William McClimont and Ann Irvine, Ayrshire, 1860s
I have William McClimont who was born in Drumdonnel, Co Down, Ireland July 1835 His parents were Samuel McClimon/McClimont and Martha Campbell
He married Ann Irvine in the Ballyroney Presbyterian Church in Ballyroney, County Down on 25 July 1856. She may have been recorded as Agnes Ervine for her marriage.
Ann was born in Shanaghan, Co Down, Ireland 26 June 1837, the daughter of John Irvine, a farmer, and Jane Hunter.
Before 1860 William and Ann moved to Dalry, Ayrshire, Scotland, where the families may have been from, and had children:
William b bef 1860, (may have been born in Ireland)
Samuel b New Street, Dalry, Ayrshire 11 Oct 1860,
Eliza b Kirk Close, Dalry, Ayrshire 2 Sept 1862
William worked in Dalry, Ayrshire as an iron miner until abt March 1863 when the family immigrated to New Zealand in on the Metropolis.
Does anyone know this McClimont family? or the Irvine family? Or the Hunters?
