Perthshire / Re: McGregor, McLaren, McKerrachers

Hi Jan,
I don't think we have a connection. My 3x great grandfather is Malcolm McKerracher or McKercher born at Fortingall in 1796 and son of Donald McKercher and Christian McLellan.
Thanks for replying .

Hi Jan,
    I am interested in your McKerracher connection as I am also researching McKerrachers from Glen Lyon. I know from looking at records that there were a lot of McKerrachers in that area but if you can give me a few details of the names you are researching we can see if they connect in any way.

Derry (Londonderry) / Re: Thomas Stuart Hanna and Family, Londonderry, Ireland

Thanks for the personal message I am sorry that I can't reply that way but I haven't yet made enough posts.
I am researching the Hanna family but don't think I can help . My Hannas are fom The Kilkeel area in County Down and I haven't managed to go any further back than William Hanna who died in 1877 and was married to Mary Ann Hamilton  who died in 1878. They had 10 children and their son William and his wife Nancy McBride are my great grandparents. As far as I can tell they all farmed at Derryoge near Kilkeel. I do know that there were or are a lot of Hannas in that area. Sorry I can't be of any more help.

Lanarkshire / Re: BRAYNION

Hi there,
 Don't know if this will be any help but I have been researching the name Breingan.  They are mainly in the Perthshire and Clackmannanshire area and have found that within the same family the spelling of the name varies from record to record.

I have found Breingan recorded as Braynion, Brainion, Bringan, Bringans, Brangan and in one record Brennan. Have no idea what the original name really was.

I have a William Breingan born in Alva in 1858 married to an Isabella Bennett. I have found 10 children for them born in Rottearn, Dunblane. The eldest two were John Braynion 1780 and William Braynion 1783. The rest of the family were Breingan although Margaret 1801 is recorded as Braynion when she gets married. William and Isabella are my 4x great grandparents and my branch of the family spell it Breingan but some of their descendants are Bringan and it could be that some of the other alternative spellings have been used as well. I googled the name and found that somone had already done research on the name and I was able
to check the information with the records.
Hope this is of some use.
Good luck
