Duart Castle - from BRB p23.jpg
Duart Castle overlooks the Sound on East of Mull,second largest island of Inner Hebrides, after Skye, in the council area of Argyll and Bute. 14th Century Mull became part of the Lordship of the Isles. 1493 the Clan Mclean took over and in 1681 Clan Campbell. Duart was restored and modernised more than 60 years by Sir Fitzroy MacLean of Duart who lived to be a centenarian and the chief's flag flies when his grandson, Lord MacLean is at home.

Donald McLean - ref BRB p30.jpg
A single (yet) unsubstantiated suggestion this is not correct photograph of Donald. SLSA say this is a correct image as the photographer, Townsend Duryea only created several mosaics from a large collection of images taken by another Strathalbyn photographer, Henry Jones. Jones took images of all male and female pioneers annually of early pioneers. SLSA collection number TBA have a mosiac of some 40 males and Donald Mclean is named by SLSA. Likewise for Christina McLean nee McPhee in a mosaic of some 600 females.

OPR Registry:Baptism: Allen McLean 1811 Feb 12 - parents Donald and Christina
OPR Registry:Baptism: Allen McLean 1811 Feb 12 - parents Donald and Christina
Seemingly the parish priest did 3 baptisms on 5th Feb and then Allen on 12th and not documented until AFTER the next baptism: where it was recalled that Allens record had not been entered. Hence it is squashed in between (though legible) in date order between the other baptisms.

One could almost see him resting in bed and settled down when he realises that Allens baptism had not been entered and the parish priest leapt out of bed/rest to scrawl in the entry with--in fact all the detail. Just as he had done just seven days prior with yet another child.
