Peter Sirus (Cyrus) Campbell of Drymond?
Has anyone heard of a place called Drymond or if that is a known misspelling of Drymen? Also can anyone tell me whether the name Sirus or Cyrus is a name in use around 1830 in Scotland, or could it be a family name or a name derived from a Scots word? Any information would be of use I think. I've reached a dead end on my great great grandfather Peter Cyrus Campbell who emigrated to Australia as a miner in 1853, then moved with his wife and young family to mine in New Zealand, but was eventually felled by a stone that fell down a mine-shaft, ricocheted off the side of the shaft, and hit him on the temple whereupon he fell down stone cold dead. I had always heard of this legendary demise and having confirmed it to be true, it would be sad to lose track of him. :)
