RE: [Peterhead] Re: William Allan shipmaster
- Hi Jim,
I replied to Janet before I read your e-mail. That is exactly the John Allan I was looking for, so we must be related. John Allan would be my great great grandfather. I lived most of my life in Aberdeen, but our family now lives in Portugal. I shall have a look at your website before I ask any more questions.

The William Allan you mentioned was born 1823 To John Allan (born 1799) and Margaret Forrest. John Allan born 1799 is the son of John Allan (born 1760) And Margaret Bruce. John Allan born abt 1819 is the son of John Allan and Margaret Forrest. The john Allan born 1760, I believe his parents were William Allan and Margaret Johnston but I have not found proof of this.

- Hi DaveWe are certainly related. My line comes down through the eldest son ( John b 1819 ) of John Allan and Margaret Forrest. John Allan 1819 m Penelope Boyd Milne and their son John Allan b 1845 m Mary Ann Gow. My grandfather Charles Scott Allan b 1881 was the son of John Allan and Mary Ann Gow. Charles ended up in New Zealand with his wife who was born in Larbert Stirlingshire.You will find Jim Allan's web page useful and if I can help at all just ask.I visited Peterhead about 3 years ago. The sun was shining the sea was sparkling and there was a lovely view from St Peters old churchyard. My cousins and I were all so pleased to have seen the area on a nice day. Would love to go back again.RegardsJanet
