Research help
« on: Thursday 09 September 21 07:06 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I am searching for a place/ farm called Unlock in the vicinity of Urquhart, Moray. It was listed as the birthplace of 2 of my ancestors James & George Sharp 1748 & 1750. :)

I've had a look at the original image and the place is UNLOCH.

I wonder if they lived by a loch in Urquart?  I'm not familiar with Scotland so I don't know if that is likely for Urquart.

I wonder if it relates to the Loch Crofts to the east of Urquart??  https://maps.nls.uk/view/75529926#zoom=4&lat=3439&lon=4437&layers=BT

That looks interesting Kay, good find. It may well be that.

William, you may receive more focused and localised help if you include the placename in the topic title and ask a moderator to move it to the Morayshire board. You can amend your post within 24 hours by clicking "Modify". If you want to change it after 24 hours you need to ask a moderator to do it for you.
The title "Research help" is vague and general.
 There's advice on getting the best from RootsChat under "Help" tab.  :)
