Hi Tom

I've been out most of the day.

What I've found for you so far from Balmaclellan MIs:

imo Edward Lorimer d. St Johns Dalry 28.11. 1846, 74, w. Cath Dalziel d. St john's Dalry 8.12.1858. 82. da Cath d. High Wycombe, Bucks 21.7.1844, 29, s George, farmer Kirkland Dalry, d. 24.1.1876, 73 (wife Margt Lorimer 29.11.1868, 62, s. George d. Kirkland 14.3. 1850, 5 yrs, s. George d. Ryton, near Newcastle on Tyne, 7.7. 1859, 22) 

Only one Shaw but doesn't fit your family.

From the 1792 Balmaclellan census - limited but of some use:

No Shaws at any of the Parkrobin farms (9 in all)

Barnshalloch, Farm 2
Samuel Shaw, 42
Janet Gibson, 30 (prob. his wife - all spouses seemed to be listed by mn)
William Shaw, 10
Samuel Shaw, 6
Ann Smith, 60

Arnmacannie Farm 1
John Shaw, 49
Janet haining, 35
David Shaw, 22
Barbara Shaw, 20
William Shaw, 18
James Shaw, 16
Mary Shaw, 14
John Shaw, 12
Margaret Shaw, 2

There are quite a few other MI booklets and names for me to check up on - will get back.

I did a check of High Wycombe in 1841

At Chipping Wycombe, found

William Shaw, born Scotland, draper
Catherine Shaw, born, Scotland
Catherine born 1839, Buckinghamshire
Margaret, born 1840.

Checked FreeBMD
Sarah Shaw born 1841
Edward Shaw, born 1844  All at Wycombe

Catherine may have died in childbirth with Edward.

Looks like my lot :-)

Success  ;D That certainly looks like them, further aided by the name of the second born daughter, Margaret.

According to Freebmd, a Catherine Shaw died September quarter 1845 at Wycombe.

Now to trace William and children to Canada.

Think I've corrected the spacing (and spelling) now - was typing into Notepad and it gets the format wrong sometimes!

Will take a break now while Tom digests this!
