    So seeing how the Borlands are being spoken about a bit in the Wilson section (see here), I thought I would put what I have on the Borlands here so as to keep them somewhat separate if that's ok. If not feel free to move or merge or remove it.

    Hugh Borland married Sarah Wilson 5/10/1827 Kilmarnock Ayrshire Scotland.
    Hugh was born 29/7/1798 Irvine Ayrshire Scotland and christened 8/8/1798
    Died 12/4/1870 Schoowell St. Stevenson, Irvine, Ayrshire
    Buried 16/4/1870 Old Parish Church Irvine Ayrshire

    Hugh and Sarah's Children (which Mum has just given me)

    Elizabeth b. 17/11/1828 Kilmarnock
    Alexander b. 8/5/1830 Irvine
    Sarah b. 9/2/1832/ Irvine
    Hugh b. 1839 Irvine d. 18/8/1916 Maryborough VIC
    Mary b. 17/2/1836 Irvine d. 20/10/1885 Maryborough VIC
    Robert b. 1844 Irvine d. 14/3/1922 Northcote Victoria
    John b. 14/2/1847 Dalry
    Martha b. 14/2/1847 Dalry

    Other information Mum has recently provided:
    Mary married a Henry Lunn/Lynn 11/12/1860
    The Sarah who is my line married George Harvie 13/6/1856

    Going back a generation:

    Hugh's father was Alexander Borland
    b. 18/8/1775 Riccarton?? Ayrshire Scotland
    He married Elizabeth Banks 1/7/1793 Irvine
    Their children apart from Hugh were Mary and Alexander

    Going back another generation potentially
    Alexander's parents were Andrew Borland and Elizabeth Larry??

    So I guess I could try and confirm the Andrew and Elizabeth parentage of Alexander.

    But that's about all. Maybe it might help with the connections in the Wilson part.

    Cheers

    Any idea where to start looking to find out exactly when Hugh went back to Scotland? Or has it been mentioned already? Can't see it but that doesn't mean a thing o_O

    I've tried looking but can't find anything. I even looked in the papers on Trove and FMP to see if there was a mention, but nothing came up.

    Family Search has Alexander Borland born 18 August 1775 christened 20 August father Andrew Borland mother Elizabeth LAMY
    From Scotland Births and Baptisms 1564-1950
    That would be Riccarton Ayr.

    I don't think this has been posted before, apologies if it has.....

    Ardrossen and Saltcoats Herald 16th April 1870
    IN MEMORIAM —Hugh Borland, Stevenston, whose death is recorded in our obituary column appears to have had a life sufficiently chequered to warrant a short notice. He was a native of Irvine, where he learned the shoemaking trade and where he married. He removed to Dalry and, after he had a large family born to him, he emigrated to Australia. The climate, however, did not suit his constitution, and alone he returned to his native land. He hoped his wife and family would follow, but they preferred to remain in the new country, where there was wider scope for industry. He settled in Stevenston, and such was the energy of his character, and the frugality with which he husbanded his earnings, that at his death, which occurred this week, it was found he had realised what to many would be a small fortune. He to be buried at Irvine, by his express wish, today.

    H
    Hugh's siblings: Mary born 26th March 1794 and Alexander born 21st March 1796.

    Mary's birthdate makes her conceived before wedding day of parents hmmm...
