D50 - Christina McPhee
D50 - Christina McPhee
Christina's father was John Oig McPhee of Crieff - he was from a long line tenants of Crieff farm. Her mother was Christn Cameron who was possibly born in Fortingall but grew up at Achnacarry where her father was possibly Donald Cameron a saw miller. Crieff and Achnacarry are near Loch Arkaig.
Her parents were married in 1786 in Crieff and this is where Christina was born in 1787. She grew up there. When she was 17 years old the family moved to near Loch Eil. This is how she met Donald McLean.
Christina and Donald McLean lived in Blaich and Duisky on Loch Eil where they had 12 children (two died as infants) over the next two-and-half decades. The family migrated to South Australia in 1837.

D53 - False path for searching for an OPR for the birth of Christn Cameron (wife of John McPhee)
D53 - False path for searching for an OPR for the birth of Christn Cameron (wife of John McPhee)
Christn was living in Achnacarry in the parish of Kilmallie. These research notes are based on the possibility that she might have been born in another parish, and that her mother was not known. After extensive research was completed, it was found that her mother was Jane Robertson, so all the initial research was on a false path - a wasted effort.

D55 - John McPhee & Christ'n Cameron
D55 - John McPhee & Christ'n Cameron
John McPhee was the last of a line of McPhee tenants of Crieff farm. Christ'n Cameron was probably born in 1771 in Achnacarry to parents Jane Robertson and Donald Cameron, the saw-miller. John and Christ'n were married in 1786 and their daughter, Christina, was born the next year. In 1788 John took over the Crieff tenancy after his father died. In 1804 they were evicted because of the clearances for farming sheep rather than cattle. They settled on the outskirts Fort William.

John was the cousin two times removed of Christina McPhee. His memoirs are a key source for identifying Jane Robertson as the wife of Christina's probable grandfather, Donald Cameron.

Descendants of Lachlan Mor MacLean of Blaich - chart & notes - source Edwin MacLean
Edwin MacLean, who lives in Hamilton, is the achivist for the Clan MacLean Association of Australia in Victoria.
The document focuses on 21 people. Person 1 is Lachlan MacLean (born 1679) who was given as the father of Allan (person 7) who was thought to be the father of our Donald (born 1779, person 14).
This genealogy is our only source for many details, but there are some errors and it requires supporting evidence (OPRs etc). The details have been placed on our website www.christinaanddonaldmcLean.com but, because of lack of supporting evidence, they are in a side family tree 'Lairds, tacks & residents of Ardgour, Blaich & Duisky' rather than the main tree 'Christian and Donald McLean'.

E53 - Auchananda's - Donald's home in Strathalbyn
The McLeans built a 2-story house and barn/stables in early 1840s - 1 km from the Strathalbyn post office. At that time, these were among the first and best buildings in the district. The house was a ruin within about 50 years, but the barn/stables is still there - as a residence. (Updated 17th March 2019)

Where were the MacLean fighters in the devastating Culloden battle in 1746? This was 33 years before Donald was born and apparently neither his father nor grandfather were involved. However the traumatic events before and after the battle had a huge impact on Donald's kin and highland living. (Updated 12th March 2019)

Donald McLean and Christina, nee McPhee lived in the Western Highlands of Scotland for five decades before migrating to the new colony in South Australia with ten children in 1837. For a few years, they farmed near Adelaide where they grew the first wheat crop in the colony. Then they were pioneers in the Strathalbyn district. (Updated 17th March 2019)

The McLean family arrived in the earliest days of the colony. Donald purchased a property in the new Adelaide township. He took up an 80 acre farm where he grew the first substantial wheat crop and built a house. They were there for three or four years as the colony was rapidly growing around them. They moved to Strathalbyn in 1842.

G85 - Highway robbery of Donald by Robert Spearman in 1848
G85 - Highway robbery of Donald by Robert Spearman in 1848
In 1848, Donald was robbed of 76 pounds on his way back from Adelaide to his home in Strathalbyn. Robert Spearman, the innkeeper of the Mountain Hut, was convicted (but maybe he wasn't really guilty) and was sentenced to 15 years in Van Dieman's Land - but he escaped straight away. This document details the court proceedings and some stories about Spearman's adventures after he escaped. All this material would make a terrific play or novel. (Updated in 12th March 2019)

G91 - Donald McLean's Will - full transcription & notes
Donald signed his Will in 1846 and subsequently made six codicils before he died in 1855. It was a complex Will for his wife and many children involving numerous properties.
This document has images and transcriptions of the Will, codicils and probate. There is a listing of what each beneficiary was to receive and notes about all these.
Note that there are two identical copies of these notes on this website - one here in Small Print and the other in Donald's profile.
