Hello, Macraes. Can someone tell me about McLennans at Kintail? An ancestor was John McLennan born 1788 at Kintail. He was a dyer but joined the Royal Artillery Nov 1808, stationed at Woolwich where he married. Pensioned out of army 1819 and after some time lived in Castle St Inverness. I don't know his parents' names but his children's names included Kenneth, Farquhar,William, Alexander, Donald, Mary, and Catherine. (Kenneth came here to Aust.)
I thought I had no hope of finding John's parents until I saw on your site that a 1793 census showed only 2 or 3 families at Kintail were not Macraes. Is it possible to access that census? John would have been about 5 then.
Any information will be welcome.Thank you.
