Re: Daniel and Jennette McArthur of Islay

 

Hi there
I show a 5.1cM link to you, and all my Mother's family come from Islay so chances are that is where the match comes from.  I've got McArthur ancestors, but Islay records are thin on the ground before 1800 which means it's hard to get back to show a connection.
(Are you Robert, by the way?)

Re: Surname interests

Hi Julie,
We have Lang/Laing and Robertson, Dougal, Walker all connected to each other, but for the Redding, Wallacestone, area of Polmont , Stirklingshire.  One of ours David Laing, with his wife Isobel//Isabella  Hay and some of his family emigrated to New Zealand in the 1860's from Scotland. We havent found any Laing matches in our DNA on ancestry as yet other than one David Laing who doesnt reply.  I think he maybe has same problem as for our McArthurs and cannot match anyone.  NO with the name McArthur at least. with our McArthur we do have  matches with familytreedna but not the Mcarthu rname, so wondering if that is his problem as well..  We have Laing back to a William Laing/Land, Seaman no birth and nomarriage, but had three children with Elizabeth Dougal in 1804, David, William and Thomas Livingston Laing, the last born 1814.

Not much help to you but, thought I would let you know we do have some Laing/Laing, it was my late mother in laws maiden name. Her gret grandparents were James Robertson Laing and Jean/Jane Bennie of Polmont Stirling,Scotland they arrived in Tasmania 1857.
regards
Edie McArthur

Hi All, my surnames are Potter, Crow, Lang /Laing and Wilson mainly from around West Lothian ( Uphall, Livingstone, Whitburn, Bathgate) My 2x great grandfather married Marion Laing and their son James married Elizabeth Robertson Crow. They emigrated to New Zealand with four children in 1902. James had been an overseer & Joiner at Calder House in Mid Calder. I am not sure why they came here but maybe for a better life.

Daniel and Jennette McArthur of Islay

Robert McArthur
 

I’d like to hear from anyone with knowledge about my great-great-great grandparents Daniel and Jennette McArthur, who emigrated from Scotland to North Carolina in America in the 1770s. They claimed to have come from Islay. Although there is abundant information about their descendants, I know nothing of their background, and to date I have not identified any of their Scottish ancestry. A few years ago Roger McWee told me he had found some data on Daniel, but no information linking him to any farm or town. I frequently receive Family Tree notifications of y-dna matches, including some strong Nordic, Isle of Mull, and Scottish mainland matches, but so far nothing with a definite link to Islay, and nothing identifying a common direct ancestor. I have seen trees indicating that Daniel’s parents were named John McArthur and Jean Hair, but no supporting evidence of that. Family Finder has been useful in helping me find some relatives, mainly distant cousins here in America. I have uploaded my dna information to Gedmatch (kit T894735) and am in process of deciphering the match information in that database (looks like a long learning curve).

Re: Charles Campbell 1787?

Edie Mc
 

Hi,
I cannot really help you but wonder if he may have been the William Campbell who fathered an illegitmate daughter born at Cambuslang in 1850.  Her mother was  Isabella Stevenson, who was born at Cambuslang, Lanarkshire.  the daughter was Christina Stevenson Campbell. I have no idea where William Campbell was born. The name Christina may have come from Isabellas mother Christina though.

Isabella left Lanrakshire and worked in Renfrewshire till she came to Tasmania wihtout her daughter who lived to the age of 28 after giving birth to four children.  She married Robert  Black of Campsie, Stirlingshire. We only found out about her two years ago when someone  was curius who she was and did a bit of sleuthing.

I seem to have hit a wall when it comes to ancestors in Islay.  My grandfather was Alexander Campbell b.1872, illegitimate.  His mother was Janet Campbell and his father was down as Alexander McDonald.  Janets father was William Campbell b 1824, from Kilmeny on Islay.  His father appears to be Charles Campbell and his mother Christina Campbell (Campbell), both late 1700's.  I can find no info on either of them so if anyone has come across them or any suggestions etc.  would really appreciate it.

Hi Bob,
No I dont know if there is a list for Gatesheqd, Newcastle but can tell you I lived there on a working holiday for four months in 1998 and Newcastle Library have a great Reference Library. I spent a lot of time there, four times a week. They even have a copy of the Times newspaper on microfilm there and a set of the BMD Civil Registration fiche. amongst other records, that may be handy to you.

Hi folks, this group has a wiki, and each of us can add and edit it, upload files as well. If someone wants to begin gathering links to maps and put them onto a wiki page, I encourage you to do so. These assets are available in each subgroup as well! 

We don't have enough storage to upload maps and such, but links take up very little room. :-)

All the best,

Re: Clan MacDougall

J LOCHRIDGE
 

Interested in your Alexander Campbell who left Islay in 1774.  My  ancestor Alexander Campbell born Killarrow Islay in 1771 didn't leave Islay but it would be good to know if we share DNA?  I have my results on Ancestry and on Gedmatch.  Sorry I can't help with the Clan question, except that the name McDougall was also McLugash in Islay sometimes.
Regards
Johan

My ancestor, Alexander Campbell, left Islay around 1774 as a child, and most of what we know about him comes from his will, which states he was born in Kildalton and suggests he traveled to Johnstown NY with John Carmichael, also of Kildalton, who was some years older. The one other piece of information about him came from his granddaughter, who was my great-grandmother, Jennie Campbell Jones. According to my great-grandmother, Alexander's family was tied to Clan MacDougall. I'd be intertested in learning more about possible ties between Islay and Clan MacDougall.
