Bredon Family, Portadown, Co. Armagh
« on: Wednesday 05 August 09 02:33 BST (UK) »
1.  Dr. Alexander Bredon, M.D., of Ballintaggart House; m. Catherine Breadon, dau of Dr. Joseph Breadon of Montreal, Canada.

2.  Dr. Sir Robert Edward Bredon, (1846-1918); m. 1879 Lily Virginia Banks of San Francisco, CA
He served in China with his brother and brother-in-law.

3.  Juliet Bredon, authoress

2.  Dr. Alexander Macaulay Bredon, b. 1849; m. 1881 Annie Isabella Surtees, dau of Anthony Surtees of San Antonio, TX

3.  Capt.  Alexander Surtees Bredon, b. 1885
3.   Anthony Surtees Bredon, b. 1888
3.  Margaret Sarah Bredon

2.  Major Mathew Boyd Bredon (1855-1900); Deputy Commissioner of Customs, China;
m. 1898 Mary Kerron Birney; both buried at Brompton Cemetery, London

2.  Hester Jane Bredon  m. Sir Robert Hart, son of Henry Hart and Miss Edgar, dau of John Edgar of Ballybreagh with issue.

My question:  One of the Bredons had the middle name of Macaulay while his brother had the middle name of Boyd.  The use of these two surnames indicates that they may have had some connection to the Macaulay family of Cushendall, Co. Antrim.  Related?  Friends?  If possible, I would like to discover this connection.

Don't think you can assume any connection to Cushendall families just because Boyd and Macaulay are used as middle name- perhaps named after relatives, relatives by marriage, doctor, minister, schoolteacher, etc.
Looking at the details you have posted it looks as thought the Bredons might be easier to trace than the 'average' Ulster family- Wills, property records, newspapers, etc.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

[My question:  One of the Bredons had the middle name of Macaulay while his brother had the middle name of Boyd.  The use of these two surnames indicates that they may have had some connection to the Macaulay family of Cushendall, Co. Antrim.  Related?  Friends?  If possible, I would like to discover this connection.]: The answer is yes!.

Alexander Markham m. Sophia Hulbert Falloon. Her brother Edward Leslie Sheppard Falloon m. Eliza Breadon, dg of Joseph Breadon, Esq., Surgeon, R.N. Alexander Markham lived at Cushendall at one time. He named his first son Alexander Macaulay Markham.

Then the Eliza Breadon mentioned here, her sister Katherine Breadon m. Alexander Bredon, M.D., and had a son Robert Breadon, Sir.

I am looking for the parents of this Alexander Markham b:1796/7. Just can't find them. Thanks - Bart.

Hello: I am a bit rusty here, I was looking into the Markham family a while back.

Alexander Macaulay, Major [Glenville Cushendall] m. Alice Stewart: They had a son: Alexander Macaulay, [Glenville Cushendall] m. Mildred Reid: They had a son: Alexander Macaulay, [Glenville Cushendall] d:1766 m. Margaret Boyd (Of Ballycastle): They had at least 4 offspring:

1. Alexander Macaulay, Esq. [Glenville Cushendall], 1766: High Sheriff Antrim County, (1734-1817) m. Julia Henrietta Acheson: They had (Partial): a. Alexander Macaulay, Rev.

2. Hugh Macaulay, [Hugh Macaulay Boyd] (1746-1794): Changed surname to inherit maternal estate.

Sophia Hulbert Falloon parents: Marcus Smith Falloon, [Rector Layde Church Cushendall] + Maria Jane Wolseley.

There were at least 5 consecutive generations of [Alexander Macaulay] in Glenville near Cushendall. If you come across any other Markhams coming in anywhere, let me know!. Thanks - Bart.
