Looking for any leads on my ggggGrandfather, John Brackenrig (blacksmith) who married Mary McLure on May 28 1809 Middle Church, Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. They may have resided near Eaglesham, Renfrewshire 1809-1811. Probable parents of John Brackenrig are Walter Brackenrig and Isabell Miller but not sure.Most of our family was in the Greenock and Paisley areas with connections to Pollock, Mack, Hagan, Paton, McKay, Adams and Robertson. The name appears with many different spellings such as Brackenridge, Brakenridge, Breakenridge Breakenrigg etc. This is still unsolved as of August 2014.
