I am looking into the Anderson family of Govan and have a Susanna Anderson who married a Hiram Jennett in Govan in 1887. Susanna is a sister of my direct relative. Hirams parents were James Jennett and Louisa Griffith. Jennett is quite an unusual name for Scotland. Seems Hiram was from Ireland - as was Susanna but they came to Govan and married there - that is all I know at present. I am keen to know which part of Ireland the Andersons came from and am looking at all clues at present. Must be the same family as it is an unusual name.

Have just found out that Hiram Jennett (who married Susanna Anderson) was the brother of William James Jennette father of your Ellen Jennett born in 1885. Ellen Jennett had a brother Hiram who must have been named after his uncle Hiram who was married to Susanna Anderson. William James Jennett married Ellen Lysk on July 16th 1877 in Lurgan, Armagh. I am hoping that this leads me to my Andersons who could be from the same place.

Hi Gillian, I had a list of all the Jennetts who lived at 1204 Govan Road, Glasgow, you can pick it up from the 1901 Census Scotland. Hiram appears on that as does my great gran. My middle name is Louise after my great aunt (Ellen's sister) and my own gran. Louise did go back to Ireland and my mum remembers going on a visit to meet her cousins. I'll try to find out more and get back to you. My email address is nikki.hamilton@tiscali.co.uk if you want to message me there. I also found a William Sutherland who I think is Louise's great grandson. Speak soon xxx
