I am interested in Alexanders all around the coast line of Great Britain and Ireland.
My particular interest is in Co. Antrim in the north of Ireland where my grandfather, Alexander Erskine Alexander was born on 2nd April 1879. I am interested in the Durham connection as he married Anne Christina De Banke Gunderson in Durham on 18th April 1905.
Alexander and Christina settled in the north of Ireland and their children remained in this area. The name Blackett is in the family line which also seems to point to a Durham connection.
As a matter of interest does your research at this stage show any of your Alexanders being involved in coal, shipping or timber businesses and were there any master mariners in any of the families ?
