Hello to all. I am hoping somebody can help me with my search of my line of MacRaes. I have been searching for John (john of coilrie) mcrae born about 1755 and married christina macrae and possibly a mary as well. Iam descended from his youngest son Farquhar MacRae who married first a Flora MacRae and then Barbara MacLennan. They left Scotland and came to Australia on the William Nicol in 1837. As far as I know we are descended from John Breac MacRae born 1614 but I have not been able to make all the connections. Thanks and hoping to hear from someone. ps What a wonderfull clan to be a part of, Maree

Farquhar came to Australia with his cousin, Alexander - whom I am descended from. Happy to share what I have compiled on this family. Margaret

Hi Maree, I to am from Farquhar and Barbara. Julie did a lot
of research for our branch. I have not been able to find much more than F&B parents which I was not very confident about.
So it's great to see some info going further back.
I would appreciate seeing the he earlier stuff.
P.J.

Hi Maree,

I am descended from Farquhar MacRae and Barbara McLennan. He did come out on the William Nicol and settled in Mittagong. I have some family tree stuff my aunty gave me if you are interested. This is how I fit in - Farquhar had a son John MacRae who had a son Kenneth MacRae who had Allan MacRae who then had Peter MacRae and then me. Thanks Lucas MacRae.
