Note on Wife: Margaret DOAK

Surname is illegible on their son James's marriage certificate. There is a Margaret Doak married a John Young in Kilwinning on 5 Mar 1830. Seems like a probable link since there don't seem to be any other Margaret Doaks marrying John Youngs in the right timeframe, although there is a big gap between the birth of the first two children and James. There may be other children in between - or it may be the wrong marriage!


Spelling is Doack on James's birth entry, Deak on Martha's.


Possible Christening - Girvan 18 Dec 1814 - Robert Doack and Mary McCredie - probably unlikely since a Margaret Doack married James McCredie in 1835 in Ballantrae.


Another birth - 9 Sep 1806 in Girvan to Gilbert Doak and Margaret Hunter

Another one - 6 Mar 1796 in Girvan to Gilbert Doak and Margaret Peacock
