Hi Dawn Thank you so much for all your hard work, I really hope they were James's parents, I suppose I would have to find James jnrs Death cert as it does not show names of Parents on his Marriage Cert. Thank you once again Regards Mary

HEATHER HAZELMAN Hi Heather Found David and Margaret's marriage but no parents listed. You would have to get someone to have a look on Scotland's People for you to see if they can find marriage cert to confirm this. Did find a birth record for a David with those parents, have included it in case it turns out to be your man. Couldn't find a marriage record between George and Agnes but did find a number of other children, all born in Ecclesmachan. DAVID GRANT, b 9 Jan 1826, Ecclesmachan, West Lothian, Father GEORGE GRANT, Mother AGNES SMITH JANET, b 29 Oct 1807 GIDEON, b 31 Jul 1809 MARY, b 20 Apr 1812 JOHN, b 1 Mar 1815 ROBERT, b 10 Nov 1816 HENRY, b 27 Sep 1818 AGNES, b 29 Dec 1820 GEORGE, b 19 May 1823 Hope the info helps.

Hi Dawn I would be really grateful if you could help with the McClymonts from Wigtownshire I have managed to get back to Andrew McClymont who married Elizabeth Mc Nellie (or McNeilly) but have no dates for them and do not know any of their parents or siblings. Their son was Samuel McClymont born c1838, died 1913. I know his wife and children but not any of his siblings. I have already posted a reply to someone offering BIVRI lookups and they had no luck so if yours is the same area then I am sorry to have wasted your time with this query. Hope all is well with you, thanks in anticipation, Cheers Clare Rockett
