Hi Guys, I know this is a long shot in the dark but, i've got too try.
I'm trying to trace Walter Hill, born c1816 in Ireland ( not sure where yet ),he came to Scotland and married Margaret Moran born c1820 in Muirkirk, Aryshire on the 30th April 1835.Both died in Edinburgh Walter 1879, Margaret 1885. Walter was employed as a coachman.
They had 7 children that i know of,
1, Helen 1837
2, Rose Ann 1839
3, Agnes 1842
4, Janet 1848
5, Elizabeth 1851
6, Margaret 1860, all born Muirkirk.

7,Walter born 1863. Uphall, West Lothian

Walters parents were Arthur Hill and, Elizabeth Stewart.
Margarets parents were Daniel Moran and, Helen Bryce.
Walter was my gr. gr. gr. grandfather.
Any leads would be welcome .

I got info from a phsyic medium, stating my family tree would go back to Ireland and, there is a connection with a high ranking member of the Orange Order, will be interesting to see if she was correct.
Cheers Iain

Elisabeth dau age 1 month born Carluke
Helen dau age 14 bork Muirkirk
John son age 7 born Carluke
Roosan dau age 11 born Muirkirk
Margaret wife age 31 born Kirkudbright occ sewer
Janet dau age 2 born Auchenleck Ayrshire


This is from Ancestrys transcription as the census image isnt viewable for Scotland.

Found a Walter Hill born Ireland on the 1841 no Margaret with him but there is a family called Moran from Ireland with him, do you want the info?
