"ALWAY. John Aulway, a Scots prisoner of war, liberated from custody in the Tower of London in 1413, may be the John Alway, servitor of John Lyouns who received a safe conduct into England in 1417 (Bain, rv, 839, 878). The name is probably from the town of Alva (in 1489, Alway) in Stirlingshire. "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some Alway ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!
