Regarding the Bible - The bible I have is the bible of Ann Gilmour who married William Hamilton on 24 July 1803 and whose 9th child, George, born 30 August 1837.died 18 March 1888, married Janet Carswell, dob ? died 25 December 1901. The size of this bible indicates to me that she probably carried it at her wedding.
I will be sending to you a copy of the pages of this bible with the wedding and childrens birth details, with typed copy, Copy of the Hamilton part of a tree set of by Wm Hamilton of Niagara Falls several years ago. Th 1st family on it was cleared up by Ann's bible and I made up a new part of the tree ( attached ).
The info you have provided, starting with the 1851 census report, is most interesting for me and will enhance that part of the tree I am building.
Besides a handmade tree, I am also building one on the 'Genes Reunited' web site at ?
I will also attach copies of the Hamilton family of George and Mary (Bruce) Hamilton, and the Holehouse farm house from early last century.( I have to find them in the attic!!! )
All the best for a happy and healthy New Year. John ( Iain ). P.S. Which one are you in the photo?

Farmer Laggan Islay Argyll.Died leaving large estate 7000 pounds which included furniture farm stock implements & over 1580 pounds in the bank.

I also looked at Hugh Stevenson, Laggan's will, but for some reason I can't yet get it printed or saved to anything I can reopen, but the gist was that he left £600 to Jane Dunlop or Ping, married to Albert William Ping, Inland Revenue Officer, Auchtertool, Fife, and as far as I could see the remainder to his wife and daughter margaret. (I hope that John D did not just marry her for her money, I wonder why he wasn't mentioned in the will) Also no mention, as far as I could see of Hugh's Carswell or Stevenson relatives.Johan


Then I went on to look at the Islay Stevensons, one of them, John was married to a Keith. His father was William his mother Robina Simpson (can't find them)
The other was Hugh, and his death in 1884, age 61, confirms his father was Hugh Stevenson and his mother was, yes you have guessed... Margaret Carswell. His nephew John Dunlop was present. Hugh was married to Elizabeth Stewart, and their farm was at Laggan. I haven't copied the documents to you. You can have copies when you visit.
Cheers
Johan
His total estate was actually £7000. As well as what you saw, he had 2 bonds for property in Glasgow for £600 each and £1800 in a Woollen Manaufactures in Tillicoultry, so he was smart.

I think Jane Dunlop would have been John D's sister, I can't understand why John D didn't inherit anything in the will.Johan.\

Dear John,
Thanks for the site, haven't found anything yet, but maybe one day I will.
I went back to the Clydesdale Stud Books, here are 2 entries relating to John Dunlop, perhaps I sent them to you before, sorry, I just find them quite interesting. My mother has said that her great uncle John McKay went to Islay every year when she was young. I wonder if he went horse dealing.
1888 Edition which will interest you:
Mare: Darling of Laggan: light brown, white stripe on face, near hind leg white, foaled 1875. Bred by the late Wm Carswell, Craig of Neilston (Renfrewshire)( He was uncle of Hugh Stevenson): property of (1) Hugh Stevenson, Laggan (2) John Dunlop, Laggan, Islay; Sire Prince of Renfrew, dam by Campsie.
This mare had a colt in June 1885 King of the Isles, breeders, J Dunlop; H Brackenridge; T McLaughlan, Brussels, Ont.
Also an entry in 1890 edition which reads:
Stallion: Hopetoun Lad, light bay, white star on face, little white on pastern. Foaled (born) July 1886.
Bred by John Fleming, Old Crookston, Hurlet, Paisley (about a mile from Barrhead).
Property of John Dunlop, Laggan, Bowmore, Islay.
Sire, Lord Hopetoun, Dam (mother) Maggie of Crookston, by Prince of Renfrew.
I had hoped to connect to that John Fleming above, but you sent me the 1881 Census, so I had to discount that.
Ah well, such is life
Cheers
Johan

Thank you for your e,mail of 14Jan. and thank you for offering to send me a page of the will. I have not received it so far.The reason that young Jean Dunlop has appeared in Hugh's will I can understand. Her whole family all 8, were left orphaned in 1862 in Fenwick.Local Dunlops refused help so their mother Jean Stewart's brother and sister each adopted the two young ones. Jean Dunlop aged 8 and Janet aged 3 went to Islay. Jean went to Laggan Farm to live with her mother,s twin sister now Mrs Eliz.Stevenson and her husband Hugh Stevenson in a very comfortable home. while Janet went to her uncle Alex. Stewart and his childless wife only two miles away in Corrary Farm
Sorry I have taken so long to reply,but I have been rather under the weather with a bronchial cold.
On the mend now I hope.
Regards Sheila.
P.S. Is this name of interest ? Mrs Mckay of Crossmill Farm
Barrhead .

Dear Johan, 19-3-2006
Thankyou for your email on 7th March with regard to old family photographs etc.It maybe a week or two yet before my daughter in Edinburgh has copied and scanned and sharpened them. I refer to the photograph of Hugh Stevenson which is very pale and the 3 portraits which vary in quality. When they come I'll send you two prints of Hugh Stevenson. Do you wish two of each of the Laggan portraits?
The painter of the portraits was Alexander McArthur,son of the local blacksmith in Islay. The portraits were left in the care of the aunt and cousins at the Bakery when the Dunlops emigrated to Canada for my mother who was expected to return to Scotland quite soon to be married but in fact it was eleven long years before she could leave after her mother died.Two of the pictures hung in our parents home all our childhood. My father's family were rather artistic and his brother was a painter so he was always finding fault and criticising these rather large and amateurish works.
Sorry to say there was never any mention of RL Stevenson.
But I did read an article in a paper or magazine some months ago about the RLS family background and I was struck by the mention of some earlier connection with Ayrshire and possibly Neilston area.I wasn;t tempted to start researching back two hundred years. While I have been writing this I got a phone call from Valerie saying that
she would be starting on the photographs this weekend.
When I receive them I will also include as an extra a family tree of the Dunlops/Stevensons so that you can count how many more distant cousins you have in Canada
Sorry, I have often been accused of having a warped sense of humour.
PS.Thank you for the information re -David Stevenson Barrhead. I am beginning to see the connection to my grandmother at last. Best wishes
Sheila.

Did you know that Hugh Stevenson of Laggan was paraplegic for the last four or five years of his life. He fell from his horse one dark night returning home riding across the long 8mile sandy shore to Laggan His dog returned home alone to Laggan and the men set out to find him lying injured, There are more tales about Hugh for another time but judging from his financial success he was a very astute farmer Sheila. 
Stevenson, Hugh (I149)

Dear John,
I have no trace of Robert Kirkwood as being son of Agnes C and Allan K, but on the evidence I have I think he must be. In 1841 census he was with father, Allan, sister Isabella (we know she was daughter of Agnes C) and brother Allan.
In 1851 census he appeared as did brother Allan, and it is the birthplace Dailly (Old Daley) near Girvan which is the biggest clue.
I find all this quite fascinating. I didn't find a birth for young Henry (must have been given that name after his mother's family) Johan.

Robert Kirkwood, flesher married to Mary gray, died 10 May 1874, Barrhead, age 54, father Allan K, farmer Dec'd, mother Agnes K nee Carswell dec'd, informant Henry Kirkwood, son.

Here are my thoughts on Sir Archie's ancestry
Sir Archibald Craig was a successful business man. Why would Tom be asking if he was son of Jean Carswell and Thomas Craig? Would that not have made him the brother of his friend John Craig of Wilmslow? One would think he would have been aware who John’s brother was. It is possible that the writer had mentioned Archibald Craig’s knighthood which was granted in the New Year’s honour list of 1924. It is entirely possible that he was mentioned as a cousin, if my conclusion is correct. Janet Stevenson married James Caldwell in 1814 in Neilston. They had a daughter Laura Mure Caldwell, born Lochwinnoch in 1826. Laura married Andrew Craig in 1854, and they had a son Archibald in 1855. If Janet was indeed daughter of John Stevenson and Jean Wilson, then we have a distant cousin in Sir Archibald Craig LLB, JP.
Let me know what you think

Dear John,
Thanks for the site, haven't found anything yet, but maybe one day I will.
I went back to the Clydesdale Stud Books, here are 2 entries relating to John Dunlop, perhaps I sent them to you before, sorry, I just find them quite interesting. My mother has said that her great uncle John McKay went to Islay every year when she was young. I wonder if he went horse dealing.
1888 Edition which will interest you:
Mare: Darling of Laggan: light brown, white stripe on face, near hind leg white, foaled 1875. Bred by the late Wm Carswell, Craig of Neilston (Renfrewshire)( He was uncle of Hugh Stevenson): property of (1) Hugh Stevenson, Laggan (2) John Dunlop, Laggan, Islay; Sire Prince of Renfrew, dam by Campsie.
This mare had a colt in June 1885 King of the Isles, breeders, J Dunlop; H Brackenridge; T McLaughlan, Brussels, Ont.
Also an entry in 1890 edition which reads:
Stallion: Hopetoun Lad, light bay, white star on face, little white on pastern. Foaled (born) July 1886.
Bred by John Fleming, Old Crookston, Hurlet, Paisley (about a mile from Barrhead).
Property of John Dunlop, Laggan, Bowmore, Islay.
Sire, Lord Hopetoun, Dam (mother) Maggie of Crookston, by Prince of Renfrew.
I had hoped to connect to that John Fleming above, but you sent me the 1881 Census, so I had to discount that.
Ah well, such is life
Cheers
Johan
