Research KEWN in Liverpool, Lancashire, England & WORLDWIDE

Posted: 13 May 2004 9:31PM GMT
Classification: Query
I am researching the surname KEWN and it's variants worldwide.
My ancestor James Carrell KEWN was born in 1827 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Baptism: 28 SEP 1827 St Nicholas C/E, Liverpool, Lancashire 1
Occupation: Mariner 1849
Marriage 1 Mary Drake JONES born 1823 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England (Married: 1848 in Lancashire, England)

Samuel William KEWN b: 18 MAR 1849 in 1 Sun St., Toxteth Park, Lancaster, Eng
James Carroll KEWN b: 1852 in possibly Toxteth Park, Lancaster, Eng (married Sarah STUART/STEWART)
Mary KEWN b: 1853 in Lancashire, England

KEWN grandson James Carroll KEWN born 1872.

Also seeking any information regarding:
Marriages Dec 1887 KEWN James Ormskirk 8b 1018
Deaths Dec 1896 Kewn James 87 Ormskirk 8b 540

Family lore states the family originated in Isle of Man(?) as a family member had always been told by her Mother that
prior to Liverpool, James KEWN Jnr branch of the Kewns had come from the Isle of Man and that prior to that, the name was Scottish and was originally MacKewn or McKewn or some such spelling. No-one seems to know for sure why the Mc or Mac
part was dropped at some stage but she gathered that the Isle of Man and Scotland bit of the history was way, way back. When she visited the Isle of Man and visited the Family History Centre, there were lots of Kewns listed but mostly spelt differently -Keown

I am most interested to hear from anyone with KEWN (and its variants) interests anywhere in the world and am seeking any connection to the following family in the 1881 Census
Name Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation
Charles KEWN Head M Male 42 Liverpool, Lancashire, England Shipwright (born ca.1839)
Mary KEWN Wife M Female 31 Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Charles KEWN Son Male 13 Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Matilda KEWN Dau Female 10 Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Source Information:
Dwelling 40 Denbigh St
Census Place Bootle Cum Linacre, Lancashire, England

Even if there is no connection I will try and assistance with any research possible
