In Reply to: I'm a Patience born in Avoch by Derek Patience of 75

Hi Derek,

My maternal gggrandfather was Donald PATIENCE b: Abt. 20 Feb 1822/21 Avoch, Ross-shire, Scotland who came with his young family to Oxford Co., Ontario, Canada in about May 1848.

I posted more about my PATIENCE ancestors on the and PATIENCE Message Board (MB) back on 19 Nov 2003 as follows:

MB Subject: John "Lad" Patience and Mary (Elizabeth) MacIntosh Married on 29 Oct 1818 Seatown, Scotland
Date: 19 Nov 2003
Ref. URL:

Surnames: More, Reid, Patience, MacIntosh, Brown, Walker, Barber, Groom, McCrimmon, Garner, Silverthorn

I am searching for more information about some of my ancestors (gggggrandparents): Joseph "Gow" Macintosh or MacIntosh from Seatown, Scotland and his daughter Mary (Elizabeth) MacIntosh who married John Patience (nicknamed Lad), a "fisher" on 29 Oct 1818 in Seatown, Scotland.

Where is Seatown, Scotland located on a map?

One of John Patience and Mary Elizabeth MacIntosh sons was my (gggrandfather) Donald Patience (b: abt. 20 Feb 1822/21 Avoch, Scotland c: 23 Feb 1822 m: 28 Feb 1845 Avoch, Scotland d: 12 April 1913 Ingersoll, Oxford Cty, Ontario, Canada) and his wife was Catharine Reid More (records variously spelled her name Catharine, Katherine or Catherine).
Born on 13 May, 1821 in Avoch and the daughter of John More (Junior), a wright (carpenter) in Milnhill, and Katherine (Reid) More, she was the third of 7 children.

Donald Patience and Catharine Reid More's children were as follows:
John Patience (1846 - 1930) b: Avoch, Scotland He was my ggrandfather.
Mary Patience (1848 1919) b: Avoch, Scotland
Donald Patience (1854 - 1925) b: Thamesford, Ontario, Canada
Catharine Reid Patience-Bartindale (1857 - 1928) b: Thamesford, Ontario, Canada
Colin Reid (CR) Patience (1859 - 1932) b: Thamesford, Ontario, Canada
Christine Patience-Snell (1866 - 1897) b: Thamesford, Ontario, Canada

Catharine Reid's mother Katherine Reid was christened on 10 September, 1789, the daughter of Colin Reid, a carpenter in Milnhill and her mother Christian Reid (meaning redhead).
She married John More (b: 1800 d: 1879) on 19 October, 1816 in Avoch, Scotland.
She died 6 Jul 1849 near Thamesford, Ontario, Canada and was buried there in St. Andrews (Church) Cemetery with her husband John More and their oldest daughter Christian (Christie) b: 26 Jan 1817 c: 6 Feb 1817 d: 6 Dec 1874.

The children of Colin Reid and Christian Reid are as follows:
Katherine Reid c: 10 Sept 1789 m: 19 Oct 1816 to John More in Avoch, Scotland d: 6 Jul 1849 near Thamesford, Ontario, Canada
James Reid c: 21 Jul 1798
Colin Reid c: 21 Apr 1804
Charles Reid c: 2 Oct 1806

The children of Katharine Reid More and John More are as follows:
Christian (Christie) More b: 26 Jan 1817 Scotland c: 6 Feb 1817 d: 6 Dec 1874 near Thamesford, Ontario, Canada
Margaret Elizabeth More b: 3 Jan 1819 Scotland c: 15 Jan 1819
Catharine More b: 13 May 1821 Avoch, Scotland c: 15 May 1821 m: 28 Feb 1845 to Donald Patience Avoch, Scotland d: 28 Nov 1896 East Nissouri Twp, Oxford Cty, Ontario, Canada bd: Ingersoll Rural Cemetery, Oxford Cty, Ingersoll, Ontario
John More b: 30 Oct 1823 Scotland c: 7 Nov 1823 d: Manitoba, Canada
Janet More b: 12 Jan 1828 Scotland c: 1 Feb 1828
Colin More b: 22 Jul 1830 Scotland c: 22 Jul 1830
David Donald More b: 12 Jan 1834 Scotland c: 10 Feb 1834 m: 21 Nov. 1850 Canada d: 10 Jan 1908 Manitoba, Canada

Later in about May 1848 Donald and Catharine Reid More with 2 small chidren and her parents (John More & Katherine Reid) left Avoch, Scotland and sailed to Canada
and settled together near Embro and Thamesford (formerly named St. Andrews), Oxford County, Ontario.

Does anybody out there know anything about the Family History of the MacIntosh, More, Patience and Reid families from the Milnhill or Millhill, Caithness; Sutherland; Avoch, Ross and Cromarty; Inverness areas of Scotland and Seatown, Scotland?

Derek, thank you for sharing your knowledge about the village of AVOCH with us here and I was wondering if your PATIENCE family might be related to mine as mentioned above since my Donald PATIENCE probably had some siblings as well ??

Here is a link to a passage written by James Patience about the PATIENCE families of Avoch that I thought that you might find as interesting as I did.
