William Roy
« on: Wednesday 20 April 05 19:55 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace the parents of William Roy born abt 1851 in Saltcoats. Would there be any census that he would be listed on as a child. I have him in the 1881 census as still living in Saltcoats.

Thanks

Hi Allanroy,

If so then you get the parents on the certificate, also his Death.

Hopefully this will reach you after so long.

I don't know if it of any use to you my great-grandfather Patrick MURRAY rescued from drowning at Saltcoats Harbour during mid-September 1900 a William ROY, son of Edward ROY (dynamite worker - would have been employed at Alfred Nobel's Stevenston factory). William was aged approx 11 years (b. circa 1889) and a younger brother was also present.

I understand from postings on other websites that you are interested in Quay Street. In the 1905-1906 Valuation Roll of Quay Street, Saltcoats, there is listed at 16 Quay Street, Saltcoats a Grace
