Ministers MAC2

Ewing – List of Ministers: MAC2


 

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 “Hector M’Lean”, remove “M’”and you get “Lean”; click “L” 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”.

He devised and he himself conducted for more than thirty years a scheme of grammar school bursaries, which secured that Gaelic-speaking students had the chance of starting fair with others in the later competition of university life.

Publication.—Columba (Evangelical Succession Lectures; First Series).


Supplementary Information

Background
He was born about 1820, the son of George MacPhail, fisheries officer, and Annie Ross. Although in the censuses it is stated that he was born in Lochbroom, Ross and Cromarty, there is some evidence that he was actually born in Moray, as Ewing states. This is bound up with his father’s alleged murky past – for which see the sources cited below. For some family connections, see the MacPhail Tree.

He enrolled in New College, Edinburgh, 1843-46.

Marriage
He married Annie Badenoch Nicolson on 4th August, 1857, in Glenbervie, Kincardineshire. She was born about 1834 in Edinburgh, the daughter of Robert Badenoch, Esq., of Arthurhouse, and Ann Wilson.

In 1851, her mother, Ann B. Nicolson, was described as a landed proprietrix. Indeed, she was the daughter of James Wilson, minister of Farnell (see FES, Vol.5, p.394) whose wife was the daughter of Sir William Nicolson of Glenbervie.

Ministry
He served in Aberdeen – East; and Edinburgh – Pilrig.

Other
He was an active photographer. He toured Europe in 1847-48 in the company of Sir James Francis Dunlop and some of his photos are in the albums of the Edinburgh Calotype Club. Others appear in a privately published account of a journey to the Holy Land.

Death
He died in 1908 in Prestonpans, East Lothian.

Family
They had issue including:

(1) James Robert Nicolson Macphail born on 29th June, 1858, in Glenbervie, Kincardineshire. He married Nora Helen Gough in 22 March, 1900, in Whitechapel, London, England.
