One reply on “Elizabeth Elder, 1811”

I am researching the family of Elizabeth ELDER who married John OWENS IN 1811 at the Parish Church in Ballymoney, Antrim Ireland. They had at least one daughter Mary OWENS who married Alexander CAMPBELL. They had seven children who eventually all ended up in New Zealand. Alexander Campbell died in Helensburgh near Loch Lomond. He was teaching in the Free Church School from 1841 to 1868/9 when he died. Then his wife Mary (nee Owens) and daughters Mary (my grandmother) and her sister Margaret (my step grandmother) emigrated to New Zealand. Brothers Hugh Campbell, John Campbell, James Palmer Campbell had already emigrated between 1862 and 1868. There were possibly two other daughters Sarah T and Isabella. Mary married Thomas Peacock – one time mayor of Auckland, New Zealand (his second marriage – his first wife Jessie Coghill had died) and they had four children, James (my grandfather), John, Mary and Margaret (who stayed spinsters). James married a Marion Brenda KELSHER and they had children Thomas Peacock, Gwendoline (my mother) and Geoff Peacock. Mary died and then Thomas Peacock married her sister Margaret Campbell (probably no issue). I would like to know if Elizabeth Elder and John Owens had any more children other than Mary (possibly a Peggy?). I would like also to know who the parents of Elizabeth Elder were. I suspect she is descended from John Elder. Also if anyone can help me about John Owens – at one time he worked in Belfast (possibly a solicitor but don’t know) Many thanks for any help anyone can give.
