McMaster, Agnew
looking for McMaster family. John and Margaret Agnew were born and married in Down Ireland. Children were born in Stranraer Scotland - Andrew 1778, John 1780, Janet 1782 and Hugh 1787. Hugh died 1827, he was a plasterer according to Poor Law records of his son Hugh B: 1813. All research avenues are drawing a blank, anyone else chasing McMasters with any information ??
looking for William ROBERTSON and wife Margaret KING, married 1795 Paisley. I think there was only a daughter Margaret b. 1801 who married David JAMIESON. Would like to know where they lived and ancestors of William and Margaret. Many Thanks
looking for descendants of John McMASTER b. 1844. Father John, Mother Janet JAMIESON Married Margaret Caldwell McAUSLAND in 1870 Paisley Renfrewshire. Margaret was born in 1848 to Robert and Helen McAUSLAND. Children were Robert b. 1870, Helen Harvey 1872 and Mary 1874. None of these are showing up on census records in Scotland or England, other details are also scarce. Any help would be appreciated
red mail HOLM, Margaret, married with BARR, John.
Dau Jean was baptised in 1761 Father: John Barr Mother: Margaret Holm Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland D: Unknown, Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. Jean would marry SCLATTER, John, and their children would be Martha Sclater 1777 Jean Slater 1779 Mathew Slater 1781 Wallace Slater 1783 Margaret Slater 1784 Elizabeth Slater 1786 David Slater 1788 John Slater 1790 David Slater 1792 Martha would marry Gavin Hamilton 1773 died 5 January 1837. HOLM, Margaret, does seem to have been daughter to William, 25 Oct 1730  Kilmacolm,Renfrew,Scotland a HOLM Margaret dau to William was baptised; am not sure as to the distance separating Kilmacolm and Paisley, and thus not sure whether Holm is the right Margaret, although the dates seem to match reasonably well and a BARR Jean isn't baptised to any other person in the local vicinity and era. Does anyone have any idea save as to Margaret's mother- whoever was married to William?
red mail SCLATTER, John, married with CRAIGE, Maren.
Mr John Sclatter married Ms Maren Craige at Abbey Paisley in Paisley, and they had a son David, who would in turn have a son also David, with a GEMMILL, Bessie. Here are the details on the SCLATTER and CRAIGE wedding at Paisley. Name: John Sclatter Gender: Male Marriage Date: 16 Jan 1672 Marriage Place: Abbey Paisley,Renfrew,Scotland Spouse: Maren Craige FHL Film Number: 1041087, 0102048 As yet have no details on who Maren and John were; there's a Marion Craige in Edinburgh who's mother is a Ms Elizabeth Broun, but she doesn't seem likely given the distance and the time period we're talking about, here. As said in another post here, Sclatter would over time become Sclater. Their son would marry a Bessie GEMMILL, the dau to GEMMILL, William, and a WYLIE, Jonet. Their son David would eventually marry PINKERTON, Margaret, and then their son John would have a dau Martha who would marry into HAMILTON. To put it a little more simply: Maren Craige 8th great-grandmother  David Sclatter (1692 - ) son of Maren Craige  David Sclatter (1720 - ) son of David Sclatter  John Sclater (1756 - ) son of David Sclatter  Martha Sclater (1777 - ) daughter of John Sclater  John Hamilton (1801 - ) son of Martha Sclater  Isabella Bell Hamilton (1835 - 1921) daughter of John Hamilton  Lavinia Campbell Mullins (1879 - 1947) daughter of Isabella Bell Hamilton
red mail PINKERTON, Margaret and SCLAT(t)ER, David (1720- death date unknown).
Wonsering whether anybody could locate anything on PINKERTON, Margaret. Already have the records on their children John and Jean. David was the son of David, and have his baptismal record saved already. His mother's maiden was GEMMILL, and it's likely that the correct GEMMILL, a woman with the name Bessie, is the one is the genealogy tree. Thus only require help with the PINKERTON side, please. It's likely that there were John and Jean either as parents or aunt and uncle, given the Scottish traditions, though can't be certain as it didn't alwayd work out like that. Would sincerely appreciate any help you could give, thankyou. Please also note, the surname Sclatter seems to lose a t when Jean comes along, and that's why it's so puzzling with regard to tracing the above people.
At the time of her death in 1959 my great grandmother Rachel Nicholson was living at 8 Wellmeadow Street, Paisley. I believe that her son Roderick may also have lived there as he gave the same address when reporting the death.( When he died in 1977 however, his address was shown as 32, Barterholm Road, Paisley.)Rachel's daughter Kate/Catherine Russell was also living at 8, Wellmeadow Street, at the time of her death in 1970. Her husband Robert Miller Russell had died in 1965 also at 8 Wellmeadow Street. I am desperate for any information that anyone may have in regard to any of these people, or any children. My father grew up not knowing that he had living relatives in Scotland. His own father moved to England circa 1934. Can anyone out there help at all?
red mail Renfrew family circa 1783
I am researching Jean Renfrew, my great great great grandmother who married John McFadyen (my line) in the High Church, Paisley in September 1806. I know she was born on 27 Aug 1783 and christened the following day in the Low Church, Paisley. Her parents were James and Margaret (Stewart) Renfrew.
