Could be related somehow, but not sure.  My James was born 1781 in dumfries.  He is in the 1841 census there, and he died in 1846.  He was married to Janet Neilson.  The only place I have found him so far is in the 1841.  So many families then had all their children named the same thing.  I do know that William McGowan was born in Kirks, so anything could be right.  William and Jane (daughter of James) were living in Troqueer in the 1861 census.  Could be that the census of 1841 is wrong as listing James birth place (we all know THAT never happens!!).  Thanks for the reply.  I will have to check that out a little further, maybe he is related to my family somehow.

In line with others I can add 'tuppence' worth. On a document, 'Particulars of the estate of Kelton belonging  to Gibson Scott esq.', undated but the watermark is 1824, William McGowan is listed as tenant of Kelton mains. The document, larger than A3 gives the acreage of Kelton mains as  over 140 acres . It lists also respective arable, meadow and wood acreage. Make of it what you will - help or hindrance?
My1813 reference is to the date of county survey.

Hi I know this is still a bit blurred so I will try to clarify, Kelton is a small village on the outskirts of Dumfries, there is also a Parish of Kelton which incorporates a village known as Kelton hill or Rhonehouse which is in Kirkcudbright not far from Castle Douglas  . If the birth records you are looking at state the Parish of Kelton then I imagine they mean Kelton hill also known as Rhonehouse in  Kkd

KELTON

A village on the east bank of the River Nith on the B725 - halfway between Kingholm Quay and Glencaple Quay in Dumfries-shire.

Until 1974, a parish in Kirkcudbright-shire including the villages of Rhonehouse, Gelston, and the Town of Castle Douglas.
