All the family trees on Ancestry have Farquhar McLeay death
as 1838 in Scotland but with no place. I have search Scotland people and cannot
find a death for Farquhar McLeay either side of that date by 10 years.
There seems to be a couple of families from around the same
area that could be connected.
This one is Farquhar McLeay and Ann Mclver who had the following
Murdock Baptism 7/10/1822 in Urray,
Alexander Baptism 21/9/1824 in Urray,
Farquhar Baptism 21/9/1824, in Urray
Farquhar Baptism 14/4/1827, Urray
Your family is Farquhar McLeay and Ann Campbell born c1811
Ardacky Kilmorack, Inverness, Scot.
Margaret Baptism 15 March 1832 Kilmorack, Inverness,
Scotland Film/no 990709
Ann Baptism 28 April 1835 Kilmorack as above
Colin Baptism 8 Dec 1836 Kilmorack same as above.
I found a Margaret McLennan married to a Simon Fraser 1870
but I did find a Margaret McLeay married to a Finlay Fraser in 1855 in
Also found a Farquhar McLeay in NSW Police a Probationary
Constables 1 Nov 1884 and 1 Feb 1885 police officer shield no 4785. He might be
something to do with your family.
Hope this helps

My Farquhar married Ann Campbell in 1820 in Urray and my rel
Colin is his last born 1836. Ann is listed as a crofters widow in Kilmorack in
the 1841 census.
However they did have an earlier born son also Farquhar who
we think went to America, not in Kilmorack in 1841.
Interesting also Farquhar senior and Ann Campbell had a
daughter Margaret who married Simon Fraser in Inverness and had a daughter Ann.
I do not think this Kiltarlity Farquhar is my ancestor
Colins brother, but it is possible, and something to keep in mind . He is too
young to be Colins father. Of course ages can be incorrect...
My understanding is the family moved from Blarnabee Urray
about the time Colin was born and Farquhar died around then.
Mother Ann and children Colin, Murdoch and Ann McLEAY
went to Australia on the Storm Cloud in 1855. Later Granddaughter Ann FRAZER
joined them after both her parents died in Scotland.
So many rePeated names make it difficult.

There is a Farquhar McLeay at Kiltarlity in the 1841
census. He married Ann Fraser in 1837 and they have two children born 1838 and
1839 or so.
He is aged 58 in 1871.
