Comments:
James Allan may be my great grandfather.
My grandmother Katherine Allan lived at the castle at the turn of the century and immigrated to Canada when she was 18. Mrs Cleverley may be her sister. Sadly, my grandmother passed away many years ago. I would appreciate obtaining some information related to James Allan.

James Allan was my Grandfather and his Daughter Katherine was my Aunt. My Father, Edward Allan, was Katherine's youngest brother and Mrs Cleverley was also my Aunt, her maiden name was Jane Elizabeth Allan the youngest daughter. So I think I may be related to you
