STEWART DESCENDANTS FROM THE ISLE OF SKYE

I am researching STEWART DESCENDANTS FROM THE ISLE OF SKYE. Mainly the families who emigrated to Prince Edward Island but I am also interested in other Isle of Skye Stewarts who emigrated to other Provinces in Canada or to the United States and elsewhere. Other family lines that I am researching are Murchison, Nicholson, MacLean, MacKinnon, MacPhee and MacPherson. Also my mothers ancestors Langilles and Tattries from Montbeliard, France. The "Foreign Protestants" who emigrated to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 1752

 

This is Gedintailor, on the road to the Braes,
located south of Portree, Isle of Skye,
it was the home of some of my Stewart ancestors
