This is a vague sort of request but I'm hoping it might ring bells with someone.

I am actually researching McNaughton/tan's of the Gorbals and beyond and have recently discovered that one Daniel McN was the illegitimate son of Daniel McN snr and ? Urie, daughter of Farmer Urie of Muirhouses. Mother Urie died in the early 1820s and son Daniel went to live with Daniel snr.

In Daniel snr's Will in the 1850s there is some land left to one John Urie - but we have no idea whether there is any connection here or not.

Can anyone help please - so far we have been unable to find any informationr regarding the girl's name or anything else about her for that matter. Daniel jnr would have been born about 1810 (there's some confusion over his age!).

MTIA and with fingers crossed.
