Herdman Family Genealogy Forum
Refer to Charles Herdman's families who came from Antrim, Ireland, this is correct information, actually their families came from Ballyhill Lower Town, Killead, Antrim.
Before he sailed to Whitehaven with 2 other brothers James & Samuel (it's possible travelling together). Charles briefly stayed at Whitehaven, then moved to New Herrington, a part of Houghton le Spring, then Newburn and finally South Moor in part of Stanley, some families scattered to Annfield Plain, Beamish, Pelton, Winalton, Coventry & Craghead.
I would love to hear more details of your descendancy. I have some charts of James Herdman of Antrim to the present day, who are not related to mine, but I'm interest and curious that the first Herdman came to Ireland from Scotland :- Captain Herdman who fought for King William of Orange in the battle of Boyne in 1690 and granted land to him and further descendants spread around Ireland
