Thomas Munro, born in Inverness about 1750
My 4x great grandfather, Thomas Munro had a child, Helen Munro, with Jean Grant , who was baptised in Inverness in 1782. What I would like to know is when Thomas was born, who his parents were and if he and Jean were married. I am guessing that his birth would be about 1750, give or take 5 years, since Helen was born in 1782. Has anyone any idea where to look for information regarding births before 1837? I cannot find a marriage record or death record for Thomas, either in Scotland or England. Helen died in Yorkshire in the 1840's. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you, Jill.
