hello to everybody,
I have been reading the list for a little while and find it facinating but am new to this so I dont know if I'm diong this right.
I am looking for information on James Kirkwood b7/7/1824
in Beith. He came to Australia in 1840 but died in 1867 at sea on his way back to Scotland. I dont know where to look
for his death certificate.
Can anyone help me,
thanks, deb (in Australia)

The James Kirkwood b. 1824 probably died in infancy and had a younger brother James b. 1826?

Thanks Bob,
but now I'm even more confused. if James was born
in 1826 he came to Australia when he was 14 years old.
on the ships disposal list he is listed as being 18.
would it have been possible to put his age up by four
years? as far as I can tell he didn't come out with any family. on his son William's birth certificate it states that he was aged'about 40 years' in 1861 when William
was born. is this usual or was he hiding something?
thanks,
deb (australia)

Hi there,

A check of the 1841 Census for Beith reveals no Archibalds but a whole lot of Kirkwoods as under.

Maybe some of these are yours.

Many Thanks Jocelyn,
I don't suppose your Hugh Archibald had a brother John?
John Archibald was born late 1700 we think at Dalry, he is a bit of a mystery. We do know he married Margaret Kirkwood in 1814 in Dalry.
Regards, Ann.

My Hugh ARCHIBALD born 1781 had a brother John born 17
66, but information that I have received from Scotland was "Hugh Archibald came from the Cumbrae (assumption: Isle of Cumbrae off the Ayrshire coast) about 1740 - 1750. He bought Baidlan Farm from Alex ??????. Hugh married Annabel Load and they started farming the Baidlan farm.

They had at least 3 sons. The eldest William born 1762 married Agnes Young and started farming at the Low Baidlan farm. The next son John born 1766 married Elizabeth Pollock in 1795 and they farmed the High Baidlan farm. The youngest Hugh born 1781 married first Jean Wilson in 1814 and farmed Baidland Mains farm. He married his second wife Jean Galston in 1826."

Hope that helps

Jocelyn

Duncan: Do you have access to the 1841 Census for Dalry? I need the ARCHIBALD entries.
Thank you
