Have noticed research/family history of Cuyler/Glen surnames. Could Pat,
Alison or Maureen please advise if the GLEN surname originated in London or
Borders/Scotland UK ?
Would they also know if that particular branch of the GLEN clan/sept had
cousins/lineage which ended up in Australia, particularly NSW ? Many UK
people stayed a while in either NSW or STH Africa & returned for various
reasons, so it truly was a "small world".
Take care & TIA
