I was wondering if anyone out there has looked at the Hearth Tax for Stewarton book put together by Robert H.J. Urquhart and Rob Close, especially at the names of Steill? I have come across some errors (which is bound to happen when transcribing from original Scots handwriting). However, we cannot understand that there was an Alexander Steill in Peacockbank, a John Steill in Crivoch (Crevoch, orig. part of Kennox estate), a Robert Steill in Ronald land (should be Robertland)when the Shiells/Shields were living there and with the same names but are not mentioned at all!
I would love to hear from other people who might have experienced the same; if indeed I am correct it could completely change our tree and others.
