very pleased to hear about your Blue? of Kilmarnock related to Ardrossan
Re: BLUE. My gt-grandmother Margaret GOODWIN was born 17- 11-
Her parents were Francis GOODWIN and Margaret HOOKS (formerly BLUE)
They were married in Irvine on 10 - 2 - 1853. Margaret HOOKS
(formerly BLUE) - her parents may have been Edward and Janet. At this
time I have no idea why her name was changed from BLUE to HOOKS. Possibly
she was married before or her mother was. Margaret BLUE/HOOKS had 2
children that I know of Margaret and John. She died 9 - 4 - 1885. At 1
Clyde View Ardrossan, from congestion of the lungs.
Any information on HOOKS or BLUE would be appreciated.
Thanks for all the replies on BLUE so far.
