Kinnis, 1871 1881 1891
1871 census (GROS 649/00 011/00 024) shows William Kinnis at location 118, aged 44, grain dealer, born Falkland, with wife Ellen (Helen) nee Dykes aged 40 from Kilbride Lanarkshire, and children James (9), William (8), Ellen/Helen (5) and Agnes (2). (Helen's twin David died aged 2 in 1868.) Neighbours to county police constables and their families (Shaw and ?Hamilton) and retired farmer (Callan). Kinnis family children birthplaces indicate a recent move from Cambusnethan where Agnes was born and Bothwell before that. 1881 census (Source: FHL Film 0203695 GRO Ref Volume 649 EnumDist 11 Page 17 ) says Kinnis family in dwellinghouse in Turfholm, head = William (age 54 from Falkland, grain merchant), wife = Helen nee Dykes from E. Kilbride. Eldest son James (age 20) was not present. (He was working as a flour miller, lodging at 6 Grey Row, TIbbermore, Perth: FHL Film 0203515 GRO Ref Volume 395 EnumDist 4 Page 2.) 2nd son William (age 17) was working as assistant. The nine year old son Andrew Dykes was born in Lesmahagow. 1891 census says James Kinnis and wife Helen (Ellen) nee Dykes were living there at Oakbank Farm (#90, page 207?) with children William, Ellen (Helen) and Agnes ages 27, 24, 21. By 1891 James was married to Agnes Law from Carnwath, I think, and living at New Mill, Shotts and working as a miller. William died in 1899, but Helen died in Lesmahagow (at ?Woodside?) in 1922. I am not sure at the moment where she was in 1901 (& 1911). Any photographs or documents would be very welcome, relating to the family or local history.
