I have his father was Duncan McInnis (b abt 1785 in Scotland) married to Celia Sewell. I cannot prove this nor his parents/ancestors. Some trees in Ancestry have his father as Donald or Daniel.

Last Name McInnis infromation
I am just wondering if the last name spelling McInnis has evolve over the years from MacInnes and therefore we are from the same clan?
moderator's comment (06/22/2017 16:55:20):
Yes, almost all the Clan Names on the Septs and Clan Names page phonetically sound similar if not exactly alike. Some people will pronounce your name like Mac Innes, but most will say Mac Kinnes. My name is McKinnis and sounds the same is, es, or iss, with or without the K.

Neil McGinnis
Sometime around 1850, my third great-grandfather on my mother's side, Neil McGinnis, decided to move his family to Canada from North Bosidale, South Uist, Scotland. I was wondering if there were still McGinnis families still there, or have a connection to the area.

Love our Clan history
So glad that i found this page regarding the history of our wonderful Clan and Name. Planning a possible trip to Scotland in 2017 and would love to take my family to "Butter Castle", Kiel Church,Iona and Culloden to show them the history behind our name. So impressive to see the amazing numbers of the McInnis clan still proudly bearing our name in all parts of this great world.
moderator's comment (09/11/2016 12:08:22):
Kinlochaline is not normally open to individual tours, and Kiel Kirk no longer has services. But you can certainly drive by and look, and possibly found some one to let you in the church. The stones in the nearby carriage house are worth seeing.

She married John McIsaac, and gave birth to my 2x great-grandmother, Flora McIsaac. Flora married James Harris.

Is my family a sept of MacInnes
I found a book on Highland Clans some years ago that stated that Irons was a sept of Clan MacAonghais and MacInnes. My ancestors came to New Jersey from Perth and during the 1790 census stated so. I also did the Irons DNA Project and I have the Viking gene. Am I a MacInnes clan member?

moderator's comment (06/28/2016 19:29:29):
It is hard to say. You could join our DNA project and see if you match any of the known MacInnes.

McInnes' in New Zealand
I have been researching the Clan for a few years. My ancestors came from South Skye. Gr Grandfather, Lachlan, listed in the 1841 census with Father, Duncan, Mother, Margarget, and siblings was on the Araminta which sailed to Melbourne in 1852. Grandfather, also Lachlan, came to NZ and the rest is history

Culloden Appin Marker
Greetings MacInnes
I am also disappointed in the NTS placement of the name MacLaren on the Appin Marker. It gives the impression that Balquhidder MacLarens fought in the Appin Regiment, which they did not. There were 27 Appin McLaurins who fought in the Appin Regiment, including my ancestor Duncan McLaurin who later emigrated to N.C. in 1790. These McLaurins had been in Appin since at least 1468 and where maternal progenitors of Dugald McLaurin Stewart, 1st Appin. My view is that the current MacLaren Chief and Societies are simply glory hunters. Specifically stealing the Appin McLaurins history as their own. None of the McLaurin descendants were consulted and shows disrespect to the actual 13 McLaurins killed and 14 McLaurin survivors of Culloden.

These Appin McLaurins recognized the Stewart of Appin as Clan Chief (not the MacLaren Chief) and followed Ardsheal into battle. They had nothing to do with the Balquhidder MacLarens since the 15th century, when they left Strathearn to take Appin in the name of Dugald McLaurin Stewart, then settle there amongst the MacColl, Livingstone and MacInnes.

I have contacted NTS and Culloden itself to no avail, this insult to our common heritage needs to be revived and pursued vigorously.

A correction, The Perthshire MacLarens had a continuous line of Strathearn Clan Chiefs for at least 600 years up through the early 1900's. Donald McLaren of Ardveche, Strathearn was the last. This is not publicized because the current Clan Chief of the name MacLaren claim is bogus, he claims descent from Auchleskine which was not the Chiefs line, but a sub-branch. Modern scholarship has also shown his genealogy is a complete fabrication and that "The MacLarens" the so-called definitive history of the Clan is mostly fiction. Ex. Abbot Labran of Achtow the so-called progenitor of Clan MacLaren never existed.

Family
Is There anyone that could be related to me here? My family tree has the last names, Neff, Johnson, Chase, Ford, and Lincoln and also MacInnes. My great grandmother that just passed away in April 2015 could speak gaelic but I never learned from her. I'm trying to make a family tree

Mary Macinnes
My Grandmother Mary Macinnes left Oban sometime in the 1920's. Her reason for leaving was kept a secret, possibly pregnancy or something similar, however it was never mentioned. My father was born in Stafford, England in 1929-30, the father is not mentioned on his birth certificate. Does anyone know of a Mary Macinnes leaving their family around this time for reasons unexplained? Mary died when I was around 14 years old, 1969. I do have an old photo of her if it helps. Thank you.

Malcolm(Calum Mor) MacInnes
Hello, I am a great grandson of Isabella MacInnes, Daughter of Alexander MacInnes, son of Malcolm (Calum Mor) of Heast.
Alexander and Isabella came to Australia in 1853. She married Donald, son of Archie(Tigharry North Uist, son of Ranald, son of Archie ban of Grianan) MacDonald in Australia.
Just wondering if anyone had any further info on the the Calum Mor generation and beyond.
I am reasonably certain I have things correct as far as Malcolm.
Cheers.

Interested in learning more about the family.
Was doing research on McNease name and found this site: https://www.houseofnames.com/mcnease-family-crest
The site states that the original family name is a Dalriadan Scottish name which is a cognate of MacAngus and MacInnes. So would love to know more about the family.
I have also found this site that recounts the life of Angus. http://macinnes.org/dalriada.php

McInnes
Looking for information on my wife's family (McInnes). Marriage between John McInnes and Mary MacPherson, both from the Isle of Skye. This was John's second marriage (1. to Mary McKinnon). The marriage between John McInnes and Mary MacPherson was believed to have taken place on the Isle of Skye, or mainland around 1818. Any assistance/help in this would be greatly appreciated, seeing we are on the other side of the world, makes it somewhat difficult to check first hand.
Regards,
Mike Griffiths, NSW Australia

looking for my roots
Greetings! I am researching my ancestors. I believe I am from the Roger Magenis/William McGinnis' from the Belfast area, but not entirely sure. I stumbled on this site and love it. I am hoping to visit N Ireland and Scotland in the near future to reconnect with my McGinnis roots. My father was the last of his particular line of McGinnis' (which is a looming line... his father was the youngest of 20) and I want to do what I can to pass on the heritage. Thank you!

Angus/MacInnes
Our mum was an Angus, from Malaysia, Singapore. Her dad was an engineer with the east india company. When the Japanese bombed, half her familly went to Australia, and the other to UK. Angus is a very ancient clan, and we usually end up with MacInnes tartans. (Son of Angus) . ♡

Historian interested in early Scotland
Earliest records indicate that my Grandmother, born Grace McGinnis, is descended from Clan Mc Innes. The connection is through a nun at St. Stevens Abbey in Dublin. She is listed as of the name of MacInnes, "having three brothers of the name of... McGinnis". As near as we can determine the brothers and their sister fled some some sort of legal trouble in Scotland in the early 1800s and stopped in Dublin. The brothers dropped their sister at the convent in Stevens and changed their names to McGinnis (a common Irish name) and emmigrated to The US. One of the brothers settled in Pennsylvania and his grand daughter or possibly great granddaughter was Grace McGinnis. I am a historian interested in the Pictish culture in 4th/5th century Scotland. I have done research on the Antonine Wall in Straithclyde and am interested in the fifth century Whithorn mission of St. Ninian and the early settlement on Iona. Also interested in early Christian activity in and around present day Dunkeld.

Jonathan MacInnes Uncle to Johan/Joan MacInnes Sculamus/Breakish Isle of Skye.
. I am the eldest Grand-child of Joan MacSween (nee Johan/Joan MacInnes). On the day I was Christened on Skye, I've come across info. stating my Gran's father was an Alexander MacInnes too though not recorded in S.R.B . Recently I met with Professor Norman MacDonald, author of recently published new book; 'The Great Book of Skye'. In it, my Gran is mentioned as having saved several Traditional Gaelic songs from the Breakish area that are sung world wide, particularly in Nova Scotia. I have been working on my Gran's genealogy for about 3 years now in spare time, & will appreciate any 'snippet' of information about this MacInnes Family known. The croft & house(s) of No. 1 Sculamus I've presently traced back to 1755, & it & the croft presently remain owned by descendants of Johan.

Jonathan MacInnes Uncle to Johan/Joan MacInnes Sculamus/Breakish Isle of Skye.
I'm seeking information on Jonathan MacInnes who -emigrated to New Zealand - early 1900's. He was the eldest son of Alexander & Jane (nee MacKinnon) who were married on 29/1/1863 Broadford Strath. He was born on 28/1/1865 at No.1 Sculamus the family home. The other brothers were Alexander, Angus, John & James. He had 4 sisters; Mary, Flora, Margaret (Maggie) & Marion. All born there too. I know D.O.D. for most & what they were doing via Census records bar Jonathan & Angus in particular. Alexander was Head of house in 1901 & '11. Marion, who worked in the Ayrshire area of Scotland as a Domestic/Cook/Housekeeper via same Census years, gave birth to Johan/Joan MacInnes on 24/3/1907 (illegitimate) at the above house too. Sadly Marion died there of TB on 6/10/1913, her mother Jane still alive at this time. John died in the Broadford Schoolhouse on 27/6/1951 as Joan was a teacher at this School, & John MacSween her husband, the Headmaster. James had emigrated to N.Y. in 1923, closely followed by another niece Maggie, illegitimate daughter of Flora. He was personal Valet to Sir Benjamin Sumner Welles & latterly worked for a Sir Charles Hay; ( can't find any present info. on him bar, could this latter be an alias of Sir Charlie Chaplin as I remember him stopping outside the Skye home ?1968/69 with his wife Oona, & giving me a lollypop?). James died on 1/9/1969 in N.Y. None of the brothers are known to have married. I am the eldest Grand-child of Joan MacSween (nee Johan/Joan MacInnes).

McInnes
Mothers maiden name is McInnes. Great grandfather James King MacInnes of Glasgow dropped the "a" when he came over to US at Ellis Island around 1921

Excited to see the site. Very close to my McInnes family.

I guess I'm a close to being scotch as I can be without being from there directly with my two family names

Stewart of course on fathers side but don't know much on it. I will have to dig on that side

Glad to see the site.

Hello from the West of Canada
Hello everyone,

I just stumbled across this page after typing in my middle name MacInnes. I know a little about my family history and spent a year living in Scotland. However, I would like to learn more about where my ancestors came from and how they came to Canada. So I thought I would join the community.

I was named after my grandmother who was Isabelle MacInnes and she Married my grandfather George Payne. My parents decided to give me her name as my mother is French (hence Isabelle) and they loved the idea of using MacInnes as my middle name.

I know my family has been in Canada for a long time and can even trace our heritage to those living in the USA before the ware of independence.

Anyway that is enough for now.

Izzy

Greetings Family
Today at 5:09 AM
The family story goes something like this: Angus McInnes (sp?), my grandfather married Gertrude Schroller, McInnes (sp?), then Baumgartner, in Portland, Oregon. I am told Angus for a time worked in a logging camp at the Bull Run Water Shed in Oregon. I am told he was killed due to a fall down a ships hold in Tacoma, Washington circa Nov. 1926, when my father Donald Bruce MacInnis, Dec. 26, 1924 - Mar. 12, 1987 was nearly 2 years of age. Grandmother, legend has it, changed spelling of her only child's surname in an effort make Donald sound more Scottish. Which is not entirely clear for granny was undoubtedly German. Dad married my mother Alma Jean Conlon (indecently granny on mom's side had more German ancestry than anything else, but very much played up the Irish stuff) in Jun. 1952, bearing four children. Jeffrey Donald, Conlyn Marie, Shawn Maureen, and Kevin Bruce - MacInnis. There are four children from us kids, One alive but unknown, Donovan, and Kelly MacInnis along with Carrie Sanchez-Vanover. It is not known where Angus hailed from or if he had siblings or unknown children bastard or otherwise.

Dad was an enthusiastic and highly skilled archer, had a disdain for alcohol, and profound respect for authority. Well, lol, he was damn good with a bow. I can still hear him rant about what body parts he would enjoy to paint blue, and which leader of a country adjacent Scotland he'd relish ta' show'em to. Dear old dad.

Thank You,

j.

We\'re cousins!
Hello Barbra,

I'm actually in Edinburgh, Scotland, at this very moment! Your grandmother Christina (I'm wondering if Christian) was the sister of my grandfather, John "Red" MacInnis. I met her for the first time when I was sixteen; she came to my father's funeral in Douglas, MA. I've done a lot of family research, but because of many "tall tales," it's hard to know for certain where we come from, but I do have some facts for you. Our great-grandmother Margaret MacInnis was born Margaret MacDonald on Christmas Island, Cape Breton. Our great-grandfather, Neil Duncan, is the slippery one, and I'd prefer to share his story with you in a private email. I have left my email for you here and would be happy to be in touch with you. I have a sister named Jessica, a paternal uncle named Michael, and a daughter named Lila Rose MacInnis-Baumert.

Warm regards to you,
Margaret MacInnis

Hello!! Love the macinnes web site! I'm trying to find some info about my grandma, her maiden name is Christian Macinnis and was born in 1921 at Newton Middlesex, Massachusetts. Her sister name is Louiso and a brother named John Macinnis born in 1918. My great grandma name is Margaret MacInnis born 1890. I think she came to the USA in 1918, from St.John New Brunswick, Canada. I not sure who she married too, it could be John Neil or Duncan MacInnis. Her maiden could be MacDonald. Oh this maybe some kind of help, my great grandfather was killed from a train when my grandma was a toddler. Sorry to bug you, and thank you. Proud to be from MacInnis and cant wait to go to the next Highlands Games at Stone Mnt. Ga. Want my son to see some of where he gets his gens from.

McGinnis/McKinnis
Hello all fellow clanmates!
I have recently begun doing the family genealogy. I have traced my father's name back to Thomas McGinnis (McGuinness) who imigrated from Ballinasloe Ireland to California.
Then I noticed a McKinnis line through my mother's side and got that traced back to Charles McKinnis who came from Bona Bornia, Scotland where that line ends. Charles McKinnis fought with the British in the French & Indian war.

It's pretty fun find where my ancestors came from.

McInnes in Ontario, Canada
McInnes Family Review
I was a member of the Clan McInnes years ago. Recent records allowed me to make a little more genealogy progress. My great-grandfather Thomas McInnes 1850-1937 shows up in Victoria County, Ontario, Canada from 1885-1888 with the birth of some of his children. He married Isabella McGillivray in 1875 and I now discovered there was a large group of McInnes and McGillivray Scottish settlers in Victoria County, Ontario. There are 26 McInnes and 35 McGillivray names in Victoria County cemeteries http://ocfa.islandnet.com/
The parents of my Thomas McInnes appear to be John MacInnes & Mary Clapperton.
The quest continues.

My ggg-grandfather was Angus McInnis from North Carolina originally. His father was also Angus McInnis and from North Carolina. No idea when exactly our McInnis clan came from Scotland (or Northern Ireland).

Greetings and Hello
I am really glad to say hello to you all. I know whiting isn't very Scottish, but a short explanation should suffice. My Grand father fled the UK in 1924 after getting involved with some Irish folks. When he got to America he adopted the last name of his best friend. My grandfathers name was Charles Edward MacInnes...

Wow, FINALLY found this after tracing ancestors for a while.
Glad to finally have found this. This is awesome lol. Scrolled down a bit, didn't see anybody else with "McMasters" on here, dang! Lol. Just sent my Req to the FB MacInnes Clan. :) btw can anybody tell me the difference in MacInnes vs McMasters? Or is it just the name change over the years? New to genealogy, so not sure. Thanks! :)

Inverness Cape Breton MacInnis Family
I'm a rookie genealogist in the process of tracing my Mother's family. Her name is Johnina MacInnis ( 1915 - 2003 ) daughter of Alexander MacInnis (1891-1953) and Jessica Ann Rankin (1889 - ? ). Johnina was born in Inverness, Alexander in Cape Mabou , Jessica in Broad Cove Banks all of which are on Cape Breton Island, N.S.
Unfortunately I'm stalled at my 2nd Great Grandfather, James MacInnis (abt 1805 - ? ) husband of Catherine (Katie) MacDougall ( abt 1815 - ? ).
If anyone reading this who can be of help either on the MacInnis or the Rankin side, will be much appreciated.
Emails welcomed !

Hi Everyone:)
Just wanted to say "Hi" to all the MacInnes' out there.I am very proud to be one of them .My ancestry goes back to Rory Saor McInnes(myGGGGgrandfather) from Barra,Scotland.His sons(Michael,Neil(CastleBay),Donald(Benacadie) &Rory(Iona))and his daughter(Sarah) came to Canada in (abt.)1817.I thought I would let everyone interested know about a book called "The MacKenzies History of Christmas Island Parrish" written by Archibald J. MacKenzie.It tells of alot of Mc/MacInnes'(pg.57),lists spouses and children.It tells what areas that they lived.It is also great for those who want to learn about a MacInnes connection.For me,it listed right up to my grandfather.There is also another book-"Mabou Pioneers" by A.D. MacDonald that lists McInnes' from Mabou Ridge and West Lake Ainslie.I hope some searchers find a few answers with this info.Happy Hunting!Good Health and Good Spirits to all! Joslyn

Hi, I'm really enjoying your website, I'm planning a trip to Scotland in the next couple of years to explore and visit our historical roots. My family is from Nova Scotia but I don't know any more than that at this time. My father has Alzheimers and unfortunately it may be too late to gather any accurate information from him.

A MacKinnon Welcome from Oklahoma
Greetings from Oklahoma!! I am just now finding your website, looks very nice. I would like to intoduce myself. I am Byron Jones from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and am a member of Clan MacKinnon and the United Scottish Clans of Oklahoma (www.uscoscots.org). I have been the Oklahoma Commissioner for Clan MacKinnon since 2008 and would like to invite all MacInneses in the Oklahoma area to stop by and say, "Hello" at the USCO Iron Thistle Scottish Games & Feastival held the 3rd weekend of April in Yukon, Oklahoma. Also, I am currently working on my four grandparent family genealogies, and some time ago, I came across some ancestors who were actually MacInnis in my Love Family line. Since it appears that I have MacInnes in addition to MacKinnon and MacLaine, I would very much like to honour all these clans in whatever way possible.
I would greatly appreciate hearing from someone within the Clan MacInnes whenever it is convenient.
Respectfully,
Byron Jones

Hi,I do not know much of my past other than my grandfather moved to a place called Sunnybrae Nova Scotia. Not sure if he moved there from Cape Breton Nova Scotia or Scotland.His name was John MacInnis and he married Elsie MacDonald and one of his sons is Russell MacInnis (my father) I guess I`m just hoping someone might read this and it rings a bell.
Thanks

? Stables Family Attached to MacInnes Tartan
Just found an old e-mail from my cousin, and she said, according to one of the old tartan books, STABLES is attached to MacInnes ( Angus) but she didn't know if all of the Stables in Scotland are related. We do have Forsyths in the Family. My Great Grandmother was an illegitimate child by a James Forsyth.
I have never been able to find, after looking many times over the years for a Tartan from my STABLES heritage.
Thank you, Judy Anderson nee Stables

Name variation McCann
I traced my G-G-G-G-G-G-Grandfather to Laurence McCan born in Scotland in 1740...could his name be MacCans and of the sept of MacInnes?
moderator's comment (06/03/2012 22:39:32):
We do show McCan as a name variation of MacInnes, very possible.

finally connected
Today, I had the good fortune to finally discover that my grandmonther's surname, McAninch, belongs to the Clan MacInnes. It will be a pleasure to see what our clan history and legend contains!

Family History
The Angus name (Aonghais) is very ancient. I don't know where the Anguses came from in Scotland originally. The only Angus ancestor I can find is a John Angus, my great, great, grandfather, who was born around 1800 and emigrated to the United States in 1929 with a wife and two children. They emmigrated from Grenoch although I imagine the Angus family originally came from somewhere else. Does anyone know?

Help! WHO AM I AND WHERE DID I COME FROM?
aboutI don't know much about where my origins are because no one in our family got along to well and keeping in touch wasn't their strongest features what's this done in htlm? Anyway, Grampa's name was Daniel MacInnis, his son, my dad is Alan Niel MacInnis, he died 2 yrs ago at 78. Me{his daughter} I'm Anne E MacInnis and my 2 sons are Daniel and Nicholas MacInnis. My granddad told me his people lived in Nova scotia and trickled down first 2 new hamshire then Beverly MA. Where my dad grew up. I tried doing the tree thing, but After my grandad, I just did not know much about him except that he grew up in a farm in NewHamshire. So that's my short story Maybe you know more of a way I could track down my heritage. Thanx, this is an ill sight, and I thought MacInnis were extint. I wonder if I'm related to any of these people, except I see they don't spell theyre name the same way, which makes me believe that I got lost some where down the line Anyway thanx for listening. Oh btw, my name is Hughes now. Can't afford a divorce Anne MacInns

John Mcninnes Flora Mcinnes
Strath B1772 Strath B1768

I have been able to trace back my ancesters to the above - John Mcinnes was a crofter in Strath Inverness. Their son Hector married a Clemintine and moved to Glasgow. They had a daughter Flora who married a Mcnee and moved to Liverpool - they had a daughter Clemintine who had a daughter Flora - my grand-mother - so we can trace the name Flora right back to Strath. How would we go about finding out anything about the family?

Honorary Member
Maybe you will think, this is a silly question. My father, who died three years ago, had a friend in Nova Scotia who gave him a document that proved him as a honorary member of the McInnis Clan. It is a piece of wood with the words "McInnis" and "Nova Scotia" an a small emblem on it. then then name of my father "Manfred Mertens" and the words "honorary member". (sorry, my English may be hard to understand)

Can you please tell me if this is authentic or is it a peace of touristic souvenir. If it's genuine, I will keep it and I will have another story to tell my future grandchildren. And of course I would support this clan if I ever happen to visit Highland Games;-) Thank you very much for any kind of answer!
moderator's comment (03/04/2012 10:50:15):
I am not aware of such a practice. Usually it is the name or blood line that makes a person "part of the clan". But there are no formal rules for this.

We always welcome anyone to the clan.

Trying to create a family tree
I really appreciate this site. I am trying to trace my family's roots and currently not having much luck. This Site has given me the historical information that I have craved for so long. I find it startling that we all currently exist because of one shared ancestor at the root of all of our shared family trees. I am sad we lost our castle, I would have liked to have been able to visit a piece of our heritage.

Greetings, fellow MacInnes's!
My name is Ben McInnis from Rhode Island. My aunt provided the link to this site and I was very excited to find it. I went for a very long time not knowing anything about our shared heritage and then only going on speculation. It was very nice to discover our history through my aunt, and then finding this site so I can further my knowledge of all things MacInnes! I wish the Association the best of luck with its mission and would love to connect with other members of our Clan!

McInnes Family Tree
Hi from Australia. Just found this site. I am trying to trace my family tree. My Grandmother on my dads side is a MacInnes. I have traced far back as my GG Grandfather Donald MacInnes born in 1840 & died 23 March 1914 who married Mary MacDonald. They had a son Allan born 1871 in Glasgow, Scotland who migrated to Australia & married Elizabeth O'Reilly born 1860 in Cavan Ireland & died 1933 in Australia. They had a daughter Mary MacInnes B19 Jul 1906, Australia & D1995, Australia. My Grandmother married John MacKinnon B 6 Jul 1901 Barra, Scotland & D10 Jun 1955 in London. Any information would be appreciated as I would love to be able to trace the MavInnes's Clan further back than my GG Grandf Donald MacInnes.

MAGINNIS FROM COUNTY DOWN, NORTHERN IRELAND
Hi
Just found this site after about 3 years of researching my family tree. Very informative site and well done!!! Maybe I am being silly but I didn't see our Maginnis spelling on your site, please correct me if I'm wrong? Our Scottish connection goes back to about the 1880's when my Great Grand Father James Maginnis lived in Dalmellington in Ayr and worked in the mines. He and his wife Sarah (nee Greenan) moved to Scotland when his children were young and must have stayed while there was plenty of work. Our other connection with Scotland is that his son, my Grand Father married a Scottish girl, Rose Hutchinson in 1915. Rose's parents were both Irish but lived in Dalmellington or Rutherglen where they raised there family during the 1870s and 1880s. All reports show that both families worked in the mine at Dalmellington. Would love to know if anyone has any information or connection with this line of our family. My Dad, Patrick Joseph was actually born in Dalmellington as well before his family returned to Co Down to settle inthe late 1920s. I can get as far back as my Great Great Grandfather Murtagh Maginnis but I only know his name as it is shown on the birth record for James Maginnis, my Great GrandFather who was born in 1835 in County Down. If anyone has any information or can point me in the right direction I would be really grateful. Wishing you all the best for the future, Pattie
moderator's comment (02/04/2012 14:44:07):
Since there is not a c in the name it does not look like a Mac. But still is a viable spelling variation, we have many.

If one of the males in your line could do a DNA test maybe you could match someone else. A long shot, these tests can be very strange.

Great to see the site flourishing and lots of McInnes ilk with an interest in their heritage. Check out www.posteritypost.com it has a McInnes cover that you can select when you write a letter for posterity to future generations. If someone from the Clan Society would like to get in touch I can have this set up so a contribution goes to the society when anyone uses the McInnes cover.... and to help the Society. I have quite a bit on McInnes's from Skye and if anyone wants to get in touch please do so.

Hello
Hello My name is Lisa I am just starting out trying to figure out my family history. I know very very little. What I do know is My father's mother's madien name is Mckinney her brother's name is Cleon Mckinney with more ancestor's further up our tree that are from scottland and that when they left Scottland they came to America sometime in the 1700's ?? & that they settled in North Carolina that is as much info I have so far. Before my Grandma & Great-Grandma passed I somewhat remember them telling me stories of our family history. I also know that there is a long history of musicans throughout my family. It is a huge herditary trait to love music and either sing or play an instrument in my family. After reading the Macinnes history I feel it in my heart I am on to something here. Since I was a small child I have always been drawn to the scottish culture as I got older I always wondered deep in my heart why am i so drawn to everything scottish. Everything that I have ever heard seen or known that has to do with scottland just captures my heart and attention. The music, food, kilts, bagpipes stories,legands, history etc you name it I am drawn to it deep within my heart & soul. I have always felt such a strong connection to the scottish culture/ heritage even before I ever knew anything about my bloodline is it possible to feel where you come from on such a deep level? I am so needing help to figure out how to know for sure where I come from & how to confirm what I believe I have always known in my heart that I am scottish. Most of my father's relatives I either don't know their names or they are decessed like I said I have no clue where to even start. if it is possible I would love some tips on how to begin. Would it or is it possible just to get a DNA test or is that maybe hard to dertimine if i am so far down the bloodline. Please if anyone knows where I should start I could use all the help I can get.
moderator's comment (04/09/2017 13:52:03):
Finding your roots can be both frustrating and very rewarding.

The name McKinney is usually associated with Clan MacInnon. But we do have evidence of McKinney's with Clan MacInnes. See http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/MCKINNEY/2000-12/0978234367 .

A DNA test can give you information on origins. But these tests go back many generations. So family bibles or any other data will give you more recent information. The females can get a maternal mtDNA test on http://www.familytreedna.com You can use the MacInnes name to get a discount. If there is any male McKinney, or in the direct line, this is the best DNA test. Male DNA is passed directly from male to male, so this has the best information.

There is a lot of information on line, especially for North Carolina. The Carolinas were a major entry point for Scottish immigrants.

Good luck in your search.

Right to use the Tartan?
I've been doing research on my heritage, but I'm still unclear on the right to use the tartan. Who has the right to use the tartan? My grandmother was a McInnes, but my mom a Wallcraft, and me, well I'm an Unrau. do I have to right? Just curious.
moderator's comment (08/28/2011 17:29:42):
Since you have MacInnes in your family (McInnes) you should have the right to wear the tartan. Usually the tartan reflects your affiliation or genealogy.

My McInnis Family
My MacInnises of Castle Bay, Shenacadie and Iona are descended from Rory McInnis of Barra. His sons, Michael, Neil, Donald and Rory, and one daughter, the second wife of hector McNeil (John Piper) of Piper?s Cove, came to this country. The sons came about the year 1817. Michael and Neil settled at Castle Bay: Donald at Benacadie, and Rory at Iona.

It appears that they were shipwrights and that they used to work at their trade in Glasgow and in other parts of Scotland, hence the appellation, ?Saor?, or carpenter that was generally used after their surnames. An adz that ?Rory Saor? worked with in the old country is still doing service among his descendents at Iona.

Michael McInnis was married to Catherine Galbraith. Issue: John, Donald, Stephen, Neil, Mary and Sarah.

Stephen McInnis (Michael) was a blacksmith and farmer. He settled at Shenacadie and became the first post-master of that place. He married Mary, daughter of Jonathon McPhee (Tailor) Issue: Ann, Catherine, John, Michael, Mary, Lucy, Elizabeth, Ambrose and Sarah.

Ann married Joseph Bryden, Miller.

Catherine Married Stephen M. McKinnon.

John settled at Shenacaide and married Margaret McDonald (Ealasaid Thearlaich) = (*Elizabeth Thearlich), of McKinnon?s Harbour. Issue: Liza, Mary Ann, Sarah, Stephen Alex, Mary M., Sarah M. and Christie. A number of these were school teachers and Stephen Alex is a telegraph operator in Alberta.

Michael settled at North Sydney where he was in the employ of the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Col for a long time.

Lucy Married Alex McSween, of Glasgow.

Elizabeth married Archie N. McKinnon, of Big Beach.
Sarah married Hugh Farrell, merchant, Benacadie.

Ambrose settled in the old homestead and married a daughter of Donald McKinnon (Niel), of Shenacadie. Issue: Stephen, Mary Agnes, Flora and Daniel. Stephen is telegraph operator at George?s River. Flora is married to a McNeil from Gillis Point, and lives in Sydney.

I have more family information.

Neil MacInnes
Just found this sight and am very excited. My grandad come to the USA via Canada. His name was Neil MacInnes from the Isle of Skye. He was born May 19th, 1884(I believe). He married Nellie Orrom from Tunbridge Wells, England in the US. They had 2 children Ethel and Flora. I don't have much other information and would love to know if I have cousins still in Scotland. Any information would help.

McInnis Family Lot 36 PEI
My great grandmother was Ann McInnis born around 1864 (died 1963) on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Her father was Allan McInnis (born on PEI around 1828) and her mother was Mary Flynn from Newfoundland. I haven't had any success going beyond Allan McInnis. Any PEI researchers out there? Anne's siblings from 1881 census are: Mary, James, Allan, Bridget, Kate, Francis, and Sarah Catherine. I am happy to discover Scottish ancestry to go with my Irish background.

MacInnis from Meaford, Ontario
Does anyone know of the MacInnis family in Meaford, Ontario who owned fishing boats. Names were Stanley, Frank and Father was Duncan. Dad always told me that his ancestors originated from Iona, Scotland. Went on a trip to Iona in 1985, unfortunately after he had died. It was wondering and saw many grave marking with the MacInnis name on them., Glad to have found this site.

To whom it may concern, I was brousing and came across this page it looks great. I am a true MacInnes, My great grandfather came over in the late 1800's. Our cemitery plot is in Laurel Hiil Philadelphia, going back to 1700's. Just thought someone would like to know and maybe email me.
Thanks for the great web page, looks great. Steve

McKinney Side of the Family
Greetings,
I have many connections to the McKinney families of the Carolinas and Tennessee/VA areas. I would also like to know why the name was changed to McKinney. Also a researcher in our family said our original name was MacKynnye. I did not see anything like this in your information. Our folk are from the Isl. of Sky, Mull and Iona.
Any info would be appreciated.

Great to find Connections
Hi, great to find extended family, my mother is part of the clan through her paternal grandmother's mother. We are McInnis and we come from Jura, with names such as malcolm and angus. Great to finally find some good ancient history and sense of pride in my scottish blood.

I'm Confused!
Ok here goes. My last name is Holland and I'm trying to find out if it is associated with a clan out there... I'm getting too many conflicting answers. HELP!? I've read that Holland is associated with the Angus district as well as that sept or clan, which ever it is (told you I was confused), and now I've found that your clan is linked to the name Angus. Do you know whether or not the Holland surname is also linked to your clan?

Any help in understanding all this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time
Leslie Holland
(Leslie is a scottish name as well :)
moderator's comment (05/22/2011 14:43:48):
I do not think your name is associated with Clan MacInnes. We are not associated with the district but with the Angus of the west, with Lorne and Fergus. You may try the Innes Clan which I think is from that area. Innes and Clan MacInnes are not related at all with each other.

My grandfather was Daniel MacInnes
My grandfather was born in Calais, ME on 2/3/1866. His father was James MacInnes born in Edinboro, Scotland and his mother Mary A. Boyle or Ellen were born in Scotland also. Daniel married my grandmother, Lydia Burdett on 4/24/1892 in Providence, RI and died in Winthrop, ME on 6/23/1920. The had 14 children (some died at birth). They were Arthur Donald, Charles Albert, Daniel Webster, Harold Wilfred, Flora Louise, Clarence John, James Ralph, Gladys Louise, Robert Francis, Hugh Warren, Florence Grace, Dorothy Margaret, Lester Theodore, Martha Alice and Catherine Mae. All with the last name MacInnes. Sometime the spelling of the last name was recorded wrong. ALso shows McInnes, McInis and MacInis. Does any of this sound familiar

McMaster Research
My grandmother always wondered about the origins of her great grandmother, Mary Jane McMaster. I never found much. Now I have found a link between McMaster and McInnes so hoping to find the McMaster family origins. Like all Americans, I have a mixed background. I was always drawn to my celtic roots thru my irish grandmother and my half scottish grandmother. Happy to be here!

Hello there!
I must say I am very happy to have found this site. I do not know much about my family tree, only that there are not many of us left here in Ma. My father Dean (deceased) is the son of Chester McInnis (deceased). Thats all I know. I do know that I have/had family in Hawaii (second or third cousins). I'm very happy to know that my family is not as small as I thought. Good to see there are so many McInnis' out there.

Looking For My Family
I was adopted at the age of ten and was given the name of Vincent. My Biological Father was James Donald McInnis, son of James Daniel McInnis.
I have an older brother James Douglas McInnis. My father was a Geophysist in Calgary Alberta. He wrote me once many years ago. My grandmother was Lucy Hatch McInnis. I have an aunt in Coalhurst Alberta, her name is Marjorie R. Davidson. This is all I know. I would like to share more information but it is probably smart that I do not in this format. All of this information can be found online though. hello everyone, I feel a bit closer to home. Thanks for the site.

Researching McMaster
Great site! Just got here and have learned so much. I'm trying to understand the difference between McMaster and McMasters. I'm eager to learn the history and where the family lines diverge and converge. Fun and fascinating!
moderator's comment (02/22/2011 22:04:53):
Uhh, one has an s at the end?

Many deriviations of the name, many changed at Ellis Island, a relative who wanted to change the name. Exact names seem to indicate closer relatives for a few generations, and then more and more variance as you go back.

A McMaster was said to be keeper of the Kinlochaline Castle, thus the expressions "master of the house".

Macinnes of Harris
Hi to all the Macinnes clan out there. I'm researching my grandfather's (Duncan born 1901) family and have got back as far my great, great, great, grandfather, Donald who was born circa 1800 and his wife, Christina (aka Christy aka Cristy Macdonald) and I've hit a brick wall!!! From what I've managed to find out Donald was alive when the 1861 census was completed but dead before his wife died in November 1865 (at Rhenigidale, Harris). Christina's parents were Duncan Macdonald and Marion Macleod. I know that a whole lot of Macinnes's went to Nova Scotia and from there on to Australia and NZ but any help on the Macinnes's who stayed home would be very much appreciated. (I myself was born in Fort William, Scotland but have been living in NZ for about 16 years). Any help would be soooo much appreciated, even if I could track down any of Donald's siblings, that would be awesome. Cheers

Looking for more info that goes further back...
My children and I are so happy to have found this site. I do plan on joining in the future. This is the information on herritage that I have so far:

1st generation: Charles McKinnis and Rachel Carr

2nd generation: James McKinnis, b 1807 d 1896, Lucy Wickham

3rd generation: Creighton McKinnis b 17 Jan 1833, d. 28 May 1916. Malinda Barrett b 23 Feb, 1837, d. 2 Jan 1893

4th generation: Francis Marion McKinnis, b Dubuque County, Iowa, 25 June 1858, d, Medford, OR, 16 July 1927, heart attack which the family labeled "catarrh of the stomache", buried in Ashland Cemetery

5th generation:William Creighton McKinnis, b Willows, Colusa County, CA, 25 September1887 d 1957 Medford OR - stroke. (Myrtle, Joanne, Ralph, William Glen, Lowell, Ethelyn, Carl )

6th generation: William Glen McKinnis

7th generation: Jeffrey Scott McKinnis

Jeffrey Scott was my father. There are quite a few of us out here on the west coast of the USA now, Dad had two bothers and 1 sister, so I have many cousins, and I also have a brother and sister from my father. I would like more info on Charles and his history. It is all so wonderful when we learn more. It is good to remember where we come from and keep our traditions alive.
moderator's comment (02/12/2011 10:57:21):
I assume you have the 1913 geneology on Charles. Not too much else is known, cannot find the location Bona Boria.

I am also from James and Lucy, but branch with Fulton.

Has any make done the DNA in your family? Very interesting, we have strong ties with the Grants.

I do a lot of Coll research and just MIGHT be able to help. I visit the island as often as possible and have been in touch with other McInnes/Coll descendants. I am 'struggling' initially with your Q, mainly because of the many McInnes spelling variations. What is the source of your 1876 Totamor birth?

Am I a MacInnes??
I am a Neis from the Pacific, is Neis part of the MacInnes clan??
moderator's comment (12/31/2010 16:46:05):
It is possible. We list MacNeish as a sept of clan MacInnes, and Neish, which is very close to your Neis, is also listed. Phonetic derivations are usually considered to be part of the names as well. You can see the name at http://macinnes.org/septs.php So you would have the right to use the MacInnes tartan.

If you have a male in the family that would like to do the DNA testing, this is another way to see if you have links that go back in history. We just had a McAninch that found some linkage.

I have traced her family through Crieff Scotland in the late 1800's and would welcome any additional information if anyone has some.
I am also trying to trace the McInnes family I found on Skye so any info from there most welcome

Margaret McInnis Hanger
Hello! I have been doing my family tree and have traced the McInnis family back to John McInnis, 1815-1887 in Owen Sound, Canada. His son was Donald, 1859-1917. His son was Peter, 1880-1957. Peter was my grandfather. He came to Luce County Michigan and became a US citizen. My father, Donald, 1907-1977 had six children: Donald, Mary Alice, Margaret, David, Tom, and Gary. I am interested in any information on this branch of the McInnis family. The first McInnis to come to Canada was Margasret Millan McInnis, a widow with several children.

Kilt Pleating
My eldest son and I are ordering tartan kilts to be made for his wedding next year and I'm "confused" to know which pleating to request for the MacInnes (Ancient Hunting 1464) tartan. For years as Dir.of Music for 48th Highlanders of Canada (Toronto) I wore the Davidson Tartan which had a "knife military" pleat. Any suggestions, or even better, photos of our clan tartan pleats?
moderator's comment (10/20/2010 20:06:05):
I am not aware of any special pleating, I would ask the tailor just for "normal" pleats.

Hail all Macs!
Eager to find out more about this branch of my family tree. Although, in typical American fashion, I am a mix of several rich cultures - but the Celtic part I find most identity. I have attended several Celtic faires and games here in California. My brother in the San diego area told me about the site. It is terrific!!!

Hello from Scotland
Just came across this site, hugely interesting how far spread the family seems to be. My family originates from Barra in the Western Isles where there are a few MacInnes cousins thriving. I would be interested to hear from anyone originating from the Barra/Eriskay/South Uist region who may be related. Also have strong links with MacIntyre/MacLean.

Keep up the good work to all concerned with the site...

My husband and I recently attended the Estes Park Colorado Scottish / Irish Festival. We stopped by the McInnes Clan booth and I was thrilled to learn about the history of my family name "McGinnis". While there I met several other McGinnis' who were also impressed with the amount of information available to us by Scot McInnes and the organization. Thanks for all the hard work.

I've been researching my heritage and I think it's kind of cool I came across this site.
My Great Grandfather moved to the US from Scotland making me a third generation America, but still a MacInnes at heart. I am fascinated by our families history and by the fact that we are all, somehow related

MacInnes decendent
Hello from a MacInnes decendent. My grandmother was Jean Cooper MacInnes Turner and was born in Scotland. She came over to the US when she was about 5. She was a devoted MacInnes for all her life. Of all my immigrant grandparents or great grandparents, she was the most proud of her heritage.

I do a lot of Coll research and just MIGHT be able to help. I visit the island as often as possible and have been in touch with other McInnes/Coll descendants. I am 'struggling' initially with your Q, mainly because of the many McInnes spelling variations. What is the source of your 1876 Totamor birth?

Hello
As an Austin, I was naturaly born into the Keith clan. Howver, On one bloodline from my grandmothers side, I traced my heritage back to the year of 1090 in Scotland. If my research is correct, I'm related to an "Earl of Angus, Dufugan who was born in that year - 1090. Then his son, (I think) Earl of Angus, Gillbride born in the year 1118? But I'm not sure if that is completely correct. Just the same, it seems that no matter which bloodline I trace back, they all started somewhere in Scotland.

McInnes family tree search
My mother was Edith McInnes, born in Goole Yorkshire 1926.
I was at Kilchrist Church on the Isle of Skye and found grave stones with the McInnes name and this has set me on the long path to trace my McInnes family.
I have traced her family through Crieff Scotland in the late 1800's and would welcome any additional information if anyone has some.
I am also trying to trace the McInnes family I found on Skye so any info from there most welcome

I have come across two similar stories of the dispersal of McMasters by the McLeans, one in the Mclean and other histories dating the event around 1432 and in the MacInnes history putting it at around 1335. Does anyone know whether these are mutually exclusive or which is the correct date and story.
Have tramped around Ardgour in the past and hope to do so again soon armed with a list of additional things to seek out.

Donald was thorough in his research, but hopefully someone else can validate the data.

Relatives in Bowmore, Islay
Jane MacInnes, born in Bowmore, Islay 1838, is my great grandmother.
I would very much like to contact anyone in North America who might be related.
In the 1960's a Paul MacInnes, who had an engineering business in Rochester, NY, visited Bowmore. The Business is still operating with the MacInnes name in Rochester but Paul sold it to the current owner's Father and they had no contact. I interpolate that Paul was my Fathers generation (born 1897).

from the Prince Edward Island MacInnis's
I was born on Prince Edward Is. , Canada and our family moved to the USA when I was young. As I've searched for info about our clan (much before the internet) I've came across two tartens,,,the green one shown on this site,,,,,,, and a red one,,, is there two branches of the clan? Anyway, it's wonderful to know so many that share my name and heritage.

McGinnis
So, I am adopted but have always been linked with my birth mother and never my birth father but my adoptive mom says his last name is McKinley or something like that. But my Biological father had the name of McGinnis. Today, I went to the Highland games located in Northeast Florida and found out that my grandfather's last name is traced to the MacInnes. I'm really excited about all this and plan to trace down more family with this discovery. Now all I have to get is to find my birth father and track down that bloodline.

Going Home for a visit
We are very excited that in July 2010 we are going to Iona for a visit almost 150 years after our great great grandfather John Macinnes left with his wife and family to start a new life in Australia. There are many descendants in Australia from this family and hopefully we will be able to make contact with our distant cousins who still live on Iona. We will be touring around other parts of Scotland too. Can't wait!

Writing for my loving wife Kimberly. She is a MacInnes (Mother Mary MacInnes and grandparents Archie and Etty MacInnes from Greenock). We try to visit across the pond and thru the mist at least once a year. Her cousin Elizabeth lives in Greenock, and with her cousin, we have been exploring heritage, since they are the last of the direct family linkage. Found some ancestry in Campbellton.

Spelling of name
Hi all... I Have not seen "MacGinnis" spelling besides myself,and close family.I am still trying to learn if its Irish or Scottish.Any insight ?? Thanks.
moderator's comment (01/08/2010 16:55:42):
Our Director of Membership is a MacGinnis. Chances are you are Scottish with that spelling, a more typical Irish spelling is MacGuinnes. But it could go both ways.

A DNA test may help, especially if you match with others of similar spelling. But that old family bible or history is the most definitive.

Good hunting.

Chariots of Fire
In the movie "Chariots of Fire" (1981) i always loved the scene of Eric Liddell (main character) participating in the race that takes place at a Scottish Games. Since watching that movie as a child i always wanted to participate in the races that i thought were held at Scottish Games. I have tried to find information on if the games still have races, but from what i have found, that is something not done. If someone knows anything about races being held at the games please help me find information on that. Thankyou

The only one I know of is at Grandfather Mountain. They have a mile high race that starts at the bottom and goes to the games. There is also a kilted mile race.

SCOTTISH FIELD
To let Clan MacInnes know, that Mhairi Ross (nee Livingstone) has written an article about St John's Church, Ballachulish. This will be published in the JULY edition of the SCOTTISH FIELD - just before our celebration to welcome Clan MacInnes on 19th July. NB Mhairi's ancestors are from Ballachulish & removed the bones of James Stewart of the Glen from the gibbet @ Ballachulish Ferry (Appin Murder).

Have been wanting to learn more about my hertiage this appears to be the place. Would like to meet fellow MacInnes clan members in the Atlanta area. If there are any groups in the area would like to participate. Look forward to learning more and getting involved. Hope to hear from someone soon.

Mrs
Hello!
I was married to Andrew Hunter McInnes & have 2 children who still bear the name, a son Andrew Jason and a daughter Nadine. My daughter has been researching the family tree and hopes one day to visit Scotland again. Her grandmother was formerly McCrae and her grandfather was also Andrew Hunter. They emigrated to South Africa sometime around 1953 and never visited Scotland again! My present husband and I tour Scotland every year during September and October. We are so sorry not to be able to be at the 2009 Homecoming but wish you all every best wish for a successful gathering!
Kind regards
Helen & Charles
