McEuen Ancestry Paisley Scotland

This evening, I am posting a video clip of a very old tombstone located at the burying ground close to Paisley Abbey. This records the deaths of:

Daniel McEuen, Wright and Margaret Adie, spouse and children. The inscription is dated 1788 but it is not clear to which, if any, of the individual deceased persons it relates.

NB: The name of the male deceased could be either:

  • Daniel McEuen ( a wright or craftsman) or
  • Daniel McEuen Wright
Taking onto account the symmetry of the inscription and the fact it was common at that time to provide occupation of the deceased I have elected for the former.
