Ministers MAC1

Ewing – List of Ministers: MAC1


 

There are so many “Macs” that this index becomes unwieldy if presented as a unity. So Mac1 deals with names from MacAdam to Mackray. Mac2 deals with MacLachlan to McWatt. Again we have an alphabetical index. Take off the prefix “Mc”, “M’” or “Mac” from the surname you are looking for, and click the appropriate letter below. Then find the name you are looking for in the index at that point.

For example, if you are looking for “Ranald MacDonald”, remove “Mac”and you get “Donald”; click “D” and then click his name in the index provided there.

Ewing’s layout here is difficult to follow. He uses Mac, Mc or M’ as the prefix. In a particular name – say “MacRae” and its variants – he lists all the “MacRae”s in alphabetical order; then he lists all the “McRae”s and “M’Rae”s together in another alphabetical sequence. To check on a person, you really need to look at both these sequences.

Some practical points:

Remember that there is a surname Mac – Intosh, and a surname Mac – kintosh.

“Macloy” is listed under “-C” not under “-L”.

“Makellar” is not a “Mac”.

M’DOUGALL, WILLIAM C.

Born, 1841. Studied in United States of America. Ordained at Plato, Indiana, 1871. He came to Scotland in 1878, and was admitted to the Free Church by the Assembly of 1879. Settled at Coatbridge, West, 1883. On the 19th October, 1899, the Free Presbytery of Hamilton loosed Mr. M’Dougall from his charge and declared it vacant. This action was approved by the Assembly in 1900.


Supplementary Information

William Currie McDougall

Background
He was born on 9th January, 1840, in Glasgow, the son of Alexander McDougall, horn spoon maker, and Agnes Currie. In his court case, mentioned below, he speaks of his cell iron bedstead being “something similar to what he had in his miners’ home at Saltcoats”, Ayrshire. In his poetry book, there is one entitled “A Wayside Sermon” subtitled, “To the Old Pump Well in Raise Street, Saltcoats.” I can find no early connection with Saltcoats – nor, to the best of my knowledge, was Saltcoats a mining town.

Ministry
He served in Coatbridge – West, Lanarkshire.

The poetry book mentioned below makes it plain that he was particularly acquainted with California, USA. There are poems entitled: Lines to the Yosemite, California; Santa Clara; To the memory of Dr T.W. Tilden, Chico, California; A summer Scene, Hollister. One wonders if he served in the American Civil War: there are poems entitled: The Picket in War and The Fatal Bullet. His poems also make it clear that he had returned to Scotland early in 1879: there is a poem entitled The Unveiling of a statue to Livingstone in George Square, Glasgow, on 19th March, 1879. There are also poems on two events later that year: Drumclog, 1679; and The Tay Bridge Disaster.

The details given in the court case when he was imprisoned make it plain that he was loosed from his charge in Coatbridge because of inefficiency. He maintained that it was his opposition to drink that caused him to be put out by those in the church who were not opposed to drink.

He maintained that he could not consent to being excluded from his pulpit because he had been invited to occupy it by his Kirk Session. The civil courts had no right to interfere. The legal authorities maintained that the question as to who should have the use of the buildings was within the civil sphere. When he refused to promise not to preach in Coatbridge again, he was imprisoned for a month in Calton prison in Edinburgh. He was released on 7th March, 1902.

Death
He died in 1920 in Ardrossan, Ayrshire.

Family
There is no sign that he ever married.

M’GILLIVRAY, ALEXANDER GORDON, M.A.

Born, 1814. Son of Rev. D. M’Gillivray, of Lairg. Studied at the Universities, Aberdeen and Edinburgh, intending to follow the medical profession. Was for a time medical officer in the parish of Tongue. He attended the Divinity Hall, partly in Glasgow, and partly in Edinburgh. His father having been obliged to leave Lairg in consequence of the hostile attitude of the proprietor towards the Free Church, the Presbytery in December 1843 ordained Mr. M’Gillivray as missionary minister there. Translated to Mains and Strathmartine, 1845. Married, 1849, Elizabeth R. A. Watson. Translated, 1866, to Roseburn, Edinburgh, where he formed a new Free Church congregation. Became senior minister, 1884. Died, 1889.


Supplementary Information

Background
He was born on 18th December, 1814, the son of Duncan McGillivray, minister, and Jean Gordon. His brother Angus Mackintosh McGillivray was a Free Church minister.

For some family connections, see the tree of John Mackay of Kirtomy.

His father was said to have been a “near relative” of Angus Mackintosh, minister of Tain (Sage, Memorabilia Domestica, p.259). FES, Vol.7, p.72 says Angus Mackintosh was born in Strathdearn in 1763, while Duncan McGillvray, who was born in Strathdearn in 1764, was the son of Elizabeth Mackintosh “of Kyllachie”. As Strathdearn and Kyllachie are both in the parish of Moy and Dalarossie, it is possible that Angus Mackintosh’s father and Duncan McGillivray’s mother were brother and sister.

On the other hand, Sir James Mackintosh (1765-1832) was the son of Captain John Mackintosh of Kyllachie and Marjory McGillivray (www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1790-1820/member/mackintosh-sir-james-1765-1832). And there were other links of Mackintoshs and McGillivrays further back (www.wikitree.com/wiki/McIntosh-1437). So relations between McGillivrays and Mackintoshs may have been more complex.

This is worth looking at – some time.

Education
He was a doctor before studying for the ministry. He obtained a place as a tutor in a gentleman’s family and studied in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Marriage
He married Elizabeth Robina Anderson Watson on 16th August, 1849, in South Leith, Edinburgh. She was born on 13th March, 1825, in Burntisland, Fife, the daughter of Charles Watson, minister, and Robina Elizabeth Anderson.

Ministry
“Alex. G. MacGilivray, Lairg, Sutherlandshire” was a name on the Roll of Probationers adhering to the Free Church. He served in Lairg, Sutherland; Mains and Strathmartine, Angus; and Edinburgh – Roseburn.

Death
He died on 11th May, 1889, in Newington, Edinburgh. His wife died in 1909 in St Andrew, Edinburgh.

Family
They had issue including:

(1) Duncan MacGillivray born on 17th July and baptized on 18th August, 1850, in Mains and Strathmartine, Angus.

(2) Charles Watson MacGillivray born on 12th September and baptized on 19th October, 1851, in Mains and Strathmartine, Angus. He married Frances Ann MacGillivray. He was a distinguished medical doctor: M.D., F.R.C.S.E. He died in 1932 in Haymarket, Edinburgh.

MACINTOSH, ALEXANDER

Born in Inverness-shire, 1842. Studied at the University and New College, Edinburgh. Ordained at Bowmore, Islay, 1874. Married, 1876, Ann J. C. MacTavish. Resigned, 1879, and went to Australia. Died, 1889.


Supplementary Information

Background
Until we have a look at his marriage we cannot be sure who he is – so what follows is somewhat tentative. But we can say that an Alexander Mackintosh died in 1889 in Pahran, Victoria, the son of William and Catherine.

Education
There is no record of him as Alexander MacIntosh enrolling in New College, Edinburgh; but an Alexander Mackintosh enrolled there 1869-73.

Ministry
He served in Bowmore, Isle of Islay, Argyll.

There was an Alexander Mackintosh of the Free Church who arrived in New Zealand in 1879 (PCNZ, Ministers’ Register). He finished his training there and then was ordained in Whangarei, Northland Presbytery, on 18th February, 1880; and resigned on 7th February, 1883. If this is the Alexander MacIntosh mentioned in Ewing, then there are certain problems: for example, his being ordained in New Zealand, when he had been ordained in Scotland. But it is worth keeping in mind this New Zealand information, when trying to trace a man who is quite elusive.

Marriage
Alexander Mackintosh married Annie J. Campbell MacTavish in 1876 in Johnstone, Renfrewshire. It is probable that she was born in Kilarrow, Isle of Islay, Argyll, the daughter of Colin McTavish and Catherine Campbell.

Death
An Annie Mackintosh died in South Yarra, Victoria, in 1890. Her father’s surname was McTavish. South Yarra and Pahran are adjacent areas in what is now Melbourne City.

Family
There was a Catherine Campbell MacIntosh born in 1877 in Kilarrow, Isle of Islay, Argyll. In 1901 she is staying with her Aunt, Margaret McTavish – the daughter of Colin McTavish and Catherine Campbell.

A Catherine Campbell Mackintosh died in 1965 in Haddington, East Lothian, aged 88.

Note
Part of the difficulty in tracing this man is that he didn’t always call himself MacIntosh, but Mackintosh.

Hugh Macintosh, minister of the Free Church, Gartly, to the sacred memory of his loving and beloved wife, Margaret Macintosh, who died at the Manse, full of faith, joy and love, on Saturday, 20 September, 1874, aged 34.”

Supplementary Information

FUFC, p.392

He served in Monikie, Angus.

For some ministerial connections, see the Miller Martin Tree.

Here is an inscription from Monikie graveyard: “In memory of Rev MALCOLM McINTYRE born 16 January 1819 Free Church Minister in this Parish from July 1849 until his death 10 October 1903 also his beloved wife MARY ANN MILLER born 6 September 1829 died 31 July 1862 children MARGARET GRACE born 1853 died 1863 and MILLER MALCOLM born 1862 died 1874 Rev DAVID M McINTYRE DD born 1859 died 1938 they also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him” (www.monikie.org.uk/kirkyard.htm#E02)

Notwithstanding the above, the censuses show Mary Ann Miller or McIntyre to have been born around 1820 in Eassie, Angus. This surely means that she is the daughter of James Miller, minister, who according to FES was born on 6th September, 1819, when the family were in Eassie. This also means that she is buried in the adjacent lair to her sister, Janet Martin Miller, the wife of Alexander Comrie, a Free Church minister.

MACKAY, DONALD ISLAY

Born in Inverness-shire, 1848. Studied at the University and Free Church College, Glasgow. Ordained at Strathfillan, Perthshire, 1876. Removed from his charge, 1888.


Supplementary Information

Background
The 1881 census shows him to have been born about 1840 in Duirinish, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire. He was then living with his sister Effy, who was born there about 1833, and with his niece Mary Gillies, born there about 1863. All this indicates that he was the son of Hugh Mackay, and Euphemia MacDonald, born in Duirinish, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire about 1840.

Education
In 1861 he appears to be a “Normal Student” in Glasgow, that is, he was training to be a teacher.

Ministry
He served in Strathfillan, Perthshire. The Presbytery of Breadalbane began looking into the financial affairs of the congregation at the request of the Synod. An examining committee not only discovered that the congregation was not functioning well but that there was a fama clamosa regarding the minister’s morals, especially in connection with his niece Mary Gillies. The minister was four times cited by the Presbytery to be examined about this matter. It was obvious that he had deserted his charge and he failed to appear. Consequently on 24th October, 1888, he was deposed from the ministry because he had abandoned his charge and failed to appear when cited and when there were grounds for libel against him.

Other
It is probable that thereafter he became a teacher in England and that he died in Manchester South, Lancashire, England, in the 4th quarter of 1928.
The evidence for that is that it was a Donald I. Mackay aged 87 whose death is thus registered – which fits our man well. Moreover, there was a Donald Mackay, teacher, of a similar age in Chorlton, Lancashire, in 1911 and 1901. {The minister had been a “Normal Student” before entering the ministry; and Manchester South district contained a part of Chorlton from 1926).
In 1911 this Donald Mackay is said to have been born in Durness, Inverness-shire. As Durness is actually in Sutherland, this is a mistake: I suggest that the most natural explanation is that he was from Duirinish, Inverness-shire. This seems to me to show fairly conclusively that this man in Lancashire was the minister of Strathfillan.
There is more. He has got a daughter, Edith Mackay, with him in 1901 and 1911. She was born about 1885 in Aberdeenshire. She was a manufacturer of boys’ clothes in 1911. I can find no Edith Mackay of this age born in Aberdeenshire who could be this person. But there was an Edith MacDonald Gillies born in Ellon. Aberdeenshire, on 19th July, 1885. She was the illegitimate child of Mary Gillies, domestic servant.
