McKnoe/Mcnoe family of New Abbey
« on: Sunday 03 May 20 10:59 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find out anything about this family prior to 1830 when they migrated to Australia.  JOSEPH WILLIAM McKNOE (baptised 1798 at New Abbey to parents William Mcnoe and Janet Maxwell) He went to West Australia in 1830 with his wife Elizabeth and two children (William b 1825 and Jessie b 1828) apparently one of four labourers sponsored by Thomas Peel. I know it's before official registrations started but I'm hoping to unearth a marriage between Joseph William McKnoe and Elizabeth. 
On a document entitled "Friends of Battye Library", Elizabeth's name is given as (?Howe). Many family trees have her as being born about 1808 in Carlisle Cumberland (parents Joseph Howe and Jane Irving).
However it has occurred to me that (?Howe) just might be a misinterpretation of McKnoe or McKnow. A marriage record would prove what Elizabeth's surname was - if one can be found!

Black has this as MacNoah, a very rare Galloway surname. Origin, Noah the abbot of Kingarth in Bute d.789. Several noted in Dumfries, McNoe, McKnoe, M'Noe & a James M'Noah in Barsalloch, Wigton, 1790. Trotter in his "Galloway Gossip!" doesn't list this name at all.

Bests,
Skoosh.

The New Abbey MIs have a few M*No* listed. Do you have anything on Joseph's ancestors?

Sorry - I see you have his parents ! I'll do some more checks.

The above was the licence. The parish entry has them marrying 13 July 1825. Joseph is described as a Sojourner (i.e. temporary resident). Both signed. Witnesses were John Barrow and John Harper.

I'll check for chldren's baptisms.
