Daniel Moran, Ireland/ Ayrshire

Hi Guys,
Needing a little help with this brick wall. My great grandfather x4 Daniel Moran born in Ireland around about 1791. He married a Helen Bryce also born in Ireland around 1800.
In the 1841 census they lived in Garrenhill, Muirkirk, Ayrshire. And the name was spelt Morn. Their children were Agnes, 20 Ireland, Catherine, 15 Ireland, Susan 10, Ireland. They also had my great grandmother x3 Margaret who i know married a Walter Hill in 1835,Muirkirk, Ayrshire ( Walter was also born in Ireland ). But, in the 1851 census Margaret was down as born in Kirkcudbright, she was born around 1820 before or just after Agnes. Margaret and Walter were living in Carluke, Lanarkshire at that time.
The surname has various spellings Moran, Morran, Morn and Morrian. I cannot find anything else on Daniel and Helen.
Not sure if this should have been posted in the Scottish roots section.
Cheers Iain :)
