Looking for ancestors/information on William Brown and Rebecca Armour
« on: Thursday 17 September 20 01:35 BST (UK) »
A real puzzle, with no information to go on. William and Rebecca are supposedly from Northern Ireland - county unknown. Both were probably born in the late 1700s. They had a daughter, Margaret Brown who was b. around 1819, in Northern Ireland. Sorry for the lack of details, but I'm sadly lacking any additional information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And where did Margaret end up?  Who and where did she marry?  Where did you get her parents' names?

Appreciate it! She married a Thomas McAulay (b. around 1809). Both were born in Northern Ireland, but I have no way to pinpoint where (although likely Antrim). Found parents in SP. Hope you can help!

Scotland's People (they have a database of records). I'm not sure where Rebecca and William lived - that's what I need to find out. As far as Thomas and Margaret go, they settled in Glasgow (various different areas).

Are they Thomas & Margaret in Calton, Glasgow with a son William, and daughter Margaret, and also another Rebecca McKillops.  Both William and Rebecca were born in Ireland. (1861 Scotland Census).

Yep. That's them. :  )  I have all the Scottish information. What I really need is to make a break-through with the Irish records. There's just nothing to go on.
