Pope Descent from ? Pope

Generation One

1.  ? Pope .  It is recorded in church records that William, Thomas and Charles, the known sons of this individual, were all born in Ross-shire and that William was the eldest.

     It is said that a 'stranger' by the name of Pope, a churchman, landed in Cromarty Bay about the close of the 15th century.  It is claimed the Popes of Easter Ross and Sutherland are descended from this churchman.  The records of the Sutherland family of Dunrobin, as reported in the Hector Lithgow papers, indicate that all the Popes of Sutherland were from the same family.

     The name of the family was variously spelt as Pape, Paip, Peap andPope.  For the purpose of recording it will generally by given the Pope spelling. He marriedAgnes Reid .  Agnes: According to the Laing Manuscript at St Andrews University the  mother of William, Thomas and Charles Pope was Agnes Reid but further it gives the other named siblings of those three who came to Sutherland as Jerome Pope, James Pope, David Pope, Nans Pope, Janet Pope and Bessy Pope.  Agnes Reid's father is given as John Reid as is her grandfather while her grandmother is listed as Ellen Cockburn the daughter of Bishop Henry Cockburn and Bessy Gordon.


            2.       i.     Thomas Pope .

                      ii.    William Pope , d. BEF 1630 in Nigg, Ross-shire , Scotland .  William Pape, native of Ross-shire, was first noted as a Reader at Ardersier, in thecounty of Inverness-shire , in 1580.  The post indicated that he did not hold Holy Orders but it was a post frequently combined with other duties, such as being Schoolmaster. William matriculated at St. Andrew's University in 1583 and a graduate of St. Andrew's University in 1587. However, courses of study were not necessarily continuous in those times and he was, in fact, appointed Schoolmaster at Dornoch in 1585.   He became the parson there in 1588.  In 1599 further honour followed with his appointment, by King James, to the Chantry of the Diocese and he is later stated to have been appointed Chanter of Dornoch in 1602.  This was followed in1606 with his appointment as constant Moderator of the Presbytery. William Pape finished his career in the ministry and his life as Pastor of Nigg in Ross-shire.  The date of his removal to Nigg appears to have been about 1613. He married Cristine (Christian) Monypenny .

            3.       iii.   Charles Pope .

Generation Two

2.  Thomas Pope .  Chancellor of the Diocese of Caithness (1612) and was Minister at Rogart in 1590 and along with brother William was a member of the Assembly in Glasgow in 1610. The prebend of the church at Rogart was held by the Cathedral Chapter of Dornoch and dedicated to St Colin. Thomas transferred to the parish of Cullicudden in Ross-shire in 1614and was still in the ministry there in May 1634.

     Thomas, and his brother William, were grievously wounded in the Pope(Pape) riot in Dornoch Cemetery in 1607 and his brother Charles was killed.


            4.       i.     Charles Pope b. 1600.

3.  Charles Pope .  Charles Pape, the brother of William and Thomas Pape, was a Notary Public and Messenger at Arms. The records held by St Andrew's University notes that Charles was the brother of William and was from Meikle Reny.  There are a number of places with the name Meikle in Ross & Cromarty and identifying where Charles moved from to Dornoch has not been possible with any certainty.  The most likely is Meikle Rhynie to the east of Tain and in the area of Fearn Abbey.  Since there was clearly a strong religious settlement and tradition here before the reformation and even after 1560 the Abbey continued to be used as a church, Meikle Rhynie must be a strong contender for Charles former abode.  Black in his surnames of Scotland spells the name Rhynie as Ryny which is not a step too far from Reny.  Incidentally, A resident of Ross-shire when asked by me where Meikle Reny might be immediately said it was most likely Meikle Rhynie.

     Charles was given the Sheriff Clerkship and was the unfortunate family member killed in the Pope Riot described later.  Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae Volume 7 in the same section, on William Pope of Nigg, states that Charles from Meikle Reny was William Pope's brother and also tells of his death in the Pope Riot of Dornoch. This being the case it is most likely that Charles came from Meikle Reny to Dornoch.It is said that Charles was an affable individual and a merry conversationalist who was popular in the area. He married Margaret Gordon .  Margaret: Daughter of Alexander Gordon of Siddera as noted in the Pope Riot papers and by the tables of Sir Robert Gordon (d.1656)  Here it states Charles Pape portioner of Meklerany married Margaret Gordon and she secondly married Hutcheon Rosse of Kindease and that to both she had issue (children).  Alistair Gordon, researcher in the Gordon family and resident in London, says in 2007, that his late aunt showed at him marriage for Margaret Gordon to Hugh Ross of Resolis giving her source as I.S. vii.74 which is assumed to be Inverness sasines RS37/7/74.  The date might be about 1650.

     This information is probably correct - she married Hugh Ross and a Hugh or Thomas Ross according to the Calendar of Fearn in addition to Charle Pope.


                      i.     Gilbert Pope .  Burgess of Tain and served heir to his father of the lands of Meikle Rainey, Ross-shire 18.12.1629.  One account claims that the Reverend Hector Pope of Loth is the son of Gilbert while another gives Hectors father as Gilbert's cousin Charles Pope.

                      ii.    Barbara Pope .  Noted in the Pope Riot papers.

Generation Three

4.  Charles Pope , b. 1600 - 1610 in Ross-shire , Scotland , occupation Minister of Religion.  Minister of Religion.  Is either the Father or Uncle of Hector Pope ofLoth.   One account gives Hector's father as this Charles while another claims Hector to be the son of Gilbert, Burgess of Tain. He took up the charge of Cullicudden before 1638 as he is mentioned in Mackay's Dingwall Presbytery records as Clerk to the Presbytery in November 1638.  It is from this Charles Pope  of Cullicudden that Alexander Pope of Reay was descended and it is also stated that Alexander was a direct descendant, through Hector Pope of Loth, of William Pope (Pape). Since he is the direct ancestor of Alexander of Reay and Alexander was the son of Hector of Loth then the above relationship has to be as stated.  Charles Pope, said in Fasti, to be most probably the son of  Thomas Pope the previous minister of Cullicuden. Bearing in mind the various stated relationships then it is certainly most likely Charles was the son of Thomas - if not then he had to be the son of one of the other brothers William or Charles.


            5.       i.     Hector Pope b. ABT 1660.

Generation Four

5.  Hector Pope , b. ABT 1660, d. 15 Jan 1719.  Married firstly to someone Leith to who he had two children. Hector Pape, Minister at Loth, met along with others, at a diocesan synod in1682 and also in the following year. According to Fasti Church Records, Hector graduated MA at Marschal College , Aberdeen in 1672.This suggest a birth year of around 1650.  It is also said in Fasti that Hector of Loth was the last parish minister to appear in the pulpit clothed in a surplice.

     Death date according to a family gravestone in Loth Cemetery is 1740.However, the rental and arrears records for Cracaig, Loth for 1724-1727 lists Christian Dunbar, relict of Hector Peap.  This indicates Hector dead by this time.  Date of 1719 given in church records and is, as certain as one can be, correct. George Taylor, Writer inGolspie gives the date as between 3 Nov 1718 and 5 Mar 1719. Direct lineal descendant of Charles Pope and a descendant of William Pope of Dornoch. He married (1) Christian Dunbar .  Christian: Hector was married secondly to Christian Dunbar of Cyderhall and next to nothing is known of this lady at this time.  The only separate reference I have been able to find for her is in the Sutherland Estate Records.  It is recorded in the rental and arrears records for Cracaig, Loth for 1724 -1727 that Christian Dunbar, relict of Hector Peap, in 1725 received support from the estate. He married (2) Unknown Leith . Unknown: First wife of Rev. Hector Pope of Loth.

ABT 1744 in 3096A, d. 15 Apr 1826 in Loth, Sutherland , Scotland .  William of Gartymore and buried in Loth Cemetery .  I have no record of a wife to William nor proof of a family other than his reference to his 'natural daughter' Margaret Pope in his Last will and Testament. The wording might suggest an illegitimate daughter. Cousin to Hector Lithgow and left a sum of money in Hector's will.

                      iv.   Hector Pope .  Died unmarried in the West Indies .

                      viii. Janet Pope , b. ABT 1753, d. 1831 in Navidale, Kildonan, Sutherland, Scotland.  Died unmarried.

8.  Helen Pope , b. ABT 1710.  Child Hector to Alexander Lythgoe but not married to him. She married Alexander Lithgow .  Alexander: Planned he should enter church but instead joined army - served with42nd Regiment.  Illegitimate son, Hector Lythgoe or Lithgow, to Helen Pope.  Though noted as illegitimate in some research George S Taylor in his evidence for the Lords of the Treasury points out it was said that Alexander and Helen married at house of her half sister in Kincurdie, Ross-shire.

     Noted by GST that a Robert Lithgow was in Dornoch in 1730-32 and had two illegitimate children there. He adds that this Robert was known to the Rev Alexander Pope.


            23.     i.     Hector Lythgoe b. 1740.

9.  James Pope , d. ABT 1771.  For sometime before receipt of the Pope MS with the details of the investigations into the Pope family connections by George sTaylor , Writer from Golspie, it was thought that a James Pope was a member of the East Sutherland Popes and progenitor of the Durness/Scourie Popes. A James Pope in Dornoch who had two recorded sons, Hugh and Alexander, both who were probably illegitimate, was a chief 'suspect'. Evidence now indicates that James son of Hector Pope of Loth was the James sought though it is not certain that he was the same James as the one in Dornoch.  The James Pope of Dornoch had the sons to Isobell Monro while James of Hector married Ann Ross.  With the prominence of the Pope family, their generally good level of education and the strong Dornoch links James of Dornoch and James of Hector might be one and the same.  What is certain is that the Popes of Sutherland andCaithness come from a common ancestral source. He married Ann Ross .  Ann: From the Doll (Dole according to George S Taylor), Clyne, Sutherland.

ABT 1761 in Aberdeen ,Scotland , occupation Schoolmaster, d. 25 Aug 1853 in Olrig House, Caithness , Scotland .  James: Assuming marriage to Janet Sinclair identified in Website information on Olrig House is correct then he was a Schoolmaster.  This marriage, which I have not recorded as yet, is uncertain and it is not clear how a 'poor' schoolmaster could purchase such a property.  He married at the age of about 70 years and his wife was 35 years his junior.  She may have been his first wife though clearly an earlier marriage was likely.  He may have met his wife, Isabella, through his nephew James who was married to Williamina Ross, the sister of Isabella.  The similarity in ages of 'cousins' can be confusing and if all this is correct then some of the cousins referred to in the Smith of Olrig website were more likely to have been second cousins.

BEF 1835.  James: Followed the first year of the class of 1810-1814 at Marischal College , Aberdeen and then the next year transferred to the equivalent class at Kings College , Aberdeen . He was living on his uncle’s farm of Hayfield, part of the Olrig estate, in 1823. He married 15 August 1822at Loth in Sutherland, Williamina (or Wilhelmina) Ross, sister of Isabella ROSS, his future aunt.

George S Taylor gives residence as in Liverpool and with four children but so far only three named here. She married Peter McLean , occupation Collier.  Peter: Collier.  Dead in 1841 according to census.  Another source gives nameas Thomas but since this source has been unreliable in other instances it is most likely the name should be Peter.

Gow, Grand-Daughter, with Janet and George in Tongue.  Another error in census with Janet given as born Durness. She married George McKay , married 28 Jan 1831 in Sangomore, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland, b. ABT 1805 in Sangobeg, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1851 in Sangobeg, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland, occupation 1851 Tenant at Sangobeg, d. 1898 in Doll, Clyne, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1881 in Tongue, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1841 in Ceannabin, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland.  George: Jane Waite indicates that the record of marriage states 'The same day(28 Jan 1831) at Saingomore George McKay Ceannabinn and Janet Pope from the Parish of Loth.'  Pope MS indicates marriage to a Donald Mackay.  George Mackay's father was Donald Mackay so may be some confusion here.


                      i.     John McKay , b. ABT 1830, census 1841 in Ceannabin, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland.  John appears in 1841 census but is then not with family in following census.  This could be a child that died.  However, extensive research into the mystery of a John Pope from Durness who worked in Liverpool, married in Edinburgh, had family in Liverpool and Wick, whose wife died in Thurso, who placed his two children in Durness and Wick when his wife died and who went to Australia, remarried there and died inQueensland in 1863 suggests John Mckay and John Pope might be one and the same person.  Possibly born to Janet before she married GeorgeMcKay.

                      ii.    Catherine (Ketty) McKay , b. 24 May 1832, census 1841 in Ceannabin, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1851 in Sangobeg, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland.  Listed in 1841 census as Ketty.

55.  Hugh Forbes Pope , b. 9 Aug 1795 in Sangobeg, Durness, Sutherland, Scotland, census 1861 in Fangamore, Eddrachillis, Sutherland, Scotland, occupation 1861 Crofter, d. 28 Apr 1875 in Geocrab, Harris, Inverness-shire, Scotland, census 1871 in Geocrab, Harris, Inverness-shire, Scotland, occupation 1864 Ship owner on McKay Popes mar. cert., occupation 1871 Seafaring Man, occupation 1875 Given as Mariner on Death certificate.  Hugh Pope was a fisherman living in Rispond and a sailor in Rispond and married Ann Morrison from Kinlochbervie on 11 November 1814.  This is almost certainly the same Hugh who later married Johanna McKay.The Rispond fishing industry was developed  1813 when a pier and houses were built and provided for fishermen hence the likely move of Hugh from the family home in Keoldale, Durness.  By 1813, he had builta pier at Rispond, several houses for fishermen and a smoke curing building for fish. The tacksman James Anderson, rented sea areas to local men and charged them money to go fishing. He owned all the fishing boats and equipment and rented at very high prices. The fishermen had to sell their catch to James Anderson the tacksman at very low prices. Kinlochbervie was, and still is, a principal fishing port in the northwest of Sutherland and no doubt Hugh met his wife while in that port. There are no records of any other Pope family in Rispond and no other Hugh Pope in the area.  It would appear that Ann Morrison died and Hugh married a second time.

       In 1830 Hugh was living with family (eight males and five females) in Rispond near Durness. By 1837 Hugh was in Fannagmore.  Dr Malcolm Bangor Jones says it can be assumed he was a subtenant of James Anderson and that his leaving of Rispond might be the beginning of Anderson 's removals.

       Given in 1841 census as living at Tarbert, Scourie as a farmer. At Fanagmore, Near Scourie, Sutherland in 1861.  On the death certificate of son, James, given as a Seaman. Mother given as Ann McKay as would be expected though given as Catherine on Alexie's baptismal record. Death reported by son-in-law Norman McAulay, with his X).  Cause of death - old age.

       Evander McIver, Factor to the Sutherland Estate, states in his notebook written about 1847 - Fangamore - Hugh Pope rent £4 6s 2d,Able family, due rent 1846 of £4 6s 2d and ought to pay - Good stock. This would seem to indicate that although rent was due there would be no problem in receiving it.  He had no figure in the Arrears Column. He married (1) Johanna McKay , married 1818 in Durness, Sutherland , Scotland , b. ABT 1790, census 1861 in Fangamore, Eddrachillis, Sutherland , Scotland , occupation 1861 Crofter's Wife, census 1871 in Geocrab, Harris, Inverness-shire , Scotland .  He married (2) Ann Morrison , married 11 Nov 1814 in Kinlochbervie, Sutherland , Scotland .
