The Ryburns in Kintyre

Postby RodRyburn » Tue Sep 14, 2010 7:59 am

My my name is Roderick James Ryburn and my great grandfather, Robert McNair Ryburn, departed from Gartvaigh, near Southend, for Auckland, New Zealand, in 1859. Although I was born in Dunedin, NZ, I and most of my family now live in Australia -- to be precise, Canberra for me and my wife.

My earliest ancestors in Kintyre were John Ryburn and Janet Jameison, who were in Backs Farm by 1659. John was a tacksman in 1666, and is mentioned in Andrew McKerral's excellent book "Kintyre in the 17th Century". I recently found his Testamnet Dative on ScotlandsPeople website -- he died at Uigle in 1705 and his son Mathew of Killeonan was the executor. Mathew was probably my g X 5 grandfather. In later years my ancestors inhabited several farms in and around Drumlemble. My Gx2 grandfather was a baker on Main Street in Campbeltown, probably at the same site as H McIlcherie & Son today.

Enough of dry old genealogy. You can see it all on my website "The History of the Ryburns" at http://www.netspeed.com.au/rryburn/Kintyre.html, including the mob in Ayrshire before they came to Kintyre.

Robert McNair Ryburn was my great grandfather, who arrived in Auckland, NZ, in 1859. There are now over 200 Ryburns in New Zealand. See "The History of the Ryburns" at http://www.netspeed.com.au/rryburn/default.htm
