Alex & Janet Currie

Anyone have any info on an Alex and Janet Currie who had a daughter named Margaret Currie. She was born in 1899 (possibly '98)  in Bowmore. Margaret is my grandmother and all I have are her parents names and would love more info about my great grandparents and further back if possible.

Flora, that’s interesting that you don’t match either Lynn or I but that your husband is a match to both of us.  I have forgotten which Currie is your direct relative.

Lynn, Edward Currie and Barbara McLellan are my husband Calum’s 2x great grandparents.   Edward’s parents were Dugald Currie and Margaret McKay.

I believe you are a dna match with Calum on Ancestry.   He is on there as Malcolm MacAffer.

Re: Curries of Islay

Helen Hall
 

While the topic on the Curries is hot thought I would like to put in my interest in the Curries .

Dugald Currie b abt 1807 , Kildalton and wife Jane Buie b abt 1811 , Jura  .

Daughters Flora and Isabella emigrated to New Zealand, then Dugald , Jane , Alexander and Margaret arrived New Zealand 1877.

Eldest son John died Islay 1874 .

Mystery is a son Donald died in Invercargill , New Zealand  22 April  1917

Notes from death certificate

death certificate  1917/1733.

Donald married in America at the age of 26 yrs. His wife was Christina Morrison (surname hard to read)

and she  was deceased at the time of his death . He had been in New Zealand 4 yrs .Said to have 6 children living in America. Informant John Fraser, Undertaker

His birth date was taken from the 1860 Census listed as being 15 yrs.

His age at death was given as 58 yrs making his birth date 1859.

Look forward to any information.

Valuation Rolls

Glynn Currie
 

In 1905 my great grandfather was living on Shore Street in Bowmore, Islay. On the Valuation Roll for 1905 he is listed consecutively after the Temperance Hotel.
Is it a reasonable hypothesis to suggest that he was living next door to the hotel? Would that same hypothesis apply if he were to live further from the hotel, say 8 or 10 units away?
Does anyone know anything about the history of the Temperance Hotel?
Thanks for any help you are able to provide.

Hello Toni and Janet:

There is a possibility that my Mary Currie born 1794 ( per tombstone) could be the Mary born 1787 above. Especially since we believe her mother was a Sinclair, and I have the dna connections to Janet and her cousins.  I just wish I had better proof.

Subject: Re: [Islay] Donald Currie + Katherine Sinclair

 

Hello all,  I hope you don't mind if I butt into this conversation.   I found my record of the marriage between Donald Currie and Katherine Sinclair, Feb.1786.  This is what I have for their family:   1. daughter Catherine died 15 March, 1874, age 90, poor house.  If this is correct, she was probably their first-born around 1784.  2. Mary, Jan 3, 1787 at Sgarabus  3. Iver, Dec. 18, 1791.  4.  Ann, Sept. 1796 at Daill;  Alexander, Sept. 2,1798, Lurabus.  Emigrated to Egremont twp, Grey Co.  

So, if we used the traditional naming pattern, Donald's parents names might be "Iver Curry" and "Mary".  Thus, Katherine's parents might be "Alexander Sinclair" and "Katherine".   I know that is just speculative, BUT, Alexander Sinclair did live at Daill farm in the late 1790s, and his wife's name was Katherine.  "Iver" is a very unusual first name, certainly for Islay Sinclairs, so I suggest that the name is probably a Currie forename.   (just doing a quick google of Iver Curry + Argyllshire, I see that the name might have changed to "Edward", a more anglicized version.  I saw the name "Iver Curry" on the mainland of Argyllshire in a couple of places.  

Just thought it might help.

(PS - Hi Janet!  I think we corresponded a few years ago.  And Roger! ....many more years ago.  Yikes!   Anyway, it's nice to be back.)

Hello all,  I hope you don't mind if I butt into this conversation.   I found my record of the marriage between Donald Currie and Katherine Sinclair, Feb.1786.  This is what I have for their family:   1. daughter Catherine died 15 March, 1874, age 90, poor house.  If this is correct, she was probably their first-born around 1784.  2. Mary, Jan 3, 1787 at Sgarabus  3. Iver, Dec. 18, 1791.  4.  Ann, Sept. 1796 at Daill;  Alexander, Sept. 2,1798, Lurabus.  Emigrated to Egremont twp, Grey Co.  

So, if we used the traditional naming pattern, Donald's parents names might be "Iver Curry" and "Mary".  Thus, Katherine's parents might be "Alexander Sinclair" and "Katherine".   I know that is just speculative, BUT, Alexander Sinclair did live at Daill farm in the late 1790s, and his wife's name was Katherine.  "Iver" is a very unusual first name, certainly for Islay Sinclairs, so I suggest that the name is probably a Currie forename.   (just doing a quick google of Iver Curry + Argyllshire, I see that the name might have changed to "Edward", a more anglicized version.  I saw the name "Iver Curry" on the mainland of Argyllshire in a couple of places.  

Just thought it might help.

(PS - Hi Janet!  I think we corresponded a few years ago.  And Roger! ....many more years ago.  Yikes!   Anyway, it's nice to be back.)

Hi Jane,
It took me a little while to figure out this statement, but the way I read it is that it was Donald Currie who died on the moors in 1856 and is buried in Kilchoman graveyard, stone not found.
-
1856 Donald Currie, Agricultural Labourer, married son of Farmer, Archibald Currie and wife (unknown to his son Archibald Currie), missing on Kinigary Moor or Hill for 16 days was found dead on Kinigary Moor on the 24th February aged 70 years and is buried in Kilchoman churchyard as certified by his son Archibald Currie and registered on the 28th February by John Taylor, Bowmore.
I have read all the visible monuments in Kilchoman graveyard and the only one credited to a Duncan Currie I have attached, unfortunately the inscription was unable to be read apart from the words Donald Currie but even this stone is a leap of faith if it is to be the same chappie.  It is the word ‘By’ that is the key. Hmmmm the plot continues.
Regards Roger

Thanks Roger.   I do not expect ever to find out.     A question for you.   Family lore is that my Donald Currie had a son who died in a snow storm with his cousin.   Would that be the John Currie I heard about years ago?

Morning all:

 

My Donald Currie born about 1768 Bowmore married Catherine Sinclair 4 Feb 1786.  Roger McWee told me years ago no one knew who his father is, and if found out I would be told.   In my tree I put his father as John Currie question mark.  

 

Have a good day,

 

Janet Currie Chubb

Hi Iain! Which assumption, please & thanks. :) I have seen many unverified whoppers in trees too - hence my reluctance to add Ivar McVurich to the tree without knowing the connection to Currie. If anything I am overly cautious when adding people.

We could start a new thread - "ancestors born on Shore Street". :) Wayne's grandmother, Euphemia Ferguson McNeill was also born in a house on that street 3 Jan 1884.

Re Currie:

Janet Chubb does share a dna match with my first cousin and my third cousin.  (  Both descended from Mary Currie 1794-1877). No birth record has been found for Mary, but she does show up on the 1841 and 1851 census before moving to Canada.)
