Murdoch McLeod (b. c1790)
« Reply #18 on: Saturday 15 January 11 15:50 GMT (UK) »
I have found an Australian website which suggests that:

(i) Murdoch was the son of William and Henny MacLeod (both born c. 1770); and
(ii) He married Catherine MacLeod from (or in) Bracadale in 1811.

Does this information agree with your data? When I have tried searching for the marriage, I've found more than one possibility:

(a) Marriage to Catherine Graham in Barvas in 1816
(b) Marriage to Catherine Urquhart in Cromarty in 1819 (Not so likely as this Murdoch was a sailor.)

Like you, still looking for the death of Murdoch & Catherine's son, Murdoch (Junior). Been searching the on-line information on gravestones (which I'm sure you have done, but I hadn't looked there before.)

Best wishes, Kevin

My husband's ancestors - MacPhersons - lived and worked at Lubachoinnich for many years and some are buried in the churchyard at Croick while others emigrated to USA, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. The MacPhersons originally came from the Laggan area in Inverness-shire.

Hi Cinders,  I believe that William Matheson, the founder of the Glenmorangie Distillery, was born in Lubachoinnich.  He subsequently moved to Edderton, when his father became a brewer there (presumably at Balblair Distillery).

Hi mrsaird
"My husband's ancestors - MacPhersons - lived and worked at Lubachoinnich" [ Lubconich ]

Did they go to school down the valley to Croick, or west over the hill to Duag Bridge ?
 which was a sideschool for Lubcroy ( in StrathOykel ) ?
Interest is from helping to look after Duag Schoolhouse for the bothies association

To be honest I have no idea, I know that one of the MacPhersons is listed on the census as a school teacher but have never looked in to the school side of things. If you are descended from the MacPhersons of Lubconich you must be related to my husband.

  Ta, no, I do have MacPhersons, but they descended from Neil, a shepherd who lived at Poul-Tigh-Keriken in Assynt
