Leonie
This John is my GGGF, son of John Renfrew & Elizabeth Pollock. Robert born 1819 was a brother,also William 1817, Andrew Muir b. 1826 and Christian b. 1821.
John died in 1916 and it seems no one knew his mothers maiden name,but his father was John a farmer. I have not been able to get any further back on this yet. In census's he claimed to be born at Old Kilpatrick.
A bit of research in Edinburgh in June. I discovered that:
Andrew Renfrew married to Agnes Young was the son of William Renfrew and Helen Dunn.
William Renfrew married to Agnes Carmichael was their son.
William & Helen were married in Kilbarchan and had some children in Glasgow and some in Old Kilpatrick.. This I feel is maybe my link.
If you knew Robert's date of death it would help you to find his parents.
Sorry I cannot be of more help
Marion
