Please Note: Some information may not be confirmed


1) Alexander Hannay born 6 Jan 1780 Minnigaff married Jane Rae 7 Jan 1818 Dundee Scotland.
Alexander and Jane Rae were living in Kirkcudbright in 1882.
Alexander was recoreded as a Grain Miller in Dundee.
- Jane Hannay born 3 Mar 1816 Kirkcudbright.
- Catherine Hannay born 31 Jul 1818 Kirkcudbright.
- Janet Hannay born 13 Aug 1820 Kirkcudbright.
- Dr. Alexander Hannay born Feb 1822 Dundee married Mary Agnes Hawson 12 Jul 1848 Dundee.
Alexander Hannay was born in Kirkmabreck on Feb 27th 1882.
He, early in his life, showed his ability as an orator and a leader. Always interested in Politics he used to tell with glee that one of his earliest recolections was standing on a form and haranguing his playmates on the Reform Bill. He was in due time apprenticed to a printer and a publisher in Dumfries. However, he decided to become a Minister and entered Glasgow University and the Theological Hall of the Scottish Congregationalist where he remained from 1841 to 1846, martriculating in 1843.
In 1846 he accepted the charge of the Church at Princess Street, Dundee, where his fervour, energy, and eloquence made a notable mark on the City.
He moved to London in 1862 and took the Pastorate of the City Road Church. During this time, the strain on his voice proved too great for him. When looking at his portrait one can imagine this huge man booming forth his carefully thought out and eloquent sermons.
As a result of his trouble he moved in 1866 to West Croydon. In 1867 he was appointed the Seceratary of the Colonial Missionary Society, and he acquitted himself so well that on the death of Dr. George Smith in 1870 he succeeded as Seceratary of the Congregational Church of England and Wales.
He had of necessity to give up his pastorate in Croyden. His work for his body was magnificent and he guided his denomination through many troubled seas.
His greatest work was probably the foundation of Mansfield College at Oxford. The course of his work took him to America, Canada, and Australia and in 1880 he was made a Doctor of Divinity at Yale University. He died on November 12, 1890. During his rein was built Memorial Hall, the building which houses the present headquarters of the Congregational Union in Farrington Street, London, where the First Edition was published and where his portrait now hangs.
"here was a powerful, elequent man who had great organizing ability, and a gift of advancing"
