lname: Kiltie Stewart
ancestor: Margaret Courtney
comments: I have the death certificate for my great-g-g-g grandfather Barnard Kilty, date of death 1855 Wigtownshire Scotland. His parents names on this certificate are, Father: Bryon Kilty Mother: Margaret Kilty nee Courtney. Place of birth for Barnard Ireland, unfortunately no county. Barnard would have been born around 1769, as the first marriage for this son of Bryon and Margaret is 1802 in Scotland.
I'm guessing they left Ireland after 1770, but as yet no proof of this as I am still searching for the rest of their children via www.scotlandspeople.gov. A long shot I know, but if there is any proof that a Margaret Courtney married a Kilty/Kelty/ (various spellings for this name) please get in touch, this would be much appreciated.
