I'm looking for ancestors of Porteous family

Query by Ailsie

I have a William Porteous (b. 1843). He was a Shepherd, who married Elizabeth Telfer (b. 1840) Date of marriage was 1 June 1866 and was presumably in Ayrshire, Scotland. I am looking for ancestors of this couple - I'm a bit stuck tracing this side of the family. I would appreciate any help.

Regards

The best place is Scotlands People site, it is a pay to view.

scotlandspeople.gov.uk

It looks like they were married in Dumfries not Ayrshire, this is a list of the record to view it costs 5 credits, it will give you their ages, occupations, addresses, parents names etc.

Do you know any details of William & Elizabeth, occupation, where they lived, children etc.
