William AIKEN
« on: Tuesday 18 October 11 20:25 BST (UK) »
According to the 1901 census, my great-grandfather, William Aiken, was born in Cavan - around 1834. He moved to Belfast at some point, and worked as a bookbinder. He was a Presbyterian.  I have been unable to find any Aikens in Cavan and would be very grateful for any info.

Shercock (Glasleck) Presbyterian Church situated a few miles from Shercock on the road to Bailieborough had Aikins families attending. Listed in the financial report for 1865 is Robert Aikins with William Aikins treasurer. In 1879 there is a Robert Aikens and a Mrs Aikens listed and in the early 1900s the name is listed as Eakins. https://www.bailiepublications.com

Many thanks for that info, Les57! The website was helpful too.  I watched the BBC programme about Bailieborough that it mentioned, and the Scottish Plantation link explains why they would have settled there.  Lots to investigate now. Thanks again!
