Looking to knock down a brick wall in Scotland. (George Gill 1827-1911)

George Gill was born and raised in Kintore, Aberdeenshire, Scotland on April 12, 1827, according to two obituaries I have for him. He immigrated to the Eastern Townships of Quebec in 1855 at the age of twenty-seven. I have plenty of documentation about his life in Canada but nothing prior except the 1851 Scottish Census. I would like to find his parents and family in Scotland. Any assistance, even a resource or a direction to try would be helpful.

Thank you

From GROS index: George Gill 18 Apr 1824, Kintore 213/2014, son of George Gill and Mary Allan. Probably on th 1841 census, an ag lab in Kemnay, age 16 (not with his family) FmP.

Could this be him?

Within the actual record the birthday is correct (April 12). It turns out he was christened on the 18th which is the date the index gives. The only thing off is the year.

I will do more research on these parents as this one looks to be the most promising of the three.

Scotlandspeople have 3 birth records for a George Gill born in Aberdeenshire between 1820 and 1830. None fit the date you have, but they may still be worth a look.

Thank you!

I looked into all three much closer. The one mentioned in the comment above has the right birth day in the actual record...just the year is off. I will look into those parent and come at it from that angle to see if I can confirm it.

I very much appreciate the resource help.
Good luck. Hope you find your man.
