Hi Monica, wasn't Arran part of Buteshire. Or were they born on the Isle of Bute.

Archibald had died by 1851?

Margaret Stewart 55, Farmer N K Acres
Margaret Stewart 16
Alexander Stewart 11

Address: South Kiscadale, Kilbride

Monica

Added: Hi George  :) Yes, Isle of Arran was part of Buteshire. They show in 1851 as born in Kilbride, Buteshire which would be Isle of Arran. The same as their 1841 entry you would say. Buteshire is referred to as Bute on these records.
