Hi,
it seems we have a connection William Gunn married an Isabella Syme( I have been told for years it was henderson so I have been at a stalemate.
 Their son Robert Gunn married Wilhelmina Cunningham. He was born 1828. Would love to trade info if this is the right line. They had a son William Alexander Gunn whom married Octavia Vendy.
regards,
Debbie.

Hi All,

 I'm actually just writing up the Gunns of Achanaichan /  Achaneccan so I'm pleased to get the information.  May I suggest you  firstly enter 'Robert Gunn of Achaneccan' on the computer and read lots in the Sage book  'Memorabilia Domestica' which will turn up? I am assuming we are all the same as the Sage book points out 'Achaneccan' is only a farm.

I am am painfully working through an 1868 Family tree of the various Chief lines of the Clan Gunn; the Achanaichan line is 'William in Achanaichan the 2nd son of Donald the Scholar'. Donald 'the Scholar' Gunn is second son of 'William beag / bheg'  whose older brother was 'William mhor' Chief of the Clan Gunn. I should be be able to write up this line in a couple of days, especially given the new information.

However I have now got a blog for my sins. May I suggest you look at http://clangunn1.blogspot.co.uk/ ? The current entry concerns Donald the Scholar's first son (yours is the second, as I have said) and then you can wander down the other other Chief lines as you go down the blog. Note the 1868 family tree I am using... 

It would be sensible to read up about the contentious Clan Gunn Family Convention / Chief issues there as well, as it relates to you if you can prove things...

Cheers
Alastair (not on that line, sorry- a much more obscure one...)

Hi I have some photos from the Gunn family and Im not entirely sure who they are. I have a few photos that I think that they are Alexander Gunn and Ellen Scanlan as we;; of a few that I think are their children.
Would anyone be willing to have a look at them and help identify who they are?

Hi,

I am compiling the Vendy tree for a client and have all the Vendy info in it, if you are willing to trade?
