Whilst tracing my own Gowans family who originated in Perth, I kept tripping over various others Gowans’ and in an effort to keep them all straight ~ and to discover if any were related to me ~ I ended up tracking several families who all came from, or at some point lived in, Perth. One of these, at least, did end up being related but not, ironically, because they were Gowans’ but because they married into one of the related families!
To differentiate between the families, they are listed under the name of the wife of the first person in the tree:
Gowans ~ Young (from Kinross)
Gowans ~ Craw (from Aucherarder)
Gowans ~ Adam (from Errol)
Gowans ~ Miller (from Perth)
