What do you know of Samuel & his family ? My ancestor is Archibald Cairns born in the early 1800's & had 5 children in the Saintfield area then more in Newtownards.

There was a book written about 1900 on the Cairns in N. Ireland that took the line back to the 1300's in Scotland. Unfortunately the author didn't spend too much time detailing the existing Cairns branches.

The following is from the Emerald Ancestors site.

Record Type Civil Birth Date of Birth 2 Aug 1870 Name Ellen Jane CAIRNS Gender F Fathers Name Samuel CAIRNS Mothers Maiden Name Ellee Jane KENNEDY Civil District Downpatrick Sub District Killyleagh County Down

Record Type Civil Birth Date of Birth 14 Sep 1872 Name Eliza CAIRNS Gender F Fathers Name Samuel CAIRNS Mothers Maiden Name Ellen Jane KENNEDY Civil District Downpatrick Sub District Killyleagh County Down

Cheers, John
