Surnames: Birkmyre, Aitken, Somerville
I'm interested in corresponding with anyone related to this family:

William BIRKMYRE was born in 1802. He died on 8 Jan 1862 in Ashgrove, (thought to be around the Bouverie Street area), Port Glasgow, Scotland. William married Margaret AITKEN, daughter of John AITKEN and Isabella SCOTLAND. Margaret was born in 1804/1805 in Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland. She died on 20 Jun 1883 in Broom Lodge, Kilmacolm, Scotland.

They had the following known descendants:

1. Henry BIRKMYRE was born in 1832. He died in 1900. Henry married Margaret SOMERVILLE daughter of James SOMERVILLE and Margaret SCOTLAND on 24 Jun 1854 in Irvine, Scotland. Margaret was born in 1831. She died on 26 Mar 1889. Margaret and Henry were first cousins once removed. Margaret’s grandparents and Henry’s great grandparents were Thomas SCOTLAND and Margaret CLARK.

1a Henry and Margaret were the parents of Sir Archibald BIRKMYRE, who was born on 28 Jun 1875 in Springbank House, Kilmacolm, Scotland and died on 24 Jun 1935. Archibald married Anne BLACK. Archibald and Anne had the following children:

1ai Sir Henry BIRKMYRE was born on 24 Mar 1898. He died in 1992. Henry married Doris Gertrude SMITH on 7 Mar 1922.

From mutliple sources it would appear that Ewan and Jeannie were separated or divorced and all of their known children went by the surname of AITKEN. Isabella was born in 1850. She died on 5 Oct 1899 in Shalott, Kilmacolm, Scotland. Adam and Isabella were also first cousins. They shared the grandparents of John AITKEN and Isabella SCOTLAND.
