McCrobert, Thomas

Birth Name McCrobert, Thomas
Gender male


Thomas father of William based on this OPR transcription:

"25 Mar 1721 William McRobert son to Thomas McRobert in Ballaird Kirkinner and Jane McIlmine lawful daughter to John McIlmine in Boathouse of Bladnock in Wigtown intimate their desire of Marriage and after orderly Proc. was Married here on 25th March 1721"

(15) 12 Nov 1724 Hugh Cunninghame in Achingailluy in Mochrum and Margaret McCrobert lawful daughter to Thomas McCrobert in Ballaird in Kirkinner intimate their desire of Marriage and after due Proc. were Married here at Kirkinner on Thursday November 12 1724

Alexander McRobert is the only other McRobert in Wigtown in the 1691 Hearth Tax List besides John McRobert ("Little Aries" and the Machars of Galloway) and he lives on the Cotland Farm next to Bladnoch town, plus, an Alexander McIlmyne is also on the farm.

I've included only McCrobert's in the LDS Parish Records which specifically say Thomas father and also right date range. There may be 2 Thomas McCrobert's as I can't account for this record:
Thomas McCrobert m. ? c Isobell m John Stewart 19 Apr 1711 Kirkinner
4 cases:
First Thomas who married Janet Milmine had children Janet 1704 and Patrick 1739 ?
Second Thomas who married Elizabeth Connen had Janet 1712
Third Thomas and unknown mother had Isobell 1711 and Margaret <1706
Fourth Thomas father of William

The birth of "lawful daughter" Janet in 19 Nov 1704 to Thomas McRobert and Janet Milmine and the marriage of Thomas McRobert to Elizabeth Connen 20 Jun 1704 cannot be the same Thomas McCrobert.

--> Milmine could be McIlmine, related to Janet McIlmine who married Willam McRobert in 1721.

"1 Apr 1712 Thomas McCrobert and Elisabeth Connine in Kilwauch had a lawful daughter born on Friday the 20th of March and Baptised the 1st April called Janet" - probably means they were living on Kirwaugh farm which is 1.4 miles from Bladnoch.
