Introduction

These are my ancestral pages for my McKenzie family and all my ancestral lines.
The Clan MacKenzie was originally from Ross and Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands but I have not yet found my connection back there yet, currently only to Bowden and Lilliesleaf, both in Roxburghshire and Edinburgh. The photograph is the ancestral home of the Chiefs of the Clan Mackenzie. My grandparents form the basis of this study and are the McKENZIE, DICKINSON, FREEMAN and YOUNGER families. The McKenzie's that I have currently traced are from the Borders of Scotland starting in Bowden, Roxburghshire in 1808 [read the story of the Border McKenzies] and to Edinburgh in 1830 and all else from around Gateshead in County Durham; it has also lead to Cumberland where my LOSH ancestors from marriage in 1830 emanate; and ELLIOTT's from Gateshead and Newcastle; the YOUNGER's coalminers from across the river Tyne around Chirton and North Shields in Northumberland; the DICKINSON's from London and Middlesex; the HILDERSLEY's from London who were wood carvers, chair and cabinet makers; and the FREEMAN's from Warwickshire, Kent and to Middlesex and London. For the Hildersleys it is the start of a one name study.
I was born in London and have been interested in genealogy since my mother died in September 1998, I knew much about her family but I knew so little about my father's family as I never knew my paternal grandparents, his mother died when he was 9 and father when he was 14. I have newfound his ancestors for 9 generations and more. Now that is all changing and their story is unfolding.

The database currently has over 2,442 individuals and is constantly growing. The journal section is now as up to date as are the Descendent Drop charts for some of the main families. Occasionally I just update the Charts with the latest research.

There are separate sections for the main families as well with drop charts, photos, other name variants and named but as yet unconnected individuals.

If you have, or think you may have, any connections to any of my ancestors and their descendents please e-mail me.

I would specifically like to thank those distant cousins - Geoff Losh, Christopher Freeman, Audrey Adams, Sue Light, Anthony Mackenzie Mills, Dolly Harrison, John Lee, amongst many others - that I have found through my genealogy research on the internet for the help that they have provided and for sharing their research or knowledge of their branches.

Naming Patterns often followed in Scotland


1. First son: father's father
2. Second son: mother's father
3. Third son: father
4. Fourth son: father's oldest brother
5. Fifth son: father's second oldest brother or mother's oldest brother
6. First daughter: mother's mother.
7. Second daughter: father's mother.
8. Third daughter: mother
9. Fourth daughter: mother's oldest sister
10. Fifth daughter: mother's second oldest sister or father's oldest sister.

These links can be seen running through some of my ancestors, particularly the McKenzies'; although in some instances the first child of either sex had the first name of the father's father( or mother's mother) and then as a middle name the mother's father or mother. Occassionally a surname of the previous generation is used as a middle name. You may find the pattern useful.
