David Andrew - Eden Farm

Postby Cyrena OBrien » Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:16 am

I am looking for information on tenants with the last name of Andrew. David Andrew born in Southend in 1764 - married in 1790 to Elizabeth Mitchell. Children were Archibald, Elizabeth, James, Nancy, Jean, Jennet, David, Mary, William and Margaret. My line is through their son David A. - he was married to Janet Huie. I hope you can help. We were told all were on Eden (Aden) farm.

Hi Cyrena..., welcome to the Kintyre Forum.

Don't quite know what you mean by "tenants"! Tenants of Eden farm, Southend ?
On Ancestry, there are 18 trees provding information..., perhaps one of them is your own ?
Have you tried http://www.rootschat.com/forum/argyllshire/ They are generally excellent in providing help.

Kind Regards..., Iain. :wink:

PS
The farm still exists...

I had a look at the Farm Horse Tax rolls for 1797 for the Andrew family,

Kilcolmkiln & Kilblaan parish

David Andrew snr, Edan, 4 horses, 3 liable for tax, 6 shillings tax
David Andrew jun, Edan, 2 horses, 2 liable for tax, 4 shillings tax

So the Andrew family were def at Eden farm.
