Descendants of Alexander Melville of Crislich


1.  Alexander Melville, b. ABT 1785.

      Tenant farmer at Crislich, Foich and Coppernusgach from1810 to c1817. Was paying rent of £52 prior to 1813, had to give £60 to obtain in 1813  and was paying £60 in1815 according to Sutherland Estate Papers.  Left/removed from Crislich sometime in or after 1817, was reported to have gone to Dundee and later given as Merchant possibly in Edinburgh.  Deceased in 1859 at time of marriage of his son, John.  It is possible that Alexander was the son of John Melville and  Helen MacDonald though there are more distant possibilities. This would make him a brother to John Melville who  married Mary Sutherland.  This family relationship is likely as  Alexander's grandson. Adam Graham Melville, married two sisters given  as his 'cousins' german'.  The only possible two sisters are the  children of John Melville and Roberta Pope and the grandchildren of  John Melville and Mary Sutherland.  The 'cousins' would have been  second cousins but might still have been described as 'cousins german'  since they came together directly through the male line.
