MISC

From: Source:Harrison, 1992 speaking of the Ewing family in Scotland, but including digressions to the Ewings of Londonderry, some of whom settled in Old Chester.

An unforseen bonus...has been the revelation of such an intense family web, covering a wide social range; each cross link in our web, even when it is not of direct genealogical relevance, shows us how an extensive 17th century family worked. It is the family which emerges, rather than a single individual.
