    Can anyone tell me..are the Ayrshire McNaughtons related to the Perthshire ones? I’ve got back to the 1780s in Ayrshire, with John McNaughton and Ann Stevenson, but can’t find a definite link to his parents in Ayrshire.

    Also can you tell me anything about the Finlay McNaughton who died aged 77 in 1968 and is buried in Blackford Graveyard, along with his wife Jessie Ann Crerar and their son Alexander F. ?

    I’ve not been doing this genealogy thing too long, and am probably missing something obvious! It’s very addictive though :Happy:

    Thanks

    While searching for McNaughtons born in Glenlyon, I’ve found some living at Muirkirk in Ayrshire during the 1871 census.

    I found Donald McNaughton, a Retired Farmer living at Garron Hill, Muirkirk, Ayrshire, aged 88 (estimated birth – abt. 1783) Head of the household – born Kilton, Perthshire. I have been unable to a Kilton in Perthshire. As there’s some odd spelling in these records, this could possibly be “Killin”). Others in the household were Christina McNaughton his wife, aged 69 born at Weem and granddaughter, Janet McNaughton aged 9 years born at Falkirk, Stirling.

    Thanks very much. That gives me another useful line of enquiry.

    I know that when the railways began to present opportunites as employers, the family moved away from coal mining in Ayr to the railways in the Falkirk area, so I presume there must have been some relatives living around there, so it’s very useful to find that granddaughter Janet was born in that area.

    Thanks for the leads.
