Just a quick note to Gadget I live local to this area  and I think you will find the Queensferry you refer to is on the river Dee   Flintshire not the Mersey which would also make more sense  of travelling to Bala area in N wales
McCcoskry, Coskry,Copland, Rigg, McGinn,Agnew,Crone, Sw/Scotland
Kirkcudbrghtshire , Wigtownshire, Dumfrieshire

Thanks, Druid. 

My error - I was born and grew up in North Wales so I knew where Queensferry was. I got he wrong river  ;D

The letter (written 1833-4) said that they landed at Liverpool and then crossed at Kingsferry (as it was then).

If it hadn't been for that journey, I wouldn't exist - my Scots ancestors married  into Welsh families  :D
