My ancestor Hector MacRae (shoemaker/fidler) married Christina McDonald and one of his boys Duncan(blacksmith), is my great, great, great grandfather whose family came to Victoria in 1864. I am wondering where Carndue is, as the family lived there in 1841 census. I now live in brisbane.

Carndue is on the Eastern shore of Lochlong in Kintail, Ross-shire. Log on to for a map. Click big pink dot, then enter Dornie as the place and just above Dornie is Carndue. Three clicks to the West is Reraig where most of Duncan and Julia's children were born.
I took an interest in this family 1. because I live in Reraig and 2, because my 2x gr grandmother Mary Macdonald is a cousin of some degree. Do you know of her parentage? Tina

Is there a street and house number in Carndu for your family in the 1841 or the 1851 census?

My family of McRaes lived in Carndu too in Helen Street. I wonder if there is any connecton?
