Are you from New Zealand? I have been trying to get an email address for the Geoffrey Macrea that was mentioned in the NBR re property in Argentina. I am a NZer living in the UK and have an interest in Argentina. I also have Macrae in my fathers side of the family who lived in Southland. It would be ironic if there was a link. Please reply to me at

Hi ,
My Name is Emerson Raiol, I live in Brasilia, Brazil. Some months ago I find out the Coat of Arms of the Raiol Family and there says that the name Raiol comes from MacRae. I dont know how the MacRaes came to Brazil, but it is not a very common Family Name here, just a few of us, maybe more than 2.000 ,
See you all Mates,

In response to Mr. Emerson Raiol's comment,I have an ancestor called Mr. William Macrae that was a banker that came from the Highlands to Porto Alegre, Brasil, to marry a Brazilian from the Aveline family. Mr. William died in 1862. He was 39 years old.
Best regards,

My grandmother Anne McCrea was the only child of Scottish immigrants who owned a ranch in the South of Chile. I am currently researching if thereare other McCraes in Chile, which is possibly since many scots were lured to patagonia wit grants of land, as they were considered experts in sheep farming in the 1900Reply posted by : Pedro Barros

In addition to Angela's comment, my great-great-grandmother Elizabeth Macrae de Freitas' father was William Macrae. Prior to living in Porto Alegre, he lived in Rio Grande, Brazil. It would be truly interesting to know more about William Macrae, as well as understand whether other family members accompanied him to Brazil.
