Hello.I don't have enough time to offer information this morning, but I'd like to ask if anyone is currently researching MAITLAND's in Ayrshire, Scotland, in the 1800's.
Because of the unexpected death of my cousin this summer, I decided to find out about the family-tree of his father, Robert Todd MAITLAND, b1914 MA.(Uncle by marriage)
After a few weeks of queries and responses, it turns out that Robert's father was also Robert Todd MAITLAND, b1887 in Kilmarnock.But, his father and grandfather, etc., were born in Irvine, Ayrshire, and they seem to have been there since at least 1800.
Robert, b1887, came to Massachusetts in 1909, and married here in 1912.The immigration record stated he was coming to live with his brother, David MAITLAND, and that their father was David MAITLAND.
