Places of interest

July 18, 2017

I’ve spent the past couple of weeks, tying up loose ends in my research. Of which there are so many! And also reflecting on the places that were the birth place of many of my ancestors. Here are just a few places of interest to my family history and the surnames associated which each place.

Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire – Taylor and Lloyd

Glenshiel Ross-Shire  – Morison
Lanarkshire – Louden

Inver, Donegal – Boyle
Kilkenny – Ireland
Cork – Ahern

Bedfordshire – Waters
Guilden Morden, Cambridgeshire – Izzard
Gamblingay, Cambridgeshire – Waters
London – Jones
Kent – Lowe
Steeple, Ashton, Wiltshire – Cox

Jamaica – McEwan/McQueen

As you can see, most of my acestors originate from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Except for the Jamaica connection. My great great grandfather, Thomas James Jonathan McQueen was born in Jamaica, but his father was born in Scotland.
