Hugh was born to Andrew McLeod (fisherman)and Christina Sutherland abt 1789 in Nigg, according to his Nigg census (1841&51) and Nigg death (1858) records.
I am stuck here, as I cannot find a birth record for him on IGI or Scotlands People, with these parents. Nor can I find a death record for his parents anywhere yet...
Does anyone have any ideas ? With her name being Sutherland , does that suggest that they migrated to this area from elsewhere?? Am I missing something here historically... I dont think Sutherland is a Nigg parish name for that era... not that I have come across anyway.
Andrew McLeod->Hugh McLeod-> Andrew McLeod were all fishermen in Nigg. Hugh married Margaret McLeod, and their son Andrew married Catherine Ross and later Lily MacKenzie . The next generation of my ancesty was Finlay McLeod who left the area , married Isabella Newlands and settled in Rafford, Edinkillie, Morayshire.
Any Help would be appreciated!!
