I have had a look for Alexander in 1871, and yes he is back at the family farm Nether Barr with Ann. Who knows whether it was for a visit or stayed a couple of years!? The Hyslops liked to trave but seemed to remain a close knit family, so I don't know if we can ever find out. I think the age is trannscribed wrongly.

I would still love details of the grave.

Many thanks

Tracey

tracey..just to elaborate on my previous message about the graves...alexander married ann marples my gt gt gt aunt.they are both buried with anns sister emma,my great great grandmother and her husband william tomlinson. also in the grave is their baby granddaughter.she was the baby of the other couple in plot u16!
u16 has two of my great grandparents lilly and edwin tomlinson..my great uncle will is with them but his wife doris is with her family on the other side of the city!!  a little strange for acouple married over 50 years.
may i ask even though alexander is only a relative by marriage i am still interested,does the hyslop family have a family plot and stone at lochrutton..when did james,alexanders fatherand mother       die,theyve got me hooked..if we ever came up to the dumfries area for a break we would know where to find them..

The mason probably had in mind the areas of Upper Hallam (western Sheffield) called Carsick and Carsick Hill.

yes, some time ago thought the same..carsick hill rd isnt far from where ann and alexander lived..the widowed ann was living on brookhouse hill ,fulwood area on the1891 census with alexanders brothers staying or visiting...theyre not blood related,only by marriage but its very intriguing.i am still "investigating"...fran

Bluepenguin.... I'm still laughing at Car-sick  :o

Its definitely got to be Corsock. Thanks for the transcriptions, its wonderful to tie together all the family members! All very very appreciated.

Yes the remaining family are in a large plot at Lochrutton Kirk. Its definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. I meant to go back up at Christmas but didn't find the time. Give me a shout if you need directions as it isnt the easiest place to find (have to drive up a very narrow steep track but theres space to park at the top)

When I have 5 minutes, later today I can type the transcriptions out if you would like.

I also found the census where the brothers were visiting Ann. All I can assume is that they were a close family and got on well enough to visit their sister in law. A generation previously two hyslop brothers emigrated to New York, and the brother who is my relation returned home. So it looks like they liked to travel, but kept strong links with 'home' (Bit like me!)

There are a group of 6 stones (only 4 of which I have pictures as I didn't realise at the time) in the Hyslop plot;

These two are the most relevant but all the hyslops are related back to a John Hyslop who died 21.2.1761 aged 72:

197:
Late James HYSLOP, Nether Barr, Kirkpatrick Durham, 6th son Robert HYSLOP died Carlisle 17.9.1857 aged 32. Son John HYSLOP died Sheffield 22.9.1860 aged 38.

198:
Alexander HYSLOP late in Carswadda died Kirkland of Terregles 12.4.1814 in his 84th year, wife Elspeth AFFLECK died there 15.9.1806 in her 58th year, their only son James died Nether Barr 22.11.1844 in his 73rd year. Wife Margaret HYSLOP died Nether Barr, Corsock 15.4.1873 in her 87th year, their second son David died Nether Barr, Kirkpatrick Durham 31.12.1853 in his 40th year.



So basically; father to Alexander, and John is James HYSLOP who died 1844. James had six sons with his wife Margaret; David, William, Alexander, John. Thomas and Robert.

Father of James is Alexander HYSLOP who died 1814 Carswadda. James was the only son, but on another stone there is two daughters, Agnes and Isabella.

I have father of Alexander as brother to my branch of Hyslops, John Hyslop b 1720 Charles Hyslop and Thomas Hyslop b 1729 ; they are all sons of John HYSLOP b 1689
