Early MacKerchers of Breadalbane

The McKerchers from Braemar initially settled in Breadalbane around Loch Tay and Roro in Glen Lyon.

Kenmore - Mains of Kenmore:

The first to appear in records, appear under the Muster Rolls of Sir Robert Campbell 9th Laird of Glenorchy and Balloch at Balloch, Kenmore, Perthshire in 1638.

Port of Loch Tay:

  • Donald McKerrachar, 1 sword, target;
  • Gilchrist McKerrachar, 1 sword, target;
Kenmore - Lawers:

The second appearance in records, appear in the Breadalbane Muniments - papers of Sir Robert Campbell 9th Laird of Glenorchy and Balloch at Balloch, Kenmore, Perthshire on 6 November 1639.

  • Laird of Glenurquhay, Balloch, to Farquhar McAllaster VcKerracher of Dunglass, 6 Nov 1639
  • Writer's nephew, Colin Campbell, son to the laird of Cadell, tells him that recipient has in keeping a bond by goodman of Balledrum for 300 merks payable to said Colin for Thomas Fraser in Duntarkett; asks that the bond be sent to writer by bearer, at said Colin's desire.

Dunglass or Drumglass is a small croft in Lawers on the north shore of Loch Tay. The patronymical meaning of Farquhar's name is thus: Farquhar son of Alexander grandson of Farquhar. It is possible that Alexander is the son of Farquhar - brother to Finlay Mor, or a relation in between.

Fortingall - Roro:

The third appearance in records, appear in the Breadalbane Muniments - miscellaneous papers of the Earl of Breadalbane in 1683.

  • Bond of caution by Donald McPhadrig Glass VcGregor in Tomdavoir in Fernane, Duncan McConochie VcKerracher in Innerinanan in Rora, Patrick McIchruime in Lurgbuy in Lawers, and Donald McIllespeik VcVeir, brother to Patrick Buy McVeir in Tombreck, for Donald Glass McGrigor, prisoner in Finlarig, sentenced to be sent to foreign plantations never to return, by the Earl of Breadalbane, granters `being unwillingthat he [Donald Glass] should be putt toundergoe the said sentance being now an old aged man', 3 March 1683.

Innerinanan or Inverinian is part of Roro in Glen Lyon. The patronymical meaning of Duncan's name is thus: Duncan son of Duncan grandson of Farquhar. It is possible that Duncan's father Duncan is the son of Farquhar - brother to Finlay Mor, or a relation in between.

MacKerchers of 1650

MacKerchers of 1650

The parish records of Kenmore begin around 1640 and combined with the above records, allow for a view of the families around 1650.

Kenmore - Mains of Kenmore:
  • Donald McKercher at Port of Loch Tay, wife Isabell Maxton; Children Catherine 1640, John 1648, Gilchrist 1650, Janet 1655.
  • Gilchrist McKercher at Port of Loch Tay, wife Janet McVealan; Children Margaret 1636, Catherine 1640, John 1643, Duncan 1644, Janet 1649.

  • John McKercher, wife Catherine McPhatrik Glas; Children Margaret 1655, Catherine 1656.

The Fortingall parish records prior to 1750 do not exist, but we have the one reference in the Breadalbane Muniments.

Fortingall - Roro:
  • Duncan McKercher at Inverinian; Children Duncan.
Buchanan:

The Buchanan parish records reveal McKercher records following 1640. The parish is far removed from Breadalbane.

  • Donald McKercher, wife Mary McWilliam - married 1653; Children Catherine 1661.
  • Donald McKercher, wife Janet McFarlane - married 1656.
  • Duncan McKercher, wife Janet McNeill; Children Malcolm 1661.
  • John McKercher or Mceaintallager, wife Margaret Miller; Children Agnes 1655.
  • John McKercher, wife Elizabeth Graham.
  • Malcolm McKercher, wife Marion McFarlane.

It is unclear if these are an unrelated family group, or McKerchers or Farquharsons who went to war in 1645 with Montrose during the Scottish Civil War and settled on his family's estates following.

MacKerchers of the Hearth Tax of 1691-1695

MacKerchers of the Hearth Tax of 1691-1695

The Hearth Tax Rolls of 1691-1695 provides the earliest view of where McKerchers resided immediately prior to 1700. It is a list of the people liable for a tax on hearths providing the names of the head of households in most cases, identifying McKerchers in Kenmore, Weem and a few other places - but absent for Glen Lyon in Fortingall where only a count of heads is present.

Kenmore:

On Earl of Breadalbane estates in Kenmore:

  • Donald McKercher
  • John McKercher
  • Gibert McKercher
  • Donald McArcher - probably McKercher?

On Lady Struan estates in Kenmore:

  • Duncan McKercher
  • Catherine McKercher
Weem:

On estates in Weem:

  • John McKercher, Donald McKercher
  • Farquhar McKercher, William McKercher
  • Duncan Beg McKercher, Finlay Beg McKercher
  • Callum McArcher - probably McKercher?

These McKerchers would have been from the Mains of Comrie, Roro Glen Lyon or possibly Weem proper.

Port of Menteith:

In Port of Menteith:

  • Donald McKercher with Janet Drummond
Gargunnock:

In Gargunnock:

  • James McKercher
Buchanan:

On the Marquis of Montrose estates in Buchanan:

  • Duncan McKercher with Malcolm McFarlane

Here again we see the families of Breadalbane along with the family in Buchanan. Also we see two McKerchers appear in nearby Port of Menteith and further south in Gargunnock.

MacKerchers of the Glenlyon Fencibles 1706

MacKerchers of the Glenlyon Fencibles 1706

The Muster Roll of the Duke of Atholl's Fencible Men, is a listing of the capable men in (western) Glen Lyon in 1706. It provides the residences of McKerchers, filling in the gap left by the lack of detail in the Hearth Tax.

  • John McKercher - Wester Moar
  • John McKercher - Kenknock
  • Finlay McKercher - Kerrowmore
  • Farquhar Mor McKercher - Craigelig
  • Donald McKercher - Ruskich
  • John McKercher - Ruskich
  • Duncan McKercher - Ruskich

The McGregors of Roro had become established in Glen Lyon in the 15th century following the displacement of the Albany Stewarts. They became tenants of the Menzies of Weem. When the McKerchers of Braemar themselves arrived in the area they in turn became early tenants of the McGregors. The McKerchers were held in high regard by the McGregors - whom granted the custom of the first lifting upon the burial of a member of their clan. They became regular custodians or groundskeepers of the estate of Roro and eventually that of Meggernie Castle under the Campbells up to the 19th century.

MacKerchers of 1750

MacKerchers of 1750

After 1750 the parish records are relatively complete for all of the areas that McKerchers reside, providing a view of the families at that time. The American War war of Independence between 1775 and 1783 brought a few McKerchers to the Americas, where some settled in both Canada and the United States.

People

MacKerchers of 1800

MacKerchers in 1800

Leading up to the year 1800 and forward, McKerchers begin to move. Changes made to land management and tenants by the Earl of Breadalbane caused a larger number to move to the lowlands and overseas. Families from Beadalbane would migrate to Kincardine-in-Menteith for new land opportunities as would the families from Port of Menteith, Aberfoyle and Buchanan. They also would start to migrate to the urban centers of Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The War of 1812 brought a number of McKerchers to Canada, with some settling in sponsored Military Settlements in Quebec and Ontario. Following 1820 waves of McKerchers would immigrate abroad to Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
