Introduction

The McNaught surname arose in the Kirkcudbright and Dumfries shires in the part of southwest Scotland known as Galloway by dropping the last syllable from the McNaughtan or McNaughton name. The original clan was from Argyll and Perthshire, but after their appearance in Galloway as far back as the thirteenth century, and more or less continuously since then, various branches of the family came eventually to prefer the shorter version of their name. The earliest seat of the family seems to have been Kilquhanity on the Water of Urr west of Dumfries followed by the estates of Dundeugh, Dalwhairn and Dalwhat. The main line died out when the last male heir, John, died in 1738. But, of course, over the years innumerable younger sons spread out from that area and settled wherever they could find a living elsewhere in Scotland.
About ten years ago I began my search for our McNaught ancestry by examining the parish registers of Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland. I had previously found the birth record of our immigrant ancestor Hamilton Brown in that town, and hoped that the ancestry of his mother, Mary McNaught, would also show up in those records. I indeed had little difficulty in finding that she was born in 1771 in Stevenston as the eldest child of James McNaught and Margaret King.
The earliest record of a McNaught in these Stevenston Parochial Registers, the marriage of our James in 1770, occurred well after the beginning of the parish records in 1700. Thus we can infer that the appearance of McNaught there was part of the continual expansion of the family from their original homeland to the southeast. Before that, there is a record of a James McNaught who married Agness McAdam 2 Nov. 1722 in Dalmellington, a town some twenty five miles southeast of Stevenston [McAdams History]. But no connection has as yet been established with the Stevenston line.
At that time I also found another James McNaught and wife Elizabeth Walker in Stevenston who appeared to be contemporaries of our James and Margaret. Then I was contacted in 2007 by a Scottish cousin who suggested that the two James McNaughts were in fact the same man. A thorough analysis and discussion between us then resulted in the conclusion that James had indeed married a second time, and the chlldren he had with Elizabeth were half-siblings to our Mary.
The McNaught families recorded here have for the most part been taken from the Stevenston Parochial Registers, but the connections between generations are based primarily on my assumptions taking into account the ages at birth and marriage. That is, the children of parents are recorded, but those children are inferred as being the same individuals as the parents of the next generation. These are reasonably likely to be correct, but it should be emphasized that few records substantiating three generation connections are available. Where there is any doubt in my mind, a detailed discussion of the possibilities is given.
On 4 Oct 2002 I received a very detailed and complete genealogy, "Descendants of James McNaught" from Margaret Scott, a cousin of ours who was raised in Stevenston and now lives in Saltcoats. She also is a descendant of Mary McNaught. Her access to local records added considerably to what I had been able to find from the parish registers. Margaret's many additions and corrections to this part of our family history are cited below as [Scott, 2002].

In 2007 Iain Brown of Kilwinning, just a few miles from Stevenston, got in touch with me and we also exchanged detailed information on this lineage. Indeed, it was his insight that first led us to recognize James' second marriage. Iain is descended from Janet McNaught, daughter of our progenitor James McNaught by that second wife Elizabeth Walker, who married John Conn in 1810. I've cited his contributions here as [Brown, 2007].
Finally (or at least most recently), Stephen Reid of Giffnock, Glasgow, Scotland, contacted me and we've exchanged correspondence on the McNaughts. He's descended from James and his first wife Margaret King by their daughter Margaret who married Peter Wilson in 1794. His contributions are cited as [Reid, 2011].
I'm greatly indebted to all three of these cousins who have generously shared the results of their own research to significantly extend and improve this chapter on our McNaught ancestry.

James McNaught  &  Margaret King
James 1 , Mary 2 King Top  

James McNaught was born 4 Aug 1745 in Greenhill, Ochiltree Parish, Ayrshire, Scotland and died 12 Dec 1816 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland. 
James was married (1) to Margaret 6 Jul 1770 in Stevenston. 
Margaret King was born 23 Dec 1750 in Stevenston and died 9 Mar 1791 in Stevenston.  She was the daughter of William and Elizabeth (____) King. 

From the AyrshireRoots.com transcriptions of the Stevenston monumental inscriptions, we find
High Kirk JAMES McNAUGHT died 12-12-1816 aged 71

and thus born 1745. Margaret Scott writes that the monument is "on the left hand side as you enter the churchyard facing the main door" of High Kirk.
Their marriage record in the 1770 Stevenston Parochial Registers reads:
IMAGE: McNight_King_marriage.gif
James McNight and Margt King both in this par give in their Names June 16th mar July 6th

The phrase "give in their names …" is an indication of the posting of banns, which in later years evolved to "gave in their names for proclamation of banns in order to marriage …".
All of the ten children of James and Margaret, born every two years (precisely), were recorded in the Stevenston Parochial Registers as children of James McNaught wright in Stevenston and Margt King. Only for Mary, the first, was the surname spelled McNight.
From these birth records of his children, we know that James worked as a wright. Iain Brown calls him a "wright (joiner)", and scotsfamil.com/occupations defines a Wright as a Joiner or Carpenter. His son William was also a wright in Stevenston.
James and Margaret lost four of their children while they were still infants. Children in a family who died young, as evidenced from their given name being reused as well as from explicit records, are herein marked with the symbol †. Between May 10th to Sep 16th, 1778, sixteen deaths due to the pox were recorded in Stevenston, about one per week, and their daughter Janet died of the pox during that time. The parish experienced about the same rate between October 1781 and July 1782, when son James died, and again between July and December 1797, just after Robert's death. That, however, was the beginning of the end of the scourge of small-pox, as the English physician Edward Jenner developed his cow-pox vaccine and made it available to the world.
As pointed out by Margaret Scott, James' parents should be James and Elizabeth, according to Scottish naming conventions, and Margaret's parents possibly William and Mary. I haven't identified James mother, and Margaret's was, instead, Elizabeth, but Margaret Scott points out that many factors enter into choosing baptismal names, so the conventions can be only a guide.
Also, James doesn't fit into the various McNaught families otherwise recorded in Stevenston. He must have been born 1775 or before, but no births are recorded in Stevenston or Ardrossan that could have been his. The closest in time in Ayrshire is the son born 18 Sep 1764 in Old Cumnock to James McKnight and Janet Creighton/Crichton. This submitted record claims that this James was one of triplet sons, but two of the three records do not give any source information at all.
Birth records for Elizabeth and Margaret are also not obvious. There was a baptism recorded 23 Sep 1759 in both Stevenston and Ardrossan parish records for an Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Walker and Agnes Kerr who also had a daughter Margaret baptised 12 Mar 1761 in Stevenston, but these daughters would have been in their thirties to fifties when the McNaught children were born.
Finally, James and Elizabeth's granddaughter Elizabeth Conn, daughter of Janet, is reported to have married an Alexander Brown in Kilwinning.
Margaret's birth appears in the Stevenston Parochial Registers for 1750:

The ten children of James and Margaret (King) McNaught: Mary, Elizabeth, Margaret, Janet†, James†, William, James†, John, James and Thomas. 
1    McNaught, Mary was born 8 Jun 1771.    
2    McNaught, Elizabeth was born 29 Jul 1773 in Stevenston and baptized 29 Jul 1773 in Stevenston.  She was married to John Paton 10 Jun 1793 in Stevenston. 
Elizabeth's birth record in the 1773 Stevenston Parochial Register:
Eliz. dau to James McNaught wright in Stevenston & Margt King bor July 29th Bap Do privately
and her marriage record in 1793:
John Paton in the parish of Dundonald and Elizabeth McNaught give in their Names May 31th June 10 marr.
Dundonald is the next parish south along the coast from Stevenston. No birth records for John or their children were found in the IGI.
3    McNaught, Margaret was born 15 Aug 1775 in Stevenston and baptized 20 Aug 1775 in Stevenston.  She was married to Peter Wilson 8 Aug 1794 in Stevenston.  Peter was born 5 Nov 1770 in Barony Parish, Lanarkshire, Scotland and died before 1851.  He was the son of David and Jean (Dick) Wilson. 
Margaret's birth record in the 1775 Stevenston Parochial Register:
Margt dautt to James McNaught wright in Stevenston and Margt King bor Augt 15th Bap 20th
and her marriage in 1794:
Peter Wilson and Margaret McNaught both of this parish give in their names July 19th marr. August 8
This is the lineage of Stephen Reid of Glasgow, who provided the information on Peter, and the names of the children of this family and of many of their descendants [Reid, 2011]. He wrote that much of his information came from a Janet Brown on www.genesreunited.co.uk. However, his brother in Australia who had collected that information was unable to get a response when trying to contact her for source information. I thank him for generously sharing with me the results of his research on his line.
The ten children of Peter and Margaret (McNaught) Wilson: Margaret, Elizabeth, James, Wiliam†, Wiliam, Marrion†, Alexander, Agnes, Peter and Marrion. 
i    Wilson, Margaret was born 17 Oct 1795 in Barony Parish. 
ii    Wilson, Elizabeth was born 17 Oct 1797 in Barony Parish. 
iii    Wilson, James was born 22 Dec 1799 in Barony Parish.  He was married to Isabella Haddow 11 Jul 1824 in Barony Parish.  Isabella was born 10 Oct 1791 in Douglas, Lanarkshire, Scotland and died 25 Feb 1879 in Lenzie, Kirkintilloch, Scotland.  She was the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth (Reid) Haddow. 
Stephen Reid lists six children of James and Elizabeth, born 1825 through 1838., and descendants through many more generations.
iv    Wilson, Wiliam† was born 9 Apr 1802 in Barony Parish, Lanarkshire, Scotland and died 1802. 
v    Wilson, Wiliam was born 27 Dec 1803 in Barony Parish. 
vi    Wilson, Marrion† was born 3 Mar 1806 in Barony Parish and died before 1816. 
vii    Wilson, Alexander was born 1 Jul 1808 in Barony Parish. 
viii    Wilson, Agnes was born 20 Oct 1810 in Barony Parish. 
ix    Wilson, Peter was born 12 Jul 1813 in Barony Parish. 
x    Wilson, Marrion was born 25 Aug 1816 in Barony Parish. 
4    McNaught, Janet† was born 8 Aug 1777 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland, baptized 8 Aug 1777 in Stevenston and died 11 Jul 1778 in Stevenston. 
Janet's birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Janet Dau to James McNaught wright in Stev & Margt King br Augst 8th Bap Do
and ten months later on 11 June the next year:
Janet Dau to James McNaught wright in Stev. died June 11th pox.
5    McNaught, James† was born 26 Jun 1779 in Stevenston, baptized 27 Jun 1779 in Stevenston and died 12 Oct 1781 in Stevenston. 
James' birth record in the 1779 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
James son to James McNaught wright in Stev & Margt King bor June 26 Bap 27th
Then, in 1781,
James son to James McNaught Wright in Stev. died Octr 12 pox
His was one of the first of 33 deaths in the parish in a nine month period due to small pox.
6    McNaught, William was born 27 May 1781 in Stevenston, baptized in Stevenston and died 20 Apr 1870 in Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland.  He was married to Margaret Walker about 1801.  Margaret died 13 Nov 1869 in Ayrshire, Scotland.  She was the daughter of ____ and ____ (____) Walker. 
William's birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Willm son to James McNaught wright in Stev & Margt King bor May 27th.
That no baptism was entered for William in the register is probably simply an oversight, but the date cannot be inferred.
Margaret Scott's notes indicate that in the 1861 census William, 80 and a joiner, lived at approximately 28 School Well Street with his wife Margaret 82, daughter Agnes Fleming 47, muslin sewer, and grandaughter Margaret Fleming 22, a dress maker. She also reports that he sold his house to the Orr family for £45, apparently with the right to rent it for life for payments of £2 [Scott, 2002].
William died of "debility euribelas" at the Cunninghame Combination Poor House 20 Apr 1870 at the age of 90 [Scott, 2002]. Margaret had died just five months previously on 13 Nov 1869.
There is no marriage record around 1801 in the Stevenston Parochial Registers for William McNaught and Margaret Walker. However, there is a record for Elizabeth Walker and James McNaught. Their children were all born and baptised in Stevenston, Janet 1793, Robert 1795, Agnes 1797, Jane 1799 and Ann 1802. William McNaught and Margaret Walker's children were born from 1802 to 1818. I’m assuming that this Elizabeth Walker is sister to the Margaret Walker who married William McNaught, but she may have been an aunt, instead. James does not appear on the Rev. Landsborough’s parish lists, but Eliz. Walker McNaught was listed as a widow living on Schoolwell Street in 1819, 1822 and 1837. The first two years she had her daughter Ann living with her.
Also, James doesn't fit into the various McNaught families otherwise recorded in Stevenston. He must have been born 1775 or before, but no births are recorded in Stevenston or Ardrossan that could have been his. The closest in time in Ayrshire is the son born 18 Sep 1764 in Old Cumnock to James McKnight and Janet Creighton/Crichton. One of the submitted record claims that this James was one of triplet sons, but two of the three IGI records do not give any source information at all.
Birth records for Elizabeth and Margaret are also not obvious. There was a baptism recorded 23 Sep 1759 in both Stevenston and Ardrossan parish records for an Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Walker and Agnes Kerr who also had a daughter Margaret baptised 12 Mar 1761 in Stevenston, but these daughters would have been in their thirties to fifties when the McNaught children were born. Margaret Walker and William McNaught had a son James who married an Agnes Kerr. Coincidence?
The eight children of William and Margaret (Walker) McNaught: James, Robert†, Margaret, Janet†, Robert, Agnes, William† and Janet. 
i    McNaught, James was born 7 May 1802 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland, baptized 9 May 1802 in Stevenston and died 4 May 1835 in Stevenston.  He was married to Agnes Kerr about 1821.  Agnes was baptized 7 May 1798 in Stevenston.  She was the daughter of James and Ann (Reid) Kerr. 
James' birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
James Son to William McNaught wright in Stevenson & Margaret Walker born 7th May Bap 9th.
Among the McNaught-Kerr families in Stevenston, there were two James McNaught and Agnes Kerr families whose childen need to be identified. The earlier couple was James, son of James McNaught and Margaret King, and Agnes, daughter of William Kerr and Janet Hunter. That earlier James, born 1787, and who I'll refer to as James (A), was uncle to this second James, born 1802, whom I'm denoting as James (B).
See McNaught-Kerr Families (new window) for a full discussion of these two families.
The four children of James and Agnes (Kerr) McNaught: Ann†, Margaret†, Ann and William†. 
1    McNaught, Ann† was born 27 Aug 1822 in Stevenston, baptized in Stevenston and died 19 May 1826 in Stevenston. 
I find that I recorded this Ann's birthdate as 27 Aug 1822, and her baptism as 20 Aug 1822. I don't know which is correct, but a guess might be that I mistyped what should have been a 30 Aug baptism, as that fits the pattern of the other children, each baptised a few days after their birth.
2    McNaught, Margaret† was born 15 Sep 1824 in Stevenston, baptized 19 Sep 1824 in Stevenston and died 17 May 1826 in Stevenston. 
3    McNaught, Ann was born 9 Apr 1829 in Stevenston and baptized 11 Apr 1829 in Stevenston. 
4    McNaught, William† was born 1833 in Stevenston and died 1833 in Stevenston. 
ii    McNaught, Robert† was born 8 Feb 1804 in Stevenston, baptized 12 Feb 1804 in Stevenston and died 23 Sep 1805 in Stevenston. 
Robert's birth record in the 1804 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Robert Son to William McNaught wright in Stevenson & Margaret Walker was born Feb 8th and Bap 12
and the next year:
William McNaughts Child Died Septr 23
iii    McNaught, Margaret was born 22 Mar 1806 in Stevenston and baptized 23 Mar 1806 in Stevenston. 
Margaret's birth record in the 1806 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Margaret Daughter to William McNaught wright in Stevenson & Margaret Walker born March 22th May Bap 23.
This is one of two Margaret McNaughts who could have been the wife of William Kerr, born 23 Mar 1800, married 2 Aug 1834, and with daughter Ann Kerr born 31 Dec 1837, all in Stevenston. That other Margaret, daughter of John McNaught and Janet Auld, is more likely, as her sister married a John Kerr.
It is possible that this Margaret married John Gibson [IGI]. However, the ages are quite disparate, John being 15 years younger, so such a marriage is unlikely.
iv    McNaught, Janet† was born 14 May 1808 in Stevenston, baptized 15 May 1808 in Stevenston and died before 1818. 
Janet's birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Janet Daugt to William McNight wright in Stevenson & Margt Walker born May 14th Bap 15th.
v    McNaught, Robert was born 4 Jun 1810 in Stevenston and baptized 6 Jun 1810 in Stevenston. 
Robert's birth record in the 1810 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Robert Son to Wm McNaught wright in Stevenson & Margt Walker born June 4th Bap 6th.
See the note for Robert, son of John McNaught and Janet Auld, as to the marriage of a Robert McNaught to an Ann Miller.
vi    McNaught, Agnes was born 16 Jul 1813 in Stevenston and baptized 18 Jul 1813 in Stevenston.  She was married to Neil Fleming 29 Jan 1836 in Stevenston. 
Agnes' birth and baptism is recorded in the Stevenston Parochial Register for 1813:
Agnes Daughter to Wm McNight in Stevenston & Margt walker born July 16th Bap 18th.
and her marriage record in 1836:
Neil Fleming, seaman in the parish of Ardrossan and Agnes McNight in this parish gave in their names for proclamation Jany 29th Married.
Also, in the Ardrossan Parochial Register:
Neil Fleming Sailor in this parish and Agnes McNaught in the Parish of Stevenston gave In their names for proclamation of banns this 30th day of January were ______ proclaimed and married by the Revd Landsborough.
A child of Neil and Agnes (McNaught) Fleming: Margaret. 
1    Fleming, Margaret was born 1838/1839 in Stevenston. 
Margaret's birth year comes from her age of 22 when she and her mother Agnes were censused living with her grandparents William and Margaret McNaught.
vii    McNaught, William† was born 14 Apr 1816 in Stevenston, baptized 14 Apr 1816 in Stevenston and died 15 Feb 1820 in Stevenston. 
From the 1820 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Wm son to Wm McNight Stevenston died Feby 15th.
viii    McNaught, Janet was born 5 Dec 1818 in Stevenston and baptized 13 Dec 1818 in Stevenston. 
From the 1818 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Janet daughtr to Wm NcNaught and Margt Walker Born Decr 5th Bap 13th.
7    McNaught, James† was born 6 Jul 1783 in Stevenston, baptized 6 Jul 1783 in Stevenston and died 1786 in Saltcoats, Ayrshire, Scotland. 
James' birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
James son to James McNaught wright in Stev & Margt King bor July 6th Bap the Same Day.
and in 1786 (I failed to copy the month):
James son to James McNaught Wright in Stevenston died 27th.
8    McNaught, John was born 11 May 1785 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland, baptized 11 May 1785 in Stevenston and died 20 Jul 1857.  He was married to Janet Auld 14 Mar 1807 in Stevenston. 
John's birth record in the 1785 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
John son to James McNaught wright in Stevenston and Margt King born May 11th Bap Do privately
and his marriage in 1807:
John McNight and Janet Auld both in this parish gave in their names March 14th.
From the Rev. Landsborough's lists, we find that John was a wright, like his father, living on School Well Street. However, at the baptism of his daughter Margaret in 1812 he was described as a joiner. For the other children's births he was noted as a wright, in accordance with the Landsborough list. In the 1819 list the living children were Janet, James, Margaret, Elizabeth and John; in 1822 there were six children in the family, and in 1837 three. All of the parish records of the births of his children spell his surname McNight, but Landsborough in his the 1819 list spelled it McNaught. His brother William in the parish records was also alternately McNight and McNaught.
The eleven children of John and Janet (Auld) McNaught: James†, Janet, James, Margaret, Elizabeth, Robert†, John, Agnes, Robert, Ann and Mary Innes. 
i    McNaught, James† was born 13 Jul 1807 in Stevenston, baptized 19 Jul 1807 in Stevenston and died 28 Jan 1809 in Stevenston. 
From the 1807 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
James son to John McNight Wright in Stevn & Jance Auld born July 13th Bapt Do 19th.
and in 1809
John Macnight's childe in Stevenston Died Jany 28th.
ii    McNaught, Janet was born 12 Sep 1808 in Stevenston and baptized 15 Sep 1808 in Stevenston.  She was married to John McClae / McLean after 9 Feb 1828 in Stevenston. 
Janet's birth and baptism in 1808 appeared at the beginning of the 1809 Stevenston Parochial Registers as one of six records inserted there:
Janet daught. to John McNight Wright in Stevenston & Janet Auld Born Sepr 12th Bapd 15th 1808.
Her marriage record in 1828, where the end of the entry is unreadable:
Robt McClae in this parish of Irvine and Janet McNight in this parish gave in their names Feby 9 … .
The Arshireroots.com Genealogy database gives Janet's birth as about 1805, Robert's name as McClay, and lists the marriage as 10 Feb 1828 in Stevenston and Irvine. Robert McLean and Janet McNaught, with three children, were listed in 1837 by the Rev. Landsborough. (The IGI for Scotland does not equate the three surname spellings.)
iii    McNaught, James was born 31 Aug 1810 in Stevenston, baptized 2 Sep 1810 in Stevenston and died after 1874.  He was married to Margaret Ritchie 30 Sep 1831 in Stevenston.  Margaret was born 1805/1807. 
From the 1810 "Stevenston Parochial Registers":
James son to John McNight Wright in Stevenston & Janet Auld Born Augt 31st Bap Sept 2d.
Then, in 1831:
James McNight and Margt Ritchie both in this parish Registered Sep 16th Mar 30th.
From the 1861 and 1871 census indexes, Margaret was born 1805/07, and they had a granddaughter Jean McNaught born 1853/54 living with them both years. James was a cotton weaver, and they lived on Schoolwell Street [Scott, 2002].
From the Town Crier's Account Book:
"James McNaught of Stevenston was the town crier (of Saltcoats?). This well-worn account book is his record (about half in ink, half in pencil) of the events he ‘cried’, and how much he was paid, during the period 1863 to 1874. Many events were regular ones, such as colliers meetings, sales of goods, sales of meat, vegetables, fish etc, as well as unusual ones such as missing children, lost property, temperance meetings etc etc. These events plus misc payments received for odd jobs cover 31pp of this account book. Elsewhere in the book James recorded much family detail including his marriage to Margaret Ritchie in 1831, and births (and some infant deaths) of children. He also records "my father John McNaught got his thigh splintered by a fall on the frost on the 14 February 1838 and died on 20th July 1857. ... Elsewhere it is recorded that John Hammel had married Jean McNaught in 1875. ..." .
The seven children of James and Margaret (Ritchie) McNaught: John, Jean, James Ritchie, Janet, Margaret, Elizabeth and James. 
1    McNaught, John was born 1 Feb 1835 in Stevenston and baptized 15 Feb 1835 in Stevenston. 
2    McNaught, Jean was born 1834/1835 in Stevenston.  She was married to John Reid 1861 in Stevenston.  John was born 1838/1839.  He was the son of Alexander and Isabella (Robertson) Reid. 
Although no birth was recorded for Jean, her marriage record clearly identifies her [Scott, 2002] citing Linda Nordby citing Ken Reid:
"11/10/1861 wedding of John Reid of Stevenston, son aged 22 of Alexander Reid and Isabella Robertson, to Jean McNaught of Stevenston, daughter aged 26 of James Mcnaught and Margaret Ritchie."
I don't know which way dates in this format are to be read, so this might be 11 Oct or 10 Nov, 1861.
3    McNaught, James Ritchie was born 10 Dec 1837 in Stevenston and baptized 31 Dec 1837 in Stevenston. 
James Ritchie was followed by James in this family, but I don't know whether or not that implies he died young.
4    McNaught, Janet was born 27 Apr 1840 in Stevenston and baptized 8 May 1840 in Stevenston.  She was married to Alexander Stevenson 10 Jun 1859 in Stevenston.  Alexander was born 1840. 
Janet's husband and marriage date are from the Arshireroots.com Genealogy database.
5    McNaught, Margaret was born 21 Mar 1843 in Stevenston, baptized 26 Mar 1843 in Stevenston and died 1901 in Lonaconing, Allegany, Maryland.  She was married to James Allerdice 22 Aug 1863 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland.  He was the son of Thomas and Janet (Frew) Allerdice. 
Posted on the Ancestry.com boards 7 Jan 2001 by Ruth Sprowls :
"My gr-gr-grandmother Margaret McNaught b. abat. 1842, Scotland, married James Allerdice b. abt 1842, married August 22, 1862 Stevenston, Ayreshire, Scotland. … Moved to Allegany County Maryland about 1875?"
Margaret Scott has this information also, from Ruth, and lists six children Janet, Margaret, Agnes, Elizabeth, Agnes and Jemima Allerdice born 1863 through 1874.
6    McNaught, Elizabeth was born 27 Jun 1847 in Stevenston and baptized 2 Jul 1847 in Stevenston. 
7    McNaught, James was born 3 Sep 1850 in Stevenston and baptized 8 Sep 1850 in Stevenston. 
iv    McNaught, Margaret was born 20 Dec 1812 in Stevenston and baptized 25 Dec 1812 in Stevenston.  She was married to William Kerr 2 Aug 1834 in Stevenston.  William was born 23 Mar 1800 in Stevenston.  He was the son of James and Ann (Reid) Kerr. 
From the 1812 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Margaret daughter to John McNight Joiner in Stevenston & Janet Auld Born dcr 21st Bapd 25th.
This is one of two Margaret McNaughts who could have been the wife of William Kerr, the other being the one who married John Gibson in 1831. Since this Margaret's sister Elizabeth married John Kerr, she is somewhat more likely to be William Kerr's wife, and I have assumed that's so for now.
William Kerr in the parish of Kilmarnock and Margt McNight in this parish registered Augt 2d [SPR].
Magaret and William had several children, in addition to Ann, below, who are listed in the IGI, but I have not seen the primary source records.
A child of William and Margaret (McNaught) Kerr: Ann. 
1    Kerr, Ann was born 31 Dec 1837 in Stevenston. 
v    McNaught, Elizabeth was born 18 May 1815 in Stevenston and baptized 21 May 1815 in Stevenston.  She was married to John Kerr after 19 Dec 1840 in Stevenston. 
From the 1815 Stevenston Parochial Regisgters:
Elizabeth Daught to James McNight wright in Stevenston & Janet uld born May 18th Bapd 21st.
where Janet's maiden name was clearly written uld. Elizabeth's marriage record in 1840:
John Kerr in West Parish Greenock & Elizabeth McNaught in this parish gave in their names for proclamation this 19th Decr mard.
John's parish, also known as Old Greenock Parish, is in Renfrewshire, about four miles south of the town of Greenock, and about 18 miles due north of Stevenston.
vi    McNaught, Robert† was born 20 Mar 1817 in Stevenston, baptized 23 Mar 1817 in Stevenston and died before Feb 1823. 
From the 1817 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Robert son to John McNight Wright in Stevenston and Janet Auld Born March 20th Bapd 23d.
vii    McNaught, John was born 20 Mar 1818 in Stevenston and baptized 22 Mar 1818 in Stevenston.  He was married to Isabella Niven 22 Oct 1844 in Stevenston. 
From the 1818 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
John son to John McNight Wright in Stevenston and Janet Auld Born March 20th Bapd 22d.
John married a girl who was also of Sevenston, but their marriage took place clear on the other side of Scotland. From the 1844 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
John McNaught Mariner and Isabella Niven both in this parish gave in their names for proclamation of banns in Order to Marriage this 19th Oct and were Married Oct 22d at Dundee by the Rev. George Gilfillen.
Dundee, on the Firth of Tay, is in County Angus, or Forfarshire. We can well imagine that Isabella, although living in Stevenston, had her marriage performed back in her home town.
viii    McNaught, Agnes was baptized 1822 in Stevenston. 
From the Stevenston Parochial Registers for 1822 we have a daughter Agnes baptised 1822, father John McNight [SCR]. I missed this when reading the film, so don't know what the birth date was, nor whether a blank space was left for the mother's name or it was just omitted altogether.
ix    McNaught, Robert was born 25 Feb 1823 in Stevenston and baptized 2 Mar 1823 in Stevenston.  He was married to Ann Miller.  Ann was born 1823/1824 in Ayrshire?, Scotland. 
From the 1823 Stevenston Parish Registers:
Robert McNight Wright in Stevenston & Janet Auld born 25th Feby Bap Jany 2d.
This baptismal month seems to have been the result of absent mindedness on the part of the minister, as previous and subsequent baptisms on that page were in the month of March. That, of course, is consistent with a birth at the end of February.
Robert McNight and Ann Miller both in this parish give in their names for proclamation July 29th.
Oct 2002]. The large intervals among the last children may indicate that other siblings died young.
The Poor Relief Record, Stevenston 1866, reads:
"466 1866 Robert McNaught Fullerton Place Stevenston 29th June Tailor married above 40 partially disabled wife Ann Miller (in fever) 40 son John 20 collier lying with fever some days past Charles 19 Isabella 16 Applicant laid up with fever though better although weakly Wife at present ill for last days James 11yrs Janet 5yrs Alexander 2yrs Settlement Stevenston Relieved"
Not all of the ages agree exactly with the census record, but considering that both Robert and Ann were laid up with the fever, the numbers are remarkably good.
The six children of Robert and Ann (Miller) McNaught: John, Charles, Isabella, James, Janet and Alexander. 
1    McNaught, John was born 1844/1845 in Stevenston?, Ayrshire, Scotland. 
2    McNaught, Charles was born 1846/1847 in Stevenston?. 
3    McNaught, Isabella was born 1848/1849 in Stevenston?. 
4    McNaught, James was born 1854/1855 in Stevenston?. 
5    McNaught, Janet was born 1859/1860 in Stevenston?. 
6    McNaught, Alexander was born 1863/1864 in Stevenston?. 
x    McNaught, Ann was born 23 Apr 1825 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland and baptized 1 May 1825 in Stevenston. 
From the 1825 Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Ann daughter of John McNight Wright of Stevenston and Janet Auld born 23rd April Bapd 1 May.
xi    McNaught, Mary Innes was born 7 Aug 1827 in Stevenston and baptized 11 Aug 1827 in Stevenston.  She was married to James Lyle 2 Jul 1847 in Stevenston. 
This daughter was one of the few in our Scottish heritage to have been baptised with two given names. From the Stevenston Parochial Registers for 1827:
Mary Innes daughter to Jno McNight Wright in Stevn and Janet Auld born 7th Bapd 11th Aug.
And, in 1847,
James Lyle in the Low Church Parish of Kilmarnock and Mary Innes McNight in this Parish gave in their names for proclamation of banns in Order to Marriage the 12th day of June
9    McNaught, James was born 7 Jun 1787 in Stevenston and baptized 10 Jun 1787 in Stevenston.  He was married to Agnes Kerr about 1816.  Agnes was baptized 5 Oct 1788 in Stevenston.  She was the daughter of William and Janet (Hunter) Kerr. 
James' birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
James son to James McNaught wright in Stev & Margt King born June 7th Bap 10th
There were two James McNaught and Agnes Kerr families in Stevenston, both of whom named children James and Ann. I am designating the husband of this present couple as James (A). The other, a nephew of this James, I've denoted as James (B). See McNaught-Kerr Families (new window) for a full discussion of these two families.
James born 1787 was a sailor living on Boglemart Street with his wife Agnes Kerr in 1819, and on Schoolwell Street (which intersects Boglemart) with her in 1822. The 1819 list of the Rev. Landsborough names children James and Ann, and the 1822 list indicates two children. The family did not appear on the 1837 list.
Agnes' birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Agnes Dau to William Kerr indweller in Saltcoats and Janet Hunter born Sept 27th Bap Oct 5
Indweller means tenant, as contrasted to owner, of his residence.
The four children of James and Agnes (Kerr) McNaught: James†, Ann, James† and James. 
i    McNaught, James† was born before 1819 in Stevenston and died 1819/1820 in Stevenston. 
ii    McNaught, Ann was born before 1819 in Stevenston. 
iii    McNaught, James† was born 10 Oct 1820 in Stevenston, baptized 16 Oct 1820 in Stevenston and died before Nov 1826. 
iv    McNaught, James was born 2 Nov 1826 in Stevenston and baptized 16 Nov 1826 in Stevenston. 
10    McNaught, Thomas was born 5 Dec 1789 in Stevenston and baptized 6 Dec 1789 in Stevenston. 
Thomas' birth record in the Stevenston Parochial Registers:
Thomas son to James McNaught wright in Stev & Margt King born 5th Bap 6th
No marriage was found for Thomas in the IGI.

James McNaught  &  Elizabeth Walker

James McNaught was born 4 Aug 1745 in Greenhill, Ochiltree Parish, Ayrshire, Scotland and died 12 Dec 1816 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland. 
James was married (2) to Elizabeth 25 Feb 1793 in Stevenston. 
Elizabeth Walker was born Sep 1759.  She was the daughter of ____ and ____ (____) Walker. 

The 2007 suggestion of Iain Brown seems eminently correct, that there were in fact not two James McNaughts, wrights, in Stevenston in the 1790s. The "proof" is founded on the names and dates of the second family. The dates involved are as follows:
James and Margaret King married 1770. Their ten children were born every two years from 1771 through 1789. Margaret died in 1791. James and Elizabeth Walker were married Monday, 25 Feb 1793, and their first daughter Janet was born the next day, on the 26th. (Iain Brown confirms those two dates in the parish record, and as Margaret Scott writes -- that must have been an exciting two days!) Their remaining children were born in 1795, 97, 99 and 1802. James and Elizabeth named their first child, Janet, after a deceased child of Margaret, and the other three names do not match her surviving children. This also is evidence (although weak) that they were all children of one father.
Elizabeth and James McNaught's marriage is recorded in the Stevenston parish register, but many of the children's birth records are spelled McNight. I'm assuming for the time being that this Elizabeth Walker who married a James McNaught is the sister or aunt to Margaret Walker who married James' son William McNaught. William was living on School Well Street with all the other McNaughts, but James does not appear on the Rev. Landsborough's parish lists in 1819, 1822 and 1837 even though the birth and baptisms of all of their children appear in the parish register. This apparently indicates that the family left Stevenston before 1819.
"Eliz Walker McNaught" was listed by the Rev. Landsborough as a widow living on Schoolwell Street in 1819, 1822 and 1837. The first two years she had her daughter Ann living with her.
The five children of James and Elizabeth (Walker) McNaught: Janet, Robert†, Agnes, Jane and Ann. 
1    McNaught, Janet was born 26 Feb 1793 in Stevenston, baptized 11 Mar 1793 in Stevenston and died 7 Jan 1869 in Stevenston.  She was married to John Conn 20 Apr 1810 in Stevenston, Ayr, Scotland.  John was born 1785 and baptized 28 Jan 1786 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland.  He was the son of John and Mary (Paton) Conn. 
According to the Rev. Landsborough, John was a wright living on School Well Street, and the children in this family in 1819 were Elizabeth, John, James, Mary and David. By 1822 there were four children still at home, and in 1837 there were seven persons in the household, including a Mary Conn.
The twelve Conn children in this family were taken from freepages.family.rootsweb.com/~howiefamily/84/39.htm.
Robert Conn b 10 Feb 1828 to John Conn and Janet McNaught in Stevenston, Ayrshire
An entry in the AyrshireRoots.com database says that daughter Elizabeth born 15 Jun 1823 married 17 Oct 1862 in Kilwinning an Alexander Brown born about 1810. (The same entry also says he married the sister Elizabeth born 30 Nov 1810 who died before 1823, but at least the record adds some question marks.) Who this Alexander is we don't know, and why the marriage would have been in Kilwinning is unknown. This same source gives the date of Janet's death in "Big Green Cottage, Schoolwell St.".'
The ancestry of John is online at the www.ayrshireroots.com/ Ayrshireroots Surname Database. He was a joiner by profession and lived on School Well Street, along with all of the McNaughts.
Iain Brown says John was born in 1785, so the date I have was probably a baptism.
The twelve children of John and Janet (McNaught) Conn: Elizabeth†, John, James†, James, David†, Mary, David, Elizabeth, William, Robert, Ann and Thomas. 
i    Conn, Elizabeth† was born 30 Nov 1810 in Stevenston and died before 1823 in Stevenston. 
The cited source say Elizabeth "probably" died before 1823.
ii    Conn, John was born 2 Aug 1812 in Stevenston and died 7 Jan 1874 in Quay Str., Saltcoats, Ayrshire, Scotland.  He was married to Elizabeth Fife. 
The Arshireroots.com Genealogy database gives this son who did not appear in the cited source, and the four year gap otherwise supports that there was a child born about 1812.
iii    Conn, James† was born 3 Jul 1814 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland, baptized 7 Jul 1814 and died before 1815 in Stevenston. 
iv    Conn, James was born 29 Jul 1815 in Stevenston. 
v    Conn, David† was born 30 Aug 1817 in Stevenston and died before 1821 in Stevenston. 
vi    Conn, Mary was born 9 Mar 1819 in Stevenston. 
vii    Conn, David was born 29 May 1821 in Stevenston and died 1 Nov 1880.  He was married to Janet Bell Dick 23 Sep 1843 in Stevenston.  Janet Bell was born 1823 in Dundonald. 
A child of David and Janet Bell (Dick) Conn: David. 
1    Conn, David was born 1860.  He was married to Mary Rolling. 
A child of David and Mary (Rolling) Conn: Francis. 
i    Conn, Francis was born 1895 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland. 
Francis is a great-great grandfather of Iain Brown [2007].
viii    Conn, Elizabeth was born 13 Jun 1823 in Stevenston. 
ix    Conn, William was born 8 Mar 1825 in Stevenston. 
x    Conn, Robert was born 10 Feb 1828 in Stevenston and died 2 May 1873 in Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia.  He was married to Jane Howie 15 Dec 1849 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland.  Jane was born 19 Aug 1827 in Stevenston. 
Robert and Jane had three children, John, Grace and Robert. A RootsWeb WorldConnect genealogy states that Robert arrived in Victoria in 1854 on the Indian Ocean.
xi    Conn, Ann was born 7 Apr 1830. 
Another source gave 7 Apr 1830 as Ann's birth date. 1 Jul may have been a baptism date.
xii    Conn, Thomas was born 11 Mar 1833 in Stevenston. 
2    McNaught, Robert† was born 14 Mar 1795 in Stevenston and baptized 15 Mar 1795 in Stevenston. 
I had originally assigned this son to James and Margaret Walker, although the birth year seemed quite late. The realization the James had married twice clarified this to place him as the second child of James and Elizabeth.
Robert son to James McNaught wright died May 5th
3    McNaught, Agnes was born 4 Mar 1797 in Stevenston and baptized 5 Mar 1797 in Stevenston.  She was married to John McKechan 3 Jul 1815 in Stevenston, Ayr, Scotland.  John was born 1795 in Ayrshire, Scotland. 
From the Rev. Landsborough, we find that John was a labourer living on School Well Street, and that he and Agnes had three children in 1819, James, John and Alex, three in 1822, and there were ten people in the houshold in 1837.
From the SCR, the children in this McKechan family, all born in Stevenston, were:
James b 5 May 1816 John b 5 Jul 1818 Alexander b 1 Oct 1820 Ann b 11 Dec 1825 Elizabeth b 2 Feb 1827 Catherine b 16 Mar 1828 Robert b 26 Jun 1833
According to the Arshireroots.com Genealogy database, there was another daughter Janet, and according to poorhouse records, another daughter Mary.
The children are presented in more detail online at www.ayrshireroots.com/Genealogy/Database/dat16.html#21, and some marriages and grandchildren are available in the poorhouse records sent to me by Linda A. Nordby.
4    McNaught, Jane was born 11 Nov 1799 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland and baptized 17 Nov 1799 in Stevenston.  She was married to William Kirkwood 19 Jun 1818 in Stevenston.  William was born 1800. 
According to the Rev. Landsborough, William was a weaver living on Boglemart Street (which crosses one end of School Well Street) in 1819, when they had sons James and John, but was "away" for the 1822 list and not listed at all in 1837.
The record of the births of Jane's children list her as Jane McNight, but Landsborough lists her as Jean McNaught, wife of William Kirkwood.
Landsborough lists sons James and John in 1819, but the IGI gives their baptisms as 1819 and 1821. This might be interpreted as baptisms considerably after birth, or possibly earlier sons who died young.
The three children of William and Jane (McNaught) Kirkwood: James, John and William. 
i    Kirkwood, James was baptized 30 May 1819 in Stevenston. 
ii    Kirkwood, John was baptized 3 Jun 1821 in Stevenston. 
iii    Kirkwood, William was baptized 17 Sep 1823 in Stevenston. 
5    McNaught, Ann was born 12 Mar 1802 in Stevenston and baptized 14 Mar 1802 in Stevenston.  She was married to John Beveridge.  John was born 16 Aug 1828 in Stevenston. 
Ann was named as living with her widowed mother in 1819, and presumably was the unnamed child living there in 1822.

Mary McNaught  &  John Shedden

Mary McNaught was born 8 Jun 1771 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland, baptized 9 Jun 1771 in Stevenston and died 17 Feb 1837 in Stevenston. 
Mary was married (1) to John 17 Jul 1789 in Stevenston. 
John Shedden was born in Ayrshire?, Scotland and died 25 Jan 1796. 

Margaret Scott enlightened me as to Mary's first marriage to John Shedden which explains her age of 26 when she married Alexander. After some six years of marriage, John, a mason, died in a coal pit accident. They had three children, James, Margaret and John (Scott, 2002).
This does not completely follow the naming convention, as Mary's parents were Margaret and James, not John. This would be explicable if John Shedden's father were also James, in which case their son John might have been named after Mary's brother John. However, the only likely birth in Stevenston for Mary's first husband is a John Shedden baptised 7 Mar 1765, son to John Shedden and Margaret Easdale [SCR citing SPR; FR85].
The three children of John and Mary (McNaught) Shedden: James, Margaret and John. 
1    Shedden, James was baptized 4 Apr 1790 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland.  He was married to Ann Dunlop.  Ann was born in Ayrshire?, Scotland. 
The two children of James and Ann (Dunlop) Shedden: Mary and James. 
i    Shedden, Mary was baptized 9 Dec 1810 in Stevenston, Ayrshire, Scotland. 
ii    Shedden, James was baptized 26 Mar 1815 in Stevenston. 
2    Shedden, Margaret was baptized 21 Oct 1792 in Stevenston. 
3    Shedden, John was born 3 Oct 1794 in Stevenston and baptized 12 Oct 1794 in Stevenston. 

Mary McNaught  &  Alexander Brown
James 1 , Mary 2 Brown Top  

Mary McNaught was born 8 Jun 1771 in Stevenston, baptized 9 Jun 1771 in Stevenston and died 17 Feb 1837 in Stevenston. 
Mary was married (2) to Alexander 17 Jul 1797 in Stevenston. 
Alexander Brown was born 5 Sep 1771 in Saltcoats, Ayrshire, Scotland, baptized 8 Sep 1771 in Ardrossan, Ayrshire, Scotland and died after 1836.  He was the son of William and Kathrine (Hamilton) Brown. 

Alexander Brown was a weaver, a trade he passed on to his son Hamilton who practiced it in New York City before he apprenticed to become a watch glass maker. Alexander was born in Saltcoats, but established his family in Stevenston on School Well Street close to the relatives of his wife Mary McNaught.
The record of Alexander Brown's birth in Saltcoats and baptism in Ardrossan Parish in 1771 can be found in both the Stevenston Parochial Registers and the Ardrossan Parochail Registers, although they differ by one day in his birth and in the spelling of his mother's name. In Stevenston:

give in their Names July 12 married 17th

Alexander was listed on the Rev. Landsborough’s lists of the residents of Stevenson Parish, the last time, 1 Dec 1836, living alone. (This doesn’t gibe with Mary’s death record in 1837, see below.) In the first list, he is shown with Mary and their three youngest children, transcribed as “William, Alex, Ham??”. The Rev.’s handwriting was apparently somewhat difficult to read, and whatever he wrote for Hamilton evidently wasn’t able to be decyphered. Schoolwell Street, a single block-long, quarter-circle street in the middle of Stevenson, was also the address of the High Kirk, the Established Church of Scotland, and of the Manse, or parsonage, of their pastor the Rev. Landsborough.
Landsborough, pastor in Stevenston, compiled censuses of all of the families in his parish in three different years, 1819, 1822 and 1836 (downloadable transcriptions are available on RootsWeb) and these are an invaluable source of additional information. The Rev. Landsborough, or Dr. David Landsborough, was a polymath in the best tradition of the educated ministers of nineteenth century Great Britain. In addition to being the pastor of the High Kirk of Stevenston from 1811 to 1843, he was a naturalist of some note. He dredged for marine specimens around the islands of Arrand and the Cumbraes in the Firth of Clyde opposite Stevenston, and published "A Popular History of British Seaweeds". Smittina landsborovii, a species of Bryozoans, a colonial type of marine animal similar to but more complex than corals, was named after him. He was one of the participants in the Disruption of 1843 when many ministers who objected to the political constraints of the Established Church broke away to form the Free Church. The Rev. Landsborough left Stevenston High Kirk and set up a Free Church of Scotland in Saltcoats. During the second of two severe outbreaks of cholera in Ayrshire, Landsborough ministered to the dying until he, too, succumbed to the disease in September 1854.
In 1851 the Stevenston Census has an Alex Brown, weaver aged 74, at 96 Townhead [Scott, 2002]. As our Alexander's age at that time would have been 80, it's not clear whether this is his record with an inaccurate age, or that of someone else with the same name. In any event, we don't know our Alexander's death date.
Mary's birth and baptism were recorded in the Stevenston Parochial Registers for 1771:
IMAGE: Mary_McNaught_baptism.gif
Mary Daw to James McNight wright in
Stev And Margt King bor June 8th Bap 9th

All of the McNaughts in town seemed to live on School Well, the same one-block street as Mary and Alexander.
The Rev. Landsborough's 1822 list gave only the number of children in each family, two for Alex and Mary, with one lodger in their home. William would have been twenty at that time, and was no longer at home. In the much later list of 1837, Alex was listed as living alone (at age 64), as Mary had died that year, and Hamilton we know had by then emigrated to America. In the 1837 Stevenston Parochial Registers we find:
McNight, Mary, wife to Alexr Brown Stevenston died 17th Feby
The five children of Alexander and Mary (McNaught) Brown: Mary, Katharine, William, Alexander and Hamilton
