I am descended from Charles and Ann Stewart,(McDonald) m.Bracadale 1826, daughter Christina(Chirsty)b.1840(siblings MAry b. 1835, Angus b 1837) Emigrated to Australia 1854 on "Edward Johnston". Chirsty married Hector MCLean Thorburn 1859. Hector was son of John (b, 1798-9, MUll, died 1855 Duirinish)and Caitriona(Catherine McLean)Thorburn(b. 1810-1 Mull,died 1873 Dundee) John was a crofter/farmer Glendale area after his father Samuel who was one of the first shepherds on Skye.They had a family of fourteen.I am hoping to make contact with relatives and hopefully acquire more information. I believe there should be McLeods, Nicolsons,Campbells, McLeans,McKinnons,?McDonalds, Stewarts(Appin)amongst them.Help would be appreciated.
