Dave's Ancestors in Scotland

Places in Scotland where Dave's ancestors lived


The only direct links I have found to Scotland are via the McGuinness family. Edward McGuiness left Scotland in the 1830s and moved to Manchester before moving further south to the Midlands.

However, James Wilson and some of his family were found to have visited Ayr for a while in 1881.
