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
William Runciman of Crail , who drowned at an early age in a fishing tragedy,
some facts and comments about the early Runciman ancestors are summarised in The Early Generations.
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. Lorna Henderson manages a Runciman One Name Study which gives a good insight to our Crail Line's relationship to the other DNA-related lines - as well as the non-related lines.
I manage these Runciman histories -
Runciman Lineage 1b-The Early Generations As the name implies this Profile covers the latest research known of the earliest ancestors on my 'Crail' Line.
Crail Fishing Disaster History and Latest News. Alan is a descendant of William of Crail who drowned with 7 others in the 1765 Crail Fishing Disaster. A 250th anniversary commemoration for the drownings was held in Crail on 16 May 2015.
Scotland and Beyond currently a work-in-progress - view the latest link. In 2004 a history of the William Runciman of Crail line was published. The latest research & continuing updates are now published on the web rather than in print. At the same time Jen Jelley & Diane Middleton, compilers & publishers of the 2004 publication kindly agreed to make their publication available to view online. This Profile contains the link.
The Runciman Cradle Tour provides the reader interested in seeing some of our ancestral locations with a suggested itinerary and background.
Similarily there is a Crail Trail for those who wish to visit where William of Crail spent his married/working life and eventually to meet his early death from drowning.
