Knox/Barclay, Beith
« on: Tuesday 30 July 13 16:21 BST (UK) »
Hi folks,

is anyone researching Knox or Barclay in Beith?  I seem to now have a brick wall and I think I'll struggle to get any further.

I have the marriage of John Knox and Elizabeth Barcly (my g.g.g.g.g.grandparents), 25th November 1797 in Beith and having the following children:

Janet born on 7th October 1798 in Beith.
William born on 21st December 1800 in Beith.
Jean born on 8th December 1802, Christened on 12th Dec 1802 in Beith.
Elizabeth born on 18th May 1804, Christened on 27th May 1804 in Beith.
Fulton (g.g.g.g.grandfather) born on 14th February 1810, Christened on 18th February 1810 in Beith.

Can anyone take this back any further or even provide more details on what I have (births/deaths).  Also any idea if this family is anything to do with the Knox Mill in Kilbirnie?

Thanks

I know this is an old post but I've just joined and I have Knox from Ayrshire.  George Knox b. around 1816- some records say Lanarkshire  some do not --it varies. I probably don't have the correct birth.  He married Agnes Boyd in 1836 having numerous children including my G Grandfather William Knox b. 1861, Kilburnie .  I have George's death as 1897 Bank St. Kilburnie.
Their other children are:
Thomas 1836-another Thomas 1851
Jean     1838-another Jean 1848
Andrew  1841
George  1853
John 1856-another John 1858

I do have a good amount of info on the children but am looking for George the father's birth and parents.    I too wonder if they are related to the Knox mill.

Hello,

Are there any of my long-lost relatives still out there?? Jet Carson? I have also traced my tree back to John Knox and Elizabeth Barclay, married 1797. My line descends down via Fulton, then Robert, then to his daughter Maggie who then married a Robert Dawson. They were my g.g.granparents. Amazing. I would be very grateful if the posters above could share the knowledge they have about the Knox family. I can't get further back than 1797 but that's pretty good going!


With High hopes and kind regards,
Elizabeth
