  of 406

MY NAME IS EDWARD GIBB,AND I STAY IN ARDROSSAN AYRSHIRE,SCOTLAND.
MY FATHER/GRANDFATHER WERE BOTH CALLED JAMES GIBB,MY FATHER WAS BORN IN 1938 IN KILWINNING ,AND MY GRANFATHER WAS BORN IN SALTCOATS IN 1916,HIS FATHER,MY GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS CALLED DAVID GIBB ANDI THINK RESIDED IN DALRY AYRSHIRE,UNTIL THE FAMILY MOVED TO SALCOATS,DAVID WAS MARRIED TO MARGARET KERR,I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE FIRST NAME BEING CORRECT,I.E.POSSIBLY NOT MARGARET.DAVID AND MARGARET HAD A LARGE FAMILY,THE NAMES OF THOSE THAT I KNOW OFF ARE DAVID,JAMES,HUGHIE,ALEX,MATILDA,GRETA.
THEIR DESCENDENTS HAVE A LARGE PRESENCE IN WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE THREE TOWNS,ARDROSSAN,SALTCOATS AND STEVENSTON,AND IN DAYS GONE BY A LARGE SECTION OF THIS AREA CAME UNDER THE PARISH OF ARDROSSAN,IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN MY FAMILY AND YOURS,OR IF THERE IS ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE ME IN TRACING MY ROOTS I WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO HEAR FROM YOU.
