Graham, Johnston, Simpson, Lamont etc
« on: Monday 03 April 06 04:33 BST (UK) »
 Hi all,
 
I have found a connection to the Graham family residing in North Bute from at least 1829 to 1871.  Alexander Graham married Janet Johnston in 1829 at Rothesay. 
 
I have a good amount of information about this family, with connections to the families of Simpson, Lamont, McDermid and of course Johnston.  There is also mention of a connection to the Campbell family. Also the Glasgow families of McQueen and Binnie. 
 
My interest in this family group was stirred by one of the Graham descendents marrying William Easton, part of my main paternal line.

Hi there,

It is a distant connection.  I have found some loose links to Campbells in Bute, Glasgow, Ayr, Ireland, Caithness and Stirling.  None of them are in my main tree branches, just some detours I tool along the way because I was curious.

Janets Father was HUGH a Farmer in West St Kalnaig

Thank you Trish,

I knew where they were from, but from the census, not the marriage details.  I will look it up.  I had such fun researching this side branch, learning a lot about Bute and the farm 'Scarrel' which is visible on old maps. The Johnstons and Grahams were well established families on Bute, so I really enjoyed researching them!
