Title: McOnLea as an early form of McLea
Posted by: Kyle MacLea
Date: 25 October 2006

Dear Forum,

Back in March, I sent out info on the McLeas from the Parish Records of Rothesay, Bute, to the Forum:

http://www.clanmclea.co.uk/forum/Show-Message.Asp?ID=1134 

When I did that, Rob was curious if the early records actually used the form "McOnLea" (with all three capitals or something similar) as I had written.  I had thought at that time that that was the case and had written so, but I hadn't had a chance to go and scan the pages to show him.

Today, I copied the the first instances of McLeas in the Rothesay records (four births in 1693, 1694, and 1695, when the book begins in 1691).  The first McLea is called "McLea" but the next two are called McOnLea (or something like Mc'onLea).

For those who are curious, I scanned those in, and you can see them here.

Hope this is helpful.
