John McCann, County Down

Post by emmzinscotland »


I know i'm probably clutching at straws here but I'm trying to trace my ancestry from County Down. The information I have is that John McCann was born in County Down, Ireland around 1858/1859. I'm not sure when he moved to England, he married on the 13 November 1886 to a woman called Maria Palmer. They married in Mount Pleasant, Crook, Durham, District of Auckland. John died in 1913.

They had 9 children.

Mary McCann(1888–1938)
Charlotte McCann(1892–)
John Robert McCann(1894–1927)
William Henery McCann(1899–)
Phoebe McCann(1901–)
Florence McCann(1901–1989)
Samuel McCann(1904–1964) - My Great Grandfather
Minnie McCann(1906–)
Ann McCann(1890–1909)

My Great Grandfather moved to Aberdeen where he married Margaret Elizabeth Walker 31/10/1931.

If anyone can help or point me in the right direction of places to try I would greatly appreciate it.
