Re: Alexander & Farquhar McRae to NSW, Australia

In Reply to: Alexander & Farquhar McRae to NSW, Australia by Margaret Duffus of 391

Farquhar McRae 1801
I am married to a Thomas Anthony McRae who is a descendent of Farquhar McRae.

Sister Clare McRae has put together an Australian family history of his descendents.

In summary, Farquhar and Barbara McLennon's children were:
John McRae born 1836 Scotland d.1906
Ewen McRae b.1838 Liverpool, NSW d.1921
Mary Isabella b.1839 d.1917
Christopher b.1841
Alexander b.1843 d.1884
Farquhar b.1846 d.1912
Christiana b.1847 d.1883
Christopher b.1850 d.1926
Catherine b.1851 d.1870
Jennette b.1852 d.1854

My husband's great grandfather is Christopher who married an Elinor Noble on 29 Oct 1878.

He was the father of John Frederik Leonard McRae, b.1885, who married an Elizabeth Maloney on 28 May 1913.

His son,Leonard Joseph McRae, b.1926, is my husband's father.

I was wondering what your connection to the McRae's is. Also, do you know anything about Farquhar's parentage? Apart from being born in Kintail, Rosshire and the first name of his parents being John and Mary, I know nothing. Any advice about how to go about finding out would be appreciated.

An intriguing fact is that the descendents of Farquhar McRae are catholic. I would be interested in finding out whether the family was catholic in Scotland or converted in Australia. Do you know if Alexander was catholic?
