Surnames: STRACHAN, STRAGHAN
I am looking for any ancestors of James, John or Alexander Strachan who were born in Newton-Upon-Ayr Scotland, they were three brothers. James was born in 1770 or 1772, I do not have any dates on the other two.

I do know that according to a family history written by Mary Brigham Merrithew. That James went to Ireland, John went to England and Alexander remained in Scotland.

If anyone has information or is a descendant of the above. I would like to hear from you.

Hi there

My own family were Strachan's from Ayrshire.

My family were Thomas Strachan and Susannah Alexander who married in Irvine in the 1770's.

I have also done some work for someone from the St Quivox and Newton and Ayr, Strachan's. I was trying to connect them to mine.
I would be pleased to help you

Hi Angela

I'm descended from Thomas Strachan and Susannah Alexander too. I've done a lot of research on this line but can't get any further back that Thomas and Susannah (at least not that can be confirmed). Would love to swap ideas and notes.

Hello, there has to be a connection... when was Jane born... her parents must have been Alexander Strachan and Martha McCall. I have two of their sons... Stewart and John (who my husband's family are descended). Judy

Hi Judy

I have done a lot of work on the Ayrshire Strachan's

My Ancestors are Thomas Strachan and Susannah Alexander who married in Irvine in the 1770's.
Their son Robert is my ancestor.

I do also know about your Strachan's from St Quivox also.

I have done some work for someone in the USA about them?

The Strachan's were my Dad's family. However my Mum a Montgomery great grandfather Hugh Montgomery married possibly 3 times. His third wife was Margaret Strachan daughter of Alexander Strachan and Martha McCall. I am descended from his first wife Mary Grant.
I still do a lot of research although not much on my own line of late. My files need updated, which I am working on.
I have spent a lot of time over the past 2 years photographing and transcribing gravestones in Ayrshire and I am working on my 3rd book on them. I have done Riccarton - Kaimshill, Old High Kirk Kilmarnock, Dreghorn in progress, Kilmaurs in progress. I have had little time to correspond with people. However I would like this to change,
Best wishes and good to hear from you, let me know where you fit into this family.
