Hi 

I am new to this forum. I have traced my grandmother's family back to Charles Connell, the ship-builder. I have details on Charles' son Alexander (Sandy) his son Alexander and his sons & daughters if you are interested

My wife is descended from Grabowskys,Therese Grabowsky was married to Arthur Connell who owned the Connell Scotstoun shipbuilding yard in Glasgow.We have a tree on Ancestry.co.uk.

I am interested in any descendants of Charles Connell born approx. 1872 in Ayrshire, Scotland. He went on to become a prominent shipbuilder//

I realise this is a very old thread and those posting originally may not still be around but anyhow, Jeff, if you are, could you kindly check if your details include a Jane Connell, daughter of an Alexander Connell, so believed to be Alexander Connell and his first wife Ann Sheppard (various spellings)? If yes, do you have her marrying a James Lilley and their having a son Albert? Just hoping to cross reference my research and establish that the Jane who married James was indeed the one born to Alexander and Ann (marriage and birth certs checked thus far seem to indicate this).
