MacGregor/McGregor from Lochcarron, Contin, Lochbroom
John MacGregor is listed as a Ship Owner residing in Jeantown, Lochcarron parish in the 1841 Scottish census. Living with him is his wife Mary (nee MacGregor from Contin, Rosshire) and sons Duncan (4) and William (1). William is my g grandfather. Prior to John's death c.1847, John and Mary have 2 more sons - John and Donald. Mary's father is Donald McGregor from Lochbroom and mother Ann Grant (Fodderty?). After John's death, Mary married Duncan Matheson of Lochbroom but died about 5 years later in 1868. My g grandfather William emigrated to New Zealand prior to 1873 as it was there that he married Elizabeth McIvor of Shulishader, Lewis.
I am very interested in hearing from anyone who knows anything of these families, particularly the MacGregor side, or who can shed any light on ship owners of Lochcarron in the 1840s or earlier. John and Mary married in Jeantown in 1828 so it is quite possible that there are more children born before Duncan in 1836. Thank you
