Irvings originating from Ruthwell, Scotland
I'd like to recognise the help recieved from Julie Reagan who provided details of my ancestor for the Irving family.
My grand mother Hilda Irving was born 1901, she had 5 sisters and 2 brothers Ada 1892, William McDonald 1893, Jessie 1897, Nellie 1898, Lillian 1903 and Frederick 1913.
Hilda's mother and father are William McDonald 1869 born in Liverpool and Georgina Gleadell 06/02/1869 born in Salford. William had a brother Robert 1865 and sister Ada 1873.
Williams parents are Robert McGuffick 11/01/1838 born in Treggiles and Elizabeth Jane Tollitt 06/02/1845. Robert had 3 brothers and two sisters.
Roberts parents are John 1813 born in Ruthwell and Jane McGuffie 1817. John had 6 brothers and 3 sisters.
Johns parents are David 1788 born in Ruthwell and Elizabeth Hall 1802.
Irving is a popular name in Scotland and it is hard to trace ancestors in Scotland. Does any one know how I can trace earlier Irvings?
