    John MacFarlane                    circa 1888

         There died, at S. W. Margaree on the 19th day of Dec. last, John MacFarlane Esq. Sr., miller, in the 84th year of his age. Deceased was born in Antigonish County, and when 18 years of age came with his parents and the rest of his family to Margaree, and bought the farm known as the Chapel farm. He was the oldest son in his family, and when 21 he and his brother Angus (who survives him) took up homesteads near the Outlet, and they are today the best looking farms in North Inverness. He met with many losses in his early days of housekeeping. In the space of three years he lost by fire two beautiful houses, a large barn full of hay and wheat, together with eighteen head cattle, and a pair of horses. He was always remarkable for his coolness and discretion. When his last house was burned he was working in the woods and hurried home with his broad axe on his shoulder. When assured of the safety of his family from the flames, he turned to the few people present and said "plenty wood in Cape Breton to make another house". He was the confidential crony of the late lamented Sir Wm. Young in his campaign in this county and was the leader of the 500 Scots who marched to Cheticamp in 1832, with their banners floating in the breeze, and the sound of the pibroch rending the air, stirring the hearts of the gallant sons of Albion, but also terrorized the sons of Gaul, there was no resistance given. The day passed quietly, and on the pole being closed, Young was elected and Smith defeated. The deceased addressed his followers in Gaelic and concluded by asking the pipers "Cluich nise failta phrionnsa". He was a genuine, true and noble Highlander. His home was the home of the poor, he was a man of few words, and many deeds, to the needy, the widows, and the orphans, he delighted to give; and with the sorrowing he was an everready sympathizer. As a citizen he did his duty conscientiously, faithfully and without ostentation. As a Christian he was always at the post of duty, and everready to do and give for the good of the church and his fellow man; and as a husband and a father while strict to duty and true to conviction, he ruled in love, with that beaming kindness and cheerful attention, that made home the greatest blessing, an earthly attraction to his family. He left his family in very comfortable circumstances. He was buried in St. Andrew's cemetery and his funeral was attended by an emmense assemblage of friends who showed their esteem of his character and talents, by unfeigned sorrow of his passing.6
  • Biography*: John MacFarlane was one of the first of his family to be born in Nova Scotia. His grandparents, Dougald MacFarlane and his wife Margaret MacDonnell, progenitors of the MacFarlanes of Nova Scotia, arrived from Scotland with their extended family in Pictou in 1801 aboard the ship DOVE. Dougald was at this time about 80 years old. They rented a farm for a short time at Antigonish Harbor then settled at South River, Antigonish County about 1803 or 1804. Dougald's son Archibald settled on a homestead about two miles south of his father. It was here in 1804 that John, the oldest son was born to his parents Archibald (son of Dougald and Margaret) and Margaret Gillis.

    In 1822 Archibald and his brother John moved with their families to the Margaree area of Cape Breton Island. John moved to Margaree Harbor while Archie settled in South West Margaree on what became known as the Chapel Farm. John, Archie's son, now about 18, went with him.

    In 1834 John received a grant from King William IV to an additional 200 acres. It stated, in part:

    "WILLIAM the FOURTH, by the Grace of God
    of the United Kingdom of Great-Britain, and
    Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, and of
    the United Church of England and Ireland on Earth
    the Supreme Head.

    To all to whom these Presents shall come,
    Greeting.

    Know ye that We, of our special grace,
    certain knowledge and mere motion, have given and granted, and by these presents, for Us, Our Heirs and Successors, do give and grant unto James Gillies, James Gillies, Donald Gillies, Angus Gillies and John McFarlane all of Sydney in the County of Cape Breton Yomen, one thousand acres of land situated lying and being in said County in the several lots and parcels herein described, that is to say...

    Journal's & Proceedings of the House of Assembly, 1837
    Halifax; R.Nugent , 1837.
    Colonial Government Journals

    Thurs. 9 th Feb., 1837.

         - A petition of JOHN MCFARLANE , of South West Branch of Margaree River, cape Breton was presented by MR. W. YOUNG & read , stating his having erected a Grist & Shelling Mill at that place with kiln for drying Oats , that the floor of the latter being Hardwood, had taken fire whereby the kiln was destroyed , & praying a grant of a sum of money to enable him to erect a kiln with Sheet Iron flooring.

    The 1871 Canada Census returns give a view of John's holdings.

          Land totaling 530 acres held one dwelling house, two barns or stables, two carriages or sleighs, three carts, wagons or sleds, four plows or cultivators, one horse rake, one threshing machine and a fanning mill. The Return of Cultivated Land tells us John had improved 150 acres, with 115 acres in pasture. One quarter acre was in gardens and orchards. Two acres of wheat yielded 30 bushels of spring wheat. In addition the land had in the past year yielded nine bushels of barley, 150 bushels of oats, 450 bushels of potatoes, 30 tons of hay, 10 bushels of apples and 12 pounds of maple sugar. Live stock and animal products seem to have figured prominently in John's calculations. His production of these products exceeds that of any of his immediate neighbors.
    In 1871 his farm contained or produced two horses over 3 years old, two colts or fillies, two working oxen, thirteen milch cows and fourteen other horned cattle. In addition the farm contained 60 sheep and eight swine. Five cattle, ten sheep and three swine were killed or sold for slaughter or export. Seven hundred ten pounds of butter and four hundred thirty pounds of home-made cheese were produced, as was eighty-eight pounds of wool and eighty-nine yards of home-made cloth and flannel. In addition the farm accounted for twenty muskrat skins. The Return of Products of the Forest tells us that John's farm produced fifty-two cords of fire-wood. Then as now the Margaree River helped to provide. John reported that he had eighteen fathoms of nets and seines of all sorts which allowed him to produce one barrel each of salmon, eels and trout.

    In 1888 it and that of his brother Angus were described as the best looking farms in North Inverness.

    John and his family did not achieve this level of prosperity without reverses. "He met with many losses in his early days of housekeeping. In the space of three years he lost by fire two beautiful houses, a large barn full of hay and wheat, together with eighteen head of cattle, and a pair of horses. He was always remarkable for his coolness and discretion. When his last house was burned he was working in the woods and hurried home with his broad axe on his shoulder. When assured of the safety of his family from the flames, he turned to the few people present and said 'plenty of wood in Cape Breton to make another house'.

    John along with his brother Angus, who had a grant of land next to him, erected the first grist mill in the area. Angus was ever after known as 'The Miller'.

    It appears that along with his other concerns, John took an interest in politics. "He was the confidential crony of the late lamented Sir Wm. Young in his campaign in this county and was the leader of the 500 Scots who marched into Cheticamp in 1832, with their banners floating in the breeze, and the sound of the pibroch rending the air, stirring the hearts of the gallant sons of Albion, but also terrorizing the sons of Gaul, there was no resistance given. The day passed quietly, and on the poll being closed, Young was elected and Smith defeated."

    John appears to have been a Christian in deed as well as word. "His home was the home of the poor, he was a man of few words, and many deeds, to the needy, the widows, and the orphans, he delighted to give; and with the sorrowing he was an everready sympathizer. As a citizen he did his duty conscientiously, faithfully and without ostentation. As a Christian he was always at the post of duty, and everready to do and give for the good of the church and his fellow man; and as a husband and a father while strict to duty and true to conviction, he ruled in love, with that beaming kindness and cheerful attention, that made home a great blessing, an earthly attraction to his family.

    According to the 1871 Canada Census John could read and write.

    -(See exhibit for entire text)
    -.6
  • Death*: He died after 1813 in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.7
  • Biography*: His birthplace is said to have been Druim Lighart. Druim Lighart is a site not marked on the Ordnance Survey map, but it is close to the line of the modern West Highland Way as it swings past Inveroran and on towards Victoria Bridge and the old military road to Glen Coe.

         "His parents and all his people were Presbyterians. Dougald was a precocious lad and at the head of his class in school. There is a family tradition that the stories told him by his pastor, when teaching him his catechism, had something to do with his change in religion....

         When Dougald had finished his school days in "Gleann Urchaidh" he left home and shaped his course toward the north and west. He was soon engaged as schoolteacher in one of the districts of Knoydart. While in this situation the blue eyes of a neighboring Cloe took possession of his imagination and inspired his day-dreams. Margaret MacDonell, who had made him her captive, was possessed in her proper person of the graces and goodly gifts that generally play havoc with the mental fortifications of bards and pedagogues. Besides, she belonged to one of the best families in the district; she was a daughter of "Fear Chrolem", and granddaughter of the Laird of the Scots - septs of the Glengarry family. She was a sister to the famous Colonel John MacDonell, "Spanish John" as he was called in Canada, who died in Cornwall, Ontario, in 1820.

         Dougald MacFarlane was married in Knoydart, Scotland, to Margaret MacDonell, and was received into the Church at the same time."

    Dougald and Margaret's children were born and raised in Glenfinnan. But this was a time of great disruption in the Highlands. "In one year alone fifty-four emigrant ships sailed from the western sealochs. Though some of the emigrants were the families of soldiers who had fought in the Americas, and who had chosen to settle there on grants of land, most were led and organized by small tackmen who wished to escape the rack-renting of their chiefs. - - - A growing population, a decaying economy, recurrent famines and bitter poverty made exile inevitable for increasing numbers. - - -

    From the beginning the emigrants were the victims of speculators and ship masters, of typhus, cholera and dysentery. - - -

    One of the most successful contractors was George Dunoon of Fort William who, with his partners, made a comfortable fortune shipping Glengarry and Strathglass people across the Atlantic to Pictou in Nova Scotia. - - -

    Conditions aboard the emigrant ships were seldom better than abominable - - -.

    In the summer of 1801, George Dunoon advertised the sailing of the Sarah and the Dove from Fort William to Pictou. Had the laws then governing slave-ships applied to these emigrant vessels they would not have been allowed to carry more than 489 passengers. Dunoon filled the tiny holds with 700, emigrants from Lord Reay's country, from the clan-lands of Seaforth, Fraser and Cameron. If they believed his promise that in Nova Scotia they would find a tree that supplied fuel, soap and sugar (he probably meant the maple) they may have found the nightmare voyage endurable, but it is unlikely. Forty-nine people died on the Sarah alone, and the suffering of all was so terrible that it was remembered in Nova Scotia for more than a century."

    "He [Dougald] and his family came to America in the year 1801, in the "Dove of Aberdeen". The parents, with the younger members of the family, remained at the Gulf, while the grownup boys were preparing a home for them at the South River. They had a family of four sons and five daughters.

         Among the first settlers at South River was Dougald MacFarlane."8,4,9

    Mabou Pioneers Volume I page 256 says:

    Cameron, "Aonghas Mac Eoghain"
    ANGUS Cameron was, by paternal descent, the son of Ewan, son of Dougald, son of Ewan of Achintore, son of Lauchlin Cameron of Suinart. His mother was Margaret Gillis, daughter of Donald of Morar and his wife, Catherine MacGillvray of Arisaig, Scotland.

    There is no mention of an ANGUS son of Ewan (or Hugh) in any of the following references except as shown:

    RANKIN, Rev. D.J., A History of the County of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, pages 85-86

         Isabel Nigh'n Dhughaill (Isabel # 89, daughter of Dougald MacFarlane) and Maireread, wife of Ewen Cameron (Margaret Gillis, # 49), were first neighbors, while both lived, and experienced the hardships of pioneer life in raising large families. I may here quote again from an article quoted before, just to give us an idea of life then:
         "No, the work of women in those days was no maiden's play. Let me cite only one instance to prove this. There were no automobiles, no carriages of any kind, no horses, no roads or paths, nothing better than blazes on trees to guide the traveller (sic) through the dense forest. On a certain occasion Margaret and a neighbor of hers, Mrs. Angus McPherson, better known as Ishabel Nigh'n Dhugaill, another estimable woman, finding their homes needed something more than milk to help down the good potatoes, proceeded to the harbor, a distance at least ten miles, guided by the indespensable (sic) "blaze" through the woods and by the winding course of the river. Early in the evening they returned home, each with a half-barrel of good fat herring, in a sack on her shoulders. Think of this ease loving sports of to-day. Think of it, all you who have been brought up upon the level plains, transformed from the forest by them, and are yet dissatisfied notwithstanding all your travelling facilities and other modern conveniences; all of you who through a spirit of unrest, born of a desire for greater things, for wealth or gaiety or some similar craving, that the mind never sees satisfied, seek other lands and forsake the land of your birth and the cradle of your faith."7
