Pat(t)erson Ancestors. D&G Area
« on: Tuesday 30 October 07 23:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi there,

             I am searching for Pat(t)erson's connected with SW Scotland and Newton Stewart, Penninghame, Rerrick, Minnigaff, Blackcraig,Mochrum, Girvan and Dalbeatties areas specifically..
Many of my ancestors were Tailors working the textile industry in and around Newton Stewart and also working as Masons, Miners and Quarry workers.

Our Patersons married into the following example of names in the area from 1749- 1950..

Allan, Adam, McLachlan, Burns, Brown, McClure, Milroy, Heron, Chisholm, Hornel, Kelly, Robertson, Ewart, Jamieson, Welsh and Paterson

The name Paterson seems to have changed from recent times being two T Ts to the distant years when it was written with only one T..

Look forward to connecting with any that might connect in some way:-)

Happy Hunting.

Jim Patterson-Brewin
