     William Scott was born c 1803 at Carnwath, Lanarkshire, Scotland ,

Birth not located on IGI via Internet as at Nov 1999
nor located on the OPR for Carnwath, Lanark, at GSQ 19 Feb 2000
Parents names not recorded on death certificate - good possibles as parents would be a James and a Janet in relation to Scottish naming pattern.



William Scott married Marion Watson, daughter of George Watson and Elizabeth Harvey, c 1822 at Carstairs, Lanarkshire, Scotland ,

Marriage not located on IGI via Internet as at Nov 1999
nor on Carnwath, Lanark OPR, at GSQ 19 Feb 2000.
Need to now look at Cairstairs OPR but as the Carnwath OPR's for marriages only start at 1826, most likely the record will not be located.

There is only one record for a Scott married to a Watson around the time frame.
this is a William Scott married to a Margaret Watson Oct 15 1822, but at Campsie in Stirling.
this is close but not close enough for the places, but still a possilbe if I could find more information.



William lived at Abbey, Lanarkshire, Scotland , in 1827

From the baptisms of his children, William and his family were residing at Abbey.
There was a Abbey Burn which was on the boundary of Carnwath and Carstairs.

A stream which arises in Carnwath near Climpy, and forms the boundary between Carstairs and Carnwath Parishes, it receives this name to where the parish road crosses it a little North of Lower Throughburn.

There is also a Farmstead property of Robert Monteith Esq. c 1816.
