Descendants of John Grier and Janet McMonies
Including families of Birkett-Vipont, Broadfoot, Cockerell, Craig, Edwards, Emery,
Graham, Grier, Horne, Jones, Smith, Thomas, Vipont, White etc.
Knowledge of our family indicates that their
geographical position in the eighteenth century was
centred on Kircudbrightshire and Dumfriesshire, otherwise
known as Galloway, in Scotland, and specifically around
the area of Parton, a small village several miles north
of Castle Douglas. The family tree described in these
pages commences in 1714, though with an area of
uncertainty until the marriage of John Grier and Janet
McMonnies in 1757.
