Surnames: Mularkey Malarkey Milarky Calderwood Wilson
I am having trouble with the Mularkey/Millarky/Malarkey families in Scotland (never mind further back!) Anyone have any ideas. Here's what I know.

In my tree, I have a Margaret Calderwood - Born Greenock c1844. No one has been able to find a birth record, but her wedding cert (to Henry Wilson b. 1837 in Pt. Glasgow) had her parents as: Robert Calderwood and Margaret MULAKIE. Margaret Calderwood (Wilson)'s death cert (d. 10 Oct 1931 in Greenock/Pt. Glasgow) has her mother's maiden name as MULARKEY (as best I can make out).

Also, regarding her mother (Greenock Telegraph 8.1.1877): CALDERWOOD, Margaret Milarky, widow of Robert Calderwood, died at 23 Market St., Greenock on 8th Jan 1877 (Greenock Telegraph 8.1.1877) The death cert for her was signed by her son Edward Calderwood (this would be Margaret's brother). Someone has checked the census returns for them and not been able to find a trace of any Calderwood family with both Edward and Margaret as children living in Greenock or Port Glasgow even though neither of her folks were noted as "deceased" on the wedding cert.

Hi. I don't know if it is of any help to you but the Malarkey name and all it's variants were very popular in the city of Glasgow from the late 1840's onwards, especially in the East end of the city. I have never come across the Calderwood name in my years of trawling but if I can be of any assistance please contact me...

Gerry.
