MACLEOD family
« on: Wednesday 09 March 16 10:24 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I am a new member, looking for informations about my ancestors MACLEOD.

My GdGd father was Kenneth Macleod :

1868 : born in Knock, Lewis (Scotland), son of Kenneth.
1894 : MA (Master of Art) at the Aberdeen's University.
1899 : ordained into the Free Church of Scotland.
1902 : minister of UFC in West Manse Kincardine Ardgay, Ross-Shire.
1947 (march 27) : death in Tain, Ross-Shire.

I am looking for informations about his parents and his wife.

He had a son, John Macleod (born around 1884) who emigrated to South Africa.
He is my Gd father.

Hope to have some contact with someone who knows something more !

Rick48.

Hi Jim,

Thank you for all these informations.
Maybe he is the right person, do you know in what place the 1871 census was done ?

Here is a photo of the roll of graduates of the Aberdeen University, where there are some informations :



Good afternoon
Rick

Hi Rick

To add to Jim's info above. This is the birth index entry for son Kenneth mentioned above https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F79T-K5S

As you can see, birth date matches well, 16 May. The year though 1867 rather than 1868 as you have on the clip you posted .

Your Grandfather John, who headed off to SA. Can you reconfirm his birth year of c 1884. Seems to early if his father was born in 1867.

Monica

Hello !

Thank you for the informations to my request !

It is very possible kenneth had his son John at a very young age.
We had the birth date of 1884 from the family in SA.
He married Ida Florence Winifred JOHNSON (daughter of archdeacon of Zululand Charles JOHNSON) in 1923 in Kwazulu-Natal.
If you want more informations on that part of the family, I can pass it on !

I found a 1901 census in Laggan (Inverness county).
Kenneth was a visitor, born in Knock, licenfiale of Free Church of Scotland.
It is possible he's the same person !
I attach the document in the post.

Thank you for your welcoming in this forum !

Rick.

Extremely unlikely.
Kenneth would only have been 14 at the time of John's birth so extremely doubtful. It's also highly unlikely that his parents would have brought up a child of someone else's daughter claiming him as a son.
The evidence says Kenneth & Christiana are his parents. She would have been about 43/44 at the time which is the top end for a woman to have a child but this is far more likely than a 13/14 yo fathering one.
It did happen with the offspring of a daughter but I've never seen it with a son.
Have you found John in 1911?
Have you a marriage for him?
What makes you believe Kenneth MA is John's father?
