One of my Islay connection is via my gr-grandfather Archibald CURRIE who was born there about 1840. He came to Canada in 1865, per the 1901 Ontario Census. In 1871 he married Flora GALBRAITH ( born in Ontario) in Oro Township, Simcoe County, ON. The marriage registration gives his parents names as James and Lizzie. Archie and Flora had 8 children including my grandmother Lizzie.
The only possible find for him in Scotland was this:

Islay people - McNeill, McDermid, Currie, McGilvray, Ferguson (2 branches who intermarried, just to make it more interesting, lol).
