I have begun to investigate a possible Ayson link to my family tree. My 4th Great Grandparents are William Grewar and Helen McIntosh, married and died in Glenisla, Angus (Forfarshire) Scotland in 1800's.I believe Helen's parents are McIntosh and Ayson. (He - Donald and she ?Margaret? Janet?).If you have Ayson links and would like to help me sort through the local families, it would be greatly appreciated.
Most of the information asserts that the Ayson family lived around Kirkmichael, Perthshire Scotland but there is little or no evidence of them living there now. New Zealand sems to be the largest concentration of Aysons now, but some have been found in the US and Phillipines!
I have maps and pictures of some of the places they lived, plus I plan to visit again soon to look specifically for their graves in some of the associated church yards.
I look forwad to hearing from Ayson relatves soon!
