    A branch of the Flushtown and Bawn Andersons that have traced ancestry back to John Knox’s church at Haddingtonaround the 1530’s but need more information about who were members of that church, because one of our ancestors was possibly married by Knox. What early written sources are there for pursuing these lines further-if any?

      Interested in your question especially as you have got your family back so far.I have only managed mine to the 1700’s.
      Interested to know if you are the same WSA that I knew in London in 1970’s.

  2. Marie Gillander, Sweden

    Very interesting article!
    Do you know if there is any Gillanders who migrated to Sweden?

    I have always wanted to trace back my Anderson roots. I have about 10 generations from my current children back to John Anderson Born @1769 in Scotland. I have a detailed American family history that gets less sure at the time of Arrival from the old country. I would love to share what I have and would love to connect more links in the family tree.

    Warm Regards

    Stand Sure

    I’m heading to Scotland in September, 2017. My great-grandfather was Charles Anderson Ward – the name repeats every generation back to their arrival in the Carolina’s (U.S.) after Culloden. Would be interested to see/visit any relatives who might be around. Yes, I know – very far back relatives – but just throwing it out there…..Thanks!

    I realize your post is older now, but I too have a relative who came from Northern Ireland to US and his name was William Anderson he arrived in 1772 to North Caolina. His father was Charles Anderson and he was from Fife Scotland. I have a lady named Kate Connolly and Another man named Keith Beattie who are local experts doing research for my family right now regarding our history. If you would like to compare history I would be glad to do so. Please respond to my email below at to talk further.

    We have a place in NI and in the states in Texas. My husband i from over there. We actually have a home within 6 miles of the monument that was erected to the families who left with William Martin in 1772.

    I am in the states now, but have a family member who is taking care of things for us there while we are away I could connect you with if we were away.
