Biographical notes

No parish register entry for the birth of David Allan in Barr has apparently survived. He is mentioned in the family reminiscences of Wallace Allan (1848 - 1931) written in 1930:

quote: David Allan - Great Grandfather - born in Barr, wife's name Margt Boyd, farmer's daughter [born] near Irvine. [He] Died comparatively young [last child born 1798] - went from Barr to Stranraer to live

This information is supported by the Stranraer Parish Registers which record the marriage of David Allan and Margaret Boyd on 2nd March 1780. Occupation of Shoemaker on the death certificates of his children.
