I am looking for information on my family in County Down. My grandfather Robert Hewitt was born in Saintfield in 1846. The names Samuel, Hugh, John and William show up but I don't have any real connection. I would like to pursue any possible connections. Robert married Agnes Mc Kee in Saintfield, April 1879. They later went to Canada. Inserted 9 July 2001. William W Hewitt
