The Cowdens of Kirkmaiden, Scotland Updated November 16, 2001
About Our Family Research
Most of my family ancestors were born and died around Kirkmaiden in Wigtownshire, Scotland. They were there mostly around 1750's to 1900. I was born in Alsager, Cheshire, England and had already traced back to my great,great-grandfather, Peter whom married Grace Kelly in Kirkmaiden February 7th 1861. With a lot of information from a distant descendant of Peter's brother John, I got a lot more information going back to the early 1600's. I would like to thank Joanne from Perth Australia for her kind information. I am currently trying to fill in missing gaps in both sides of our trees.
