Templeton, Kennedy, McCreadie, Forgie ...
« on: Thursday 20 August 09 06:38 BST (UK) »
I was recently in Ayrshire Scotland researching Templeton, Kennedy, McCreadie, Forgie and was interested to see these names listed by other rootschat members. There is very little information pre 1800 but it would be interesting to compare notes. My family links are with Colmonell, Ballantrae and Lendalfoot.

Me too. My McCreadies had ties with Ballantrae, Colmonell, Ardrossan and Saltcoats.

Apologies. In my preceding, amend Colmonell to Lendalfoot.

Hello,just wondered if this is the same McCreadie family that i am trying to trace? Martha Calvert married Hugh Joseph Clarke at Ardrossan in 1918, her mother is given as Helen m/s McCreadie. at Martha's death in 1931 the mother is given as Agnes m/s McCready. any information would be appreciated. regards Del.

G'day Del80
Have you submitted your enquiry to www.threetowners.com ?
It's a website for Saltcoats, Ardrossan & Stevenson with a genealogy section & registration is free.

I'll check my holdings for the other names you mention but they don't ring any bells at the moment.

Hi Q98,Thanks for info. I see both Helen & Agnes McCredie appear on your list, Martha Calvert was born in 1896,so if Helen was her mother she would have given birth at age 46, possible I suppose. Will try the site you mention, look's interesting. One last thing,where is Bougang? Thanks again, regards Del.
