WILLIAM NIVEN, one of the Scottish Covenantors, was imprisoned in Dunottar Castle, Scotland, in 1684, and subsequently transported to the plantations in America. He later returned to Scotland. His only known son, also named WILLIAM NIVEN, married a MARGARET SHIELES. I have traced some of my family history back to William Niven Senior, through his grandaughter JANET NIVEN(born 1713) who married a THOMAS GLEN in 1737. Other families descended through this line are - FINLAYSON, KERR and SHARP.
Are there any other descendants of William Niven the Covenantor out there? If so I would love to hear from you.
