Kilbirnie - 'local knowledge required' please (ORRs)

Posted: 19 Mar 2008 12:59AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: ORR
I'm looking for any possible connection between 2 families of ORRs in Kilbirnie.
I'd like to find if the ORRs that were at Stoneyholm Farm (now defunct) and the ORRs at West Lochridge Farm were related. It is my understanding that these farms were geographically quite close to each other - would this be the case does anyone know? I've looked on whatever maps I came across but they really didn't help much.

My own connected ORRs who lived at Stoneyholm Farm:-
George ORR was born 1787 in Kilbirnie Ayr
Elizabeth MCEWING born 1791 in Kilbirnie Ayr
there marriage date is 1812 in Kilbirnie

The other ORR family at W. L. included a William Stewart ORR, his son John Brown ORR, around 1857. I'm still trying to get more details of this family.

Thanks for any help.
