Hi: I am Janice, George and Betty Cannon's daughter (Sara's grandaughter). I lived for a time at the house you speak of (8 Hayocks Road). I also remember Milda (Black) and her uncle's store in Saltcoats where Betty worked. How are you Milda? Aunt Sheila is the only one still alive I think.

Hi Janice I am James & Betty Cannons daughter, I am about to do a bit of family history so if you have any info I would love to have it. Was trying to find out why my father was brought up by the grandparents. Where are you living now are you still in Canada? My mother is still alive and can give me little snippets of my fathers life but well I am still trying to hone in on the Irish side of things. I understand the great grandparents came from Bray in Ireland.

If they are the same cannons who played bowls at ardeer bowling club about 20 or so years ago, I played in the mixed pairs with Betty, and also knew george well and played in a few games with him.
Such a lovely couple.

I am John's son Jack, I've been away from Ayrshire for over 30 years, and only just saw this.

My Grandfather was Thomas Cannon from Bray, and you can find him in the Ireland 1901 and 1911 census (free to look up)

I'm assuming Elizabeth is my Cousin who moved to New Zealand when I was just a kid?
