Inchrory Fodderty
« on: Sunday 01 February 15 20:33 GMT (UK) »
In searching for Mackenzies in Fodderty ( I know, needle in a haystack ) I have found many records that refer to Inchrory.  Can anyone advise if they know was this an area, farm etc. This would greatly help my search. thanks

thanks Claire. yes I have seen this before but thank you anyway.  I have found various references to Inchrory along with Fodderty and Strathpeffer etc as if it is a small village and reference to the name in Birth/Death extracts ect, even in the Census of 1851, but no reference on any map.   Will keep looking.

Hi Alex

Might be good to add some key family groups that you are researching and how you have come about place names (censuses/ BMDs for example). This is how people can best help on general searches for you.

Thanks Monica.        I have traced line back through William McKenzie born 01/08/1861 Fodderty son of John McKenzie Inchory and Margaret Bain.  I have a death entry for John McKenzie 5/02/1790 Fodderty Inchrory. I have various 'children' all sons or daughters of John McKenzie Fodderty as well as census records for McKenzies in Inchrory.   To confirm any of these as siblings of William, I think I need to understand what and where is Inchrory i.e. can it help to identify any of the children found as sons or daughters of John and Margaret as I would like to follow their line forward and see where life took them and theirs.

Google Earth shows 'Inchrory' some 9km due west of Corgarff and very close to the Cairngorms national park, it is also some 80km ssw of Fodderty. Google shows only one residence/building at Inchrory.
Fodderty is 3km due west of Dingwall.

Thanks Saddles.    The Inchrory in question is located in Fodderty Parish. There are references to this eg  'Chapel of the Virgin Mary of Inchrory - north side of the river opposite Fodderty churchyard'.  However there is nothing in this locality to suggest a settlement etc that would house families.

Hi there,

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

I am in NSW Australia, so perhaps I am way outside my own comfort zone,  but have you tried the wiki section of the familysearch organisation?  For example the following live link : 
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Fodderty,_Ross_and_Cromarty,_Scotland

The land-owners, none of whom are residents of the parish are; John Hay MíKenzie, Esq. of Cromartie; James Alexander Stewart of MíKenzie Esq. of Seaforth, M.P.; Alexander MíKenzie, Esq. of Hilton; Duncan Davidson, Esq. of Tulloch; The Proprietor of Strathconon; Sir George Stewart Mackenzie of Coul, Bart.; and Sir Colin MíKenzie of Kilcoy, Bart.

Cheers,  JM
