In 1815 a John Carswell married Ann Finney in Kilmarnock. They had several childrn,on the birth cert. of one the fathers occupation is given as Chinaman. This infers a dealer in porcelain china etc.The problem is I cannot find this John Carswell's ancestory. It is possible he was in the Shropshire Militia and had English origins. The Finneys were very important people in kilmarnock, there is a street named after them. They owned coal mines banks stores and property. Any information on this John Carswell would be appreciated.
