Thanks for your email. Yes, we are talking about the same Janet Allan, Her father David was drowned off Blakeney on 19th Nov 1875 when 3 St Monans & 2 Cellardyke boats were lost. Also lost was his son, Robert, his brother William and his son Alexander, as well as his brother in law Alexander Irvine. Janet Allan was in effect my mothers fathers mother!. My mothers mothers granny was also an Allan, Euphemia Allan born 1843 who married John Mayes. So far I haven't been able to connect them. I would be very interested in getting in touch with your contact in Canada as he may be able to help in other ways as I am still struggling to find the father of Thomas Aitken, the one who married Isabella Marr, who in turn had William. I will see what I can find out about the fishing boat you mention when I next go to St Monans, usually a few times a month.
