74259: ‘House 15’ Quay

Fisherman James MacLeod and his family moved here from Harris in about 1865, staying until at least 1872, when his youngest child was born. The family then moved to Newton, and the house passed to boat carpenter John MacLeod and his family. John was involved in the struggle for land rights, and later imprisoned for his role in the ‘Reef Incident’.
