I also have a McColl in the family.  Agnes McColl daughter of John and Mary McColl married Donald Stewart son of Colin Stewart and Euphemia Campbell in 1840 and immigrated to Port Phillip, Victoria, Australia.

Does anyone have connections to our Agnes McColl she was born in Appin and may have been a servant girl to Donald Stewart's parents. We think that Donald's father Colin was a son of Allan Stewart of Shuna Island.

Hi. I am new to the forum. I am trying to find more information about my Mccoll ancestors who originated from Lismore and Appin. I have a Samuel Mccoll wh was born in 1788 at Kenlochlaigh and was the son of Hugh Mcoll and Mary Mclaren (born 1745 and 1749 respectively) who were also born in Kenochlaigh. Samuel married Janet Campbell and moved to Lismore where he was the schoolmaster, postmaster and court officer and i think basically anything else that was going. They had 12 children and i would love to find out more about the family especially if Hugh Mccolls (born 1745) father was active in the Appin regiment.  havnt been able to get any further back than 1745 you see.  Hope to hear from someone and hoping to visit Appin once more in 2014.
