I have ancestors from Barr Wood, which I think is an area in Kilsyth Scotland. Let me know if this is a link.

Thanks

William;

Appreciate your response. The town name is actually Barrhead, which is not far from Paisley, and a bit southeast of Glasgow.

Unfortunately not a hit this time, but I do apprecaite your taking the time to respond.

Sincerely,
Jim Baird

Thanks, but I have the family in Barrhead back through 1700. Don't know of any lines in either town. Appreciate the reply!

I am also looking for Baird's from Barrhead. My father was born there and I have a number of Baird lines running back to 1850 from the area.

My lines stem from a Robert Baird and Charlotte Hamilton.

Can anyone help me?

Colin

The 1841 and 1851 census for Barrhead are available for free at East Renfrewshire Council's Portal to the Past web site.

There are very few Bairds on the 1841 census. In 1851 there is one Robert Baird, aged 26, but his birth place is Kilpatrick. There is no Charlotte Baird listed

Thanks for the note. The Robert Baird you mention is my great grandfather. He was born in Old Kikpatrick near Dumbarton in 1826.
