In Reply to: NEW ZEALAND MOUNTCASTLES by Paul Mountcastle of 88

Hi there Paul.

I have just read your posting regarding the New Zealand Mountcastles. I am a Mountcastle descendant on my motherís side, her maiden name was Mountcastle. I still have some cousins with the surname.

There may be a small number in the UK but they are the originals!

I have a number of Mountcastle family history trees going back to the mid 1500ís for the UK. I seem to recollect having come across some information about branches that emigrated to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. I do not have the records to hand at the moment as I have lent them to a family member.

The major missing link is the family member(s) that emigrated to America. They may not even be on the trees that I have. Apologies to the American cousins I cannot help you.

Could your Christopher A Mountcastle be one of these on the following link?

I will try and get my records back and see if I can find any further information to pass onto you.

My email address is dj-miles@live.co.uk.

David
