My Strachan ancestors came from Ayrshire, and were nearly all coal miners or coal miners’ wives.
I’ve divided this section into several pages as I’ve done a great deal of research into the lives of my Strachan ancestors and their extended families. So if you’re interested in the Strachan line, have a look at the following pages:
– Strachan ancestors overview
– Strachan in Ayrshire prior to 1771
– The story of Thomas Strachan b. 1749 and Susannah Alexander b. 1752, and their children
– Golden Wedding of Janet Strachan born 1839
More will be added as and when I’ve had a chance to write up my notes.
