I have just been sent part of the family of Robert Boyd born about 1765 (thought to be in
Irvine, Ayrshire) and his wife Isobel Hamilton born about 1765.
I do not have their marriage date, but as the date of their son’s Robert birth is given as
19 October 1791 in Irvine, Ayrshire, I would expect that they married in late 1780’s.
Robert Boyd, the father, was termed a mariner.
It is know that the son, Robert Boyd was married on 23 Oct 1812 in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire to
Janet Alexander, whose parents were Alexander Alexander and Jean Bryson. In about 1823 he
and Janet and family migrated to West Glover, Vermont and bought a 60 acre farm. Robert
died there on 19 Nov. 1834 and Janet died on 1 April 1837 at Greensboro, VT. At this time
it is not known if any Boyd or Alexander siblings might have also gone to this area of
Robert Boyd shortly after he arrived in 1823 was appointed a Elder of the Craftsbury
[Reformed] Presbyterian Church – suggesting that he was a member of the Reformed Church or
covenanters in Ayrshire.
I am looking for any other children of Robert Boyd and Isobel Hamilton and their origins
