Dear All:

Please start a separate sub-thread for each Clan ancestor.

The thread on this board (and the mailing list) is intended for
comments, hints on how to locate, and discussions
on those distant ancestors ( sometimes brick walls) that are
very hard to locate. Anyone with knowledge of the
Clan Ancestors or searching for ancestors and especially
the Clan Genealogist are especially encouraged to post
their finding on the Clan ancestors.

Please do not use this board for merely looking for
recent descendants. That function is better in the
Surname message boards and mailing lists.

Use the standard procedure in the subject header of
inserting your family ancestor information in the following format
NAME > location > dates

According to my information Robert Colquhoun was born in Dunbarton, Scotland and was married in Corkagh, Ireland in 1641 to Katherine McAuseland. He is the first Colquhoun in my lineage to leave Scotland. I know general information about why a Scot would relocate to Ireland around this time, but I am looking for more detailed information about Robert and why he might have left.
