MacAuley, MacAulay, McAulay to Lambton County, Ontario, Canada
« on: Saturday 04 April 15 13:12 BST (UK) »
My ggg-grandfather was Ewan MacAuley from Moray. He was born in 1833 at Cromdale and Inverallan And Advie, Inverness. He married Mary Smith (b.1826) in 1857 in Nethy Bridge. They immigrated to Canada in around 1860 (although I haven't found any sources to confirm) and settled in Lambton County, Ontario.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Is there a typo error in Ewan's date of birth  ???

Welcome to RootsChat  :).

In the 1861 Canada census, Ewan and Mary already have 2 children who were born in Canada West (as Ontario was known at the time). Their son John is 3 and daughter Margaret is 1. This would suggest the couple left Scotland quite soon after their marriage.

Added: had it typed so will post.
