Do you know where in Scotland the children were born, or their names, which might help with a search?
There are lots of John Carr's and Kerr's on Scotlands People.

Ok thanks

Civil Registration began in Scotland in 1855 before that you would need the Old Parish Registers so as already suggested start with family search


wolfdogowner Report 18 Mar 2013 20:40

Oh OK thank you for that

Hi Petra, you'll need to look on Scotland's People

Might be worth a try on FamilySearch first, just in case

I am looking for any information on the above people, I know they were born in Scotland and moved to Durham I am looking for marriage records but I think they were married in Scotland as all their children were born in Scotland
