Birkmyre Ancestry Paisley Scotland

This afternoon I am posting a video clip of a memorial stone at Laigh Old Kirk, Paisley.

Birkmyre is a very unusual name, originating in Dumfriesshire. The name means swampy place surrounded by beech trees.

This Carlile family memorial records two Birkmyres:

  • Jane Birkmyre who died June 1803 age 81.
  • Mrs Janet Birkmyre who died May 7 1826 age ?
For more information on this family group see yesterday's blog posting.
