Anderson Family



Jane/Janet Anderson was born in Tyrone, Ireland, the daughter of James Anderson, in about 1843.


Jane Anderson from the townland of Ramackin, married William McKeown from the townland of Ballintrain, on the 31st May 1857, in the Church of Ireland at Sixmilecross, Tyrone, Ireland.


William McKeown and Jane Anderson had the following children:


Mary Ann McKeown born 24th May 1858 in Cavenreagh, Sixmilecross, Tyrone, Ireland.  Mary married Donald [aka Daniel] McCurdy on 30 December 1881 in St Quivox, Ayrshire, Scotland.


Margaret McEwen born 8th March 1861 at Dalrymple, Ayrshire, Scotland


William McEwan born 15th November 1863 at Coylton, Ayrshire, Scotland


James McKeown born 16th August 1866 at Sixmilecross, Tyrone, Ireland


Robert McEwen born 1st March 1870 at Kirkmichael, Ayrshire, Scotland.  Robert married Agnes Millar on 11th April 1894 in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland.


David McJannet McEwen born 16th October 1874 at Dalrymple, Ayrshire, Scotland  - my great grandfather.


Sarah Hayman McEwen born 18th June 1879 at Dalrymple, Ayrshire, Scotland.



Jane McEwan nee Anderson  died at 9.40pm on the 2nd March 1899 at 89 Green Street, Newton, Ayrshire, Scotland, from Acute Bronchitis.  She was attended by Dr J. R. Watt.  Jane's death certificate states she was the daughter of James Anderson and Eleanor Courtenay.  The informant was her husband William.  I have not been able to find a marriage between James and Eleanor.



I have not been able to discover any more information about this Anderson family, although they are supposedly connected to the Anderson family of Flush, Tyrone, but I have no proof of this.


Any further information on this family would be appreciated via email.
