Ross & Cromarty / Samuel MUNRO--Kilmuir Easter--1788
« on: Friday 22 June 07 11:53 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to sort out who is the mother of Samuel Munro ch 28/11/1788 is.

According to Scotland's People, Samuel's parents are HECTOR MUNRO & BARBARA ROSS

According to IGI (LDS site) his mother is BARBARA MacFARQUHAR. On this site, Samuel has several siblings--family group..

ON Scotland's People, these siblings are there also--same dates etc--one who is older than Samuel has Barbara Mac Farquhar as mother,-then Samuel--Barbara Ross, then the rest have Barbara MacFarquhar.
I have been unable to trace a marriage record for Hector Munro (bc 1761) to either of these ladies

Ross seems likely as my grand father and his father (Samuel's son)were both named Robert Ross Munro

Hector Munro seems likely as a father as he was a mason as was Samuel & one of Samuel.s sons also Hector was a mason. I know these 2 things aren't  "proof" only leads.

I am not sure where else I can check this out as I understand that Scotland's people don't do research
Can anybody suggest anything I can do please.
Thank you--Eileen

Down / Sarah Jane Mitchel
« on: Wednesday 07 March 07 21:22 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for information about my great grandmother Sarah Jane Mitchel. she was married in Banbridge c Down in 1857 to Thomas Stenson. I have all the Stenson info and know that by 1861 they were living in Liverpool,but cannot trace Sarah's ancestors. She was b c 1841 and was living in Banbridge and was I think born there. Her father is down as Hugh Mitchel--a tailor. If I could find her birth certificate or registration I might be able to find out who her mother was and more about her father.
I would be grateful if somebody could suggest where I could look please.
Thank you--Eileen
