I have a Peter Maxwell who served in the English army. He married Ann Scott and they had a daughter named Ann, a native of Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim. Ann Maxwell married Michael Byrne and they had a daughter named Margaret born around 1849 in Carrick-on-Shannon. Ann, Margaret, and possibly Michael arrived in NYC in 1850.

Hello Jim,

Our ancestors, Maxwell, we believe moved from County Down, Ireland to America circa 1780-1785

Our Charles Maxwell was born 1777 Ireland died 1857 Ohio. He married a Sarah (unknown surname) who was born 1776 Pennsylvania, America.

Their daughter Frances Maxwell born 1806 died 1880 Ohio married a William Jones born 1807 died 1843.
Here are their children:

Louisa G Jones 1829–1888
Harriet J Jones 1832–1914
Charles M. Jones 1833–1878
Matilda A. Jones 1839–1926

Any chance of a connection to your Maxwell/Jones lines?
We do not know William Jones's ancestry.

Good luck to all searching,
Christine Joy Maxwell

Hello, I am wondering if you have any iformation on Thomas John Maxwell b. 1862 in Ireland(parents John and Margaret Maxwell). emigrated abt 1881 into Hamilton, Ontario, Canada area. Married Charlotte Farrell in June 1882 at the Presbyterian church in Wentworth, hammilton, Ontario, Canada. They had three children in Wentworth, and then moved down to Chicago and are present on the 1900 census. I am trying to find out where in Ireland they came from? and if they moved to Ontario to be closer to others in the Maxwell Clan? any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Hello I am interested in the Maxwells of Kirkcubrightshire.
I am looking at a George Maxwell b1869 that married a Janet Scott in 1889 at Kirkcumbrightshire. Janet must have been previously married or had children out of wedlock as there are two children named scott and two yonger ones named Maxwell (John Maxwell b1889 and Elizabeth Maxwell b 1891). On the Census record of 1891 and 1901.

George's father was John Maxwell and mother Janet

Any clues for me?
