Marshall page now added

I’ve just added a new page about my Marshall ancestors. To read it, click on “Marshall” in the header.

My Marshall ancestors were from Kilmaurs and Kilmarnock, but seem to have originated in Renfrewshire. The earliest Marshall I can trace back to was a tinker and then a brazier (brass worker). His descendants became metal workers, saddlers and shoemakers.

Marshall is quite a common name, so tracing them is a bit tricky when you go back to the 1700s and earlier when records, if they exist at all, don’t give much detail.
