An Armour saying hello

Postby rarmour » Mon Apr 09, 2007 12:13 pm

Hello, my name is Ron Armour and my great grandfather was Richard Armour (1853-1935) from Campbeltown. Richard was the chief engineer of the SS Davaar and in 1891 lived at Broom Cottage in saddell street. His wife was Agnes Robertson daughter of David Robertson and Euphemia Mcmillan. The Armour family left Campbeltown for Glasgow around 1895. Two of his daughters emmigrated to Montreal, one of which married Robert Hunter.

Looking forward to finding out more about them. Other names in the family are Turner, Langlands, Greenlees.

Hello,
One of my family Names is Turner and they came from Campbeltown. The first Turner that I know of lived there at end of 18c. I have found a birth of a Robert in 1784.
I also have a Greelees in my family born at end of 18c. My Grandfather was a Turner his wife was very friendly with Armours when she was growing up in Campbeltown. One of my Turners went down to Shropshire about 1850 and settled in Shrewsbury where he died.

Hi, is anyone still around regarding this family?

I'm looking for Margaret Armour, born 29 January 1820 in Campbeltown to Archibald Armour and Margaret Turner.

Alarmingly, I've been flagged to a prison page, but can't find anything that suits.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

Lindsey

Hi Lindsey..., welcome to the Kintyre Forum.

I found the following but unfortunately, nothing much about Margaret.

Father : Archibald Armour 29 Aug 1787 – Killean and Kilchenzie, Argyll.
Mother : Baptism 12 May 1791 – Campbeltown.

Children...

David 18 Feb 1815 – Campbeltown.
Edward 26 Aug 1816 – Campbeltown
Archibald 12 July 1818 – Campbeltown
Margaret 29 Jan 1820 – Campbeltown
Jean 29 July 1821 – Campbeltown
Sarah 26 April 1823 - Campbeltown
Mary 29 Sep 1825 - Campbeltown
Agnes 21 Aug 1827 - Campbeltown
Johanna 29 Sep 1829 - Campbeltown
Rosea 24 Oct 1831 - Campbeltown
Jemima 24 Oct 1831 - Campbeltown

Concerning Margaret..., nothing much except she was baptised on the 2nd Feb 1820. (‘no’ husband)
"Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XYZ7-8XX : accessed 15 May 2014), Margaret Armour, 29 Jan 1820; citing , reference ; FHL microfilm 1041005.

Good luck..., Iain.
