If anyone can help with the following, please contact me at audrey@muir76.freeserve.co.uk.

My Grandfather is Robert Muir (born 28/05/00), his parents are Thomas Muir (born 1871 in England) and Charlotte Ann Crowley (born 1870 in England), they married in Dalziel on 18th July 1890, other children born to Thomas and Charlotte are Thomas James (b 09/02/1890), David (b 13/6/1893), Helen or Ellen (b 04/04/1895), John (b 12/05/1897), James Holden Crowley (b 26/05/1898), William (b 1901) all the children were born in Dalziel, Motherwell. Thomas and Charlotte must have moved from England to Dalziel between 1870-1890. Crowley has sometimes been mistaken for Crawley. Unable to locate any marriages or deaths of the above children in Dalziel.

Parents of Thomas (born 1871) are Thomas (b 1834, d 21/02/1881 Dalziel) and Barbara Rutherford (b 16/11/1834 Craighall, Edinburgh, d 20/12/1920 Dalziel), who married in Grangemouth in January 1857 other children born to Thomas and Barbara are Ann Allen (b 1864 Grangemouth), Barbara J (b 1867 England), Elizabeth E (b 1876 England), John (b 14/02/1878 Dalziel), Margaret J (b 1873 England), they might have had another daughter who is named as Mrs Armstrong (b 1860) and was listed as a widow in the 1901 Census, she was living with her mother in Kirk Street, Motherwell, Barbara was running a Boarding House. Thomas and Barbara must have moved from Grangemouth to England between 1864-1867, then moved back to Dalziel before 1878.

Parents of Thomas (born 1834) are William and Ann Allan Muir who married in Hamilton on 21st August 1825, no further details yet.

Parents of Barbara Rutherford are John and Mary (nee Kerr) Rutherford, also no further details.

Ann Allen, daughter of Thomas and Barbara married a William Blunn in 1881.

Professions of some of the above men are Cranedrivers, Boiler Stoker, Iron Worker, Engine Fitter, Coalminer.

I have no ideas where or why they moved from Dalziel to England and from England to Grangemouth.
