deciphering a place in Scotland


Active member
hi all
not been here for a few weeks.....been a bit busy but now back to my tracing.....have come across a place that i cannot decipher from the original census and the transcription is wrong......on the 1851 english census.....one of my ancestors, Robert Carlisle, is living in Liverpool but is listed as being born in a place in Scotland called 'Eglipeld'.......i have tried googling it to see if the search would throw up some alternatives.....it did!.....then when ya click on their suggested alternative.....its not known! arghhhhhhh ........

i cannot find a birth or a marriage for Robert Carlisle......i did find one possible marriage on the IGI at St. Nicholas church, Liverpool but im not sure.......and without a maiden name for the wife....i cant go back any further with her either :( ...... definitely need some help!

Its hard trying to find some definite births for this couples children also....especially for their daughter elizabeth who is my direct ancestor as on different census she is listed as being born in liverpool or scotland.....she was born abt 1845 and her husbands name is Joseph Lowe......any help would be greatly appreciated :D
