red mail Margaret Sharp(e) - (Bowling - Dunbartonshire)
i am searching for information on a Margaret Sharp(e) who married a Hugh Barr and had a daughter Margaret Barr. Any information would be greatly appreciated
red mail Woodside - (Cardross - Dunbartonshire)
My mother Helen Norris(daughter of Janet Nicol(Bain)and Walter Norris) was born in Cardross in 1921. Her address is given as Woodside, Cardross. Have visited but unable to find this house, post office had no idea. Does anyone know where this house was?
red mail McGowan Cardross - (Cardross - Dunbartonshire)
Does anyone have any information about family of a Malcolm McGowan who lived in Cardross Dumbartonshire and would have been a young man about 1900
red mail Searching for Henry Arthur Potts - (Cardross - Dunbartonshire)
My paternal grandfather was Henry Arthur Potts from Cardross. My father (born in 1921) never knew him but he was given his name. I would be interested in finding out if I had any living descendants of this man.
Searching for information on the Davie family - (Cardross - Dunbartonshire)
I am looking for details of Humphrey Davie's family. He was born to Alexander Davie and Elizabeth Fraser at Villa Field, Cardross, on 15/08/1842. In the 1851 Census he is staying with his uncle Humphrey Davie at Geilston Brae House, Cardross. In 1861 census he is a lodger in Virginia Street, Glasgow, but his occupation is unclear on the form. I then found his marriage to Jane White in Hackney, London on 25th February 1866. They had 3 children - Alexander John, Mary Hadley Fraser, and Humphrey, and lived there until Jane's death in 1872, whereupon he eventually returned to Scotland, as a travelling salesman, which presumably is how he came to meet his second wife Mary Flett in Wick. I have traced him from 1879 onwards to his death in Glasgow on 15/12/1915. He certainly moved around, as he married in Wick in 1879, then moved around Glasgow, having various occupations. I know that there were butchers in Cardross called Davie, and I wonder if there is any connection, as in the 1891 census his occupation is cattle salesman's clerk. Any information on him and any ancestors would be appreciated.
red mail Andersons of Knockderry, Cove, and Auchengower, Cove - (Cove - Dunbartonshire)
Knockderry House, now Knockderry House Hotel. The current owners tell me that an Anderson descendant visited them in about 2004 & gave them photos which are now on the hotel website. I would love to make contact with him. The first owner was David Anderson (1793-1879). His wife was Anne Blyth, sister of my great-greatgrandfather. He bought (or built) Knockderry House in 1846 as a summer residence. His main residence was in Glasgow. His son, John Anderson (1827-1911), inherited Knockderry in 1879 & extended it in 1897. His main residence was in Park Circus, Glasgow. 1881 census - 3 children of John Anderson & Jessie Harvie were at Knockderry, with 2 servants, while their parents were at 3 Park Circus. He had two sons, David Blyth Anderson (1872-1944) and A (Alexander) Harvie Anderson (1873-1939). I'm fairly sure DBA was the elder brother, and I don't know how he ended up at Auchengower rather than Knockderry. A. Harvie Anderson and some of his seven sisters lived at Knockderry - by 1904 he was listed at this address. He is in telephone directories to 1938. The Misses Anderson were still there in 1940. Ida Katherine Anderson & Norah V Anderson both had some art exhibited (several mentions on the web). I am also interested to know about Auchengower (built in 1850?) My greatgrandfather Blyth & his family spent 6 months there in 1895 and again in 1896, but I don't know who owned it then. David Blyth Anderson was living there by 1926. Any information would be very welcome, thankyou.

red mail Kean/Kane - (Duntocher - Dunbartonshire)
My great grandfather, Samuel Harkin,was married to Sarah Kean/Kane.They lived in Duntocher. I have been unable to find Sarah on any census before the marriage, and am unsure as to what her name really is. I have found who I assume is their son, my grandfather, James as 'grandson' to Henry Kean as a three year old, in the 1881 census, but had previously been informed that her (Sarah's) maiden surname was Kane. It is all very confusing! Can anyone help, Please?
red mail McDonald - (Garelochhead - Dunbartonshire)

red mail Margaret Houston Browning was my maternal grandmother - (Gartocharn - Dunbartonshire)
'granma' (my great granma) raised my father (Duncan McFarlane born 1925) from the age of 3, in her wee cottage (Blairannaich) until he went out to work as a young lad with the forestry, and then conscripted down the mines in Yorkshire during World War II (one of "the Bevin Boys" as they called them for the politician who came up with the scheme). My mother, Catherine Browning, was evacuated to her granma's cottage at the age of 12 (1940), went to the village school, then Alexandria Academy, and then "into service" in 3 of the big houses nearby, including Ross Priory. Granma's husband, Guy Browning, went ahead to Canada to make a new life for himself, his wife and children (in the face of dire poverty and more children if he stayed) but in the meantime she changed her religion. She never followed him and he grew a second family out in Canada. Turned out, both a McFarlane and a Browning of these respective families (the previous generation to my mum and dad), my great granma's generation, went to Canada and made a life there.
Lyon - Hardgate - (Hardgate - Dunbartonshire)

Frederick Hope Pattison - (Mountblow - Dunbartonshire)
Frederick Hope Pattison (late of the 33rd Regiment of Foot), Widower of Janet Park, died 22nd April, 1875 in Mountblow. I believe he was born in Paisley, Renfrewshire about 1790. He fought at Quatre Bras & Waterloo and accompanied his regimentto Paris during the subsequent occupation. He retired as a Lieutenant on half pay on 18th March 1821. In 1868, more than 50 years after the battles, he recorded his memories in a series of letters to his grandchildren. In 1870 he published them ina book. My Grandfather was named after this gentleman, and I have no idea why? Frederick Hope Pattison STIRLING was born in Aug 1894. His parents were Robert STIRLING and Martha HART who married in 1885 in Bridgeston, Glasgow. Martha's father, Walter, was born in Old Kirkpatrick. Mountblow was near Old Kirkpatrick Railway Station so this may give a clue to the connection. Can anybody help.

red mail Cumming- Twins or name change? - (Rosneath - Dunbartonshire)
I have a curly problem in that I (well with lots of assistance from newly found family members)have traced back to a Walter Cumming, Rosneath, born about 1665, who had a son Patrick in about 1696. He married Mary McFarlane and they had a son Patrick in 1731. Patrick jnr married Janet Crawford and they had at least 10 children. I have record of Thomas being born in 1772, but after that no more record of him, until I came across a distant relative who has an Andrew with the same birth details and parentage as Thomas. I cannot find any official records of Andrews birth or baptism, with my relative's info coming I believe from family letters and alike. I can find marriage and death certs though. On the other hand I cannot find any further information on Thomas, apart from the Could they have been twins? Could Thomas have become Andrew between birth and marriage? Any educated suggestions (even wild guesses at this stage) would be welcome. Everything else fits except the name. Twins definately run in the family, but then there should be a record. I know there is probably no definative way to solve this, but I wonder what an experience genealogist would do? Thanks.
