Great job, Mike!  You've made quite a significant breakthrough.  Now I'll go back to all those saved SP searches and match everything.  Thanks!

Thanks Allan,

I had the same idea to darken the image when I found the note in the 90s - it is hard to read in its original form, but I thought people might enjoy seeing the original.

Paul,


How does this grab you?


The Jean (10) living with Duncan in the 1851 Census was a neice born in Glasgow.

A Jean was born to Gilbert McAulay & Jean McDermid in Glasgow on 1/4/1840.

Gilbert (a wright) & Jean were married in Glasgow on 7/9/1832 by the Gaelic Minister of the Gorbals (suggesting, to me, that they came from the Islands).

In the 1841 Census there is a family Gilbert a 40 year old wright, Jean at 30, Elizabeth 3 & Jean 1 living in Brownfields Parish. Elizabeth was born in Glasgow on 11/5/1836. As yet, cannot find the family in the 1851 Census.

In the 1851 Census I have an Angus McAulay, with a 13 year old neice Elizabeth, born in Glasgow, living with him.

So could these two neices be the children of Gilbert & Jean, each living with one of their Father's brothers????

I have Angus being born at Laggan, Islay around 1799 (based on age at death on 2/4/1888), although he was married in Kilchoman and his children were born in both Kilchoman & Portnahaven. Angus' known children were Gilbert, John, Duncan, Donald & Alexander.

Angus' parents were John McAulay & Ann Shaw.


What do you think??


Regards

Mike

Some years ago, I found this note in a family Bible. It was written in pencil on a small piece of lined paper by my great-grandmother Elizabeth (Lizzie Smiley) MacAulay, wife of Angus MacAulay, I suppose, for her grandchildren. It gives the names, ages and birthdays for her children, except for Rachel her only daughter who died in her late teens:

I tried all the names you gave with Duncan but got nil returns, although I believe I found Angus and his wife. I have always taken Scotland's People as the authoratitive source of all official scottish records, it will be interested in seeing their response to my query.


If you have something on Duncan around 1861 that is good news. Prior to 1855 death records are few and far between. In the 1851 info you sent Duncan is shown as 60, so at 1861 he would be 70ish, at that age I would have thought he was too old to undertake long voyages


I'll keep you posted.

I still haven't figured out what happened to Duncan. I'm assuming that he emigrated somewhere, maybe Australia or New Zealand. If he stayed in Scotland there should be some record. I haven't found any records about Duncan beyond the 1861 census and it doesn't make sense.

Hi Angus,


Brilliant, I've just tried it and there he is!!


I usually select the "fuzzy matching" option on surnames to pickup odd spellings.


I will, now, be able to see where the children were born and the fact that Jean is a niece opens a link to another family.


Thanks again.

My great great grandfather Duncan McAulay was born in Kilchoman, whether the parish or the town is not clear, around 1795 according to the 1851 Scottish census.  He married Rachel McLellan - this is from Scotland's people:  "Duncan McAulay, joiner, in Glasgow & Rachael McLelland, residing there, married 4th June [1824] by Mr. Kenneth McKenzie, Gaelic Minister, in Gorbals."

His son Angus, my great grandfather, was born in Edinburgh in 1825.  While researching, I found an old  message posted on a MacAulay message board that someone owned a book about the Quakers with this inscription:  "Angus MacAulay/ Plasterer/ Edinborough Scotland/ 1875" and "Duncan MacAulay/ Rachel McLearan/ Born Kilnehearn/ Island of Isla." Elsewhere is written "Angus MacAulay/ Glasgow" and "Chester" (presumably Chester, Delaware County, PA)."  My  great grandfather, Angus was a plasterer by trade and he emigrated to Chester.  I don't know if Kilnehearn is a name Rachael had before marriage or if she might have been adopted or the name of a farm.  How frustrating that I couldn't track down that book.

It seems that there are two groups of McAulays on Islay - Those from Kilchoman and those from Portnahaven, who may make their living on the water.  They're not far apart (at least as the crow flies) and I've wondered about a link between the the two groups.   

 Through DNA testing, I see that I have a great many relatives in Ireland.  I suspect that my McAulays may have come from Ireland and later emigrated to Islay.  My great grandfather Angus spoke Scots Gaelic, played the bagpipe (probably much to the chagrin of his neighbors) and was married by a Free Church minister in Glasgow.    

If anyone knows anything about Duncan and the children from is first marriage, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Mike,

I could not find Duncan in the 1851 census on SP myself.  A friend in Scotland found the information in his records.  At the time, ScotlandsPeople and Ancestry were negotiating some sort of deal and SP didn't have him in their census registry.  Here is what I have on Duncan 1851:


Name: Duncan Mcauley
Age: 60
Estimated birth year: abt 1791
Relationship: Head
Gender: Male
Where born: Islay, argyle
Parish Number: 622
Civil Parish: Barony
Phillimore Ecclesiastical Parish Maps:
County: Lanarkshire
Address: 63 Main St Thom Sqr
Occupation: Joiner (house)
ED: 20A
Page: 21
Household schedule number: 79
Line: 15
Roll: CSSCT1851_142
Household Members:
Name Age
Duncan Mcauley 60
Mary Mcauley 20
John Mcauley 18
Margaret Mcauley 14
Jean Mcauley 10

At this point in time, Duncan's son Angus (my ggr fathr) was married to Catherine Milligan in Glasgow working as a plasterer.  Catherine died just a few years later and he emigrated to the US in 1854, I believe.  I don't know what happened to his Scottish children, Mary and Angus, aged 4 and 2 respectively, at the time of Catherine's death.

Paul,


I have not been able to pin down your Duncan in the Scottish census records, are you able to tell me where he was in the 1851 census.


I have noticed a (farm) called Kilchiaran close to Kilchoman. In the 1811 Tenants list there is a Duncan McLellan at Kilchiaran, phonetically this sounds like the placename in your email of 29th January.


I am not making any progress with my family, so any snippet might help me link up with any other snippet, one never knows.

At this point in time, Duncan's son Angus (my ggr fathr) was married to Catherine Milligan in Glasgow working as a plasterer.  Catherine died just a few years later and he emigrated to the US in 1854, I believe.  I don't know what happened to his Scottish children, Mary and Angus, aged 4 and 2 respectively, at the time of Catherine's death.

Paul,


I have not been able to pin down your Duncan in the Scottish census records, are you able to tell me where he was in the 1851 census.


I have noticed a (farm) called Kilchiaran close to Kilchoman. In the 1811 Tenants list there is a Duncan McLellan at Kilchiaran, phonetically this sounds like the placename in your email of 29th January.


I am not making any progress with my family, so any snippet might help me link up with any other snippet, one never knows.


Mike

Mike,
Thanks for taking the time to reply. There must be some relationship between the groups but I can't find it. I'm at one of those dead ends.

This is the start of my Islay line.  I have information on the next generation or two in most cases but would like to know if there are any current members.  Mr. Houston has been most helpful, especialy with the Fergusons.  The Campbell connection is still unknown.
