Ensign Finlay Munro died Nov 1803 Ardersier Invernesshire aged 45, (born c 1758). The Battalion was of Scots veterans, so I am assuming he was born Scotland. His widow in applying for LOA said he was "of the parish St Giles in the Fields Middlesex" (central London) There are no Munro records at that church 1750- 1760,but there is a family of Dr John Munro who lived in that parish and worked at Bethlehem Hospital London who may be a connection.Dr John was the son of Dr James, who was born Wemys 1680,a son of Alexander Munro Principal of Edinburgh University.


Jill Bowis, Argyll, auchindrainpeople@yahoo.co.uk

I am looking for anyone with connections to the Munro's of Inveraray area, especially those who may have lived in Auchindrain township back to the 1700's.

I am researching the people of the Auchindrain township and would love to share and learn together.

My granddad, Leonard Clarence Munro, was one of thirteen children. His father was James Munro (1847-1924) and his mother Caroline Kingston. James was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. His parents were James Munro and Mary Ann Dexter but I cannot trace any further on the Munro side. Can anyone help please?


Jean Fraser, Tasmania, Australia, dzyanna@gmail.com

I've reached a dead end on my family tree with Captain Hugh Munro. Born 1760. Married Jane Davis. Possible fought at the Siege of Gilbraltar in 1783 as part of the Royal Veteran Battalion. Fought at Walcheren, Netherlands in 1809. Stationed at the Scilly Isles in 1800 where his daughter Anna was christened. His son was Thomas Munro who was wounded at Talavera in 1809 and was in the 42nd Highlanders. The family moved to Tasmania, Australia where Anna married George Hull who had come out on the boat with them. Would dearly like to know who his father was and any info that would help me track that part of the tree back further.

Devin Monroe, Kingston, Ontario, Canada, devinmonroe@hotmail.com

I seem to have hit a roadblock in search for my family history back to Scotland. I have the information for my family up until 1805 where Daniel Monroe was born. From what I have gathered I think he was born in Scotland in 1805 and came to Ontario Canada at some point and died in 1882, I know that he was here in 1861 at the earliest but I cannot find hard evidence of his birth location. Does anyone know anything about a Daniel Monroe born in Scotland 1805 near Glengarry?


Tamara Cann, South Shore, KY 4110, tamara.cann@yahoo.com

I am looking for any information on my Great grandfathers side of the family. Edward was born to James Munro in 1880. In the England 1881 census it list James as an soldior and born in Halkirk Caithness. James maried Rosamond Cuzner 1n London in 1880 and on the marriage record it has his father listed as decesed and his name is Daniel and he was a blacksmith. Any help with this would be most appreciated.

Seeking descendants of Alexander Munro and Ann Swanson, g.grandfather was son of the above, John(Jock) born 1858 at Crockster Toll Bar, Olrig, Caithness, believe there was several children. Alexander was a master mariner.


Irene Medford-Dittrich, New York, irenemed@optonline.net

I am researching my family roots and have also hit a brick wall in finding my great + grandfather George Munro who traveled to Grenada in the late 1700s and married Louise Viechweg (Rouget). There were many Scottish settlers that headed towards the West Indies in the 1700s but we can't trace when, where and how George got there nor his birth or death records. He inherited Belle Aire Estate from his wife's side as the French originally owned Grenada. He had 3 sons and one daughter, George Henry, Louis Gun, John William and Ellen Munro. They owned Diamond and Boccage Estate in St. Mark, Grenada and were well off, exporting sugar, cocoa, nutmeg and marrying into other Scottish families such as Bell, Campbel and Hosten. There are also the Gun Munros from Grenada of the Poynztfield lineage but we cannot find a direct connection, only that our George Munro made George Gun Munro, Treasurer of the Island, his son's Godfather in 1824, giving him the Gun middle name, Louis Gun Munro.
