Cathrine SINCLAIR1

(1818 - 1862)
Father*Duncan SINCLAIR2,1
Mother*Margaret (Peggy) MACCOLL2,1
Cathrine SINCLAIR was born in Barcaldine, Ardchattan, Argyllshire, on 25 January 1818.1 and was baptised on 27 January 1818 in Barcaldine.1

Marriage banns for Cathrine and Dugald McCOLL were published on 14 December 1845 in Inverkip, Renfrewshire. Banns were also published on the 21 Dec, but it is not clear that these are for this couple - the location seems totally out of place.3

She married Dugald McCOLL, son of Hugh McCOLL and Mary McCOLL, in Connel, Ardchattan, Argyllshire, in 1846. Note that a marriage at Connel conflicts with the documented banns in Inverkip, Renfrew, but is more likely.4

She was listed in the 1851 census in Barvulin, Ardchattan, Argyllshire, with her husband Dugald; he was a crofter of 3 acres. Their children John, Duncan and Hugh were listed as living with them.5

She was listed in the 1861 census in Barvulin, Ardchattan, Argyllshire, with her husband Dugald; he was a farmer of 18 acres and their house had 3 rooms with windows. Their children John, Duncan, Hugh, Margaret, Jean and Dugald were listed as living with them.6

Cathrine died on 17 May 1862 in Barvulin, Ardchattan, Argyllshire, at age 44 of 'supposed inflammation'. The informant was her husband Dugald.7,2 She was buried at the Achnaba in Ardchattan Church.7
