John Mackay/ Lord Reay
Posted by: Jaclyn Reding (ID *****7524) Date: April 18, 2002 at 15:39:06

The individual I'm researching is John Mackay, 2nd Lord Reay. I show he was born 1612/died 1680.
He was the eldest son of Donald, 1st Lord Reay.

My question is this. I find information that he was married twice. First to Isabel Sinclair (Gordon?) in 1636. They had two children, a son named either Robert or George, and a daughter named Jane (who married a Robert Gordon.)

John's second wife was Barbara Mackay and they had seven children, George, Jane, Donald, Aeneas, Joanna, Anna and Sibylla. It was Donald of this marriage who inherited the Reay title.

I am trying to find out more information about the first marriage and the children, particularly the son (Robert/George) I cannot find any information other than the names and I would like to find out if the son died at an early age and what happened to the first wife, Isabel. If anyone can offer any help, I'd truly appreciate it.
