The Niven family history is shown below in charts contributed by Gordon Niven who has researched his ancestors and generously given permission for his work to be displayed here. Click on each diagram to view it. The first chart on the left below starts with William Niven whose son John was the father of William Niven born 1762 who was the noted Bailie of Maybole. Appendix's 2, 3, 4 and 5 are further expansions of the first chart. There are many Niven's with connections to Maybole in the charts below while others are associated with places found in Ayrshire and beyond. Read further details of Gordon Niven's research here.
