Ancestors of Interest

Alan is interested in all his ancestors and the life and social history around them. However you might want to narrow it down to these two-

John Potter, a Hanged Covenanter, captured in Ayrshire and taken to Edinburgh to be hanged

and

William Runciman of Crail , who drowned at an early age in a fishing tragedy.

There are also 3 other Runciman 'lineages' which thanks to DNA testing are now discovered to be branches of the same lineage with a Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) in the 1600s, most likely in East Lothian or the Scottish Borders.

In 2004 a history of the William Runciman of Crail line was published. A second edition is being prepared to include all the updates and discoveries. By linking to WikiTree Personal Profiles the information in this 2nd edition is always current and always accessible.

Note: this 2nd edition is in its very early stages so please be prepared to use your vision of how it'll all work when we have the appropriate links showing!! We also seek as many contributions as possible from those on our Crail line. Stories, biographies, anything you think will be of interest to future generations. Please leave something for all the grandchildren!

Hi Alan. I think I fixed a broken link that was reported via an automated system. It should be in the change history.

Thank you Alan. One of the unsolved family mysteries is a tradition that Lillias' brother James inherited property in Jamaica from a relative named Buchanan, and Jean Buchanan is the only one we've found. If you can do a profile on her, perhaps I can push it further to identify that relative.

Thanks Alan. I haven't looked at the Potter line in many years. Seems like a lot of people have added children. I'll work on sorting through and eliminate the ones that don't belong.

Hi Alan

Thank you for your kind words. It would be good if we can achieve an excellent resource for generations to come, as those who are not interested at the moment maybe one day. Regards Diane

Hi Alan

Thanks for the warm welcome. Looks like I've definitely come to the right place. Lorna Henderson has just linked me with my direct ancestral line so hopefully I'll be able to make some connections. I'm off to visit family this weekend so haven't time to do much but I've downloaded my GEDCOM from Genes Reunited and will upload to Wiki Tree next week. Catch you soon Geoff
