The Perth connection - or not?

A lot of the recent changes between the 6th and today are tidy-ups of the remnants of the background changes to make the assorted sites easier to maintain and link.
Exceptions are the inclusion of George, the Perth connection sometimes suggested for Thomas of Innerwick, and of his wife Alison GRIEVE with an alternate set of parents to those sometimes suggested.
Also a WHITECROSS tree highlighting the assorted RUNCIMAN connections along with how the assorted WHITECROSSes are related.

Runcimans Where?

Those listed on the Recent Changes for 6th May are all newly included on the One Name Study pages but not new lineages.
Decided it was time to get a few more pins on the map!
As the introduction for the lineage location page states this map is distinct from the map(s) in the Analysis section in that it involves individuals as opposed to summary place/surname data.
Both place pages have been added to the sidebar menu for easier access.

The former shows only birth (green) and death (red) information for those included on the site where these places have been geo-coded - a growing number, but a lot yet to come.

Zoom in for finer details and click on the balloon to see who is associated with each place shown.

Where births and deaths occur at the same place you may have to zoom to the closest level possible to see both coloured balloons.

Suggestions for people (no longer living) to include to show the dispersion of the RUNCIMAN surname across the globe are welcome, e.g. the first of a branch to reach a new country/county/state.

RUNCHMAN for a change

The Edward RUNCHMAN on today's Recent Change index is the taster for a tree beginning to be included on the One Name Study pages. Interesting set of surname variants, earliest forbear so far is a John RUNSHIMAN from Cornill in Northumberland.  Descendants named variously RUNSIMAN, RUNCEMAN before settling on RUNCHMAN down to close to present day.  
Edward settled, with his mother Cherry CAMBPELL, in New Brunswick (which is how William of the VALLANCE line was also found)

And now New Brunswick

The family of George and Agnes (VALLANCE) RUNCIMAN, some of whom ended up in Annapolis, has been updated to include a newfound branch in New Brunswick, that of William & Jeanie (MacAULAY) RUNCIMAN. Perhaps this branch may have some living RUNCIMAN  descendants interested in helping document their family history?
This tree has been included on WeRelate for anyone interested in sharing information, and links added to/from their One Name Study pages.


The recent changes entries on the One Name Study pages for the Inchture family of John & Susan (DONALDSON) RUNCIMAN's family are to include links to (and from) their entries on WeRelate rather than any particularly new information.
As the prior post on WeRelate states, it is a genealogy wiki where you can share your finds. Any pages you update will be added to your "watchlist" and subsequent updates notified to you.
