Euphan/Euphemia how many generations
« on: Monday 06 May 19 14:13 BST (UK) »
When i 1st came across the name Euphemia RAMSEY in my tree I thought it was very exotic but now I know that she was named after her Grandmother Euphan McQuarry..b abt 1751 Lanarkshire married to James RAMSEY in Barony 1780

She had at least 8 grandchildren named after her including Effy Stevenson  b1800 and Euphan Baird

I wonder if this given name went further down.the generations and across the continents .

I will make a list of the granddaughtets i have found so far .

Let me know if you know of any descendants who inherited the name .

My grandmother who was born in Dundee in 1891 was Euphemia Dickson.

Fortunately, my older female cousin born in 1936 was named after her.

Thats the most modern so far Dorrie
My Effies were mostly in Lanarkshire
But many of the Ramsey and Stevenson mining families emigrated around 1890.s to Australia  USA etc

Just checked and I can go further back with the name -

My 8 x great grandmother was Euphan Danguell born around 1669 in Fife Scotland.

My 7 x great grandmother was Euphan Duncan  born around 1692 in Fife Scotland.
