The crofts of Torbeg and Lingmore in the lower reaches of the Doll Settlement in the parish of Clyne were the residencies of a line of Melvilles which have been designated the Torbeg Melvilles.  This line starts with a John Melville born to John Melville and Kate Sutherland. This John was married to Elizabeth Munro and they lived in the Lingmore and Torbeg  crofts area in the early to mid 19th century.  As will be seen from the printed descent lines there were many family members, many early deaths and numerous connections at home and abroad into Doll families.

John Melville who fathered a John Melville to Kate Sutherland may have been the same John who fathered a John to Helen MacDonald.  Dates and circumstantial evidence suggests this as a possibility but clear evidence is not available.  John of John and Helen was the progenitor of another Doll line, the Coalmine Melvilles.  Even if the early John Melvilles do not come from the common source of a John who fathered children to Kate and Helen there are later links between both the family lines.

16.  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  hewas reiding 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 ofchildren 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.
