Can you help me identify the correct MacBayne family tree?

My ancestor John MacBayne was a Jacobite captured at Preston, Lancashire, in 1715 and transported to Maryland in the Shipp the Friendship of Belfast, Michael Mankin Commander, on the 20th of August 1716. He was sold into bondage for 7 years of servitude to John Ford. He petitioned for his freedom on August 3, 1721, which was denied. I believe he was born in Invernesshire. His name has been spelled variously as Macbayn and McBean in Maryland records but my family has used the MacBayne spelling. This is all the information I have.

I would like to identify his family tree in Scotland. Can you help me?

Thank you. Denise MacBayne

Hi Anonymous,

You could try searching the Old Parish registers on Scotland's People http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

Also if you do a Google search for Jacobite prisoners, Jacobite trial transcripts that will take you to several projects that have information on the jacobite era and sentences,etc.

If you need more help feel free to message me.

All the best with your search.
