I have been tracing Australian Kibbles in Trove recently and imagine that George A F Kibble of Denman is relevant to you. I am about to engage a professional researcher in Scotland to investigate the 18th century Paisley.Kibble family for me, so if you are still interested I may eventually have something more to tell you.

Update to the above, we now know Sarah Kibble 1812 died prior to 1824, as there was another girl born to James & Mary Ferrier 1824/25 who they also called Sarah. This Sarah married a Richard Black in Carlton Glasgow in 1857.
We have not been able to find death certificates for Margaret & William, however we presume they died prior to 1856 and left no children as there is no mentioned of them in James Kibble Will, when all others were. :-S

What we have found out so far is-
The Parents of James Kibble 1777-1856 (Metal Merchant Glasgow) were Thomas Kibble (writer) and Sarah Martin. They lived in Abbey Paisley, Glasgow Scotland. James Death Certificate confirms this.

Father of Mary Ferrier was William Ferrier who was Born in Scotland 1751 and was a Merchant in Grenada. No more information on him or on her Mother.

James Kibble and Mary Ferrier married 20/12/1801 Middle Church Paisley. Renfrewshire Scotland.
They first lived in Kingston and later Park Place, Paisley, Glasgow. Scotland.

Children of James & Mary:

Should have mentioned on initial post, that James Kibble - Wire & Metal Merchant Glasgow, and wife Mary Ferrier, lived in Paisley Glasgow. James is buried in St. Andrews E. Church Cem. One of their Sons -John, had the Kibble Glass Palace built which is now in the Glasgow Botanical Gardens.
