From memory, there was an Army camp ( Royal Army Corps of Transport ? ) on the then main road between Kilwinning and Irvine when I was a boy; early-mid 60s or thereabouts. Kilwinning would have been ideally situated for Ma...

Re: CLYDE FISHING BOATS KY569 AND BF510.

I concur thanks. It most certainly appears to be "Sunshine" during wartime service.

EDIT: May I enquire how you came by the photogr...

Re: Request for Census Look Ups

Archibald Robertson's parents were Daniel Robertson and either Lillias or Lillian Duncan. I can't quite read her name. You could check Daniel and Lillias/Lillian's marriage cert. to see who her parents were. If they are the same as Margaret's, let us know and one of us can check the census records ...

Re: Request for Census Look Ups

Excellent ninatoo, many thanks. IF your "????" reads "Shellknowe", then Andrew is most probably one of mine. Their 1857 Marriage Extract, despite recording this as her 2nd marriage, records her surname as DUNCAN only, not "formerly ....." - unusual! Searches of Ancestry and LDS reveal nothing of who...
