I am seeking any information on and to find any descendants of the following family. What I have has been found in the 1861 Scottish Census and from what has been passed down through our family.

Details from the 1861 census where the family was living in the parish of Kirkhill in the county of Inverness:

Alexander McRae born 1814 in Kintail Ross Shire
was working as a shepherd.

Isabella McRae born 1814 in Kintail Ross Shire was listed as his wife.

Children are:

Catherine aged 18 born in Kintail is working as a domestic servant

Farquhar aged 13 is listed as a herd boy

Isabella aged 11 is a scholar

John aged 7 is a scholar

Christy aged 4


MISSING from the 1861 census is Duncan McRae who was born in 1845 and would have been 16 years of age. He is probably working elsewhere.

Duncan moved to Edinburgh where he worked as a railway brakesman. He married Jane Clark Stewart and had two children: Alexander and Mary.

Farquhar had a son John - we think- John was living in Edinburgh in 1920s.

The maiden name of Isabella senior, we think was also Macrae but spelt in a different form to Alexander's.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Ann
