Well, well, cousin 'heilanlassie'  :)

Hi cuz, yes this Forum is superb. So many helpful, friendly people.

Hopefully - with all heads together - we will solve the mystery of " the lunatic " living with my great-grandmother in 1911.

There MUST be a family connection - and I won't rest until I find it  :-*  :-*  :-*

Yes  :P  :P  :P

My grandmother was a Mackenzie, my great-grandmother was a Mackenzie, Christina - who married a Mackenzie, Duncan.
My great-great grandmother was a Mackenzie, Catherine - who married a Mackenzie, Kenneth.

Catherine's parents were Murdoch and Janet Mackenzie (my great-great-great grandparents)

Kenneth's parents were Alexander and Margaret Mackenzie (my great-great-great grandparents)

And they all came from Lochbroom  ;)  ;)  ;)

 ;D.
I actually meant Christina....I'm trying to link her with the Mcraes/Mcrees.
It's interesting that Mary Mcrae's unmarried daughter is Alexina/Lexy McKenzie.
As I said earlier the area was brimming with McKenzies but I wonder if that's where your link is ?
A connection between Lexy and Christina?

Looby :)

If it's of any help  ???

Christina's mother, Catherine (my great-great grandmother, 1816-1889), had a brother, Simon, 1816-? who went on to marry a Janet Macrae, 1821-?, in 1848.

According to my research (which I hope is correct) Janet Macrae's parents were Donald Macrae and Ann.
Janet had two brothers (that I have found so far) Alexander, 1808-? and Donald, 1821-?

There are an awful lot of McKenzies and Mcraes in this story ;D
I've been trying to find Mary Mcrae and Alexandrina McKenzie on the 1841 Census and so far (and with a lot of variations on spellings and abbreviations for names ) I've had no joy. I wanted to see who they were living with.
Need to call it a day now,
Good luck,
Looby :)

Yes, it's quite easy to lose your day, just searching for possibilities.

Thanks for your help

Hi

Just to say that the merchant navy records are on FindMyPast. Look in the education and work section. They have transcribed Philip McRee b 1807 as born in Cromarty, Ross and Cromarty in the free search but you would need to look at the complete record to see if this was correct.

William
Dent (Haltwhistle and Sacriston), Bell and Jetson (Haltwhistle), Postle, Ward, Longstaff, Purvis, Manners, Parnaby and Hardy (Co. Durham), Kennedy and McRobert (Banffshire), Reid(Bathgate), Watson (Wemyss), Graham (Libberton), Sandilands (Carmichael), Munro (Dingwall)

I haven't been idle  ::)  ::)  ::)

I have, however, found some more information - but still can't find the possible family connection.

I now know that Philip George Alexander McCree / McRae was born on 16 April 1850, and baptised on 15 July 1850 in the Parish of Stoke Damerel, Devon.

I also know that Philip George Alexander's parents, Mary Ann Howell and Philip McCree were married on 27 September 1847 in the Parish of Stoke Damerel, Devon.

Mary Ann Howell was a widow, and her father was stated to be Richard Williams. Philip's father was stated to be Christopher McCree.

Now I need to find out details of Mary Ann Williams marriage to Howell, and ideally, I would also like to trace details of Christopher McCree, because they might help me find the link to my Mackenzie family.

I know that Philip McCree was born in Scotland, but I can't find him on an 1841 census - but there again, I don't know if he would have been living in Scotland or England.

I'm also presuming that Philip and Mary Ann must have both died sometime between 1861 and 1871, because Philip George Alexander appears in Ullapool on the 1871 census.

Please help me someone  ???  ???  ???
