Ayrshire / Re: Cotton Handloom Weavers of Maybole

Many thanks for that.  Was there a census for 1831 or 1821 and if so was it also done in Ireland??.

Being from Australia and having just established a connection with UK Im not all that up to speed with the research and records over there, afraid I have been very spoilt these last 30 years with the wonderful and very informative records in this country. And totally Free.  Now we do have to pay for Victorian records but I got all mine done before they decided to make some money out of it. NSW and Qld are still free, and the beauty is most time you get so much detail that you dont need a certificate.

Im sure that they have been paid for over and over many times.  Quess family research has become too popular!!!!!!

No luck.

Can you tell me what would have been the closest ferry port to Maybole in the early 1800's and where in Ireland would the ferry have sail from to meet up with that port.

I think it would be easier if I start with the areas around that port and then go further afield.  I cant find any records for any of my Mabole families in Scotland.  I have Mellan, Murphy,O'Neil, Tate and now Hampton there in the mid 1800's .

Thanks for that  ::)

I found my Hannah Lilley, she arrived on the same ship only she was 18 so they have listed her with the single females as was custom and her brother Willian was also there under Lilly.

thanks again for all your help

Not sure, they migrated in 1841 so they could have missed the census, its usually done in April???

London and Middlesex / Civil Servant - William Neal Moore
« on: Tuesday 03 January 12 09:28 GMT (UK)  »
I have a relative William Neal Moore who passed away in 1971.  He was a retired civil servant. Family in Australia believe that he worked for the Home Office in London.  He was still working there in 1962-68.

Is there anyway that I could view record relating to his service with department?.
