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
