Can anyone advise if there is a site showing the parishes of Scotland in the 19thC. From GRO searches I find parishes listed of my likely ancestors but sites like Genuki do not list some of them and some maps do not show parishes.

Google found this scotlands family.
I would doubt the parish boundaries have changed much since 19C but honestly don't know.

Thanks for the link Mary, but I could not find a parish of Stitchel & Hume. Any suggestions?

Mary, disregard my last post I have been able to located the parishes via a google search. Thanks for your help.

I have one Cairns from Stitchill in my file - any connection?

Mary, no Cairns.My puzzle is the marriage of John Turnbull. One of the likely dates throws up a marriage to a Margaret McLean in the parish of Sitchel and Hume 17/12/1823. The date is really a bit late as the one I am looking for had a daughter born about 1821. The location is within the ball park ( I hadn't a clue where it was ) as the parishes of Duns and Fogo are likely. However Fogo is a bit late date wise and there seems to be nothing listed in OPR for Duns for the period. My brick wall is getting higher and thicker. Thanks for your input.
