Surnames: Crichton, Byrne, Sharp, Carracher
My Great grandfather William Crichton. He had 3 brothers and a sister. The sisters name is unknown but his brothers names were James (who won a Victoria Cross during 1st WW and John.Not much is known about 3rd brother. William was married to Margaret (maiden name unknown). They had 8 children, George, Thomas, Herbert and John, who were twins, James, Elizabeth, Margaret and Mary, who was my Grandmother. She married a John Byrne and their children were Margaret and William, Elizabeth and Mary who both died as babies. There may also have been a Ruth and Thomas but we are unsure. Mary Crichton later married a George Carracher? and had 2 children George and Ruth. Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated. I have a few photo's and a bit more information. Thanks.

Hi Virginia

My Crichtons originally came from Kelty in Fife according to my Mum but she lost touch with her family a lng time ago so they could have moved. Hope this answers your query.

Best wishes

Nikki
