I am a direct descendant of the McRae's of Kintail and my family are mentioned in the Clan McRae book. I am a direct descendant of the "Inverinate" McRaes who then branch out into the Torlysich line through V Farquhar (descendant of the Black McRae's because of the Spanish influence). Down through the generations they have married many a first cousin being either a McRae, McLennan or a McKenzie. They finally settled in and around Armidale, New England NSW in a place called Scots corner because of the number of Scottish families that have intermarried there.

We will be having a reunion in Armidale next April 2002 for all the descendants of my Great Great Great Grandparents John Roy McRae and Mary McLennan (Contin). Marigold and her daughter Baroness Van Linden will be attending the gathering. John Roy McRae's father was Duncan McRae (Donnnache Sealgair) (Duncan the Hunter) 1st Cousin of Christopher (Mhor) McRae (NZ p. 79) m. Margaret Macrae.
