My Great, Great Grandfather William Tyson was born in Adtur, 1864. I am trying to find out the reason why his father James Tyson moved to Appin from Cumbria.
James Tyson was a stonemason and I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge of if there was specific masonry work happening around that time that would entice a young man to move north to Appin?
The 1881 census lists William Tyson as living with his Aunt, Margaret McKechnie, in Airds Lodge, does anyone have any information about Airds Lodge?
