Title: does anyone have any idea about these connected families?
Posted by: Andrew Lancaster

Hi everyone,

Would anyone know if there were Wilsons, Porters or Fergies (or similar) in the McLea clan home regions?

My best guess right now is that the Livingstones and McClays in the so-called "MacWho" DNA family (http://users.skynet.be/lancaster/MacWho_results.htm) are related to the McPheties mentioned in Perthshire by Thomas McLea in the 18th century (http://www.macleay.cncfamily.com/account_of_mclea.htm). The McClays come from Donegal.

For my background thinking see: http://users.skynet.be/lancaster/Livingstone.htm

The DNA seems to suggest that the Wilson surname was in this family longer than the Fergie(Fergus) surname. I'd even say that the DNA suggests that the Fergie surname probably stems from a Fergus McLea family, like the McPhetie one did apparently did from a Petie MacLea (which surname apparently died out replaced by Livage/Livingstone). The DNA also perhaps hints that the Porters were a bit more closely related to a McLean family than to the MacLeas.

I know I have discussed elements of this before, but I thought I'd this question in a new way. I'd appreciate any advice.

Best Regards
Andrew
