ancestor: Eleanor COURTENAY who married James ANDERSON
comments: Eleanor COURTENAY was the wife of James ANDERSON. Their daughter Jane/Janet ANDERSON married William McEWEN/McKEOWN at Sixmilecross, Tyrone, Ireland in 1857. By 1861 William and Jane McEwen were living in Ayrshire, Scotland, where they had 7 children. Their 3rd child, James, was born and baptised at Sixmilecross in 1866.
Jane McEwen nee Anderson died in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1899, and her parents are listed on her death certificate as James Anderson and Eleanor Courtenay. Her death was registered by her husband, William McEwen, and that both her parents were both deceased at the time of her death.
Does anyone know anything about Eleanor Courtenay?
