Biographical history

Allan MacDonald (1776-1836) emigrated with his wife and children from Kilmuir, Skye, to Orwell, Prince Edward Island, in 1829.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of letters of recommendation for Allan MacDonald and letters to him from Rev. Robert MacGregor and his son Alexander from Kilmuir, Scotland in the 1830s. The latter contain news of family and friends and touch on the current state of affairs on Lord MacDonald's estate in Skye. The fonds also contains a petition from Allan MacDonald requesting land in Lot 55 for himself and also for land on behalf of the settlers there for land for a Church of Scotland meeting house and burying ground. A final letter is from Charles MacDonald, Allan's son, to his fiancee Tinet MacDonald, daughter of Lieutenant-Governor A. A. MacDonald, written from Ottawa in 1861.
