The Grant family search - Discover Saintfield

Tom Grant, who is hoping to contact relatives in Saintfield, has added the information that his ancestor was Samuel Grant, who owned Ballyknockan flax mill. He had seven children, three of whom, Robert, Samuel and Thomas, went to Canada. He believes the others stayed around Saintfield and would like to make contact with their descendants.
