Thank you for replying. I haven't as yet done much research into the Devlin family tree in ayrshire, just that my Father is William Farrell Devlin.His Father was Wiliam Devlin born in Ayrshire around 1910ish. My grandmother'smaiden name was Agnes McGovern. She was born is Ireland. Haven't had a chance to research further back than this due to surgery on my back.But will resume when I can.Have made two contacts in America where it seems a lot of the Devlin clan emigrated too. A Brian Ruxton formerly Devlin brought up in an orphanage and Cece Devlin McKenzie.Visit her website which is well advertised! She is very helpful www.tartanthemes.com Do feel free to email me if you progress any further.If nothing else the usage of similar forenames within our families could suggest a linkage somewhere, don't you think? Well take care and look forward to hearing your news. Anne..
