  • Notes 
    • PAROCHIAL REGISTER, CO. OF AYR, RICCARTON [Parish], vol. 611/2, provides:
      "1830. Campbell & Fulton. 15 Jan : William Campbell and Mary Fulton both in this Parish, enter their names, were regularly proclaimed three times on two Sabbaths and married on the 29th by the Rev. John Moody of Riccarton." [LDS Film 1041404, Frame 436]

      William & Mary proceeded to have 10 children, some of whom probably died in infancy. For example, the first James was born in 1833; the second, in 1842.

      The 1841 Census for Scotland, Riccarton Parish (No. 611), Enumerator's Schedule No. 6 (District #6) [LDS Film 1042738], shows that William and Mary were living in "Little Commonhead" in Riccarton Parish. It shows Mary's age as 30. It records that she was born in Ayrshire. Children living in the home were Ann, Robert, James, William, Martha, John, and baby Matthew.

      The Census of 1851 for Riccarton Parish (No. 611), Enumeration Book No. 3, p. 5 [LDS Film 1042409], shows that William & Mary were still living in Commonhead. It shows Mary's age as 44, and records she was born in Kilmaur [sic], Ayrshire. Only 4 children are shown as living in the home: Martha, 14 years; Mathew [sic], 10 years; James [the second], 8 years; and Thomas, 1 year.

      The Riccarton District death register for Mary provides: Surname/Name: "Campbell, Mary (Married)"; Date/Place: "1858, June First; 6 h 15 M P.M.; Commonhead, Riccarton"; Sex/Age: "F / 53 years"; Father: "James Fulton (deceased)"; Mother: "Susan Fulton, maiden name Lambie (deceased)"; Cause: "No medical attendant"; Burial Place: "Burial Ground of Riccarton"; Informant: [not legible]; Registered: "1858, June 2nd, at Riccarton, William Hood, Registrar."
