According to the internet and family information, it appears John Richards McKay descends from John McKay and Mary Favell. Mary was the daughter of John Favell (d. 2 Nov 1784), a Londoner who entered the service of the Hudson's Bay Company in 1754, and his Indian wife Titameg. After looking at articles on the internet that deal with my ancestors, it appears some of my ancestors had more than one wife in addition to the native women (married according to the custom of the country). All this research has made me wonder if John Favell had any other wives. Is it well documented and consistent that Mary Favell is daughter of John Favell and Titameg? Is there any other information indicating a more complete name? Is it documented Titameg was an Indian?
