Anne 'Annie' Mamey Menzies was born on 29 Apr 1839 at Shian, Glen Quaich, Perthshire, Scotland.[1] She was the daughter of Archibald Menzies and Christian Livingstone.

Residence in Scotland

Glen Quaich is a glen in West Perthshire, which lies between Strath Tay and Glen Almond, and runs north west from Amrulee for 9 miles (15 km), along the small road branching off the A822. This is a natural pass squeezed between Meall Dearg (2,264ft) and Meall nam Fuaran (2,641ft), emerging at the eastern extremity of Loch Tay.

The hamlet of Amulree in West Perthshire lies close to the geographical centre of Scotland. Along the shore line of Loch Freuchie there are several sites of ruined communities. These communities would have several houses, sometimes a mill and would have been home to perhaps 10 to 15 families.


  • 1842 - As the result of the 2nd Marquis of Breadalbane's directed clearances, the family was forced off their farm, and they travelled to Glasgow. Archibald & Christian, Annie' parents, departed from Glasgow with their young family to immigrate to Canada. They spent nearly 3 months at sea due to severe storms.[2] They colonised the Easthope area of Ontario and named their settlements Amulree and Glen Quaich.[3]


Anne 'Annie' Mamey Menzies married George Merrylees Snr on 25 Dec 1867 at North Easthope, Perth County, Ontario, Canada. They had three children during their marriage.[4]

Death and Burial

Annie 'Mamey' Menzies Merrylees died on 24 Jul 1935 at 141 William Street, Stratford, North Easthope Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada.[5] She was buried at Saint Andrew's Cemetery, North Easthope, Shakespeare, Perth County, Ontario, Canada.[6]
