Descendants of Andrew Gawn, Halftown, Co. Antrim:
Born 1777


Home page

   Let me introduce myself.

   I am William Andrew Gawn of Halftown, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, living on the farm where one of my ancestors came over 200 years ago.

   He was Andrew Gawn, my Great-great-grandfather who first lived at Donegore, Co. Antrim, Ireland before he leased land in Halftown, Co. Antrim in 1801. He was one of a family of at least seven children, four boys and three girls. I start with him; but go backward and sideways to include other family lines which are closely connected.

   I have been researching my ancestry for many years and have amassed a lot of information, some factual and some anecdotal. These web pages contain that information and are there for others to use and add to as they see fit. I have tried to be as accurate as possible in the information that I give, but  at times there are variations in content between different sources and therefore there may be some unintentional errors for which I apologise.

   There are many gaps yet to fill where a person, or persons, seem to vanish, perhaps moved on to another country to live, or get married and the link is difficult to find. I would hope that some of those in this category will be prompted to come forward and fill the gaps and make this family history more complete.
