Surnames: Gallocher/Richardson/Thomson
I am trying to trace the family of Sarah Thomson Gallocher. She was born in either Eastwood or Thornliebank, Renfrewshire, sometime around 1840-1843 (depending on the source).

Her parents were John Gallocher, a printfield laborer, and Jean (or Jane) Gallocher (nee Thomson). She married David Richardson in Renfrewshire, 14 Feb 1868, and passed away 04 Jun 1922 in Lanarkshire.

The records are fairly consistent from the time of her marriage to her death, but I haven't found anything pre-1868 that I can verify. The surname spelling
varies (Gallocher, Gallacher, etc).

I'd appreciate any information that could be provided. Thanks.

Hi. Not sure if this is part of my family that I'm tracing, Gallocher from N Ireland (County Tyrone) who came to Kirkkudbright. One was Francis Gallocher born 1826 died 1881. His father was Patrick Gallocher, a crofter from County Tyrone, married to Bridget (maiden name unknown). Patrick's grandson was my ancestor born 1845 died 1922 and he moved to Walker in the north east of England, changing his surname to Gallagher. I have a lot of info on the Gallocher family in Kirkcudbright.
All the best
