I have quite a few records of MI's and an early census of Balmaclellan and although there are Humes and Murrays mentioned there you have not given me anything to go on.  Have you searched for these families on Scotland's people as the records you are searching for are post 1855 when civil registration began?  If you can date these records, please come back to us and we will try to help.

Welcome to Rootschat

Patrick Murray & Agnes Hume only married in 1871 but you show an Agnes Murray b 1862.  Was Patrick previously married? Was Agnes previously married? 

You need to download a copy of the 1871 marriage cert which will give both sets of parents names & mothers maiden names  www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

The 1881 census shows him as Peter.  All b Kirkcudbrightshire except Peter/Patrick.  All children b Balmaclellan

Peter Murray 54 b Ireland
Agnes 46 b Urr
Robert 12 - b
James 7 -
Peter Hume 2 - grandson
Maggie Baird 2 - boarder
ED2/25/25

1871 shows Patrick & Agnes with children Agnes 9 & Robert 3 - both born before the 1871 marriage

I have all the published Balmaclellan records, including a 1790s census as some of my ancestors were from that parish but, as the Murrays were from Ireland, there might be very few records about them in Balmaclellan.
