Rae shipping family Kirkcudbright 1800s
« on: Wednesday 28 November 18 06:09 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information on the Rae shipping family Kirkcudbright/Liverpool in early 1800s.  What is their relationship to Alexander Rae, Vintner/Innkeeper Kirkcudbright who migrated to Australia in 1854 with his daughter Jane Rae, married to William Kerr, and their children.  Any information on William Kerr, born Minnigaff, and Rae family members welcome.  I am descended from William Kerr and Jane Rae.

About 30 entries for that surname born Scotland living in Liverpool.  No names or birth years given in your post as to which particular Rae's you are referring to so how can any connection be established to Alexander?

This seems to be the 1851 entry for Alexander - all b Kirkcudbright

William Kerr 37 joiner b Minigaff
Jane  34
John  10
Elizabeth 7
Alexander B  5
William  4
Gorden  1
Alexander Rae    71 father in law annuitant
Hugh Coltart    20 apprentice
Sarah Henny    25 servant
Mary Beek    16 servant
Source Citation
Kirkcudbright ED1 Page 19 Line 15

In 1841 - Alexander is an Innkeeper

Why do you think there is a connection?  You need to supply more information

Just to add that the Kirkcudbright-Liverpool sea route seems to be quite busy. When I was researching my KKD families, it cropped up quite often. Aparently the stone from a quarry near Creetown was used to build one of the quays in Liverpool.

My 2x greats travelled that route  to get, eventually, to Ruabon in Wales.
