Board Name: Scotland
Dot McBurnie B.C. Canada Sep 16, 2004
We have reached a brick wall. John McBurnie married Ann Irving, Jan 18, 1824, Maxwellton,Parish of Troqueer Dumfries. The parish record says he was "of Tinwald". He was Captain of the Lord Nelson, and was lost Jan 1, 1839 in the Shannon Estuary, Ireland.He has a Memorial in the Tinwald churchyard. His Children are:
William Dec 11, 1819 Died 1820
William Nov 27, 1824
Helen Oct 12, 1826 Married Thomas Coupland
John Nov 29, 1828 Married Mary Lawson (our line)
Jane/Jean Dec 23, 1831
James Oct 20, 1834 Married Margaret Glover
Thomas Apr 16, 1837 Died 1857
Samuel Jun 11, 1839 Died 1839

Under Scottish naming rules his father should be William and his mother Jane,as Thomas Irving and Helen Holmes are Ann's parents. Can anyone help?
