I am looking for any info. about the surname Ballach (or sometimes spelled Ballatch, Balluch, etc.) that came to Nova Scotia from Scotland sometime before 1810.
I have not been able to find much online though I do know it is a somewhat common Scottish name and there are several variants. My 2nd great grandfather was born William Ballatch (as he signed papers) around 1808-1810 in Nova Scotia to parents who were of Scottish origin. That is about all I know....any suggestions or info?
