Buteshire / The Carrick Family
« on: Monday 13 October 08 10:59 BST (UK)  »

I'm interested in any Carrick families who lived in or around Rothesay c1840-1880.

Of particular interest are:

William and Flora Carrick who lived at 79 High Streeet with their children Hugh (born Glasgow c1840) , William (born Balfron, c1843) , Margaret (born  Castleton House - aka Shirvan, which belonged to the Graham-Campbell family and was situated on the edge of Loch Gilp c1846) , Duncan (Born Glasgow, c1848) and James (born Rothesay, Bute Feb 1850).  (Flora also lived at Old Vennel at one point, before moving back to the Anderson district of Glasgow in the 1870s)

Also, Henrey and Agnes Carrick who had 9 children including William, Henrey (died aged 15, buried somewhere in Rothesay), Donald, Margaret....etc.) and lived at 54 High Street at one point.  Henrey was one of several children of William Carrick [parent's William Carrick and Ann Steuart] and Mary Sivel, of Old Kilpatrick. He died in Glasgow in 1900. Mary Silvel's parents were English - Henrey Sivel and Ann Coppar[d?], from Lewes in Sussex.

Also James and Janet Carrick who lived at 64 High Street. James was a stone mason who died in Glasgow in 1866. Janet, who worked in the cotton factory, was born in Partick. They had several children - Jessie, Annie, Mary and James. Jessie and Annie went to Massachusettes in the US, James was a plumber in Glasgow. Janet moved to Lochwinnoch with her daughter Mary (a dairy maid who married a Crawford) where she died c1889.

But I know other Carrick's moved into and out of Rothesay during the period, including a Robert Henry Carrick (son of James [b Scotland] and Hannah of Liverpool) who married a Lillias Baxter Gunn of 27 High Street, before settling in Liverpool; and a William and  Margaret (Kirk-Kennedy) Carrick who had a son, Robert, in Montague st in the 1860s.

If you know anything more about any of these families, I'd love to hear from you.
