John McDonald/Janet Grant were married Apr 1829 in Inverness. They had six children that we know of - Elizabeth(1830); William(1832); Isabella(1834); Alexander(1835); Janet(1836); Ann(1840). John was a Tenant in Easter Auchnagallen, not far from Grantown-on-Spey and all the children were born there. Janet came from Lynbreck, Abernethy, her parents being John & Janet Grant. John's parents are unknown.
In 1841 John sailed on the Whitby to NZ, to help settle Nelson with the NZ Company. His wife Janet, and William, followed in the Lloyds arriving in Nelson in Feb 1842. Am also trying to find out what happened to the other children. Is there anyone out there who maybe related via the other children? Were the clearances still happening then, or was there a fire or some other tragedy at the time which could've kill them? Many thanks from downunder in Auck, NZ.
