Re: Misc. Irvines, not necessarily related
Concerning: William Irvine b ca 1733
He was not the son of John Irvin (no e) and Mary Boyd, but Christopher Irvine d 1769 and wife Mary.Only four daughters inherited.No children are named in the incomplete will.Since his estate was partially settled over many years, it appears near certain that the William Irvine, Jr was not born to William and Polly Anthony (no inheritance by the court), but to an earlier, unknown, wife.If so, he was born ca 1757 or earlier (it appears that his ca1767 birth has been determined by subtracting 21 years from his marriage year.There is no question that he and Polly Anthony Irvine Cowan had a relationship until she died.She inherited William's plantation Otter and William Jr came into its possession, presumably by gift from her, since no deed has been found.
Thank you very much for the great effort you are making to put all this Evin, Irvine, etc on the Internet.
Although you have mentioned several Christophers, I have not seen you list the Christopher Irvines or Irvins, which I would much appreciate.Since I cannot contact you directly, perhaps you would contact me email@example.com.
