My original search was to find my great grandfather's family (Robert Kerr, mother Margaret McPhillimy, father George Kerr) but I never found evidence of his birth, nor of his mother and father's marriage. I therefore had to branch out into other parts of the family. I did eventually find his death certificate and Oh what a busy man he was - first wife Sarah Cooper, second wife Jane Cock (my great grandmother), third wife Mary Frame and fourth wife Margaret ?

Margaret's mother and father were Samuel McFilimy and Isabella Forrest. Samuel was from Ireland and I have never found any early information about him except that he was born in 1804. Isabella Forrest's parents were John Forrest and Isabel McKendrick. Isabella was born in 1799 (Kingsonsknowe) and died in the same district in 1886. She looked after Robert and his various cousins after their parents seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth.
