I am trying to master where to comment and cut myself off before sending. There are so many sidelines of my extended family on Skye and Raasay etc. I'm pretty sure this is one of them. I would dearly love to have contact with anyone who wishes to contact me.
Regards and many many thanks for doing this marvelous work.

Hi Jan, My grt grandmother was Christy Matheson who married Donald Stewart and lived at Braes, Dtarting Peinchrran, Gedintailor and Balmeanach.The Stewart's were from Peinchorran and I can trace them there back to 1700's. Donald son of James and Marion Stewart and Marion was the daughter of John Stewart and Flora Nicholson. Christy was the daughter of Ronald Mathseson and Anne MacKinnon and they originally lived at Tormichaig but were thrown off their croft then settling at Balmeanach, Braes. Ronalds parents were Dugald Matheson and Jane MacDonald. I do have a list of Ronald's children and I do know one of the boys changed Matheson by adding an"i". 1851 census Tormichaig, Ronald 62yrs, Ann 40yrs, Lexy 20 yrs, Donald 18 yrs, Archy 16 yrs, Christy (Chirsty)11 yrs, Angus 5 yrs, Jane 9mnths.If any of these match yours please contact me and I can give you more info. I live in NZ and have visited Skye September this year. Cheers Michelle Jackson
