Difficulties

In FES there are a number of ministers by the name of Bayne, said to be descendants of the Baynes of Tulloch, Dingwall, Ross and Cromarty. The lairds of Tulloch are well known and there are a number of ministers connected with them. The problem is how to fit into the Tulloch tree the other families who claim a connection.

Here p.4, there is a family tree showing the lairdship of Tulloch. There seems to have been a dearth of male heirs, for the lairdship passes from Kenneth, the 6th of Tulloch, through his father’s cousins, to Kenneth’s 2nd cousin. This suggests that the relationship of the ministers in this line to the Tulloch family was fairly remote: otherwise as close male heirs they would have inherited the lairdship. But the evidence is confusing. There are several difficulties.

(1) On the one hand, the above tree says that the nearest male heir to Kenneth Bayne, 6th of Tulloch, in 1719 was his father’s cousin: John, 7th of Tulloch. On the other hand, FES, Vol.7, p.34 refers to Donald Bayne, who is described as a son of Sir Donald Bayne, 5th of Tulloch, who was a minister and who was still alive in 1736. Why wasn’t he first in line before John, 7th of Tulloch? Was he illegitimate? Or is FES wrong? Well, the answer is actually given in FES, Vol.8, p.659 where a correction is made: this man is actually a son of Alexander Bayne, baillie of Dingwall.

(2) Again, on the one hand, FES, Vol.7, p.34 speaks of John Bayne, minister of Dingwall, as the son of John of the Tulloch family. Genealogical manuscript notes in the National Records of Scotland, as well as written sources mentioned there, refer to him as son of John, the Laird of Tulloch. On the other hand, John the 7th Laird of Tulloch is said to have had no issue; and if he was in fact the father of the minister, why didn’t the minister succeed to the title? MacKinnon informs us that according to his descendants, John Bayne, minister of Dingwall, was the son of John, 7th of Tulloch. And he adds: “it is not known if [John, 7th of Tulloch] was married or not”. So once again an illegitimacy is a possible explanation of the difficulty. But you can’t invoke illegitimacies to explain every genealogical difficulty.

(3) There are two ministers, brothers, Ronald and Kenneth Bayne. Ronald was born in 1755 and Kenneth in 1767. They were both said to have been from the Tulloch family: see here. They are the sons of “John Bayne, Dingwall”. We are therefore looking for a John Bayne, Dingwall, of an appropriate age to have been the father of these men.

The obvious candidate is John Bayne, who was born in 1720, according to FES, Vol.7, p.34, the son of John Bayne, the minister. This is an attractive solution, but it seems strange to me that a tradition of a distant relationship with the Tulloch family has survived, but the fact: if it is a fact: that their grand-father was a minister has not survived.

The situation is complicated by the fact that Ronald Bayne is also referred to as “of Ardmeanach” The question is: what does “Ardmeanach” mean? It was an old name for the whole of the Black Isle area of Ross and Cromarty; and it refers also to an area in Rosemarkie Parish there. But I can’t find any reference so far to any “laird of Ardmeanach”.

There is another John Bayne of this family of the right age to have been the father of these men. As indicated in the Bayne Tree, there was a John Bayne born to Ronald Bayne, 3rd of Knockbain and baptised in Dingwall in 1684. He had a son, also John Bayne, who is said to have married Helen MacRae (see below). Could he have been the father of the ministers? That is entirely speculative: but it does indicate the problem that there are men who claimed to be of Tulloch stock: and we just don’t know enough to be able to fit them in for any certainty.

But if anyone knows what “of Ardmeanach” means, it would be a help.

(4) The view which MacKinnon propounds, following his sources, that John, son of John Bayne of Knockbain, married Helen MacRae does not seem credible. Helen’s father married in 1611; when Helen was born we don’t know. But it is not credible that she married a man whose father was born in 1684. MacKinnon’s sources were: Highland Papers, 1, 228; and the History of the Clan MacRae, p.68.

This needs more research, but here are the ministerial ramifications of the family as I have them at the moment.

A.1.1.1.1.1.1.3. Donald Bayne (d.>1736), minister of Dingwall, Ross and Cromarty (FES, Vol.7, p.34) is said to have been a son of Sir Donald Bayne, 5th of Tulloch, but this is not likely and one source places him elsewhere: see A.1.1.1.2.1. John Bayne, 2nd of Pitcairlie; and FES, Vol.8, p.659 corrects the statement that he is son of Sir Donald Bayne and makes his the son of Alexander Bayne, baillie of DIngwall.

A.1.1.1.1.1.1.4. Duncan John Bayne was the son of Sir Donald Bayne, 5th of Tulloch.

A.1.1.1.1.1.1.4.1. Margaret Bayne was the daughter of Duncan John Bayne. She married George Mackenzie, 2nd of Allangrange. See under B.1.1.1.1.1.1. William Robertson 6th of Kindeace.

A.1.1.1.1.2. Roderick Bayne, “Tutor of Tulloch” (c.1620-c.1686), was the son of John Bayne, 4th of Tulloch.

A.1.1.1.1.2.1. John Bayne, 7th of Tulloch (c.1661-1731), was the son of Roderick Bayne, the Tutor. He was said to have died without issue, but some authorities say otherwise.

A.1.1.1.1.2.1.1. John Bayne (c.1690-1737), minister of Dingwall, Ross and Cromarty: FES, Vol.7, p.34, was the son of John Bayne, Dingwall: some say this was the Laird of Tulloch: John Bayne, 7th of Tulloch.

A.1.1.1.1.2.1.1.1. John Bayne (b.1720) was the son of John Bayne, minister of Dingwall. It is possible: but not at all probable: that he was the father of Ronald and Kenneth Bayne, ministers, who claimed kinship with Tulloch.

A.1.1.1.1.2.1.1.2. Christian Bayne (d.1767) was the daughter of John Bayne, minister of Dingwall. She married B:1.1.2.3.2. Gilbert Robertson, minister of Kincardine, Ross and Cromarty.

A.1.1.1.1.2.1.1.3. Jane (or Jean) Bayne married C.1.1.1.1.1.1. William Douglas.

A.1.1.1.2. Donald Bayne, 1st of Pitcairlie, Fife, (d.1645) was the son of Duncan Bayne, 3rd of Tulloch.

A.1.1.1.2.1. John Bayne, 2nd of Pitcairlie (1620-1681), was the son of Donald Bayne, 1st of Pitcairlie. From him, according to MacKinnon, is descended Donald Bayne, named as minister of Dingwall, whom FES says is the son of A.1.1.1.1.1.1. Sir Donald Bayne, 5th of Tulloch. For an alternative view about John Bayne of Pitcairlie, see Cooper, C., John Bayne of Pitcairlie, Writer to the Signet.

A.1.1.1.3. Ronald Bayne, 1st of Knockbain (c.1597-c.1646), Ross and Cromarty, was the son of Duncan Bayne, 3rd of Tulloch. He married Janet Howieson (Houston), daughter of Thomas Howieson (Houston), minister of Inverness: FES, Vol.6, p.455: though this source does not mention Janet and we depend on MacKinnon here. This man’s daughter Elspeth married B:1. William Robertson, 1st of Kindeace.

A.1.1.1.3.1. Alexander Bayne, 2nd of Knockbain, (d. prior to 1673) was the son of Ronald Bayne, 1st of Knockbain. He married Agnes Mackenzie, daughter of Colin Mackenzie, 1st of Kincraig, Ross and Cromarty. She later married John MacRae (1614-1673), minister of Dingwall: FES, Vol.7, p.33. This John MacRae was the son of Farquhar MacRae, minister of Kintail, Ross and Cromarty: FES, Vol.7, p.152; and brother of Donald MacRae, also minister of Kintail; of Isobel MacRae who married William Mackenzie, son of John Mackenzie, minister of Lochbroom, Ross and Cromarty: FES, Vol.7, p.156; and of Helen MacRae, who is said to have married A.1.1.1.3.1.2.1.1. John Bayne.

A.1.1.1.3.1.1. Janet Bayne was the daughter of Alexander Bayne, 2nd of Knockbain. She married John Macrae. Minister of Dingwall: FES, Vol.7, p.33. This John MacRae was the son of Alexander MacRae of Inverinate, Ross and Cromarty, and therefore a nephew of the John MacRae, his predecessor in Dingwall, who also married into the Bayne family.

A.1.1.1.3.1.1.1. Alexander MacRae was the son of John MacRae, Dingwall. He became a Roman Catholic priest.

A.1.1.1.3.1.2. Ronald Bayne, 3rd of Knockbain, (d. prior to 1721) was the son of Alexander Bayne, 2nd of Knockbain.

A.1.1.1.3.1.2.1. John Bayne (baptised Dingwall in 1684) was a son of Ronald Bayne, 3rd of Knockbain.

A.1.1.1.3.1.2.1.1. John Bayne was said to be the son of John Bayne above. He was said to have married Helen MacRae. See above under “Difficulties”.

A.1.1.1.3.1.3. Isobel Bayne was the daughter of Alexander Bayne of Knockbain. In 1643, she married Roderick Mackenzie, minister of Gairloch, Ross and Cromarty: FES, Vol.7, p.146. He was the son of Roderick Mackenzie of Knockbaxter and Giles Bayne. See below under A.1.1.2. Aegidia Bayne.

A.1.1.1.4. Alexander Bayne, 1st of Tarradale, Ross and Cromarty (d.1669), was the son of Duncan Bayne, 3rd of Tulloch.

A.1.1.1.4.1. Duncan Bayne, 2nd of Tarradale, (d. prior ro 1701) was the son of Alexander, 1st of Tarradale, Ross and Cromarty. He married Jean Mackenzie, the daughter of Rev. John Mackenzie, son of John Roy Mackenzie, 4th of Gairloch. We have not yet identified who this minister was: perhaps he was only a licentiate and never minister of a charge.

A.1.1.1.5. Alexander Bayne (d. prior to 1624) was the son of Duncan Bayne, 3rd of Tulloch. He was progenitor of the Baynes of Wester Logie.

A.1.1.1.5.1. Duncan Bayne (died in the reign of Charles II) was the son of Alexander Bayne of Wester Logie. He was known as the 2nd of Wester Logie or of Delny, Ross and Cromarty.

A.1.1.1.5.1.1. Agnes Bayne was the daughter of Duncan Bayne, 2nd of Delny. She married Colin Mackenzie, 2nd of Kincraig, Ross and Cromarty.

A.1.1.1.5.1.1.1. Lilias Mackenzie was the daughter of Colin Mackenzie, 2nd of Kincraig.
The History of the Mackenzies, under the Mackenzies of Ardross, says that William Mackenzie, the minister of Rosskeen, had (1) a son Colin, whose son Alexander married this lady; (2) had two daughters who married Allan Clark (or Alan Clerk), minister of Glenelg, Inverness-shire, and Duncan MacCulloch, minister of Glenurquhart, Inverness-shire. FES, Vol.7, p.149 and FES, Vol.6, p.481 give a different story: they married sisters of William Mackenzie.
