So far I am unable to go further back with Andrew's parentage, however have a couple of generations at the back of Catharine.

A Daughter of this union married my great-grandfather ALEXANDER MATHER MITCHELL, prior to their immigration to Australia in 1880.

Thank you so much.

Good Evening All


A question/suggestion:  would those responding through my post where I am specifically seeking my McColman, Campbell, Bell and Graham ancestors not be better initiating a post with a subject line of their kin's names? - not tagging onto mine.  I'm a novice but I was able to draft my own search subject line.  I get excited when I see that someone is responding to my post - me thinking they are seeking my ancestors too - only to find that they are not - they are seeking completely different Scottish ancestors.


Thank you Dee for your response regarding Scottish naming patterns.  Family names repeated from generation to generation certainly keep us on our toes!  Best of luck to you too in your research of the ancestors!

Ann NICOLSON born Isle of Skye 1865 parents Archibald NICOLSON & Margaret MACLEOD

Ian & Margaret Kelly
 

Hi,

 

I am researching the NICOLSONS of Glenmore on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, and trying to find out what became of Ann NICOLSON who was born at Glenmore on 1 Sept 1865 to parents Archibald NICOLSON & Margaret MACLEOD.

 

I have found Ann aged 5 on the 1871 census and 15 on the 1881 census with her parents.  She is not on the 1891 census (with her parents) so may have married by then or living with another family.

 

I obtained a marriage certificate from Scotlands People but it was the wrong one.  It showed a marriage of an Ann Nicolson to John Nicolson in 1890 but the bride's parents were John Nicolson & Jane Stewart (wrong parents).

 

I would like to hear from anyone who is researching this NICOLSON family.

 

Thank you,

Ian, Australia

Hi Marjorie,

 

My G-G-Grandparents MORE who lived in Coalhill, Lannarkshire.

I have not yet started to research MORE, but they are related to both my MITCHELL, CAMERON, and BULLOCH families.

It is a long time since I have tried to trace this family so must apologise for the lack of data I can remember without studying my records again.

All I recall is that he was a Clerk in a coalmine and her given names were MARY BULLOCH, the second name was probably her mother’s or grandmother’s maiden name.

Shall have a look at the data for them over this weekend and get back to you .

 

Kindly,

Dee.

Re: Researching McLugash/McDougall, Caskie, Mitchell, McNeill, Campbell etc

John Kemplen
 

Hi Janet

I don't know if we have direct links but some of the names and locations that you mention crop up in my family too.  My great grandmother Margaret McLugash, born c.1852, was raised at Lenanbuie, probably by her grandparents Donald McLugash and Catherine Carmichael.  Her father was John McLugash and her mother was Margaret Campbell of Mulindry.  I do not think John and Margaret married, and I think they probably met when John was employed at Mulindry.  Margaret Campbell's parents were John Campbell (born c.1780) and Christy Carmichael (born c.1786).  My McLugashes seem to have moved around within a very small area at Gartachossan, Lenanbuie and Starchmill, only a mile or so from Mulindry, so it is not too surprising that there appear to have been a number of liaisons/marriages between McLugashes and Campbells in that area.

Regards

John

Thank you for reading my family names.  I hope to find others researching the families to share and compare notes.  The families all followed the Scottish naming pattern - keeping them in the proper group is difficult!!

Archibald NICOLSON and Margaret MCLEOD of Isle of Skye

Ian & Margaret Kelly
 

Hi,

I am trying to find some living descendants of Archibald NICOLSON (1828-1907) and Margaret MCLEOD (c1832-after 1911 census).  They lived at Glenmore on Isle of Skye and are both buried on Skye.  Archibald was a crofter.  They had eight children as under:

 

Mary 1859-1898 (known as old Mary) married William CAMPBELL. They had only one child Nora Mary (1898-1899).

 

Christy b1861 married 2nd cousin John NICOLSON. Had about eight children: 1 Donald, 2 Archibald, 3 Rachel, 4 Hugh, 5 Murdoch, 6 Alexander, 7 Norman, 8 John.

 

Catherine 1862-1950 married William COULL – no children.

 

Mary 1864-1962 (known as young Mary) married John MACLEOD. Had one child Norman Nicholson Macleod who married Catherine Mary UMBERS. I have this one sorted.

 

Ann b1865 – no further information.

 

Murdo 1867-1955 married Euphemia (Effie) MACASKILL. Had five children: 1 Mary Kate (never married, no issue), 2 Archibald, went to Canada & married Ingrid ASPELUND,  3 Sarah married Malcolm DUNCAN, 4 Norman married Joan BRADLEY, 5 Margaret (Rita) married George ROSIE (lived Aberdeen area).

 

Norman 1869-1871.

 

Norman 1871-1896 never married, no issue.

 

I would like to hear from anyone who has information on any of the above people.

 

Thank you,

Ian Kelly, Queensland, Australia

Hi Everyone

 

Great to be in the groups and thanks to all those who have made it possible

 

My prime interest is in the Stoddart line of Selkirk, centred on my great grandfather Thomas Stoddart who emigrated to New Zealand in 1874

 

I have been able to gather considerable materials but always interested in any links

 

Many thanks again

 

Brian

Re: Farquhar McLeay died 1836

Eliz Cook
 

Hi all
I am looking for Farquhar McLeay, husband of Ann Campbell, whose last child Colin was born on 1836 and is registered in both Urray and Kilmorack.
In 1841 Ann is in Kilmorack listed as a crofters widow.
Family story is that Farquhar’s father was Donald McLeay of the 77th Rosshire Heilanders, but there are no Donald boys among Farquhars children, they were Murdoch, Murdoch, John, Alexander, Farquhar,Colin and girls Ann and Margaret.
Where did Farquhar die? who were his parents?
Ann,Colin and Murdoch migrated to Tasmania, Australia, in 1855.

Hi Everyone, I am one of those people who lurk in the background.  That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the work you do regarding the lists.  My excuse is my lack of technical knowledge.

 

My interests are:

Hendersons from Wick (James Henderson was born there © 1812 and went to Dublin where he worked in the fishing industry and married Catherine Smith/Smyth/Smythe.

Keith – Dumbarton early 1800s

McKellar – Dumbarton early 1800s

Logan & Kerr Straiton, Co Ayr late 1700s

Beattie Glasgow, early 1800s

Craigie -  Rutherglen, 1800s

Drysdale – Alva, Stirlingshire 1700s

Liddell – Alva, Stirlingshire, 1700s

Boothman – Denny, Stirlingshire 1700s

Just to name a few.

With thanks, June
