Why did Hugh Munroe come to Quebec? His wife, Janet Allan, had been born near Thurso, Caithness-shire in and died in They apparently farmed at a place called South Ely, which is no longer on Quebec maps.
When we were in Inverness and the Black Isle last July, we came across reference to an Alexander Munroe, who seemed to be related. It is possible that, born in the early s and being a rebel by nature, he was threatened by the Clearances. Black faced sheep were being introduced into the highlands and young Alexander, hot of head, stole one to get his own back on the laird Hugh Munro of Novar. Munro the change of spelling took place in Canada who appears in the records to have been hanged in Inverness at about that time.
This may be a clue to the emigration of Findlay Munroe and his infant son Hugh to Canada, and a date in the mids when they sailed. It might be possible that our ancestor Findlay had a brother Alexander, who was caught up in the quarrel in Culrain and, for some reason, stole a sheep from this estate, was caught and strung up. Why he acted, and how he was caught and suffered, we perhaps will never know.
He would have moved westward to Loch Broom, in search of a passage to Canada, and in an ironic twist named the son who was born there after the laird who in effect caused the murder of his brother. We would appreciate any information or opinions that can help us fit the pieces of this family puzzle more neatly together.
