Robert Britton - Where in Donegal Did He Come From ?
« on: Thursday 10 January 19 12:49 GMT (UK) »


I have just discovered that my 3 x gg grandfather Robert Britton came from Donegal, circa 1793 ish.
I know he was married to Elizabeth Porter (1st wife) in Ireland and 2nd wife Agnes McMillan in Paisley, Scotland in 1830. His children with Elizabeth were George b.c. 1808, (not sure if natural son) Robert b.c. 1822, Jane, b. 1823 (my 2 x g grandmother) & John b. 1829 all born in Paisley, bar George.
He was a hand loom weaver by trade, and was presbyterian he died in 1859.

His parents were Robert Britton & Dorcas ? Hill.

Can anyone help me with trying to locate where in Donegal he came from ?
