Meiklejohns in Canada

Gregg Meiklejohn - Victoria


Gregg lives in Victoria, British Columbia. His dad was William Murray Meiklejohn, born in Vancouver in 1936 and passed away in 1989. His grandfather, Murray Alexander Meiklejohn, emigrated to Canada in the 1920s and married into the Muir family. He passed away after being hit by a trolley car in 1941. His great grandfather was an international gymnast around the time of the first world war, and his great uncle was that most famous of Meiklejohns, David Meiklejohn , who played for Glasgow Rangers and Scotland at football.

Gregg and Mona have three daughters: Michelle, Amanda and Erin. Erin was born on the 29th of May, 2003.


Gillian McIntyre Gaiser

Gillian has been researching her family and has written a book around it, which includes some Meiklejohn information. Here's her message:

I am a second cousin to Martha through marriage. My first husband, Ian Angus McIntyre, who died in 1991, was Martha's second cousin. Ian descended from the marriage of Jessie Meiklejohn of Uddingston, Lanarkshire and John Robertson of Glasgow. Ian's grandfather, William Meiklejohn Robertson, born 1888 in Alexandria, Dunbartonshire was the 7th child of John and Jessie. He was killed in the First World War.

I have traced Jessie Meiklejohn's line back to Walter Meiklejohn thought to have been born about 1675 in Barony, Glasgow. I have just published a book about my husband's ancestors including the Robertsons and Meiklejohns. It is called "The McIntyre Files" and I am just in the process of building a website with information about the book.

I have a photo of Jessie and also one of her with her whole family if it is of interest to anyone.
