Very very proud of finding my ancestors are from Grishpol coll. Alan Johnston and Mary Morrison baptised Flora Johnston in 1817. I next have Flora in Abbey Renfreshire residing in Edeslie married David McPherson in 1837. Both weavers. David McPherson became a stoker/ then engine keeper? I would love to know more about your beautiful Island. I am so proud that my direct Great grandparents came from this beautiful Island. Xxx Any further information would be amazing.
Thanks for your site. It's been great to visit Coll and see the place where my great-great grandparents came from. They emigrated from Coll to Australia in the 1850s. The rest, as they say, is history! Thanks to all the friendly Coll residents who have helped.
