Re: Percy and McElwain ca. pre and mid 1800s Aukland and Ireland
This line of McElwains are my family. There are probably 6 or more original families in NZ. May I know who you are researching for, as you don't appear to be a McElwain. My Mary Anne (née HUGHES) McELWAIN was born and died in Ireland. 8 children that I know of. You have George McElwaindied 1910 and Margaret 1940. But they are not together only cousins by marriage and shouldn't be bracketed, causes confusion.
