Richard BRUCE

Classification: Query
Surnames: Bruce, Parkinson
This is my first venture into Ayrshire. My ancestor was Richard Bruce born about 1812 who married Maria Parkinson approx 1829. I have only just discovered that he may have come from Ayrshire, having previously searched Renfrewshire in vain. The name Hamilton has been carried down over generations as a middle name in this family and I feel is a vital clue in my search for this family's origins. Richard and Maria named their children Margaret, Maria, Ruth Richard Hamilton and Elizabeth. Richard joined the 11th Devonshire Regt of Foot at Paisley in 1831 and travelled with the Regt to far flung places, ending up in Australia, where he died in 1854. I would appreciate any assistance or direction please. Jennifer
