The Stewart Family and the Grennan Hannays

The following material was an appendix in editions 1-3 of The Hannays of Sorbie. In the process of editing the new 4th Edition (release date to be announced), this section was removed from the upcoming book. As we still wish to maintain the source material for research purposes, however, we are posting it here.

In the 16th Century, the Hannays of Grennan married into the family of
Alexander Stewart, the 3rd Laird of Garlies and Dalswinton

            Appendix A: Parish Lists, 1684

To illustrate the variations in the spelling of the family name in Galloway in the 17th century, here follows an extract from parish records. It also gives an example of the effect of the religious enforcement laws upon the populace. Each parish minister was required to produce a list like the following.  It showed all persons over twelve years of age so the magistrates could administer the Test. These lists were required as of October 15, 1684.
