Referred to in the 84 page summary of the McSparrons written in 1968. Is there a designated head guru for the clan and, if so, does he receive email. I am interested in how the McSparrons from Aughlish townland, Banagher Parish, County Derry, relate to the Scottish/English branch. There are quite a few grave markers in the Church of Ireland Graveyard near Feeny, NI that bear the name McSparron, inlcuding my great grandmother who died early in 1878. Please advise

Comments: In response to the message below Despite the countless companies that will provide you with such, there is no such thing as a "Family Coat of Arms". Armorial Bearings, which is the correct name for a Coat of Arms, are the personal property of one person only. The display of Arms which are not registered to you, or that you do not have a right to, can lead to prosecution in countries where heraldry is regulated. In Scotland, the use of Armorial Bearings is governed by the Laws of Arms Acts of 1587, 1592, 1662, 1663, 1672 and 1867 which establishes the Court of the Lord Lyon and sets out Lord Lyon's authority. He both grants arms and decides on questions of succession. For details by country, see Scotland Ireland England United States

Comments: I have, for several years, sought a correct depiction of the MacSporran coat of arms. There are many offers on the Internet, in stores and at fairs to draw or paint a coat of arms, but often they seem to be fakes. On your website I found the following: "A coat of arms, though now faded, exists in Dungiven Priory in northern Ireland. It depicts a sheaf of wheat and reaping hook surmounted by a dove with an olive spray. At the left is a lion rampant, at the right an eagle with opening wings. The motto on a partially unrolled scroll is "Pro Patria" with four Scottish thistles." I have little knowledge of heraldry (if that's the correct word) and cannot interpret this into an image. Has anyone in the Clan Association, to your knowledge, drawn or ordered a coat of arms? If so, wouldn't it be great to put it on the website so we can all see what it looks like? I wouldn't mind paying for a printed copy of it, if necessary. I just want the correct one and I believe the description above is the correct one. What do you think? J. Cliff McSparran Austin, Texas, U.S.A.

Comments: My McSparron family is known back to my gr x 4 grandfather, John "Jack" McSparron, a farmer, of Feeny, Northern Ireland. My gr x 3 grandfather was known in Australia as George McSparran. The spelling was probably changed by a clerk at some time. George was one of nine children and was born 5 June 1828. Many of his siblings went to the USA and Canada. Others stayed in Northern Ireland or came to Australia. Any connections would be welcome!!

Its a fine stone, just as it appears in the 19th c Government antiquarian book on stones in Iona. 5ft tall, a line of discs down the centre with a snake coiled top to bottem, it has a chip out of the top right corner. Last time I was on Iona I left a note with details of the stones behind it. Duncan McSporran

Comments My grandfathers father emigrated to america during the first quarter of the 20th century, and found work in america. My grandfather's father payed for each of his children (eldest first and so on consecutively) to travel to the u.s one by one, as he earned enough money to do so. My grandfather, Thomas, and his late sister June, were left behind in glasgow sometime in the 1920's, whilst all their other siblings had gone. In 1950, Thomas McSparran, his wife margret, and son Thomas (my father), moved to Rednal, Birmingham, where they had a daughter (Evelyn). I'd like to help try to find some of the descendant "McSparran"s in the u.s.a if they can be found! I'm very intersted in the history too, i think your website is fantastic.

Comments: I am the 4th great-grandniece of Elizabeth Arnott McSporran, wife of Malcolm McSporran, b. 22 February 1812 in Campbelton, d. 23 May 1876 in Campbelton. I have wondered for years what ever became of Elizabeth's children, grandchildren, etc. I have been researching my genealogy for 8 years, and I've just scratched the surface. I do know that Elizabeth and Malcolm had six children: Ann, Duncan, James, Donald, Robert and Malcolm Jr. I have a copy of a picture of the memorial stone which stands somewhere in Kintyre Scotland. Any information you have on this particular family would be most appreciated for my Arnott Family Genealogy. If there is a fee associated with this information, please let me know and I will send it immediately. I wish I had some research to offer you in return.

Comments: A few things I forgot. William Joseph McSparrin was born March 6, 1896 and raised in Ireland coming to America as a young man with his brother James. They resided in the Philadelphia/Camden area. Both married. William married a woman named Helen (do not know last name). They had at least one child, my grandmother Theresa. I have not spoken to her in about twenty years since I was a child so I have no help from her or any other information. I know he is buried in New Jersey dying there in 1967. His parents were William McSparrin Sr. and Elizabeth Catharine Carragher. I really want to know where in Ireland they came from and how I can put together a family tree. Thanks to anyone with information!

Comments: This website is interesting and I was able to find my great-grandfather William McSparrin, but I'm at a loss of what to do now. I know the birth date is correct as well as the date of death;however, all other methods of search come up short. He was my father's grandfather and unfortunately died six years before I was born. The entry says he was born in Scotland, my dad says all he knows is that his grandfather was IRISH and had a brother James. Is this familiar to anyone?

Comments: I am the son of Jean Elizabeth McSparran, originally of Hensel, Drumore Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, daughter of John Walter McSparran and Carrie Boyd. J.W. was the son of James M. McSparran of Drumore. Archibald settled in what is now Drumore Township, just a few miles from the store of J. W. McSparran, and the farm still stands. We are related to Archibald, but I'm not certain of the exact relationship.

While we were there, we looked everywhere for our name and tartan - I'm sure others have found the similar experience very frustrating. ;-) On a more personal note, I just lost my father to cancer a few months ago, so it was comforting to see this family connection.

My grandpa sent off to the National Archives and received some papers about Phillip McSparen (with that spelling) who was in the Mexican American war. He was born in the 1830's and died in 1905. I'm not sure how we are related to him, but I do have quite a bit of info about him.

Comments: Just surfed in to the site. Congratulations on a great site. My step father was originally from Campbeltown, his first name was John and he served in the Greys and was stationed in Germany just after the second world war. He moved to Blantyre Lanarkshire when he married my mother Ruby Marshall. I was originally named Whelan but my mother divorced my father and married John MacSporran when I was five years old. I am proud to take his name as he was the greatest Dad and friend anyone could wish for. He died suddenly in 1974 of a heart attack and was greatly missed. I have three brothers and two sisters mostly living in the Blantyre area of Lanarkshire and all proud MacSporrans. I myself am a Baptist Pastor here in Fife. I am married and have three children . . . Rebecca, John and Fiona.

Mildred, you didn't leave an Email address; I can't help with any news on Kate, but if she really did emigrate in 1850-55, she wouldn't have been old enough to travel alone, perhaps finding who she went with may help to trace her. By coincidence, I have a daughter called Kate McSparron.

Unfortunately Donald, whom my father mentioned, died on the 18th August, 1999 at age 91. He had a bad fall and broke his hip, he was admitted to hospital and operated on, seemed to be recovering well over the weekend but slipped into a coma on the Monday from which he never woke. We were at his bedside when he passed away peacefully at about 12:30pm on the Wednesday. He would often relate stories of his earlier years but I think I learnt more about what an extraordinary man he was from the eulogy at his funeral. I hope to learn more from his diaries, although I understand that they are more like schedule/note-books than diaries proper and his hand writing has always been notorious for it's illegibility.

I am a life member of the Clan, but this is the first time I have picked up this page on the web. My curiosity in Gigha arises as my father (now 91) reminisces about his father who he believes may have been the son of a Montgomery(?) of Gigha.

Comments: I am at the moment trying to find out what my grandfather McSparren' first name was. When I find that out maybe I can go further in researching on you web page. He would have been born in the mid-1800's. His son, my grandfather was Harry T. McSparren.

Comments: I have surfed the Clan pages many times but this is the first time I have signed the Vistors Book. I think it would be a good idea if the Clan News Sheet could be put on the Clan Website and maybe try and put a list of Email address of all Clan Members.

Comments: Visited site during geneological research. Found the list very useful in identifying some links. A town of birth against a name would be even more helpful. My family were orginally from Campbeltown, I've identified 156 so far, going back to 1777. Contact me if anyone needs help with links.

Comments: What a surprise - I congratulate you on an excellent web page. My father has a pretty comprahensive family tree of the MC Sparrons in the portglenone area going back 200 yrs. With a bit of persuasion he would probably upload it to youse. I notice that there is a tradition in my family of the two Mc Sparron/an/Sporran brothers coming to Ireland but it is placed at the end of the 18th century not the begining of the 17th.

Comments: Seasons Greetings from the Antipodes to all Clan members I wonder how many members of the Association who are on the 'Net would rather have their Newsletters Emailed to them rather than posted? I for one would be delighted to have it delivered weeks earlier than snailmail if it could be arranged. Anyway, I have made the suggestion to Secretary Ann Purcell in a recent letter, so will see if there is enough support to make it happen. It could save significantly on postage too because John tells me there are a good number of overseas members on the Internet now. Let's know what you think. Regards Keith
