MCBEATH OF HALKIRK, CAITHNESS, SCOTLAND AND EDINBURGH, MIDLOTHIAN, SCOTLAND

The McBEATH family were farmers, and for various periods of time lived at Sibster which is not far from the village of Halkirk, Caithness, Scotland. Over the years I have made contact with other McBEATH researchers from Halkirk but have been unable to link them – as yet.

My earliest McBEATH ancestor is George McBEATH born c1768. He married Elizabeth McKENZIE on the 6 Jul 1793 at Halkirk. George and Elizabeth had seven children;

William MCBEATH married Isabella WILLIAMSON in 1832 in Halkirk, and they went on to have eleven children. In the 1841 and 1851 census the family is living at Banniskirk Farm, but by 1857 they are at Sibster, where Williams father George was in the 1830s.

Children of William and Isabella;

In 1858 Isabella McBEATH nee WILLIAMSON died and in 1867 William married Margaret SINCLAIR, a 44-year-old spinster of Halkirk. He was 60. However this marriage was short lived with the death of Margaret only 3 months later. William died in 1885 in Halkirk Village aged 78 years.
