The valuation rolls have them in Auchendrean, Lochbroom in 1855.

I think Auchendrean is in Strathcanaird which is the narrow straight stretch on the A835, just to the south of Drumrunie.

Have you seen the original rather than the transcription?

I'm thinking that the ie in Drienach might have been misread as a ui.

Here's an old map~

Fascinating read - although I still can't find what I'm looking for - but does it really matter   ;) ;) ;)

I have found them on the 1851 census in Achindrean.

Yes, that's where I found them so I looked at the valuation rolls. As I said in my later posts, Auchendrean/Achindrean is in Strathcanaird (pronounced Strathcanyard) to the south of Drumrunie.
