There is a family in the 1841 census listed at Deraclete, Harris ( later census shows this as Diraclet which is very close to Tarbert)
Murdoch Mcleod 50
Marrion 45
John 20
Catharine 5
Roderick 3
Donald 1
The family are still at Diraclet in 1851 ( but no Donald) and 1861 ( no Donald or Marrion).
Can’t find any births on Familysearch so no idea what Marrion’s Maiden name was.

I am wondering if the Donald born 1841, son of Murdo and Christina Campbell, died after the 1851 census. Next son, born c. 1852-3, also called Donald in memory of Murdo's father and this is who we have in the 1871 census? As we know, important family names are re-used if an earlier born child dies with an important family name.

This is all pre 1855 so not possible to find more. I cannot see any of this family OPR entries for births or christenings pre 1855 to help further really.

Wish we could find Murdo, Christina and Isabella at least in 1861. Have tried...but failed!

There is a possible death for Marion in Harris in 1855. She is age 48. Marion is given as age 45 in both 1841 and 1851 so not sure what is correct but 48 would fit the 1851 age. Her mmn was Campbell but she is only listed under the surname McLeod. Might be worth a look. Bonanza if it is correct as you have an 1855 death certificate.

Forfarian...Monica...Isobel...

Thank you for your emails of yesterday evening. A lot to think about, investigate, peruse etc, but it seems we are all agreed that the Murdo & Christina Macleod I have are NOT the parents of the Donald who married Margaret NICOL.  So it's back to square one in a way, however, you have given me a lot to go on and I thank you all very much.  It will take me a few days to sort this out but I'll be back in touch....
