medrox, Lanark, Scotland"

Also:  IGI Individual Record  Family Search Genealogical Index v 5.0
"Matthew Smylie   birth. about 1694   ... spouse Jean Anderson  married abt. 1719 New Monkland, Lanark, Scotland.

I have found some errors on some recorded sites and I may stand corrected with this info I have found.

Hope this helps.

I have a Margaret Smellie b.  May 13, 1771 (parents) John Smellie & Elizabeth Shanks married 1762, New Monklands, Lanark, Scotland ....Margaret  was married to  John Black b. Aug. 1, 1769 ...they were (married) July 1795 in New Monklands, Lanark, Scotland ...children Thomas 1796, Mary 1798, Margaret 1800, Margaret 1801 , John 1803, Helen 1805, Jean 1807, Thomas 1809, Christian 1810, Janet 1812, Berthea 1815, Adam 1817....end....    QUESTION  Is this John  Black  married to Margaret Smellie related to  Robert Black married to Jean Smellie?

Also something ofi observational interest I have found since researching my line of Smellie form Gartshore & Medrox, New Monkland , Lanark, Scotland to Quebec, Canada - These families may have immigrated from Scotland to Canada at the same time ---  the Smellie, Black, Ross, Mack, and Waddells and Wardens & possibly other families . For  examples - Jane  Millar Smellie married  Peter Black , 2nd husband James Ross:  John Smellie married Margaret Mack, John Smellie married Margaret McLean, Maragret Martin Smellie married  James Warden. ( all lived in Godmanchester, or in close proximity) to Huntingdon, Quebec - Canada.

Good Morning ALYS:

  Thank-You very much for your help and the information you have sent.  I am quite new to the site and my computer skills are very limited.  Unfortunately, I do not know what you mean when you state a "PM" might be better ?  Again, your information will take me to avenues of information I never thought I would  ever see  and for this I am very greatful.

Gary
