==================================

The 1861 Census has three possibles-

Household WALLACE, William 1856 5 M Johnstone Dumfriesshire VIEW N/A
Household WALLACE, William 1855 6 M Parish of Durrisdeer Dumfriesshire VIEW N/A
Household WALLACE, William 1855 6 M Penpont Dumfriesshire VIEW N/A

===================================

If you go to Scotland's People, ther is a Marriage in the County of Dumfries, District of Hutton, Year 1877, that appears to be William and Mary.

You can follow through on that site to VIEW and Download the Scanned IMAGE of the original record.

That will normally give you the names of the respective parents of the bride and groom; and also of others such as Witnesses, who are frequently relatives.

It is the quickest (immediately on-line) and safest way of being sure of the the names of WW's parents.

Assuming that this is the marriage, that will cost you 6 Credits out of 30 Credits, costing UKŁ7 (about US$11), leaving you with approaching 24Credits which can be used similarly for other records.

============================

Once you have the names of his parents, you may or may NOT be able to work further back on SP, inn the Old Parish Registers section - but as you are dependentupon ancient parish registers surviving in to the computer era, you may encounter problems.

In degree, the 1851 and 1841 Censuses may help.

Lunch calls, I'll follow up later.
