red mail William Ramsay, New Zealand farmer
Looking for information on William Ramsay, born abt 1846 at Ardclach near Nairn. His father was Alexander Ramsay (b abt 1826 at Boleskine) and his mother was Ann Ramsay (nee MacDonald b abt 1825 at Kilmorak). The Ramsay family were farmers or crofters and they lived in the Nairn area until at least 1861. By 1871 the family had moved to Tain, but William had disappeared from the census records. It seems that he emigrated to New Zealand and was a successful farmer by 1895. Does anyone have any further information about William Ramsay - especially the details of his emigration? Many thanks in advance, Jim
red mail Mathieson, Clark, Burns, Everett, McCaluum
Looking for relatives of my father. My father, Albert Alexander Mathieson was born on 11/12/33 in Nairn. His mother was Barbara Merchant Mathieson, b 1911, father Herbert Clark, b 1912. Annabel Clark was a witness at their wedding (she was from Nth Berbeston?? Glasgow). Barbara's parents were Donald and Majorie Mathieson (from Dundee - Donald was a shepherd). Dad was adopted by Charles and Agnes Everett when he was small - they changed his name to William Alexander Everett. Barbara and Herbert gave birth to a daughter, Barbara Isabella Burns Clark (or Mathieson)on 27/12/40 and later a son called Walter in 1946 (although Walter's father is named as Walter McCallum). Dad's family also has some links to Saltcoats and Inverness. We now live in New Zealand and would dearly love to know if any of Dad's family are still living. They may not know about him. Linda
