Donald Maclennan

Donald Maclennan

Donald Maclennan (1834-1904) was a son of John Maclennan and Jane Morrison of 9a Old Lemreway.

In 1843 Lemreway was cleared and the family obtained 4 Glen Tolsta.

Donald's father died around 1848.

Around 1856-7 his family moved to 49 North Tolsta, but it is not certain he was still living in the family home at this time. Donald married Catherine Macdonald, of 27 Coll, and the couple settled as cottars at 27 Coll and had their first six children. Their first child was born in 1859.

In 1875 the family obtained 67 Coll and the couple's last child was born there. In total they had seven children: five girls and two boys. Their daughter Ann became a cottar at 67 Coll, but in due course 67 Coll passed to their son, Alexander.
