GALLOWAY: From the district of the name. Persons bearing
this name are early found in other parts of Scotland, a family of the
name settled in Dumbartonshire early in the sixteenth century,
and others of the name appear early on the East Coast.

Thomas de Galwethia, earl of Atholl, made a gift of lands to the
Abbey of Neubotle c. 1230 and
Michael de Galewath(ia) was a witness about the same time.

John Galway was master of a ship belonging to Sir John of
Mountgomery in 1405.

Gilbert of Galoway was 'familiar' of the abbot of Couper, 1475 and
Jhone of Galloway, tenant of part of Kethik 1495

Sande Galowey was guilty of twllye (disturbance) in Lanark 1488
and
Henry Galloway fillius quondam William Galloway of West Weems
(or West Mains) is mentioned in 1541.

Pattoun Gallowey had a tack of two acres in Carsegrange, 1550

John Galloway in Kilmaronok was sued for contempt and
deforcement 1597 and another
Galloway, also in Kilmaronock followed the Macfarlanes in their
deadly feud with the Buchanans 1619.

Caution was found for Robert Galloway in Tullibodie, 1594
Neill Gallouay in Wodstoune was a retainer of the earl of Cassills
in Carrick 1635.

William Galloway, shoemaker, was admitted burgess of Aberdeen,
1606 and
Andro Galloway was burgess of Pittinweme 1654
Galloay 1506, Gallway 1497, Gallowaye 1485


and then there is the landed gentry, as below, and highly unlikely
to be connected to those of us who have Kent ancestry going back
before 1900. A branch set up home in Sussex around the time of
the first world war and therefore need not be taken into account,
even if only for that reason.

DNA TESTING
DNA TESTING
Requirements are that the tester is a male with the Galloway name as can
only be usefully done on a direct father to son line.

The DNA of my brother has been tested with the hope that one day we may
have a match with someone, a new cousin, which may enable us to search
further back with the Galloway name or at least add another branch to the
Galloway family tree. There are links below which will take you to the
laboratory testing site that we used and others that you might want to look
at to find out more about it, should you be interested. It can also be
helpful in proving relationships if there is any doubt. There are other
Galloway groups in Kent and Sussex and it looks as if the only way to find if
there is a connection would be through DNA testing.

The results of the test for my brother are below and are awaiting
comparison with another tester. If you do not know anything about DNA
testing this will not mean anything, but clicking on the links could help
explain matters.
