Biography

Annie Menzies is a member of Clan Menzies.

Birth Anne was born in 1839 at Shian, Glen Quaich. Her story is attached in digital format.[1]

Residences in Scotland Glen Quaich is a glen in West Perthshire, which lies between Strath Tay and Glen Almond, which 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.

Most of this development happened in the 18 century when the communities in Loch Tay were being vacated as a result of the new farming and tenancy agreements brought about by the Marquis of Breadalbane.

Residences in Canada In the early 1800s around three hundred crofters left the Glen to resettle in Canada. After a three month voyage they colonised the Easthope area of Ontario and named their settlements Amulree and Glen Quaich.

Death She passed away in 1935 at 141 William Street, Stratford, North Easthope Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada.
