McCutcheon Name Study – Addition to Chapter two

Samuel McCutcheon 1756 Grey Abbey church yard

Picture of Samuel McCutcheon’s headstone was taken at the Grey Abbey Church Graveyard, County Down, Ireland in the summer of 2014 Debbie Powell. Debbie is the Great Great Grand-daughter of Isabella McCutcheon who was the daughter of Samuel Donald McCutcheon (1849-1929). Samuel Donald’s story begins as B: Chapter 11. This illustration clearly establishes the correct spelling of the name by the early 18th century.

  1. Dave McCutcheon says:


    Thought this might be one of our ancestors, but checked back on a report from to find a “Samuel McCutcheon of Cottown” Born 1825 , death Dec 22, 1825 in Greyabbey, Down Ireland. His Father is reported as Robert McCuistion, born 11 Sep 1723 in Londonderry, Ireland.

    Is there any connection in these two families? The first McCutcheon in our line to come to Canada was John McCutcheon, born about 1770 in Greyabbey. He settled with his sons in Erin Township Ontario about 1824. I’ve been able to track back to this man based on records in the Wellington County Archives near Fergus, ON.
