THE MAINLINE OR GOLSPIE MELVILLES

 

     Since this was the first line researched and the line from which my earliest known ancestors came it is the principal line of my research and designated the Mainline Melvlles.  It does not claim any precedence over other lines except in this interest to myself.  I have tried to research many of the connected lines and will reproduce those on this website as information, space and time permit.

 

     This line starts with certainly from Alexander Melville, born c1755, and Sarah Mackay but it is likely that it goes one further generation back to William Melven and Ana Sutherland with estimated birth dates of 1730.

 

     Any additions or corrections to the data would be very much appreciated.

      B. c1755. Place of birth unknown. Parents probably William Melven and Ana Sutherland.  Situation of grave stones and naming evidence suggests this. Very possibly brother of John Melville. Not found in1841 census and later information indicates dead by then. Name Melville variously spelt as Melvelle, Melven,  Melvin, Melville. According to survey of Clyne residents in 1849 Alexander died about 1829 on the tenancy he had built a house on about 1819.  This house was in poor repair when in the hands of his son-in-law William Gunn in 1849.  The house was built of stone and clay with a roof thatched with divots.  It stated that Alexander got no timber from the proprietor for the construction.

 

     He married Sarah MacKay.

57.  John Melville, b. 31 Oct 1839 in Doll, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1871 in Lonewell Cottage, Shettleston, Glasgow, Scotland, occupation 1865 Warehouseman, d. 23 Dec 1891 in New York, USA, census 1841 in Doll, Clyne, Sutherland, Scotland with parents and g-mother, census 1851 in Doll, Clyne, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1881 in 11 Hampden Tce., Cathcart, Renfrew, Scotland, occupation 1866 Warehouseman, occupation 1871 Drapery Warehouseman, occupation 1877 Warehouseman, occupation 1881 Clothier and Hosier, occupation 1884 Commercial Traveller, occupation 1888 Commercial Traveller.

      

        In 1881 census at 11 Hampden Terrace, Cathcart, Renfrew, Scotland. Given as a Clothier and Hosier and living with his family and  sister. Wife already deceased.  Also servant Jeanie McEwan aged 19 and  born in Islay.  Sister came south to look after family after death  of Isabella.  Sister Betsey returned to Doll and died there. In 1884  he was residing at 7 Walworth Terrace, Glasgow.  D. New York, USA on 23 Dec 1891 or possibly on 26 Dec 1891 as  this second date is that given by the records where he is buried ?  Green - Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York.  He is interred there with  son John Ellsworth Melville and at least three others ? John G  Melville(12/8/1894), Frank Melville (11/11/1899) and Henry Melville (18/12/1895).  The latter three may be children of John  Ellsworth Melville.   His death in New York is noted on his parents  grave in Golspie.  Along with that of brothers Alexander and William  who died in Canada.  A John Melville arrived New York, USA on the SS Furnessia and  was processed at immigration on 28 Sept. 1885.  Travelled from  Greenock, Glasgow via Moville, Ireland. Thought this might have been  this John but a later marriage in Scotland in 1885 has thrown doubt on  this - unless, of course, he went to US returned to Scotland and then  went to the US again. John registered the birth of his first child to  his second wife in December 1885 and the third in 1888.  At the birth  of his first and third children to Catherine Jane Barclay he has  signed the register and said the was present at birth.  The  signatures, albeit with slight variations, are very similar at the  births of children in first and second marriages indicating that John  was present in Scotland at the registration of daughter Catherine  Jane Melville on 3rd July 1888 and possibly at the birth three  weeks earlier.  A Mr Melville travelled from Scotland to New York in late 1888  and again possibly the John in question.  Being a Commercial Traveller  there is the possibility that business interests took him across  the Atlantic more than once though, of course, the fact his family to  his first wife emigrated to the USA might be the motivation.

 

       He married (1) Catherine Jane Barclay, 13 Nov 1884 in 1 Princes Street, Edinburgh, Scotland, b. 7 Dec 1862 in Pathhead, Dysart, Fife, Scotland (daughter of John Barclay and Euphemia Baillie Inglis), census 1891 in Parents home in Kircaldy, Fife, Scotland.

       Catherine:  Catherine never married & only had one child. She was known as Kate Roy or Kate Ruadh.  The designation Ruadh or Roy, meaning red, may have  been applied due to her having red hair or, more likely, because it  was a family by-name, her father being Alexander Sutherland Roy. She was  described by Brora registrar, Jack McLennan, as a local worthy or  character.  He remembers her walking between the Doll and Culmaily by way of the Iron Bridge and the Big Barns. Her route and frequency was also reported by her grand-daughter, Annie Melville. She  died in the poor houses at Mosshill, Brora having been put there when  her house burned down.  It is said she left some herrings in a covered  pan on the fire while at the sacraments. While there the thatch caught  fire.   Tom Aitchison notes that, 'she is reputed to have said that  when the herring fleet was in she had a sore back for weeks.  It  cannot be proved whether this back-ache was caused by lugging the heavy creels of 'silver darlings' from the boats to the quayside or as a result of more basic nocturnal activities!' Father of her child is John Melville who later married Mgt. Munro. Domestic Servant who died of Cerebral Apoplexy - D. Rpt. by  son, George.

          D. Rpt. by son, John A. Melville. D. From "The Northern Times" 16th May 1940. Death of Mr Alex. Melville. It was with feelings of regret the community heard of the death of  Mr Alex. Melville, lately caretaker of Clyne New Cemetery, on  Saturday,11th May, aged 51 years. Mr Melville, who was a native of Rogart, came to  residein the Doll and Badnellan districts before removing to the  County Council houses at 24 Victoria Drive, Brora, when they were completed and  ready for occupation. Before receiving the appointment of caretaker at  Clyne New Cemetery on 16th May 1928, deceased was employed as an  estate worker. A conscientious and honest workman, Mr Melville won  the respect of the community for the neat and tidy way he kept  Clyne's God's Acre during the years he acted as caretaker. Courteous  and obliging, it was with regret the public heard last year that he had  to relinquish his duties owing to ill-health. It has often been said  that it would be hard to find a better kept cemetery in the county  after Mr Melville had taken up his duties. Mr Melville took a deep  interest in everything pertaining to the welfare of Clyne. A keen  follower of football, Mr Melville presented a cup to the Doll for  local competition. Many have pleasant recollections of the  interesting evening games played for it before the Great War. He is  survived by his widow, son, daughter and other relatives who have the  sincere sympathy of the community in their bereavement. The funeral  took place to Clyne New Cemetery on Tuesday, and was well attended. The Rev. R.M.Boyd officiated at the house and cemetery.
