I hope that you enjoy browsing through my ancestors.

In common with most family trees mine is incomplete, if you should discover common ancestry please get in touch, we may be able to assist each other!

I started this project about a 3 years ago, and now have a data base of over 3000 names comprising 1000 plus families.  Please be patent the file takes about 30 seconds to load.

On the other hand you will find my direct ancestors by following the "My Ancestors" link on the LHS.

During my research I have discovered a number of "lost" cousins, principally  in America, and I am currently trying to trace a members of the Bell/Howat family which emigrated to New Zealand during the early 1920's, check out the Auckland Bell's, you may recognise them!

Most recently I rediscovered the family of Ellen Spalding Taylor (1884-1917) and John Charles Cassells. Ellen Taylor's early death as the result of diabetes and the remarriage of John Cassells  meant that  although their descendants lived in AYR, almost my home town, for almost 100 years I was unaware of the family until I managed to make contact with Doreen Craig (nee Dandie) in August 2003.

The principal family names are Taylor, Bell, Wilson, Stewart, Tennant, Hepburn, McCarrell, and Stewart, living and working in Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, and Renfrewshire from 1860 till the present.

My grandfather and his father were both Ayrshire dentists with a colourful history read their story The Taylor Dentists also included is a link to the service history of  Thomas T Taylor who served with the RFC and the RAF during WW1 and flew a rather interesting collection of aircraft. He had the distinction of serving in both the Army (RFC) and the RAF.
My "other half" is a "Blair" this family has a long association with Prestwick and the surrounding area, stretching back over 150 years. Blair, Smith, Pyper, Inglis, Scott, McClung, Jamieson and Irvine all feature in this family tree, check out the full Blair name index.

The ancestry report uses 'Ahnentafel' numbering. This means that a person's parent's numbers will be twice as large as the person's number. So if someone's number is 15, her father will be number 30, and mother will be 31. Her child will be number 7.
