Surnames: Vaughan, McKechnie
Did you know that Mary Ann McKechnie (nee Vaughan), born 1837 at Manchester, Lancashire, was the daughter of Joseph and Sarah Vaughan? They probably used Vaughan in their family names because Joseph was the brother of the famous John Vaughan, co-founder of the iron-making firm called Bolckow, Vaughan and Co, established in Middlesbrough, Yorkshire in 1840. John Vaughan died in 1868, and his will dated 1866 bequeathed “to his nephew Joseph Vaughan, of Witton Park, ... 3,000 pounds” (this was the son of Joseph and Sarah who was born 1838 at Crickhowell, Breconshire, and in 1861 was manager of the Witton Park Ironworks, which was owned by Bolckow and Vaughan). John Vaughan also bequeathed 500 pounds to each of his four nieces, daughters of his deceased brother Joseph. There is a statue of John Vaughan at Middlesbrough.
