Hi  I wonder if any one can help

My gt gt gt grandmother Barbara Croy died 24th October 1860 at Whitehall Stronsay aged 88 years. On her death certificate  she is described as the daughter of  Robert Croy (agricultural labourer deceased) and Margaret Croy nee Peace (deceased)

Caithness / Cameron family Reay
« on: Sunday 12 February 17 12:35 GMT (UK)  »
Hi This is a bit of an offshoot to something I was looking at previously. I have a Christina Cameron born approx 1806 in Reay. She married William McKay a cooper in Wick on 30Th Nov 1832. William died in 1860. They had 4 children William 1843 Alexander 1835 Elisabet(sp)1833 and Thomas 1846-58
I have found the family in the 1861 census
Christina McKay age 54. b. Ray. occ. fisherwoman. head.
Eliza McKay age 25. b. wick.occ. seamstress. daughter.
living at smith terrace,wick.   There is one possible match in Reay in 1871 but I cannot find her death certificate on SP which would tie her into the Cameron family in Reay .. Any one any ideas .. Many thanks

Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me with this family who originally came to Liverpool from Wick in the north of Scotland The parents were Thomas McKay b 1841 and Annie McKay b 1842. The family members I am stuck with are Robert born in 1869 whom I seem to lose very quickly , John born in 1871 who I think married a  lady called Francis and finally Thomas who again I think married a lady Johan .Thomas was a marine engineer who may have been part owner of a fishing trawler .  At one time they lived at Balliol Road in Bootle If anyone could shed more light on the family and their decendents i would be delighted and very grateful!!

Caithness / Robert and Thomas McKay
« on: Tuesday 17 January 17 10:44 GMT (UK)  »
Hi .. I am trying to trace 2 sons of Robert McKay a carpenter and his wife Margaret Bremner who lived latterly in Argyle Square Wick. They had 5 children Thomas born 1841, John Born 1842 and died in Edinburgh 1863,  Williamina born 1845 married George Flett and died in 1909 in Findochty, Margaret born 1850 died in Argyle Sq in 1876 and Robert 1853. I can find Robert in the 1881 census as a cooper living with his sister Williamina and her family in 15 Argyle Sq Wick .. and then he seems to disappear .. Nothing seems to match in the census or death records. I think I can see Thomas as an apprentice ships carpenter in Aberdeen in 1861 and possibly in the seamans reserve in 1871 census .. but after that again nothing seems to match either as McKay or MacKay !!! .. Any help greatly appreciated

My great grandmother Margaret Gunn Coghill was born 18th July 1866 at Banks Watten , She was an illegitimate child born to Isabella McKay farm servant as written on the birth certificate. The father was given as John Coghill also a farm servant. When Margaret Gunn Coghill died at Gillock on 2nd Feb 1901 her mothers name was given on the death certificate as Jane MacKay. The only other information I have was that Margaret Coghill seems to have been in Dunnet with her uncle as below
