Hugh McKinlay

I would appreciate any help on finding birth, marriage and death information for Hugh McKinlay born circa 1820, and his wife Janet McKay. I am, of course, also looking for their parents names, etc. Hugh was a tailor, probably in Orkney and both were alive in 1863 when their son John married.

John McKinlay, born circa 1841 in Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, Scotland & married Barbara Symison.

John's marriage register and his death certificate shows his father to be Hugh McKinlay. On his marriage register his mother is shown as Janet McKay, but on his death certificate his mother is Janet Cockburn. I have been told that the marriage record is more likely true as John would have given the information, whereas on his death certificate at age 69, a son William gave the information. It was quite common for details to be wrong on death certificates as the sons informing the death do not always know or remember grandparents names.

Thank you,

Rae Ellen
