Sir William Honyman, 1st Baronet[edit]

Hi BrownHairedGirl, just wanted to say thanks for starting the article Sir William Honyman, 1st Baronet. It is within my realm of interest. I made a cople of minor fixes to the article.QuintusPetillius (talk) 13:35, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

@QuintusPetillius: Thanks! He turned out to be a more interesting character than I first thought. Handsomely rewarded for persecuting Thomas Muir of Huntershill, and a pioneer of the clearances.
Glad you enjoyed the article. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 16:09, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
I actually have a distant ancestor who was named Honyman after him, as a first name. I don't think they were related but my ancestors were tenants on his estate in Armadale, Sutherland. As such he is of particular interest to me. Just one thing though I think the original title of the article was better.QuintusPetillius (talk) 18:15, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
@QuintusPetillius:Wow, a real connection. Were your ancestors among the people he cleared out?
Per WP:NCPEER, the simple title is the long-standing convention for unambiguous baronets. It was recently inverted without consensus by one editor, and have just reverted that change. The discussion is at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (royalty and nobility)#Baronet_naming_policy_-_suggest_reversal. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 18:55, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi, my direct ancestor escaped being cleared out but eventually moved from Armadale, Sutherland down to Edinburgh anyway. One of his brothers was named Honyman Munro and was baptised in 1806 in Armadale, parish of Farr, Sutherland, but I am not entirely sure what happened to him and some of the others, so it is possible that he and some of the others could have been "cleared" out. As it happens the mother was a Mackay who might well have been descended from the Mackays of Skerray who in turn were descended from John Mackay, 1st of Strathy - who would have been the ancestor of the Mckay of Strathy that you mention in the article. So it is possible that they were related but if so then it would have been very distant and its not confirmed anyway. My Mackay ancestor owned an Inn in Armadale, that I know was open in 1821.QuintusPetillius (talk) 19:13, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

my edits[edit]

hi, all of my edits seem to have been reverted, even ones where I left helpful links to ukpollingreport on the uk constituency pages - why is that?Oxr033 (talk) 12:06, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
