Hi atherleigh
I believe the road you mention should be "'on the side of Glasgow/Kirkintilloch".
Western Australia.

P.S. How do I know? I'm from Ayrshire originally.

Hi Quinco
Noticed your post as I was born and raised in Saltcoats; next door to Stevenston. May I suggest that the street name is "Boglemart Street" rather than  "Boghanast".


I would greatly appreciate any Passenger/Vessel/ Port and Date of Arrival data relating to my forebears. In probably the early-mid 1920s, the following members of my extended family emigrated from Ayrshire, Scotland to New Zealand:

McCREADIE, William born 7 Aug 1866
McCREADIE, (DEVLIN), Elizabeth born 25 Jul 1865
McCREADIE, Annie (Janet Allan) born c. 1891
MCCREADIE, Hugh born c. 1901
McCREADIE, John¹ born c. 1904
McCREADIE (BLACK), David² born 28 Nov 1916

¹  John McCREADIE appeared on the 1928 Electoral Roll but not that for 1925. If emigrants were required to be resident for two years before enrolling to vote, it can be extrapolated that William and Elizabeth emigrated circa 1923. This would account for John not appearing in the 1925 Electoral Roll.
²  David BLACK was the grandson of William and Elizabeth who were his legal guardians.

All are buried in Andersons Bay Cemetery.

Kind regards to our Kiwi cousins
Western Australia.
