Hi Sandy. I am trying to track down my husbands Armour relatives. I have been told that the Armour name came from Jean Armour Robbie's wife and we have a Robert Burns poetry book possibly signed by him!!
This is what I have:

John? galbreath(I am guessing name John) m Margaret Armour
had son John Galbreath (b abt 1843) m Agnes Parker (b abt 1850) and emigrated to New Zealand. they had a daughter Margaret Armour Galbreath.
I was told that the Galbreaths were friends with the family of Jean Armour (maybe even related!)

Have you come across any info which might unravel this for me?
anyway, thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
Leah Hourston
