Generation: 1

  1. 1.  John Cameron was born in ca 1790 in Blarachaorin; was christened on 17 Jan 1790 in Kilmallie (son of Angus Cameron and Isabella Cameron); died on 30 Jun 1881 in Beaufort, Glen Innes.

    Other Events:

    • Immigration ship: Blonde
    • Immigration: 27 Dec 1849, Sydney

    Notes:

    Of Trislaig, Ardgour. He was a carpenter, said to be involved in boat building on Loch Eil, son of Angus and Isabella.

    Migrated with his family on "Blonde", arriving Sydney 27 Dec 1849 as shepherd, "aged 50", and settled in New England.

    YDNA testing has shown that he descends from MacMartin Camerons, specifically from the Camerons of Kinlochleven and very likely from an early branch of that family, the Camerons of Blarachaorin. This backs up the documented finding of his baptism in Kilmallie 17 Jan 1790 "son of Angus Cameron and Isabel Cameron in Blarchorn".

    A descent is claimed by some family members from Cameron of Fassifern. Callart descent has also been suggested. Either is possible through a female line.
