3 Ardrossan Road should be the 2nd house on the right as you travel north towards Ardrossan; ie. beneath the rise of Caledonia Road - known locally as Caley Brae. St Mary's (aka "Star of the Sea") is, I KNOW, 10 Ardrossan Road.

In the following image, there is a tree to the left of the head of the man in the farthest away cart. Partially hidden by the tree, would be 3 Ardrossan Road.

My husband is the geneologist in the famly and discovered the connection to 3 Ardrossan Road days after we moved house to 24 Ardrossan Road, directly across the road..spooky or what? If anyone has photos of No3 I would be most greatful for a look/copy?

Much thanks,

Hello,

The family that lived at 3 Ardrossan Rd in Saltcoats were the McGuires. One of them married a Graham - Jean married Eddie Graham. John McGuire and mary Underwood McGuire were my great grandparents. One of their daughters married a Graham. (Bridget / Biddy) I knew the Grahams, Noreen, Theresa and maybe another brother or sister.

Hi Ward,

I knew Eddie and Jean Graham; I stayed at their house as a child sometimes. My mother, Elizabeth McGuire and Eddie were cousins and Eddie and Jean visited our house in Stevenston. I am doing the genealogy and I think I know where you fit. I think your dad passed away fairly young did he not?

Hi Ward,

Great to meet you )

I knew Helen - we called her auntie Ellen, she had long black hair and a wheezy chest, chronic asthma maybe. She brought us three girls little tartan purses to Stevenston where we lived when she visited from Belfast. She was referred to as my grandfather's (Bill McGuire, Townhead st then Ardoch crescent) 'youngest sister". Biddy was his sister. I think that although Biddy brought her up, she was born to Mary Ellen McGuire who died, so in a way, she was his sister as well as his niece.

I knew your uncle Eddie and stayed one summer with him and Jean - nice people. He was my mother's cousin, or Jean was, or maybe both.

3 Ardrossan Rd was the home of John McGuire and Mary Underwood, my great grandparents. There are at present at least three or four of us McGuire descendents doing that genealogy, and I think perhaps Eddie and Jean's daughters are on this site.

We have loads of information to share, as well as photos, and I can put you in touch with the others if you like. email me any time at xxxxxx@xxxxxx.xxx. I can send you photos of your ancestors right away.

It's a very small, but interesting world. :)

Without malice :)

Hi Meg,

That was actually my business email and was on the web everywhere, so I wasn't worried. I have now changed to another email adress, also business, so I don't mind anyone knowing it. Besides, my husband is ex military and visits the pistol range weekly. :)

My grandfather's family lived there as well, the McGuires. The Grahams were related. If you want to chat about it, let me know.
