Title: A Morvern McLea in Rothesay, Bute

Hi all,
 
I think Kyle might find this interesting.
Although it has been suspected that Archibald McLea b. 1778 at Rothesay, Bute of Rothesay, Bute and the other McLeas are connected to McLea remnants of the old Lindsaig, Argyll McLeas I was surprised to find one other Rothesay, Bute oldtimer Daniel McLea born about 1777 at Morvern in Argyll adjacent to the Isle of Lismore. If this is truly a Morven Maclea then it would be only one I have found in the records whose family apparently retained the old name Mclea. It also begs the question where did old Archibald ancestors come from the Linsaig Mcleas and their people or from the Western Argyll Morvern McLeas? Or is old Daniel Mclea just a stray who has nothing to do with old Archibald McLea and the other Rothesay, McLeas? I leave you all with this mystery. 

P.S. Sorry I called him Duncan McLea earlier. I meant to say Daniel McLea. Sorry about that. 

regards, 

Donald
