      Hello Barbara, thank you for visiting. We have only recently laid stone chips on the Arthur lair and looks even better now, Are you a descendant of the Arthurs?

        Yes I am but only through marriage. I do have all of them on my Family Tree. Also have other family from New Cumnock (Lennox). Could I have your permission to add the photos to my Tree if I acknowledge they are from your site please.

      Hello
      Having stumbled across this when looking up the Arthur family of New Cumnock I hope you do not mind my messaging you. My interest in the Arthur family is in the Rev. David Findlay Arthur who was minister at Banchory-Devenick Free Church from 1844. I wonder do you have any information/pictures of him.
      Thankyou
      Iain

        hi Ian,
        I’m afraid I don’t have any photos of David Findlay Arthur. At the Disruption he was minister at Knox Church, Stewarton , near Kilmarnock. In the 1841 Census he is recorded as a preacher living with Findlay family Kilmarnock; probably relatives of his mother Jean Findlay.

        kind regards,
        Bobby

        There is quite a bit of information on him here.
