There are numerous Walter Cowans (surprisingly)! but all miles away from Dornoch at the time & you have to view the VRs to find out their occs. as they're not listed on the indexes

I had a quick check through the Dornock, Dumfries VRs & both surnames appear 1905/15/20

Is it likely for Christopher to have been related to Joseph Jordan?

It just seems a strange coincidence both surnames are in the same area/same eras?

Did both surnames appear ie Jordan or Christopher jordan, and Joseph Jordan? I've  no idea if Christopher had a relative there or left Dublin with one Annie.

Sorry it wasn't clear, both surnames Jordan & Cowan are on the VRs.

Not Christopher but a Joseph Jordan & a Walter Cowan both Dumfries areas.

There's one crucial feature of Irish immigration to Britain that you should be aware of: there are no passenger lists of people who crossed the Irish Sea by ship.........They were, to all intents and purposes, internal migrants.
This is because Ireland was a part of Britain until 1922;

A bit earlier than your dates but may be connected to Walter Cowan although you would need to do some digging as none of these were born in Dornoch.

1901

Skibo Barracks, Dornoch, Sutherland (I couldn’t find anything about this place)

Robert Cowan 20 b Ayr, Ayrshire, Plumber

Source Citation
Parish: Dornoch; ED: 5; Page: 9; Line: 15; Roll: CSSCT1901_13

Others listed & born different places had these occupations;

Blacksmiths
Electrical Engineers
File Fevers (The original image would confirm what this is)?
Heating Engineers
Joiner Apprentice
Joiners
Mosaic Worker
Sculptor


Original on scotlandspeople.gov.uk
COWAN ROBERT 20
1901
047/ 5/ 9 Dornoch, Sutherland

Also;

COWAN JOHN HOPE 21
1911
047/ 4/ 8 Dornoch, Sutherland

You would need to look at the original to see where he was living & his occ.

He’s traceable on scotlandspeople.gov.uk
