Not very good news, Annette.  I had a look in St Cuthbert's Road today which is on the outskirts of Kirkcudbright.  There are several fairly large houses there inc.  Millburn House, Mill House but no Millbank. I think it may have been demolished and a row of council houses built in its place. I will ask in the museum next time I'm there. They are usually very helpful.
 Best wishes Mary

Hello Mary,

Thankyou for going to so much trouble for me.  You most definately get an A for effort.

Yes disappointing but after so many years there had to be changes.

Maybe the museum will have an answer.  I am sure we will get an answer somehow.

I have an Illigitimate child - Alexander BEATTIE who was born at Millbank, Kirkcudbright in 1863.

I am wondering whether Millbank was a home for the poor or perhaps a farm.

I have 2 other children also belonging to Janet Beattie and could perhaps find they all were hers. The others being born in 1856 and 1858.     I have no marriage for Janet.

The signature of the mother for Alexander and William are identical.
Regards,  Annette

On searching for ancestors today I discovered that my great grandmother's father was a grain merchant at Millbank, Dalbeattie - so I presume it must have been a mill

On searching for ancestors today I found that my great grandmother was born at Millbank, Dalbeattie  in 1856- on her birth certificate it states that her father's occupation was a grain dealer so I presume it was a mill.
