Thank you for accepting me into your website.
I believe I am related back to Alexander Cree born 28.05.1699 in Methven. I also have links through Ancestry, not sure how accurate they are, back to a Robert Crie born 1618 possibly in Fife.
I shall attempt to post the direct lineage I have to Alexander in the coming days.
Thanks again and keep up the good work on an excellent website :-)

Posted by JUNE WALKER on October 21, 2020 at 16:30 2 Comments

My great grandfather James Cree was the son of Henry Cree. Edith Hannah Cree is my grandmother.

She was born in Worksop 1872 . Daughter of James Cree and Julia Marples.  Julia Marples was the daugher of George Marples who owned a public house in Worksop called "Butchers Arms".

James Cree owned  a vegetable and fishmongers shop in Worksop in about 1880. He died in 1896. 

If anybody has more information or photo`s I would love to hear from them.

Cree Family History

This Ning network has been created to allow all those with an interest in Cree family history to have a focal point where they can exchange their knowledge and ask questions of others with a similar interest in the origins of their own Cree family. It has been created to directly complement and work in parallel with the Cree Surname website ( that is maintained by Mike Spathaky, the leading Cree family history researcher. Mike, Trevor and others have been trying for some time to devise a means whereby individuals can communicate directly with each other about their common Cree ancestry and this Ning community provides a way to achieve that objective. Whether you live in Scotland, Ireland, England, the USA, Australia, New Zealand or indeed anywhere else in the world, we hope that you will find this resource of assistance to your research.
