Donald Macinnes

Donald Macinnes

Donald (1791-1876)  was the son of John Macinnes and Catherine Munro, Harris.  

The family later moved to 5 Brollum.  

Donald married Rachel Macinnes, 13 Old Orinsay. They settled in Harris where their son John was born.

The family then moved to 7 Brollum.

Donald came to Gravir with his brother-in-law John Macinnes when Donald's house at Brollum Park was wrecked by a large boulder that rolled down the hill. The Stewarts of the Sheep Farm at Pairc would not let Donald rebuild his house but instead directed him to Gravir. The families of both Donald and John settled initially at 36 Gravir. Subsequently John moved to 8 Gravir by mutual consent, probably by casting lots as to whether Donald or John should relocate.

Donald and Rachel had eight children.
