Hi, I'm looking for any information on a William Mckay(and decendants) who immigrated from scotland to mauritius to work in the sugar cane industry - sometime in the late 1700 0r 1800s. My grandfather was a James Mckay who(we believe) was born in mauritius then went to lisbon portugal, with his parents before returning to mauritius at age 18. We understand that his father was also a william mckay and was the harbour master in or around lisbon during the middle to late 1800's. We are not sure of any further timeframe as apparently the men in this line appeared to have had their children at middle age or older including my grandfather.
If this sounds coherent and/or familiar to anyone, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you...thanks
