Hoping that someone may be able to help!!!!!
We're looking for information on the marriage of John Robb and ?????
around Castle Douglas/Crocketford area in Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland in 1851-1853. John's parents were Bryce and Mary (Gehan) Robb

Hi-ya leeonarobb,

Just started this genealogy thing and I'm finding it very interesting.
I'm originally a New Galloway boy and was told that somewhere along the line I was related to the Robbs.
My grandmother was Mary Grace McGill and I see in your list that there are various McGills. I think (If I've got it right) that Samuel McGill and Grace Robb may have been my Great-Great Grand parents. Robert McGill (their son) being my Great Grandfather.
I also find it very interesting that "Kenview" is mentioned, firstly with Jessie Mary Cowan and then with Marion Robb in 1954. I knew my Grandfather purchased Kenview in the mid 50s. I myself, lived there from 1972-1987. I was always told that the olde world sink in my bedroom was there because my room used to be the doctors surgery. I knew that the previous owner was a Doctor Cowan. There were old stables on the property as this is how he visited his patients.
Any information on McGills/New Galloway/Kenview would be much appreciated.

Firstly, is Leeona (and Bill) still active here at all? I did not find an sort of PM (personal message) option for her name.

An email address of hers bounced. A 'friend' of hers in another forum I emailed has not yet responded.

I specifically created an account here to contact Leeona as I have information on a common ancestor, Bryce Robb (b. 1803) and Mary Gehan (b. 1910), among others going back to the 1600s.

After I hear back from her, or get another way to contact her, I'll start sharing the information.

My main focus on establishing ancestral origins is to find the appropriate ancestral tartan to use for having a kilt made for myself.

I'm also not fully convinced the Robbs were a sept of the MacFarlanes or Roberts.

From here: http://www.johnbrobb.com/JBR-ROBB-sur.htm

"The clan histories agree that no ROBBs ever constituted a clan, but they also report that groups of ROBBs were attached to several clans as “septs”."
and
"Still, it is worth considering these reported ROBB septs when looking for the Scottish roots of the name, and the two that are most stressed in the clan books are the ROBB septs associated with the clans McFARLANE, and ROBERTSON. The McFARLANE territory lies in northeastern Argyll, at the head of Loch Long, and the ROBERTSON territory begins about 30 miles to the NE of that, in Perthshire. It is said that the troublesome McFARLANEs were outlawed as early as 1608, just in time to participate in the earliest English Crown-sponsored plantations in northern Ireland, and several McFarlanes are known to have been among the major proprietors of these plantations. At least one John Robb was an early tenant in this first Ulster enterprise, and one might imagine others moving NE across CAMPBELL territory to the ROBERTSON lands where they were perhaps more welcome, and forming a sept there. Alternatively, of course, the ROBERTSON association may have been independent of the McFarlane one, as east coast Aberdeen or Angus ROBBs drifted west over the centuries."

Regards,
Flightoffire.
