Flora Macinnes

Title: Flora Macinnes
Posted by: Jackie Hill on 31-08-2011

Discussion: I am currently researching my family history. My grandmother's grandmother and grandfather - were married in 1868 in Glasgow - Flora Macinnes to Donald McNee- they then moved to Liverpool around 1870 to 1874. Somebody has looked on the Scottish census for 1861 and found Flora Macinnes- (daughter of Donald and Marion?) born around 1846- and I was wondering how I could find further details - thank you so much

Apologies, I was being too strict in my spelling when searching scotland's people. Your Flora McInnes may be in the 1861 Census as "Flora McInnis" in Boisdale, South Uist. I hope this is some help.

Your great great grandparents married on 31 Dec 1868 in Milton, Glasgow. On the website the marriage is included in the records for 1869.

The names are given as Donald McNee and Floria McAnnies. A copy of the wedding certificate can be viewed online (£7 for 30 credits and this would use up 6 credits. This would give the details of Flora's mother and father. The Uist Census for 1861 shows only one Flora MacInnes in the age range 13-17 (none in Boisdale and one in Howmore). This Flora indeed had parents Donald MacInnes, and Marion (nee MacEachan) and they lived at 94 Bualadubh, but this seems unlikely to be the Flora you are looking for if Bill Lawson's "Croft History, Isle Of South Uist , Volume 2" is correct as she is listed as having died, unmarried in 1915. Bill gives the year of birth as 1844 and this is presumably computed from the year of her death.
