Sutherland / Re: Is there a place called Laiwick?

I have a copy from the National Archives, it is virtually unreadable - I was hoping it would state who his wife or other family were to prove he is the one but, unfortunately, from what I can make out, it doesn't.   :(

Thank you for all the replies  - Anabanana's suggestion of  Layer- ig  seems quite possible.

Yes, it seems that Laiwick simply doesn't exist.  Someone's writing has been undeciferable. ???

I have an army record from 1806 giving address as LAIWICK, SUTHERLAND.

I can find no trace of Laiwick in Sutherland. Are there any placenames that are similar?
Help gratefully received as I am in Ireland and not so familiar with placenames in Scotland.


This is interesting as I am researching my GGG Grandfather, Robert Mcleod b. 1776, Sutherlnd (married to Fanny Little b. 1781 Londonderry) and have found an Army record which is very similar to the one you have quoted, and I have also tried to locate Laiwick.
Are you perhaps researching the same name?

Thank you Steve, this is very helpful.  I  have found William with his wife, Jane, daughter Kitty (Catherine) and Patrick on the 1841 Scotland Census via Ancestry.   Frances appears on the 1851 Census (Ancestry).  I think therefore that the Freecen family you mention are not applicable.   Many thanks  - I will certain explore Google..

Scotland / Re: QUESTION: Did 'Huguenots' settle in Scotland?

My husband's family  TRIM believe they descend from Flemish refugees (probably Huguenots) who fled from religious persecution to DEVON.  They were LACE MAKERS, and Devon Trims it seems were involved in making the lace for Queen Victoria's wedding dress.  Doe anyone have any information on the Trims, please?

Does anyone have info on Robert Mcleod  - Crofter/Farmer; b. 1776 Sutherland and Fanny Liddle b. 1781 Londonerry. (various spellings of her name, including Francess Leighton).
I have some knowledge about some of their children:   William; Donald; Jean; Robert; another William; John, and David (my GGG Grandfather). All born Reay and Farr.  But I need any information on Robert and Fanny's  parents, and siblings.  Thanks.

I believe  Dr. Patrick Brodie Henderson Mcleod M.D., C.M. (born about 1841/43 in Strathy, Sutherland) is my ancestor via his father William Mcleod (born 1813 in Reay, Caithnes) who was my Great Great Great Uncle.  I believe he first became a Police Constable then entered medical school and settled in New Deer, Aberdeenshire.  His sister, Catherine Mcleod, lived with him.  I would appreciate any information about him and/or Catherine, if there is an Obituary somewhere and so on. Thank you. Denise Taylor (nee Macleod)
