Search for Information on Thomas Walls

+4 votes
my 2nd great grandfather, Thomas Walls, was born in Ireland around 1929, possibly Antrim. He moved to Scotland (in West Kilbride, Ayrshire in the 1951 Scotland Census). He married Margaret McCourt in Falry, Ayrshire on Jan 14, 1849. Any help in finding further information would be much appreciated.

Which century are we in? It seems a little confused.

Sorry. The birth date should be 1829 and the Census is for 1851. Your message went to my Spam folder for some reason, which explains why I didnt see it earlier.

Margaret McCourt was born in 1827 to James McCourt and Margaret McKindlay. She married Thomas Walls in 1849 (marriage also noted in West Kilbride where Margaret came from). They raised a family in West Kilbride. Thomas died in 1876, there is a monument in the graveyard erected by his sons Thomas and James. I have all the census returns up to Margaret's death in 1900.

I am descended from Margaret's sister Helen (McCourt-207).
