    I am researching my husbands family and wonder if any one else is doing the same family. Duncan Campbell & Janet McNaughton had 7 children, John b.1778 Duncan b.1781 John b.1782 Donald b.1785 Patrick b.1788 William b.1790 Janet 1794 all born at Carwhin. Killin. My hushand is descended from the second John b. 1782. Can anyone tell me where Carwhin is located as I can’t find it on any map.

    Greetings Marion,

    I found this while tumbling around the net for Loch Tay and vicinity looking for Campbells (mine from Gelnlyon) and McPhails. The link is where I found it.

    Cheers,

    Don

    Hugh Robertson (1791-1869), son of a John Robertson and Catherine McEwen (1737-???) of Breadalbane, Scotland. He married Christina McDonald (1789-1870). Hugh Robertson was born in Breadalbane, Scotland … on the north shore of Loch Tay in an area known as Carwhin at the foot of Mount Lawers. He was well educated (a graduate of Sterling Academy) and before emigrating to Upper Canada in 1816 was a factor on the Drummond Estate at Strathallan. He took up a land grant on Conc-7/Lot-15(E), Drummond Township, Lanark County, Ontario (at Drummond Center). Hugh Robetson was 74 years of age when he received this letter, hence so many deaths of friends and relatives.

    Hello Don,

    My grandmother on my fathers side was Elizabeth McCall b 1872 Trinity Gask d 1975 here in Vancouver BC. She was one of 5 siblings born and raised on the Drummond Colquhalzie estate at Strathallan, where her father and grandfather were estate overseers, both were James McCalls b1837 Muthill and aprox 1803 Killin. They would have come south to the area by 1840 during the Breadalbane clearances. The elder James McCall from Killin was the son of a flaxdresser named James ‘McDonald or McCall’ and Isabell Campbell, who married Jan 26 1793.
    Unconfirmed as yet, but possibly James McDonald and Mary Cambell were his parents, m aprox 1770.

    Previous to 1800 McCall was a sept of the McDonald clan in this area…..births and marriages are recorded as McDonald and deaths of the same individuals are listed as McCall.

    Interested in any information on the Strathallan area. During the time this family was living at Colquhalzie, the Hepburns, who I believe were cousins of the Drummonds, were in residence at the estate. Also looking for connections for Campbell, McCall or McDonald in the Killin area.

    Regards, Patricia

    I have among some old papers the inventory for the sale of the effects of the “late Revd, John Campbell Minister of Killin” It is unfortunately undated but running to some three pages gives an interesting insight into his domestic arrangements ranging from pigs “pair young pigs” valued at two pounds to “four posted bed stead and curtains” at one pound fifteen shillings. The auctioneer was my great grandfather William Walker and the realised total £263-15-0d and I would guess dated from about 1850…any connection? @susand 915 wrote:

    Nancy I had a quick look through this site and there is info on the family names from a couple of people already ,my family origins were Glen Lochay- a neighbouring glen to Glen Lyon,(my grandfather lived there in Tullich) like one of the other members!could we be related? I can remember two old maiden? aunts , also Campbells who lived in lyons villas, Killin in the 1960’s, called Chrissie and Katie,there’s also a good history info section on the KWS with general info. As you can see I no longer live in Killin , but am far North in the Shetland Islands.
