Date   

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 Dee,

I'm researching my Cameron ancestors. 

The forenames Alexander and Robert are found in my ancestors, who were located mainly in Lanarkshire / Glasgow. 

My link to Islay is Mary McMillan, born 7th June 1826 in Kilchoman. Her parents were Finlay MacMillan and Catherine McVorran.

Mary McMillan married Alexander Cameron on 24 November 1854 in Cambuslang.

Kind regards

Bruce Cameron

Hello Shirley, and all on our List,

 

Sorry I am unable to help you with your names of interest.

My late husband was a Graham, Gordon Temple Graham, but born in England.

He had no idea he was actually of Scottish descent, although his name would surely have provided him with an inkling, one would think!

Name following family lines is a huge pain for me, too, both in Scotland and Ireland.

 

My interests are mainly Mitchell; Mather; Cameron; More; and Bulloch.

All resplendently blessed with James, Alexander, Robert, Malcom; Margaret, Mary, and Janet.

 

Good luck in your quest.

Kindly,

Greetings from British Columbia, Canada.  I am researching my MCCOLMAN ancestors arriving in Canada from Islay in the early 1830s. I'm hoping to learn more about the ancestors that remained on Islay too.  I have not researched the McColman families lately (I work from materials gathered by cousins many years ago that have been passed on to me) but would love to begin again - to verify the information I have and to learn more.  My ancestors born in Islay:

Great Great Grandparents:    Alexander "Sandy" John MCCOLMAN
b 19 Nov 1826 Baliharrie, Kilmeny Parish
d 7 Jun 1889  Manitoulin Island, Ontario
Married to Flora CAMPBELL
b 16 Aug 1826  Mulreesh, Kilmeny Parish

Greatx3 Grandparents:    Archibald Godfrey MCCOLMAN
b  21 Dec 1799  Carabus, Islay
d 15 Mar 1886 Midhurst, Ontario
Married  Catherine Anne BELL
b 13 Jan 1805  Baliharrie, Kilmeny Parish

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!!

Bruce, I spotted the McVorran name in your post. My 3rd Great Grandmother was Margaret McVorran m George Montgomery (founding Distiller of Octomore). I have been searching for years on the McVorran's but have never found anything other than that both her father and brother were both named John. I have heard that many McVorran's changed their name to Morrison. Do you have any information on the McVorran's? Here's a link to Margaret's profile: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/McVorren-1

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!

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.

It is hard work to dig out the information for a list post. So let's all take the extra moment to think about whether or not replying is the best way to ensure that your work makes some impact. 

If you write a new post, then create a descriptive subject line with names, dates and places.

If you are replying and have something to add to the subject line, then edit the subject before sending. And please quote only what is needed to make your reply understandable. 

Yes, it takes a minute or two longer sometimes, but it is so worth getting into the habit.

Thank you in advance for doing that.

Re: MORE

Dee Byster-Graham
 

Hi Tricia, and other MORE searchers,

 

Hoping you can assist me further re More:

Many years ago a researcher sent to me the names of the parents of Andrew MORE 1812-1889 as:

James More and Christina Cameron, neither with B/D dates.

No Cruickshank named in the document at all.

 

Would really appreciate your thoughts on this, could it be a different married couple entirely or did my researcher have the name wrong?

Grateful thanks in advance, as this is my stumbling block.

Kindly,

Dee.

Thank you so much, Trish, I shall amend my tree accordingly.

 

Obviously my info from years ago was incorrect. Very much appreciate your help, as I left searching the Scottish side of our family several years ago to concentrate on the Irish line.

Infinitely harder there, and became so involved I have only yesterday became interested again in my Mitchell etc line.

Interesting address quoted – 7 Barony Place (from memory) is the  house the Mitchell’s lived in!

I do have a private Tree on Ancestry, probably not all correct, put together in haste, but better than loose paper J

My G-G Grandfather was James MITCHELL b. 1812 Clackmannonshire – he is as far back as I can go to date. Grandad was Alexander Mather Mitchell last child to be born in Glasgow before the family immigrated to Oz.

An amazing man, hugely musical could play any instrument he happened to pick up. A coppersmith by trade, also cooper, made stained glass windows, blacksmith, farmer – he excelled at everything.

 

Dee.

Hi Trish, and error from me – last Mitchell is James MITCHELL b. 1791 – father of James b. 1813.

Thank you for the amendment – perhaps we both need strong coffee! J

Not to confuse matters, although admittedly I probably am, but we've got Muirs in our background also, but can find no link between them and those being discussed here.
This is the limited information I have:

Nothing much back beyond William Moir (1818-1861)/Catherine Woodward (1828-1896) except his parents were likely William and Mary Moir.   No direct evidence back beyond that.  Also no direct evidence of any surname spelled More or Muir other than the belief that all of them stem from the same gene pool farther back.     Our clan likely came from Aberdeenshire.   

The 1861 London Ontario census shows Margaret and William Moir and three kids (James 1819; Alexander 1824; and William 1818) living in the same neighborhood as the Woodwards and the Dwyers (all eventually intermarried).  St. Peter's Basilica Parish records there show our Moirs were married in 1850 and had child #1 (Isabella) in 1851.   

Have not yet found the precise emigration year or the vessel on which they sailed but it's narrowed to 1848-49.   And, William and three of the six kids all died in the 1861 influenza epidemic (December). 

Catherine remarried in Detroit in 1863 to Patrick Keating and they and the three surviving Moir kids (Isabella 1851, Daniel 1854, and William1856) moved up to Ovid in that time frame.

BTW, twins tend to run in the gene pool.   William was a twin (1818), his son Daniel had a twin John (1854), and his daughter Helen Neva Moore Newman (1897) was a twin (Hazel Eva 1897).

Hello from another More researcher,

My Mores were from Ross-shire as far back as the records allow, so can't help - sorry

John MORE c. 1700 married Margaret MCLEW born c. 1700
Their child of interest was John MOIR c 1727 married Katherine GRAHAM born c. 1729

Then William MORE/MOIR born c 1758 married Elizabeth BUCHANAN born  c. 1758
Offspring was David MORE c 1806 married Agnes Sloan GRAHAM in Glasgow, Lanarkshire in 1830

Their offspring of interest was David MORE 1847 who married Mary Jane CAMPBELL b. 1852
The family had migrated to Renfrewshire and Lanarkshire before scattering to many points of the globe including Canada and Australia.
Thanks for any help and will provide what help I can.
