Hi Lori. My great-grandfather is William Bowden Gaw, born in Ballywalter, Down in 1868. He traveled to America with his brother James @ 1888. I believe their mother may have been Agnes Bowden Gaw, and father Thomas? We have a letter in our family that once belonged to William, from a nephew in Ballywalter. The letter asks for money and that his mother (William's sister) Maggie was fine. James later settled in NYC and William in Kansas City. William became a cattle inspector with the US Govt and married Anne Tolson @ 1895. They had three children, my grandfather Norman was born in Kansas City, KS in 1900. I too am interested in the Gaws from Ballywalter, I understand there was a large concentration of the family there and I believe they originally came from England. I have found the surname Gaw in many British surname books. It doesn't seem to be an Irish Clan. I would appreciate hearing more info on your family. Thank you, Wendy Gaw Armstrong

Curiously the 1886 Directory for Ballywalter/ Down does not list any Gaws although the list may not be complete. The name Gaw is found in nearby Groomsport and the Bangor Abbey Graveyard lists a James Gaw of Groomsport whose son, Campbell died July 17, 1856 aged 4 years
In 1863 James Gaw is listed as a Groomsport Farmer.
The Ulster Historical Foundation in Belfast may have published the gravestone inscriptions for Ballywalter and this may of help. It could be Vo. 16 but you should ask them to make sure. In 1886 A William Boden is listed as a cooper in Ballywalter. Gaw and MacGaw are a variant of MacCaw and derives from the Gaelic Mag Adhaimh, a local form of Adam. It is also the name of a branch of the Scots clan MacFarlane.

Hello Hugh -
I'm sorry I haven't replied to you sooner. Thank you so very much for your information. I have just recently been informed by a family member that William Bowden Gaw's parents are James Andrew Bowden Gaw and Mary Harrison. It seems that a cousin has been in possession of two bibles, one for William and the other for his brother James, from their christenings (presbyterian). I'm anxiously waiting for more information on theses bibles ie; church, year, etc. Your information on James Gaw may prove to be very valuable! I will be in touch when I learn more. Thank you again! Wendy Armstrong
