McKays of Huron County Canada and Scotland

Updated November 9, 2000

About Our Family Research

My line of McKays are believed to be from Banffshire, starting with George McKay and Cathrine Murdoch, who had William George McKay b. 1828. He married Agnes Forrest b. 1834 (from Aberdeenshire) and they emigrated to Canada, North Huron County Grey Twsp in the province of Ontario. There they had 8 known children of which the last was my gr grandfather William Vass McKay b. 1871 who married Christena McBeath Forbes b. 1875. They had 5 children (Elmer, Ina, Lindsay,Forrest and my grandfather Leslie McKay). Leslie married Myrtle Ellacott and had 4 children, William, Ronald, Bruce and Myrna. Ronald married my mother, Judy Fitzgerald and had 3 daughters, myself, Dava and Danien and Deanne.

I am specifically looking for more information about George McKay and Catherine Murdoch. I'd like to know where they lived in Scotland as well as birth/death/marriage dates.
