dear john,
perhaps we have a connection. my MACSWANS as far back as i have gotten were on Skye, Uig, parish of Duirunish in a village called Husabost around 1780 until at least the 1881 census. Angus MacSwan (crofter) my g-g-g grandfather

Malcolm " (crofter/fisherman) g-g "

John " (merchant seaman) g-"

William John "
Malcolm Macswan m. Marion MacDermid b. around 1807 (daughter of Angus MacDermid and Christina Martin)

Malcolm & Marion's children were: Angus(1832)


John (1837)

Mary (1840)

Swain (1843)

Christy (1845)

Mary? another

perhaps due to death of

of the first mary.

of these children:

John m. Marion MacDonald 9 dec 1870

glasgow. child William John b. 14feb 1872

Margaret m. Laughlin MacLean

child Marion MacLean b. 25 aug 1866

if you think we have a connection, i'd love to hear from you. also now, i understand there are at least 4 families of MacSwans still on Skye. Good Hunting, Patricia J. Dick
