Re: Robert Menzies c1829 at Stoneykirk
I am completely up to date from 1841 onwards, but I can't find any of Robert's antecedents.
When he married in 1854 he declared that his father had been called Robert also, but was then deceased.
I've searched Stoneykirk and Kirkmaiden parish records and churchyards without any success.(As you probably know, Statutory Registration in Scotland was introduced much later than in England and Wales and Scottish church records were scanty - marriages were usually recorded; baptisms were sometimes recorded; deaths were never recorded.)
There is one Menzies grave in Stoneykirk churchyard, but is almost certainly not connected (directly?) with my family.
