Dalry Ayrshire, an appeal...Henney, Hainey, and anything else

Dalry Ayrshire, an appeal...Henney, Hainey, and anything else

I am trying to find my G Gfathers birthplace, which I'm certain is now, "here".

The trouble is there are too many spellings.

Is there anyone out there that can help?

Two addresses swindlees r....and sevendlees road (i think this is the same street), just an error in interpretation.

Hi -

Have you tried the Valuation Rolls? The Burns Centre holds them.

Regards,
Debbie

There is a Swinlees Farm, a listed building http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/sc-1256-swinlees-dal...

Swinlees Road is presumably the road from Dalry to Swinlees!

Valuation Rolls are records of all the properties in Scotland; and each county will hold their own records. The rolls show the name of the tenant, as well as the proprietor, the name of the farm and sometimes, if you're lucky the name of the wife! Will also show how much rent was paid. They came/come out every year - which is good for us family historians as you can see if families moved around in between the censuses.

Sorry, meant to say Burns Centre - which is located in Kilmarnock - http://www.burnsmuseum.org.uk/. Unfortunately, you cannot make copies of them at the Burns but you can at the Carnegie Library in Ayr. If you have an i-pad you can make lots of photos for £5 per day. Probably the same with an i-phone. Unfortunately I don't think I copied any from Dalry....

Debbie, you've given the link for the museum!

This is the one for the Burns Monument family history centre
http://www.burnsmonumentcentre.co.uk/

Have never looked the the valuation rolls. Will have a look next time I'm in.

Kev - what dates have you got for your great grandfather?

Indeed I have! Sorry about that.

You can also get Val. Rolls at ScotlandsPeople but only for 1915 and at a price. They are free to view at the Burns Centre and at Carnegie....

Had a look at the ancestry census transcriptions. Father Thomas born Ireland. Mother presumably deceased between 1848 and 1851, too early for statutory records.

Also had a look for births on family search to no avail.

Best bet would be to get marriage cert of young Thomas to from scotlandspeople.gov.uk
This will give parents' names of both the bride and groom.

There are 4 marriages for Thomas H*ney between 1863 and 1891 in Ayrshire. Search will cost 1 credit and image of cert 5 credits. 30 credits costs £7. Might be an idea to look at originals of the censuses.
