This is most interesting.. Have you any idea when the Scotts lived at Barnbarroch and for how long? Charles lived at Woodbank Dumfries lateron before becoming bankrupt and being exiled to Australia where he died on 1898.

I am doing research into the Scott Family who were instrumental in establishing the Tweed Industry in Dumfries. I am having some difficulty in establishing the position regarding Charles Walker Scott. I know that he was born in Manchester about 1845 and married Mary Lorimer in Dumfries in1869. He lived at Woodbank on the Edinburgh Road Dumfries and appears on the 1871 census at that address. However he does not appear to be on the 1881 or 1891 census. He is recorded as withdrawing from the partnership of Walter Scott and Sons on the 12th June 1895 and he died in Australia on the 27th September 1898 .If anyone can shed any light on the missing period from 1871 -1895 it  would be greatly appreciated

Trying to trace information on Archibald Smith believed to have lived at 24 Ferrier Street Glasgow and have been a flower salesman. Killed in an accident about 1964-65. He also lived at Maryhill and Yoker at some time.

I am doing research into the Scott family who were pioneers of Tweed Manufacture in Dumfries Scotland.

One of the family was exiled from Dumfries and sent to Australia as a " remittance man" with an allowance of 1500 per year.. He went in the 1890's and died at Manly, Northern Beaches Council , New South Wales on the 23/9/1898. I wondered if anyone has any information on him as he seems to have vanished or been deliberately written out of the family records.

Robert Scott was born in Dumfries but when he got married in Dumfries in 1804 the papers referred to him and his future wife as coming from Manchester. Walter Scott was born in Dumfries but when he came to the town in 1857 again he was referred as coming from Manchester.

The information on Walter Scott and family is most helpful.  He died in 1899 aged 79 which suggests that the date of birth of 1816 is incorrect and bears out the other facts. I had some problem with his wife but this was resolved when I found out that his first wife had died and he remarried in 1863. Many thanks for this useful information

I am trying to find information on Walter Scott born Dumfries 1816 and apparently went to work in Manchester before returning to Dumfries to build a tweed factory in 1857. I think that he might have worked for, or with family members, in textiles but have no evidence. His father Robert Scott born 1780 also went to Manchester and returned to Dumfries to set up a hosiery business in 1810. likewise I have no information on his missing years . Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Dumfriesshire / Re: Robert Scott- Master Gardener
« on: Wednesday 12 September 18 20:11 BST (UK)  »
I have been advised that there was a Robert Scott who worked for the Buccleuchs In Langholm as a Master Gardener. Copies of receipts for 1771 and 1772 or on record a Drumlanrig Castle in the Buccleuch archives. However this does not confirm that the Robert Scott is the same one that I am researching. Has anyone any idea how I can take this further. All the information I have is that Robert Scott Master Gardener was married to Mary McMichael . He died in 1824 and she died in 1812 and both are buried in Tinwald Churchyard . A book on the Scotts who founded the Tweed Industry  in Dumfries gives the above as parents of Robert Scott the founder but does not refer to the Buccleuch connection

I have been researching  Robert Scott, born in Tinwald, and found that the records for this parish are missing from Scottish People . However the churchyard Memorials have been recorded and there is a copy of a book giving this information in the Ewart Library in Dumfries
