Mary MacLeod

Mary MacLeod

Mary, born at Kyles Berneray some years before 1650, was the daughter of Norman MacLeod and his wife, the daughter of Farquahar MacCuish of Kyles Berneray Farm. Mary lived with her mother in Siabaidh, an area she remembered as corn and pasture land for cattle, which she helped to herd. In 1735, whilst giving evidence on the ownership of Grianam, Mary recalled the future Sir Norman MacLeod taking a group of men to fight at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.

Mary's husband was Dòmhnall mac Dhòmhnaill mhic Thormoid. They lived in Siabaidh, moving to Borve after the sandstorm of 1697. Mary died at her grandson Roderick's home in 1750 aged over 100 years.
