Thank you, Wayne,
yes, I made a mistake. The marriage to Anne King was in October not December. I have kept the first name open since Angus is the anglicised version of Aeneas which was in common use in the family prior to 1745. I have a record of Angys being born in Callander in 1773 but some of the Clan had interests in farm land in Southern Perthshire prior to the devastation of The '45. Sir Aeneas Macpherson and Alexander MacPherson are both quoted as negotiating acquisition of farm land on behalf of Clunie before the '45
My first knowledge of Angus is from his wedding to Anne in 1798. The 1841 Census suggest 1773 as d.o.b. in Callander which can be quite a wide area containing several parishes. Their son, James, was born at Ballachraggan Farm, near Doune in 1806 so I assume Angus was farming there at the time. The Macphersons seem to have had a number of successful years prior to the Jacobite Rebellion in 1745 and since they grew roots, kale, barley and oats and beaf cattle they would have driven the cattle to the Lowland Markets in Crieff, Perth and Stirling annually. The lands around Callander would have been familiar to them and would have represented a natural extension of their range into farms closer to their markets. Information from the years around 1745 is not readily available but it seems likely that Angus, or his parents, migrated from Invernessshire, probably Invereshie, as part of this range extension. James was farming in Corshill Farm, Gartincaber Estate, in the 1830s. Although then owned by The Burn-Murdoch family it appears that this estate was acquired by Alexander Macpherson before the disruption of The '45.
Wayne, is there somewhere to store this background information?
All best wishes
