Hello. My grandmother's surname was McEwen, from St Andrews Grenada. I live in England. I'd appreciate any info that might show if she was connected to David McEwen. Her father's name was Adam McEwen.

Re David McEWEN

I am 72 years of age and live in INNISFAIL, North Queensland, AUSTRALIA, and am 6 generations down the line from his first partner Sarah HALL and his first born James.

David had at least four partners and at least 12 children - possibly as many as 16. Our line continues when James' first son Thomas became a seaman and sailed to and then settled in AUSTRALIA.

David owned St Cyr estate in St Andrews district in 1797, I know that the estate was purchased by the Government in 1915 and split up into small acreage and sold to the workers.

I will advise the names of all the other children at a later date. My wife and I will be in GRENADA for four days 12-16 October just to see where my ancestor came from.
