Wylie & Morton
Looking for any connections/knowledge of the families of Thomas Wyl(l)ie and Jean Morton, banns were called at Criaigie by Kilmarnock. Jean's father and or grandfather was George Morton who may have been at Skellyhill farm and also Newmilns.
Their children were Jean born Stewarton 1821 who married James Whiteford in Campbeltown in 1849 and they emigrated to Australia in 1852 with their two children, Mary Reid Whiteford and George Whiteford. Jean's siblings were: Margaret, bn 12 Feb 1813, Dunlop; John, bn18 APR 1815, Dunlop; Thomas bn 14 May 1817, Dunlop; David bn 22 June 1819, Stewarton. Margaret married Robert KERR (i) b.1808, m. 25 May 1837(?). Children: Jane b. 1838; Margaret x. 31 May 1840; Mary x. 24 Jul 1842; Robert (ii) b. 16 Nov 1844 m. Elizabeth HAMILTON. Elizabeth HAMILTON b. 1845 d. 16 Jun 1888; Janet x. 18 Apr 1847 m. Archibald GRAY 23 Dec 1875 d. 21 Sep 1935. Archibald GRAY b. 01 Jan 1841 d. 22 Apr 1918 (second wife). John b. 02 Sep 1849; James x. 01 Mar 1852 m. Janet ????? before 1881; Elizabeth x. 25 Jun 1854; Robert (ii) and Elizabeth HAMILTON Children: James b. 1866 d. 5 Jan 1896; Elizabeth b. 1869; Robert (iii) b. 1872; Mary b. 1875 d. 04 Jul 1885; John b. 1878 d. 04 Jul 1885. Thomas Wyl(l)ie farmed at or was associated with Skellyhill (Darvall), Caddle Park or Farm at Ardrossan, and East Muirsheil Farm.
