Title: MacLeas in Argyll, 18th Century
Posted by: Kyle MacLea
Date: 28 March 2007

Donald had asked in one of the Tartan threads:

"When doing research on your MacLeas have you found any 18th century MacLea records from MacLeas living in Argyll Parishes that closely border Bute?"

This is a great question!

I haven't closely looked at Macleas from Argyll near Bute specifically.

I have been in correspondence with the MacLeas (they say Mack-LAY in comparison to my Mack-LEEs) of Baltimore, Maryland.  They descend from MacLeas of Greenock, which is not the closest place to Bute, but is reasonably close.  I have not yet found a connection, though I am hoping to get one of that family to test their DNA with the DNA project to establish or disprove paternal line relatedness.

But your question does force me to think about the closer locales to Bute and whether McLeas inhabited (or indeed, inhabit) those lands.

I have not found any still on Bute, but the population is very low, and was declining already in the 1800s... for McLeas too!  But I haven't looked nearby...

Maybe David can have a look at the records he is collecting and give me a quick look for places close to Bute?

Not sure how to approach the problem...
