I was looking at Kathleen B. Cory's book Tracing Your Scottish Ancestry and while thumbing through it I came ipon a list of antiquated terms that apply to wills and land hold ters. Once was "umqhuile" it means late or deceased so possibly that's why the "U" was placed in the certificate even if it seems redunded. The clerk may have been someon of the old school that felt a need for Latin terms on the certs.

HI,

My Devlin line arrived in Scotland in the 1850's there were two brothers John Arthur and Patrick. Father John Devlin and Mary Usher.
I have traced the name Devlin back to Co Tyrone in Nr Ireland and if you got to http://www.devlin-family.com/devlinnamehistory.htm there is five pages of info which might interest you. there is also a good web sight called tribalpages.com where you can join for free and create your own family history page. hope this helps. most of the Devlins in Glasgow are descendants of these two brothers. you never know we may be related.

JOHN DEVLIN

I know it's been a while since your post, but I just googled Devlin and found you! This is too much of a coincidence.......... My grandmothers maiden name was Mary O'Brien Devlin b. 1912. Her parents were William John Devlin (he went by John) b 1873 and Jamima Nelson b 1897. WJ Devlins father was also a William John Devlin, married to a Jessie Douglas. It's just stricks me odd that there is the O'Brien thrown in there. Who was she named after? Was it your Mary O'Brien?

Hi All

Thanks for all your notes .Not been on site for a long time.

Yes my father grew up in Carfin and his Father Hugh Devlin was one of the families that built the grotto. Most of Carfins residents in the early 1900's were Irish coal mining communities and many related. Still pursuing the family history.
