|Thomas Cranstone of Ewshot
I have spent several years researching Cranston and Cranstone in Ewshot and nearby Crondall, as well as Farnham in Surrey. I cannot take the ancestry of the Thomas who was married to Jane Young in 1758 back any further, but I do have (along with other researchers) considerable information about his descendants.
I am decended from another Cranstone line in Crondall, Samuel Cranstone who married Martha Cooper on 17 Apr 1720.
If the previous requester would like to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) I would be happy to share information.

|SCOTLAND: CRANSTON---SCOTT--Lord & Lady
Lord Cranston(Changed spelling once in US) married Elizabeth Scott in
Scotland 1616. She was the dau, of Lord Scott of Buccleuch, her brother
Walter became the first Earl of Buccleuch, and her first cousin became
the first Dutchness of Buccleuch. I'm a descendant of the Duke of
Buccleuch. And when my lineage came to American we took the Clan name
of Buccleuch, but updated it(more American) to Buckelew and dropped our
original surname of Scott.
Today the Duke of Buccleuch lives in Bowhill Castle. The richest family
in Scotland and largest landowner in the UK. You can go on line and

SEARCHING FOR MORE ON INFORAMTION ON WILLIAM CRANSTON AND MARY MATHESON�S >> TMIE PERIOD LATE 1700's and early 1800's
A hand sewn leather case has been handed down through my mothers line that contains a series of birth and death records that "Cranston" researchers may be interested in. I would be interested in hearing from anyone having connections to this line or who could tell me how this line fits into the "Cranston " family tree. My e-mail address is email@example.com.
Mary Matheson from Hobkirk, Roxburgh, Scotland who I suspect is a daughter of Andrew Matheson or her husband William Cranston wrote the first two pages. It reads:
"William Cranston and Mary Matheson was Married the year of our lord April 14 1772.
My first daughter was born February the 16 1773 called Betty.
My second daughter was born March 15th 1775 called Jainey.
My first son was born January first 1777 called William.
My second son was born July 31st called Andrew.
My third daughter was born November 20 1781 called Bella.
My fourth daughter was born September the 29th 1785 called Mary.
My fifth daughter was born June 11 1788 called Marg(aret).
My sixth daughter was born September 6 1793 called Nancy"
The second son Andrew Cranston wrote the third page and half the fourth page.
"????? ( Jane) Cranston my sister died April 15 in the year of our lord 1815.
William Cranston my father died March 18 in the year of our lord 1817
Isabella Brown my wife died March 11th in the year of our lord 1829.
Mary Matheson my mother died 16 of March in the year of our lord 1835
Andrew Flowers (spelled Flours) died 4th of April the year of our lord 1836.
William Flowers (spelled Flours) died the 22 of April in the year of our lord 1849.
Thomas Flowers (spelled Flours) died the 3 of May in the year of our lord 1849."
I don�t know who Andrew, William or Thomas Flowers are. However, Andrew Cranston and Isabella Brown�s daughter Isabel Janet Cranston married John Flowers in Earlston, Berwick Scotland on June 15 1827 and subsequently immigrated to
Westminster Township, Middlesex County, Ontario, Canada in 1863.
The last two entries on the forth page are by Isabel Janet Cranston and they read:
" Andrew Cranston died 28 February in the year of our lord 1869.
John Flowers died 23 Feb 1868."
I believe the "John Flowers" she was referring to here, was her father in law, as her husbands gravestone inscription indicates he died Feb 15 1867.
William Cranston and Mary Mathesons family were from Hobkirk.
I am not sure but I think Andrew Cranston and Isabelle Brown were also from Hobkirk .
John Flowers and Isabel Janet Cranston were from Earlston.
I was in contact with a lady from Nova Scotia Canada who is a descendent of Andrew Cranston's older brother William. He married a Bridget Brown but we do not know if she is a relation of Isabella Brown's or not. William Cranston immigrated to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada in 1814 in the company of a detachment of Royal Artillery.
I don�t know if Andrew Cranston and Isabella Brown had other children besides Isabel Janet

DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS FAMILY?
ALICE would like to hear from you.....
"I just found out yesterday
that Mary Ann Cranston married James McClean at the Registrar's Office,
Dublin City on July 31,1861. The register lists Mary Ann's father as
Edward, not William as we thought, a deceased farmer. I hope this brings
some results. Alice
