Richard McQuillan born in Ireland about 1830 married Jane Fowler [ born Co Down ? ] in St Margaret's Catholic Church in Ayr in 1853. They lived in Ayrshire and Lanarkshire and a few of them went to Fife.

A warm welcome to TalkingScot ljmacq ! [scotland-flag]

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk provides, on a very quick check, the following references just searching for Richard McQuillan. Scotlandspeople is a fee-based service of the official bmd and census records of Scotland. To view full records, you must set up a pre-paid account.

Search the statutory (civil) registers of births, marriages and deaths in Scotland from 1855 to the present.

https://www.familysearch.org/ is an option which provides a 'free account'. It now requires that you register for a 'free account' which gives you limited access to their records. Be aware that the page also is a gateway to signing up for a 2 week trial for which you must supply your credit card. If you fail to remember to cancel, they will automatically charge your card, and you will have to pay the full annual subscription. So, if at any point you are asked for your card info, you are signing up for a paid subscription.

I've had a quick check on https://www.freecen.org.uk/ but the records that surfaced for Mcquillan seem to all be from England.

The following site also shows some records, but again, this is a pay site, containing British records, so a good number will be English, rather than Scots. https://www.ukcensusonline.com/search/index.php?fn=Rich

Forename Surname Age Occupation County Estimated Year of Birth Place of Birth
1841 - Richard Mcquillin 25 Cotton Weaver Lancashire 1816 Ireland

1851 Only English residents found - ages unsuitable

1861 - Richard Mcquillen 42 Cotton Weaver Lancashire 1819 Ireland

Hope this is of help, rather than being overwhelming.

Frances, I think you must be talking about ancestry.co.uk. I'm pretty sure that familysearch.org is always free.

Cheers,

I see a death on the Scotlandspeople site or a Jane McQuillan, who was previously Fowler, aged 77, in 1913, in Waterside registration area GROS ref 586/2. Assuming that’s the correct Jane Fowler, you should get her parents names from that and it should also tell you whether her husband had pre-deceased her or was still alive.

If you check all the censuses for the couple you might find a place of birth in Ireland, especially from the 1911 census which seemed to produce more specific places of birth than “Ireland.”

I made an incorrect statement regarding familysearch.org, I had entered from Ancestry.com. (*,) Thanks for the correction on that, Sarah [cheers]
