Cameron - Munro, Urquhart, Black Isle
« on: Wednesday 09 July 08 04:00 BST (UK) »
Hi All,
Trying to track down any info on Duncan Cameron and Anne Munro, m. 21 May 1790 in Urquhart. I've tracked down 3 children on FamilySearch:

Christian b. 25/5/1791, Urquhart and Logie Wester (presumably died young)
Christian b. 3/2/1793, Urquhart and Logie Wester (my ggg-grandmother; my gg-grandfather's (George MacKenzie) mother-in-law)
Andrew b. 16/1/1795, Urquhart and Logie Wester

Christian Cameron married James Urquhart, in Urquhart on 14 July 1814

On notes my grandfather left he's commented that the Cameron line may have come from the Lochaber region.

Also found some children born to a Duncan Cameron and Helen Munro in the 1780's which does make me wonder whether it's the same Duncan and he's remarried a sister (Anne)?

Any info much appreciated.

Cheers
Darryl

Hi Darryl
hope you dont mind
I had a look at the IGI at the marriages
for Duncan Cameron and Anne Munro
there is only one that is an extracted marriage 1706 Petty Inverness
the others are all submitted entries
so too are the births of the children of Duncan and Anne
there are no extracted entries for the children
you should be cautious of the submitted entries especially when there
are no extracted entries to back them up
do you have any census records for Duncan that may show him with Anne
if not maybe you should ask someone to maybe see if they can find them on the census
then you could confirm they were born  in that area
sorry I dont have access to the census's

Thanks Elaine for the cautionary note. I'm confident about everything back to the marriage of James Urquhart and Christian Cameron as it matches with my grandfather's notes, but the leap back to Christian's birth and Duncan was based on the names of James and Christian's children and is more of 1 possible lead rather than something I'm certain about. Was hoping to pick up some additional info that might help me decide about Duncan one way or the other.
Cheers

Hi

Scotlands People have the marriage as Daryl states - 21st May 1790, Urquhart and Logie Wester:

Duncan Cameron in Balnabin was contracted with Anne Munro there and were married


Also it confirms the baptisms of children to this couple in Urquhart:

25 May 1791 - Christian
3 Feb 1793 - Christian
16 Jan 1795 - Andrew


There are two possibilities for Ann Munro* in U and L W:

23 June 1871  d/o Alexander Munro and Elizabeth McCrae
15 December 1775 d/o James Munro and Ann Gordon

and one possible for Duncan Cameron:

17 June 1768 s/o William Cameron and Ann Steuart

Given the names of their children I'm not sure about these but they may be worth following up.

It might be worth doing a wider search for either of these with a mother Christian (probably Ann but sometimes the naming conventions were reversed)

Regards
