My late husband is descended from the Ruan Family of St.Croix. As I am the self-appointed family historian, I am very interested in anything to do with the Ruan Family.
My husband was Glyndwr Gordon Hansen, son of Gordon Edward Hansen, son of Robert Hansen, son of William Hansen and Catherine Ruan, daughter of William Heyliger Ruan and Christina Dumbrech. William was the son of William Ruan and Elizabeth Heyliger.This William was the son of John Ruan and Rebecca Richardson. John was the son of William Ruan and Susanna ?.
Robert Hansen migrated to Australia from St.Thomas after doing a degree in Engineering in Hamburg. His father, William Hansen, was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1809.
Most interested to hear more of the Ruan Family. We live in New South Wales Australia.
