The family rumour was that our ancestors - Fullertons - came from Bute and ended up in east London. But I've gone back as far as I can and can't find where/when they left Scotland for England. As I'm heading to Glasgow and Bute in a few weeks does anyone know how I can climb over my brick wall? Any genealogists who could help me? Tia

    Hi @Ally28

    How far back did you get? Have you tried Scotland's People website? You can also use the family tree builder with a free registration on and you will get 'hints' sent to you to help you further. I have found that combining both these websites has got me further quicker.

    Also sometimes family rumours get distorted as they pass down the generation and you might well have the Scottish connection on a side of your family tree that you didn't expect. Who knows?

    Best of luck with your search  :)
