Re: James Fitzsimons and Amy Coltart, Kirkcubright, Scotland

Hello Ann

You didn't say which way you were wanting to go.

Going backwards, Amy had at least the following two sisters:

MARGARET COLTART - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Birth: 16 FEB 1872 Balmaclellan, Kirkcudbright, Scotland

JANET COLTART - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Birth: 09 FEB 1871 Balmaclellan, Kirkcudbright, Scotland

These records are from the International Genealogical Index (IGI) at www.familysearch.org This index tends to stop for Scotland at 1875 so Amy was probably born after that.

This is the family on the 1881 Census. Amy was actually born circa 1868 but she was born in England and hasn't been extracted onto the IGI. I also couldn't find the marriage of this couple on the IGI although if you get one of the birth records of the children born in Scotland that will give you the date and place of marriage.

Margaret COLTART        9        F       Balmaclellan, Kirkcudbright, Scotland

The following are children born to John Fitzsimons and Agnes Aitchison:


JAMES FITZSIMONS - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Male Birth: 11 JUL 1858 Kirkcudbright, Kirkcudbright, Scotland

MARION FITZSIMONS - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Birth: 14 JAN 1864 Kirkcudbright, Kirkcudbright, Scotland

JESSIE AGNES FITZSIMONS - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Birth: 29 JUN 1861 Kirkcudbright, Kirkcudbright, Scotland

The 1881 Census:

Barncrosh Cottars House, Tongland, Kircudbright, Scotland
Volume 881 EnumDist 3 Page 6
       Marr       Age       Sex       Birthplace
John FITZSIMONS       M       58        M       Kirkmabreck, Kirkcudbright, Scotland
       Rel:       Head       Occ:       Ag Lab
Agnes FITZSIMONS       M       57        F       Wiston, Lanark, Scotland
       Rel:       Wife       Occ:       Ag Labs Wife
Marion FITZSIMONS               10        F       Twynholm, Kirkcudbright, Scotland
       Rel:       Grd Dau       Occ:       Scholar

The Marion Fitzsimons on this Census would seem to be:

MARION BAIRD FITZSIMONS
Birth: 18 SEP 1870 Twynholm, Kirkcudbright, Scotland
Parents:
Mother: RACHEL FITZSIMONS




This would appear to be James Fitzsimons living as a servant:
