Thank you all for your help. Do you think it possible that where it says " youngson" in your translation that this may have been Wm. or William son of Walter?

I see that you are researching Clan McDonald. Did you know that Donaldson = Clan McDonald. I am showing that the William Innes married a Margaret Donaldson on the 15 Nov.1683 in Saint nicholas. They had 5 children.

Would you like to discuss this further on a personal level.

I haven't enough info. on my MacDonald to compare.

I am stuck for now with my 3 x g g/father Donald born c1791 South Uist & died 1856 S/Uist...

His daughter was the informant of his death & didn't know the m/s of his mother although his father was John b c1770 or prior?

I don't actively search MacDonald for obvious reasons but as I do a lot of Uist research, I'm hopeful of finding something e.g. a/some sibling(s) at some stage but I'm in no rush as I know the earliest S/Uist records don't begin until 1820 (Baptisms) & 1832 (Marriages).

Yes, I'm aware of many different names connected with the M(a)cDonald surname.

There is a marriage extract between William Innes and Elizabeth McDonald dated 13 Sep.1770 in Inveravon, Banff Scotland. Sadly, there were no children recorded in this marriage but I have been able to confirm that Alexander Innes born about 1774 was their son.

When this Alexander died his DE shows us that his parents were William Innes and Elizabeth McDonald .
There were at least 4 more children including William Innes , my direct ancestor.

Would you like to look further into this?

Definitely not, on the basis I have no clues as to the origins of my John MacDonald b c1770 or prior i.e. to me it would be like throwing a dart to see where it lands & start investigating from there...

It's one thing investigating a lead but Banff is a long distance from South Uist where my MacDonalds were & I haven't managed to connect them to Clanranald i.e. anything else would be speculation without any pointers for now.

I believe it's very likely some of mine emigrated in the 1700s & 1800s.
