I'm interested in anybody that has information on the "Dumfries"
Shanklands? In particular, John Shankland b 1805, Durisdeer, Dumfries
who married Martha Thomson b 1811, also Durisdeer.
- Hello Willie
My great-great grandmother, Letitia McGregor, was born in the parish of
Minnigaff, Kircudbright, in 1815. Her mother's name was Elizabeth
Shankland. I had not realised that she had been born there until fairly
recently, as her place of birth appears as Dailly, Ayrshire, in several
census documents. I suspect that she moved to Dailly as a small child.
Possibly her mother came from Dailly - there are a number of Shanklands in
that area and in Ayr, where my great-great grandmother lived before she
died. I used to correspond with a couple who ran a "Shankland Society".
They lived at Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, and had quite an extensive database
