James & Jean WRIGHT

Thanks Geoff.

03/04/1837 WRIGHT JAMES - JEAN MALCOLM FR2283 (FR2283) 564/3 80 319 Greenock Old or West

1851 has Elizabeth born Greenock and 1841 born Largs.

Looks as though James parents should be Peter & Elizabeth.

Jean's are Archibald & Rebecca.

Can't see a marriage in Dumfries that would fit with or without Peter to an Elizabeth/Betty Stewart.

Looking at your tree [Rebecca Wylie]

There is this marriage..
10 359
Newton On Ayr

Yes, rather curious as they were both from Largs.

Marriages 1807 20th Dec Malcome & Wyllie - Archibald Malcome Private in the Ayrshire Militia and Rebecca Wyllie from the Parish of Largs, presently in this Parish, were three times proclaimed in order to marriage on one sabbath, and married on the 21st of said month.

20 Dec 1807 is a Sunday.

No birth/bap found for either Archibald or Rebecca and no marriage found for their parents so both dead ends.

There is a possible connection with a Peter Wright in Dumfries to Agnes who married William.
