Ben McBeanDoes anyone know when/why we ended up with Bean, MacBean and McBean? I've traced my family back to 1760ish they are in England (10 miles from where I am now) and using McBean. Seems impossible to get any further back. Was hoping to get back to Culloden.

Just before Christmas we discovered some family trees in a trunk that was donated. The family trees date back to the 1600s and the main family lines mentioned are: - Dugald Stuart MacBeath - Catherine Fyfe - Margaret MacFarlane - Catherine Wallace - Robert Low Foreman - Alison and Catherine Gourlay - Agnes Farmer - Robert Johnstone - John Keddie Share this post and help us reunite these with the families! We will keep the family trees at our shop on Church Street in Inverness should any family member wish to claim them.

ATTN; All Clan Members--Look for 2 new Folders soon to be linked on the Clan MacBean web site! Unpublished Photo Gallery, and Anonymous Photo Gallery. These are all the pictures from the Clan Archives Collection, from the early-mid 1800s to the 1980s that have not been published in the trees. There are @400 so far and @1000 more will be in the first folder--I'm adding about 30/day-- and they are labelled with names and lineage #s. The Anonymous folder will be finished next and are all from the MacBean Clan so please help us identify them. I expect the links to be online within a week at clanmacbean.org. And, yes, you can download them! smile emoticon:))

Hello,
I have been working on my family tree for some time and my 6x great grandmother is Peniel Bean. I have been stuck on this ancestor for some time as I have been unable to find much information on her. I was referred here by someone as you are said to be the leaders of knowing everything BEAN. πŸ™‚
Peniel Bean was born around 1710 In New England, USA. I believe New Hampshire. She married Joseph Hall in 1731 and had 9 children: Ann, Mary, Joseph, Daniel, Abigail, Samuel, Hannah, John and Peniel all born in or areas imediatly around Dover, New Hampshire, USA. Would you happen to have ANY information on this woman?

Kind Regards

Clan MacBeanIf you are a member of Clan MacBean, our Clan Genealogist clanmacbean.org/ she can probably help you out. The plan is to be able to provide each member a CD of thier ancestry. We are pretty much up to speed on the John Bean of Exeter line, the original Bean family in America and are adding addition lines here and in the UK.

Justine BradfordEmma, I love easy ones--Peniel Bean, the gt. granddaughter of John of Exeter, was married to Joseph Hall and was the daughter of Daniel Bean/Ann Sanborn. The family line is on our web site in the John of Exeter Tree and can be accessed at will by Members of the Clan. just go to clanmacbean.org and if you like what you see, you can join right on line for a modest $25/yr. We have your Hall line 6 generations down from Peniel and Joseph. Email me at genealogist@clanmacbean.org and let me know. :))

I didnt take very many pictures since I had been there a couple times before.

It's that time of year - Happy Halloween! Just had three of my Scottish periodicals show up the same day, and don't you know, one (Scottish Banner)has two small articles on Sawney Bean. Sawney Bean and his cannibal family were supposed to, and I emphasize "supposed to" have preyed on travelers in southwest Scotland during a long period somewhere between the14th and 16th centuries. Even the two articles give different centuries. The general view is that Sawney and his family were fictitious characters, or at least highly exaggerated from what might have been minor criminals in previous centuries. There are no historical records that mention them and it is doubtful that the Kennedy family who were considered to be the "Kings of Carrick" at the time would have let such funny business go on in their territory. There are a lot of internet references to the story of Sawney and his cave's location near Balllantrae in Ayrshire and a lot of adaptations of the story exist. I was actually very close to the supposed location of the cave once, but the road was blocked. I was on the wrong road. There is a layby close to the main road that you can climb down to it from. ...
