[ The Lucy Bissell Story ]



The 1910 wedding of Euphemia Gordon Melville and Archibald Crawford Holms at Faskally House, Brora, Sutherland, Scotland.  The elderly gentleman seated front left is John Melville, the father of the bride. He was Post Runner/Time Keeper/Store Keeper and then Brick manufacturer at the Brora coalmine. Finally Leasee of the coalmine and brickworks.  Also Bandmaster, Captain of Brora Golf Club and the Chairman of the Sutherland County Council. He died a month after the wedding and was buried in Clynekirkton Cemetery, Brora.

The married couple went to New Zealand to make a home and the line associated with the, ancestors and descendants, can be seen on what I have designated the Coalmine Line Melvilles descent below.



Descendants of John Melville of Doll

 

1.  John Melville, b. ABT 1750 in Scotland (most likely son of William Melven [1730 -     ] and Ana Sutherland [1730 -     ]).

    

      John Melville had children to Helen MacDonald and possibly Kate Sutherland at the same time or earlier and at that time was  described as John Melvin, Elder. May have been brother to Alexander  and son of William Melven and Ana (Anna) Sutherland. Grave position, naming patterns and other circumstantial evidence  suggest this. Also possible that Alexander or John was the father of Catherine and Christina Melville.   From grave positions in Golspie Cemetery and types of stones and engraving it is possible that William's ancestors were Adam Melven and Elizabeth Elphinstone.  However, it is unlikely that this can ever by proved.  The early generations of the family, mainly the first two, were Melvin or Melven rather than Melville but the odd Melvin reference exists into the mid-19th century.  The Melvin/Melven spelling also exists in isolated individuals mentioned in estate records and in the families in the Loth/Portgower group of Melvilles.  Those gravestones in Golspie Cemetery were covered with grass for decades before being exposed to the weather by a clearance scheme in  the 1980s.  Many have deteriorated since then to such an extent that  they cannot be read.  Even when Couper and Ross, many years ago,  transcribed the stones many were difficult or impossible to read and  some misinterpreted.

 

     He married Helen Macdonald, b. ABT 1770, census 1841 in Dalchalm, Brora, Sutherland, Scotland.

He built a house there of stone and clay and thatched it with straw.  The timbers he got from the proprietor while the byre and barn had been repaired around 1849 the house was in a frail state.  John Melville was working his land in two lots.
