About me

William John MacMillan

My name is John MacMillan and I have been researching my family history for many years. I live in Leyland, Lancashire, England, which is approximately 120 miles south from the scottish borders from where my paternal ancestors came from.

My direct ancestors moved down from Scotland and into England during the early 1900s and I would welcome any information about the MacMillans and associated families from the Dumfriesshire and Kirkcudbrightshire areas of Scotland. Any information given will be credited to the contributor.

My mother and my maternal ancestors came from Cornwall, mainly from the Belowda, Roche, St Austell areas.

Over this time I have gathered quite a lot of information which I am happy to share with fellow MacMillans and researchers.
