Re: Place name
When you have time, I would like to know more.
The earliest name I have is Duncan Cameron of Ballychatrigan. His son Hugh married a Nancy McNabb in 1826 on Islay. Duncan married a Margaret McVorran as a second wife in 1809 on Islay. I don’t know anything about Duncan or his first wife. I am a descendant of Hugh.
Merry Christmas and happy new year.

It was indeed a farm, in the south of the island, and where several generations of my ancestry lived, from at least the late 1700s to mid 1800s. They were tenant farmers and there were several families living and working on the farm at any given time. Mine left for Canada in mid 1800s, while cousins stayed on Islay to the present time.
My lot were mainly McNabb (various spellings) and McVoran (various spellings, and anglicized in the early 1800s by some family groups to Morrison). At least one branch in Ontario married a Young (perhaps yours). I don’t have my data open right now, and seem to be a bit tied up with another event, but would be interested in pursuing this with you later.
Merry Christmas and a Vaccinated New Year!
