Lanarkshire / Barony marriage
« on: Friday 04 March 11 15:49 GMT (UK)  »
I have a couple who were married in Barony I believe. They were Robert Young and Janet Wardrop, 7th Jun 1793.

I also believe he was a cornmiller.

Can anyone help me find anything else about them - their parents, where they lived or where they went to after their marriage (it might have been Cumbernauld, they had children there later on) but there is a seven year gap between their marriage and their first child born in Cumbernauld in 1800.


Devon Lookup Requests / William A PINCOTT
« on: Friday 19 November 10 11:31 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone help me with a marriage query. I have the marriage of William A Pincott to May Smith in the Sep Qu of 1921 in the Exeter district from FreeBMD.
I need his parents' names to go back and hope that someone might have come across this as they've been looking through parish records.
I realise this is a bit of a long shot without a specific parish to ask for a look up in but you never know!

Stirlingshire / Trade Directories Stirling
« on: Tuesday 20 July 10 10:50 BST (UK)  »
Following on from a previous thread and some invaluable help I received there - does anyone have access to, or know where I could find online, Trade Directories for Stirling between the years 1901 and 1910 . I have a Robert Young working as a draper in the 1901 census then owning a shop in Yorkshire in 1911 and a family photo (on previous thread) which was apparently his first shop which he opened in partnership with someone else in Stirling.
The Stirling shop was on Baker Street next door to where McCulloch and Young's was situated. There is probably going to be some link between the two shops/owners but I'm trying to find out what it might be and tracing who owned them might be a good starting point.

Stirlingshire / drapers shop stirling

I have an ancestor called Robert Young b 1864 Kirkintilloch, who was a partner in a drapers shop in Stirling sometime before he moved to Yorkshire and opened his own shop in about 1907/8. I have found him in the 1891 census still living with his parents but can't find him in 1901 so i hoped to try pinning his whereabouts down via the shop if anyone has any details about it or its owners.
i have a photo of the shop which may help in recognising it but it's too large to post on this board.

Dunbartonshire / Robert Young, cornmiller
« on: Thursday 15 July 10 14:53 BST (UK)  »
I'm trying to trace information about an ancestor called Robert Young. He married a Janet Wardrop(e) in Glasgow on 7/6/1793 then move to Kirkintilloch in Dunbartonshire and had a son called Robert born about June 1800. I would like to find any other children of the marriage or info about the first Robert or his wife's deaths if possible.The younger Robert stayed in the area so I'm presuming his father did as well.

Orkney / McKay Gunn
« on: Wednesday 21 April 10 11:28 BST (UK)  »
I have a direct ancestor called John McKay Gunn who told the family he came from Orkney, although in the censuses and on his marriage cert it just says Scotland. So far I have not been able to trace him or his family. I hope someone can help or point me in a suitable direction.

John McKay Gunn born about 1830
On marriage cert gives father as John Gunn, farmer.

He moved to England prior to his marriage in 1861.
