Wallace Family of Dunlop/Fenwick/Beith Area
Looking for any family descended from James Wallace born in 1787 at Bowrock and his wife Margaret Gilchrist. This is in order to fill out a family tree my mother started which I am working on expanding.
My Family line descends from his son Thomas Wallace born 1824 at Hapland Muir near Dunlop, who married Margaret Frew in 1857 as registered in Dunlop Parish.
Very interested in expanding the breadth of the tree more than taking it further back so please feel free to get in touch!

Am trying to find out about Elspeth Fraser (known as Eppie) who married John Neil, dont know when or dates of birth, Elspeth was the daughter of Catherine Love's cousin (Catherine was my grandmother). Any help would be much appreciated
I have a death certificate for my great uncle William(died in Irvine) and the informant was Elizabeth A McIntyre (his niece living in Lugton Road, Dunlop). I am trying to tie-in any information on this side of my family tree. Does anyone have any information on Elizabeth. Thanking you in advance.
The Hugh Waterston family farmed around the Dunlop area in the early 1900s then farmed in England during the World War 11 years. Does anyone remember this family?
James Blackwood (c. Sep 1739 in Dunlop Parish) married Martha Stevenson or Stinson (c. Oct 1728 also of Dunlop Parish). I belive James' parents were Thomas Blackwood and Sarah Stell, and Martha's parents were Robert Stevenson and Ann Spier.
I wish to obtain more history of the Blackwoods in Dunlop Parish. My family has a tradition that all boys must include either James or Blackwood as a part of their name. My Great Grand Mother was a Janet Blackwood born Beith 1850 married James Wotherspoon and emmigrated to New Zealand.
Looking for info on ancestors who were the Templehouse Gemmills. Also need info on the branch that went to Thorne Farm, especially father of David Gemmell, married to Margaret Anderson, who I think was also a David.
