MacKenzie and Macpherson-Applecross
« on: Friday 08 April 05 13:16 BST (UK) »
Am searching for anyone with information regarding Alexander Bruce MacKenzie  born 1868 who was a son of Roderick MacKenzie (Seaman) and Chirsty MacKenzie nee Macpherson who were marrried at Applecross in 1858. There may have been another son, Donald.

Alexander migrated to Australia.

Ring any bells with anyone?

Thanks

Hi Lyn
Per the 1881 Census, below: If this is the right family,  it looks as if Alexander did have a brother Donald , also one called Kenneth, and a sister Margaret. It also appears his father Roderick McKENZIE was dead by the time of the Census. The age of children Margaret, Donald & Kenneth in Census matches IGI births  to Roderick McKENZIE & Christy McPHERSON.  IGI also has other children: Annabella(1860) and  Isabella (1862) but did not find them on Census - possibly either died young or married by 1881.

1881: Inveralligin Road. Applecross, Ross & Cromarty
Volume 058/2   ED:  2  Pg  3
Head: Christian MC KENZIE, 46, wid, b: Applecross, Ross and Cromarty
Dau: Margt MC KENZIE, 16 , unm, Servt, b: Applecross, Ross and Cromarty
Son: Alexr MC KENZIE, 12 , Scholar, b: Applecross, Ross and Cromarty
Son: Donald MC KENZIE, 10, Scholar, b: Applecross, Ross and Cromarty
Son: Kenneth MC KENZIE, 7, Scholar, b: Applecross, Ross and Cromarty

Hi Lyn,

Did you ever find out who Roderick MacKenzie's parents were?  I have a Roderick McKenzie in my family tree from Inveralligin.

I believe Rodericks parents were Donald MacKenzie and Margaret MacLennan who were married in Applecross in 1830. Roderick was one of 6 children that I know of..

My Roderick was born 1832 .

Does any of that sound familiar to you?
Thanks

Hi Lyn,

Roderick's youngest brother Angus, born 1843, was my g-g-grandfather.  He married Margaret MacDonald (she was from Airshieldaig) in Cromarty in 1872.  The family later moved to Perthshire. Angus and Margaret's eldest son, Donald, married Jane Gibbons and emigrated to New Zealand in 1900. Donald and Jane's eldest son, Angus (my grandfather) joined the merchant navy and married and settled in Australia.

How are you related to the family?
