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,

Hello Jan, My Charlotte Murdoch (dau of Rev John Murdoch and Catherine Campbell) married Neil Currie in 1792 at Bowmore, they had 4 children that I know of Donald b 1793, John b 1795, Catherine Anne b 1806 and Mary b 1810. Big gap, maybe more in between, but have not found yet.  Catherine and Mary both baptised in Kilmeny.  My main research is of the Murdoch's.  Let me know if you find a connection.  Regards Candy

Re: Currie / McVurich - please help

Thank you, Alan, for the info & phonetic pronunciation - I must say that even though my own ancestry is well over 70% Scot/Irish Gaelic is not a language that comes readily, or at all, ha.

Alas, with all the Curries I have in the tree I don't yet have any of the ones you've mentioned. It seems so unlikely to me that there can be so many Curries that I'm still missing dozens of them, considering the size of Islay. But the proof of the pudding.... :)

I don't think I'll be able to help with that.      At that time several families would have occupied one house, and names of houses have changed over the years.   I'm not sure how the numbering on Valuation Roll/Census records went.

Flora,
Your message clicks with me as well. My grandmother was born on Shore Street in Bowmore as well. I see that you are a current resident of the town and so might have an answer to my query.
My grand mother was Flora McDiarmid (b. 1883 on Shore Street, Bowmore - 1960 in Saskatchewan, Canada). Her parents were Archibald McDiarmid and Agnes MacDonald. I have found the Valuation Rolls for 1885 and 1895 showing that Archibald McDiarmid was a tenant of a building on Shore Street.
I would like to be able to identify the building in which Gramma was born. Would you be able to suggest a way to connect the Valuation Roll to a current address?
Thanks for any help you are able to provide.

Hi Philip,

Your message caught my attention. I too have a number of ancestors buried in the New Church Cemetery in Bowmore as 3 of my grandparents are descended from Islay residents. If there is a set of photographs I would love to see them.

You also mentioned the McFadyen family. While I have been too busy with other parts of my family trees, our line does intersect with the McFadyens. My paternal great grandparents were Donald Currie (1845 - 1904) and Catherine McFadyen (1851 - 1933). Catherine was the daughter of John McFadyen (b. 1803 in Kildalton) and Margaret McIntyre (b. Kildalton). Unfortunately that is all the information which I have.

Hi all / Roger McWee / Russ McGilvary,

 

Roger was a great help to me with my McFadyen family research a year ago, unfortunately I let the trail go cold and did not follow up – I would like to try and progress once again

 

Roger advised me of an inscription at Bowmore Church Graveyard of my GG Grandparents, Angus and Ann McFadyen. I also understand that Roger has recorded and photographed all visible Islay gravestones including Bowmore

 

Is there somewhere I can view the Islay gravestones/photos including Angus and Ann’s?

 

Full Inscription: In loving memory of Donald McFadyen, Postmaster Bowmore who died 26th March 1899 aged 66, his wife Euphemia Morrison who died 24th January 1885 aged 55 years, his father Angus McFadyen who died 8th July ____? aged 60 years and his mother Ann McGilvary who died 19th March 1874 aged 80 years, his daughter Ann who died 7th November 1962 aged 66 years

 

Further ancestors of interest are: -

 

GG Grandparents: John Morrison B 1791 D 29.10.1875 aged 67 also buried at Bowmore Churchyard and spouse Margaret McEwan B 1801

 

Parents of above John Morrison: Hugh Morrison B 1775 and Mary Morrison B 1786

 

If anyone can give me a link to the Islay gravestones/photos, that would be great

 

Any help would be appreciated – thank-you!

Re: Currie / McVurich - please help

Alan Cameron, do you have Duncan (b.1763) Currie’s siblings?   My 3x great grandfather was Gilbert Currie (1769-1828).  Gilbert married Margaret McArthur (1773-1861) from Kilchoman.  Their son, Neil Currie (1811-1875), my 2x great grandfather, was born in Cairnduncan.  I do not know Gilbert’s parents or his siblings.

Re: Currie / McVurich - please help

Alan Cameron
 

If it helps, I have some details of my Currie family. They were from Cairnduncan or CairnDonnachie which is in the Gruinard area of Islay.

My grandmother was Anne Curie (1873-1954) She married John Fraser who was born and brought up in Cladadh, Portnahaven). Anne's parents were John Currie (1823-1877) and Mary Smith. John's parents were Malcolm Currie (1794-1855) and Elizabeth Ferguson (1799-1862). Malcolm's parents were Duncan Currie (1763 - ?) and Mary McCauley ( 1767 - ?). Duncan's parents were Neil McCurry(1732 -?) and Mary Ferguson.(1735-?)

I have a list of descendants from Malcolm and John which may be of interest.

Incidentally, I saw a recent debate about the name. It is supposed to be derived from Murchadh who was the Poet / genealogist to the Lords of the Isles. His sons would have been MacMurchadh ie (son of Murdoch) and the next generation would be macmhicmhurachidh ie the son of the son of Murdoch. Mhic is grammatically the genitive of mac and simple means of the son. In time this became  Mac 'ichmhurichidh sounded machk-eech-oorich-ee) where the mh is silent and from there the mac  is dropped leaving simply coor-ee and then Currie. So your Curries in Islay are descended from an ancient and  important bardic family, associated with the Lords of the Isles.
