Re: Unsure what surname should be - listed as Nciliwie

Thank you for that information Elwyn, it is helpful and frustrating at the same time. I am glad the information I have through 1670 is solid, it is going to be more difficult from this point on.
I have been using a combination of records with christening records proving most helpful. I've also used what I can find of where the families lived then moved after marriage. Any suggestions on what else I should use is appreciated!

Re: Unsure what surname should be - listed as Nciliwie

Could the surname be McIllwee or some similar spelling to that. McIllwee is still a Scottish surname.
I can see the birth for Donald McNaughton in Perthshire in 1694 on Family Search and they spell it NcIliwie. This will be a transcript from the Old Parish Register which is of course a hand written document from 1694. The OPR's are often very difficult to read for many reasons. These were originally records written down by a minister or teacher in a local area from verbal information given by someone who in most cases couldn't read or spell their name so the chance of accuracy is fairly small. Add to that the errors brought in during the transcription process and you can end up with an index entry that is a long way from the correct name. Mc or Mac being indexed under Nc or Nic comes in quite a few times so I would suggest it should be Mc.
Hope this helps,
Isobel
