 Preface

My father, Lewis A McFarland, Jr., together with his sister, Iris Grimmer, had a desire to update, perhaps even complete, the Hancock County McFarland Family genealogy.  It was a large task and he was unable to do so before his untimely death.  I found myself with most of his research and discovered a fascinating story.  My attempt at completing his work is probably not up to his standards but offered nonetheless.  

I cannot claim to have added much value to this work.  Basically I have found a few marriages tying Macfarlanes to other early colonial families.  I have taken the work noted above, that of Daniel Y. McFarland, and several others, glued it together with some of my own words and research and produced what I hope what my dad would like to have seen.  It is not complete, too many of the branches of this tree haven’t been followed, but it is a start.

This is a collection of recollections.  Sometimes there are two or more accounts for the same part of the family tree.  If I could find another, or in some way reconcile the differences, I did.  I make no claim to rigorous research here.  This is my family’s story and I’m sticking to it.


Acknowledgements

Undoubtedly, this work would not have been possible without the efforts of Iris (McFarland) Grimmer, Lewis A. McFarland, Jr., and a host of others.  Thomas Sims McFarland and Daniel Y. McFarland are among them.


Introduction

 

Search any family history long enough and you are bound to find interesting stories.  Apparently my forebears were a rough lot.  Whether fighting English injustice in the highlands and Ireland or carving civilization out of the forests of North America, the Macfarlanes did their part. 

 

I have had my ancestry questioned often and called, among other things; a man of uncertain character (Both stated using more colorful language).  I can honestly claim an unquestioned ancestry and indications are that I, if I am anything like my forebears, am a man of certain character, but let us not follow where that leads. What follows is a brief look a family with a rich and colorful history: mine.

 

 


Origins of the Clan Macfarlane[1]

 

One of the loveliest regions in the West Highlands at the present hour is the district about the heads of Loch Long and Loch Lomond, which was, for some five centuries, the patrimony of the Chiefs of the MacFarlane Clan. With the waves of one of the most beautiful sea lochs of the Clyde rippling far into its recesses, and the tide less waters of the Queen of Scottish Lochs sleeping under the birch clad slopes on another side, while high among its fastnesses, between the towering heights of Ben Arthur and Ben Voirlich, shimmers in a silver lane the jewel-like Loch Sloy, this ancient territory could not but in the course of centuries produce a race of men instinct with the love of the mountains and the moors, and all the chivalrous qualities which go to make the traditional character of the Highlanders of Scotland. This is nothing less than fact in the case of Clan Farlan, for in origin the Clan was not Highland at all, and only became so, like a number of others, by long residence among the mountains and the lochs, and by intermarriage with native families of Celtic descent.

It is true that many tellers of the story of the clan seek to derive its origin amid the silver mists of a mythical Celtic past. According to one account, the clan takes descent from a hero who arrived in Ireland with the first colonists from Spain, and whose descendants afterwards settled in Scotland. MacIan, who mentions this tradition, wisely concludes that it "must be classed among the Milesian Fables." This tradition was amplified in a paper read by the Rev. J. MacFarlane Barrow at a meeting of the London branch of the Clan Society, and printed in the Clan MacFarlane Journal for January, 1914. Quoting from a MS. of the monks of Glenmassan, this writer declared that in the veins of the MacFarlans ran "the blood of Earls, and not Earls only, if it came to that, but of Kings, for was not Alwyn Mor, first Earl of Lennox, the great-grandson of Mainey Leamna, the son of Corc, King of Munster, who was fifth in descent from Con of the Hundred Battles, King of Ireland?"

To descend from these misty altitudes of vague tradition, however, to the realm of ascertained fact, it is recorded by the greatest of Scottish archaeologists, Chalmers, in his Caledonia, quoting from the twelfth-century Simeon of Durham, that the ancestor of the family was the Saxon Arkil, son of Egfrith. This Arkil, a Northumbrian chief who fled to Scotland to escape the devastations of William the Conqueror, received from Malcolm Canmore the custody of the Levanax or Lennox district, and became first founder of the family bearing that title. Alwyn, son of Arkil, was a frequent witness to the charters of David I. and Malcolm IV and was created Earl of Lennox by the latter King. The son, another Alwyn, of the first Earl of Lennox being a minor at his father’s death, William the Lion gave the earldom in ward to his brother David, Earl of Huntingdon, but the young Earl recovered possession before the year 1199. When he died in 1224, he left no fewer than eight sons. Of these, Malduin, the eldest, became third Earl of Lennox, and Gilchrist, the fourth son, obtained from the latter in 1225 a charter of the lands of Arrochar, and became ancestor of the MacFarlans. Along with Clan Donachy, the MacFarlans are said to have been the earliest of the clans to hold their lands by feudal charter. Like other vassals of the Earls of Lennox, the MacFarlan chiefs exercised their rights under the stipulation that all criminals condemned by them should be executed on the Earl’s gallows at Catter.

One of the earliest traditions connected with the family has to do with the great Norse invasion of Hakon, which ended at the battle of Largs in 1263. Previous to that battle, Hakon sent Olaf, King of Man, with sixty ships, up Loch Long. The Norsemen drew their vessels across the narrow isthmus of the MacFarlan country, between Arrochar and Tarbet on Loch Lomond, and the spot is pointed out, at the milestone midway, where the Laird of Arrochar hid his family from the fierce Norse raiders. Duncan, the second Laird of Arrochar, married Matilda, sister of Malcolm, fifth Earl of Lennox—he who was the friend of Wallace and Bruce, who fought at Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn, and fell at Halidon Hill, and there is reason to believe that the Laird of Arrochar and his followers fought under the Earl of Lennox at Bannockburn. It was to the country of Duncan of Arrochar that Bruce escaped on the memorable occasion when he crossed the narrow waters of Loch Lomond, and recited to his men the great romance of Fierabras; and it is pretty certain that Duncan would be one of the little group of the Earl’s hunting party which shortly afterwards met the King, and hospitably entertained him and his little army, in the hour of their need, with the fruits of the chase.

The son of Duncan and Matilda was named Malcolm, probably after his uncle the Earl; and Malcolm’s son, the fourth Laird, was named Pharlan, which has been translated Bartholomew. It is from this individual that the family has since taken their surname of MacFarlan. Pharlan’s son Malcolm had a charter confirming him in possession of the lands of Arrochar in 1354, and his son Duncan, the sixth Chief, married Christian, daughter of Sir Cohn Campbell of Lochow, and died shortly before 1460. His son John married a daughter of Sir James Mure of Rowallan, and sister of Elizabeth Mure, first wife of King Robert II. The next Chief, Duncan, was served heir to his father in 1441, and the next, Walter, married a daughter of the second Lord Livingstone.

Meanwhile the original house of Lennox had suffered a tragic catastrophe. Donald, the sixth Earl, had left only a daughter, Margaret. She married her cousin, Walter de Fassalane, on the Gareloch, who, as the earldom appears to have been a female fief, became seventh Earl in right of his wife. The son of this pair, Duncan, eighth Earl, was again the last of his line. His daughter Isabella became the wife of Murdoch Stewart, Duke of Albany, grandson of King Robert II., and for a time Regent of Scotland. On the return of James I. from his long captivity in England, Duke Murdoch, his two sons, Walter and Alexander, and his father-in-law Duncan, Earl of Lennox, were all arrested, tried, and executed on the Heading Hill at Stirling. Afterwards, on the death of the Duchess Isabella in 1460, her youngest son’s son, Lord Evandale, held the earldom in life rent till his death. Upon that event occurred the Partition of the Lennox; one-half of the territory went to the daughters of Earl Duncan’s second daughter, Margaret. These daughters were married respectively to Napier of Merchiston and Haldane of Gleneagles. The other half went to Elizabeth, Earl Duncan’s youngest daughter, married to Sir John Stewart of Darnley. In 1473 Darnley obtained a royal precept declaring him heir, not only of half the lands, but also of the title of Earl of Lennox.

Meantime the heir-male of the old Earls of Lennox was the Chief of MacFarlan, and some writers on the Clan suppose that the latter took the field in order to assert his claim, and suffered the loss of his territory in consequence. But there appears to have been no break in the line of the Chiefs. The idea that a cadet assumed the chieftaine appears to have arisen from a later Latin charter in which Sir John MacFarlan was styled "Capitaneus de Clan Pharlane." This, Skene in his Highlanders of Scotland took to mean Captain of Clan Farlan, but Dr. MacBain, editor of the latest edition of the work, points out that Capitaneus is really the Latin for Chief. As a matter of fact, Andrew MacFarlan of Arrochar married a daughter of John, first of the Stewart line of the Earls of Lennox, and his successor, Sir John MacFarlan already alluded to, was knighted by James IV., and fell along with the Earl of Lennox himself at Flodden Field.

The Chiefs of MacFarlan, indeed, appear to have been zealous supporters of the Lennox Earls. It was probably in this character that, shortly after Flodden, the MacFarlans attacked the castle of Boturich on the south shore of Loch Lomond, which was part of the ancient property of the earldom that had fallen to the share of Haldane of Gleneagles. The incident is narrated in Sir David Lindsay’s well-known poem, "Squyer Meldrum." The Laird of Gleneagles had fallen at Flodden, and the Squyer was making love to his widow in Strathearn when news came that her castle of Boturich was being attacked by the wild MacFarlans. Forthwith the valiant Squyer got his forces together, and rode to the rescue, driving off the marauders and securing the fair lady’s property.

The next Chief, Andrew the Wizard, has recently been made the hero of a romance, The Red Fox, by a member of the Clan. He married a daughter of the Earl of Glencairn, and his son Duncan, who married a daughter of Lord Ochiltree, was an active supporter of the Regent Lennox during the childhood of Queen Mary. The MacFarlans, indeed, were among the first of the Highland clans to accept the Protestant form of worship. When Lennox, afterwards father of Queen Mary’s husband, Darnley, took arms in 1544 to oppose the Regent Arran and the Catholic party, the MacFarlans, under Walter MacFarlan of Tarbet, joined him with 149 men. These were Cearnich or light-armed troops, provided with coats of mail, two-handed swords, and bows and arrows, and it is recorded that they could speak both English and Erse, or Gaelic. Three years later, in 1547, the Chief himself fell, with a large number of his Clan, at the battle of Pinkie.

It was the next Chief, Andrew, who became famous by the part he played in fighting on the side of the Regent Moray at the battle of Langside in 1568. According to the historian Holinshed, "The valiance of ane Heiland gentleman named MacFarlan stoode the regent’s part in great stede, for in the hottest brunte of the fighte he came up with 200 of his friendes and countrymen, and so manfully gave in upon the fiankes of the Queen’s people, that he was a great cause to the disordering of them. This MacFarlane had been lately before condemned to die for some outrage by him committed, and obtayning pardon through the suite of the countess of Moray he recompensed that clemencie by this piece of service now at this batayle." MacFarlan’s neighbours, Colquhoun of Luss and the Laird of Buchanan, also fought on the side of the Earl of Moray at Langside. For his part, MacFarlan received from the Regent the right to wear a crest consisting of a demisavage proper, holding in one hand a sheaf of arrows, and pointing with the other to a crown, with the motto, "This I’ll defend."

This was the most turbulent period of the Clan’s history, when the frequent raids made by its members upon the lowlands brought them an unenviable notoriety. From the fact that these raids usually took place on clear nights, the full moon came to be known over a considerable part of the western lowlands as "MacFarlan’s lantern." Further, the Clan’s "gathering" was significantly "Thogail nam Bo," "lifting the cattle." The slogan of the Clan was" Lochsloidh," "The Loch of the Host," so named from the fact that the gathering-place of the MacFarlans was upon the shores of that sheet of water. The Laird of MacFarlan appears in the rolls of chiefs made out in 1587-94 with a view to enforcing the law, which made each chief accountable for the peaceful conduct of his followers. In the latter year they appear along with the MacGregors in the statute for the punishment of  “.. theft, reiff, oppression, and sorning”. The MacFarlans also have been accused of a part in the assassination of Sir Humphrey Colquhoun in his castle of Bannachra in Glenfruin in 1592, though, according to the diary of Robert Birrell, burgess of Edinburgh, quoted in Irving’s History of Dunbartonshire, the assassination was the work of Colquhoun’s own brother John.

In July 1624, many of the Clan were tried and convicted of theft and robbery. Some were punished, some pardoned, and a number were removed to the uplands of Aberdeenshire and to Strathaven in Banffshire. Among other septs of the Clan are the Allans or MacAllans, settled in Mar and Strathdon, and a large number of others are enumerated by the Loch Lomondside chronicler, Buchanan of Auchmar. They assumed the names of Stewart, M’Caudy, Greisock, MacJames, M’Innes, and others.

The origin of one of the names of septs of the Clan, that of the Mac-an-Oighres or Macnaires of the Lennox, is said to have been as follows. One of the chiefs left his second wife a widow with one son, while the heir by his first wife was vain and a little weak-minded. The younger brother owned a beautiful grey horse, and on one occasion, the elder, setting out for Stirling, desired to ride it in order to make a good appearance. The stepmother, a Highland Rebecca, refused the loan on the pretext that the steed might not come safely back, and at last the young Laird signed a deed agreeing to forfeit the lands of Arrochar to his half-brother if the horse were not returned. The stepmother thereupon bribed the groom to poison the horse while away. This was done, and her son entered upon possession of the estate. The Clan, however, refused to accept him as their Chief, and some years later the treacherous document was legally annulled and the lands restored to the rightful heir. From this incident certain MacFarlans were known to a recent time as Sloichd an Eich Bhain, "descendants of the white horse," while those who supported the heir took the name of Clann an Oighre.

John, the son and successor of the Chief who fought at Langside, founded an almshouse at Bruitfort on Loch Lomondside, opposite Eilean Vow, and endowed it as a hostelry for passing travellers. His son Walter was a strong supporter of Charles I. in the Civil War, and in consequence had his castle destroyed by Cromwell’s men, and was fined 3,000 merks. John, the grandson of Walter, again, took part against the Stewarts in the Revolution of 1688, and was Colonel of a volunteer force raised in his neighbourhood. His son and successor, Walter, was famous as an antiquary, and among other works the Lennox Chartulary survives only in his transcript. When he died in 1767, his library was purchased by the Faculty of Advocates, and is still of much use to antiquarian students. His materials were used by Douglas in his Peerage of Scotland, and his portrait hangs in the museum of the Society of Antiquaries. Alexander MacFarlan, the brother of the antiquary, was a successful merchant in Jamaica, becoming one of the assistant judges of the island, and a member of the Legislative Assembly. He was an eminent mathematician and Fellow of the Royal Society and at his death in 1755 left an interesting collection of instruments to Glasgow University.

William, the Chief who succeeded the antiquary Walter in 1767, was a physician in Edinburgh. He had three sons and three daughters. John, the eldest, who succeeded, married Katharine, daughter of James Walkinshaw of Walkinshaw, and, among others of a family, he had Margaret Elizabeth, who died 12th May, 1846, aged 29. A monument on the west side of Grey Friars Church, Edinburgh, narrates that "at the period of her decease she was the lineal representative of the ancient and honorable house of MacFarlan of that Ilk."

It was in 1785, in the time of the last-named Chief, John that the Arrochar estate was brought to a judicial sale. It was purchased by Ferguson of Raith for £28,000, and at a later day was acquired by Colquhoun of Luss for £78,000.

The extinction of the house of the Chiefs is associated by tradition with a curious incident. MacFarlan, it is said, had on the waters of Loch Lomond a famous flock of swans with which the luck of the family was associated. In the time of the last Chief, one Robert MacPharrie, who had the second sight, declared that the days of the Chiefs of Arrochar were numbered, and that the sign of this event would be the coming of a black swan to settle among MacFarlan’s swans. Strangely enough, soon afterwards, a black stranger was seen among the other birds on the loch, remaining for three months before it disappeared, and it was very shortly after this that the barony passed out of the hands of the MacFarlan Chiefs for ever.

Among the many distinguished later members of the Clan was Principal Duncan M’Farlane of Glasgow University, Moderator of the Church of Scotland at the time of the Disruption, who had the honor of conducting Queen Victoria over Glasgow Cathedral and College in 1842. While he was minister of Balfron, he was among the guests invited to meet Sir Walter Scott at Ross Priory on Loch Lomondside. On that occasion he happened to narrate to the novelist a folk-rhyme connected with Buchlyvie, then part of his parish. This ran:

"Baron of Buchlyvie,
May the foul fiend drive thee
And a’ to pieces rive thee
For building sic a toun,
Where there’s neither horse meat nor man’s meat,
Nor a chair to sit doun." 

VOL. I.

The authorship of the Waverley novels was then a secret; a few weeks later, when Rob Roy was published, and Mr. MacFarlane saw his verses at the head of the twenty-third chapter, he must have had a shrewd guess as to the authorship.

The main stronghold of the Chiefs of MacFarlane was of course the castle of Arrochar, nothing of which now remains but a fragment of wall. The later Arrochar House, by which it was replaced, is still to be seen embedded in the modern mansion of the name on the shore of Loch Long. Besides this stronghold the Chiefs owned castles on the island of Inveruglas and on Eilean Vow in Loch Lomond, fragments of both of which still remain.

The most recent chapter in the history of the Clan has been the formation of the Clan MacFarlan Society, Inc. (CMSI) The Society had Mr. Walter MacFarlan, D.L., Glasgow, as its Honorary Vice-President, while its acting President was Mr. James MacFarlan, representative of the Gartartan branch of the ancient family of the Chiefs, descended from Sir John MacFarlan, who fell at Flodden. One of the tasks, which the Society has set itself, is the investigation of claims to the chiefship, which has been obscure for more than a century. The current President, at this writing, is Michael Macfarlane of Valley Village, California, USA.  CMSI is attempting to acquire a building near Arrochar to hold a museum and heritage center.

 McFarlands in North America 

 

For the most part, early McFarland migration to North America was from the Ulster region of Ireland.   The English had ‘encouraged’ a migration from Scotland to Northern Ireland in the 1600s by offering 100 year leases, a large number settling in the Ulster area.  It is known that many of the Macfarlane clan migrated ca. 1610.  These Scots were to a large degree unappreciated by the Irish there present.  

A lack of records in the Ulster area for this period, makes it difficult, if not impossible, to trace the relationship of these Scots-Irish to their highland families.  For a more in depth study of the circumstances of the Scots residing in Northern Ireland, particularly as they relate to the eventual migration to North America, please see Scotch Irish Pioneers (1910) by Charles Knowles Bolton.

As the leases began to expire, the economic, religious and political climates in Northern Ireland were such that many Scots believed leaving was better than the alternatives.  In 1718 a large group of the Scots-Irish in Northern Ireland sent one of their Presbyterian Ministers, the Rev. Mr. William Boyd, to Gov Samuel Shute of Massachusetts with a petition asking if they would be encouraged to settle in his jurisdiction.  There were some 320 Scots who signed this petition, dated 26 March 1718 (some names are now faded).  Receiving assurances from Gov. Shute that they would be welcome, the Scots left Ireland in five ships, with their ministers.  These’ Scots-Irish’ were the first wave of a second migration for these families that began in Scotland 100 years earlier.

That these settlers were not exactly welcomed in their new homeland either, no matter what assurances Gov. Shute offered, is no surprise.  Unwelcome in the more populated areas, they tended to move in mass to the edges of civilization.  Perhaps to escape, to live as they saw fit or drawn to easily obtained land.  They were certainly encouraged by their more civilized predecessors to North America to bear the perils of pushing back the boundaries of the wilderness.

Still, of a highland mind, no matter their migrations of the past 100 years, and of a clannish nature, the families of this early American adventure stuck together.  The founding names, Patten, Coburn and McFarland, along with many others associated with early settlements of Scots-Irish, turn up many times in the following generations, as these original families pushed the boundaries of civilization, building towns in the wilderness throughout New England and as far south as South Carolina and Georgia. 

The McFarland Scots, who were from Ardstraw, Co. Tyrone, Ulster, Ireland, had not signed the petition to Gov. Shute but they joined the group from the Bann Valley who came at this time.

The earliest reference to a Macfarlane arriving in America from Ulster is James McFarland in 1717.  His father Daniel and family came the next year, settling initially in Worcester, MA.  Also arriving from the Ulster area were Robert (1720) and his sons Robert and James, who settled in Chester Co. Pennsylvania, and John (1720) and his sons, John and Andrew, who likely settled in Boothbay.   There is evidence that this John was brother to the aforementioned Daniel, both apparently from Ardstraw, Co. Tyrone.  There was a Duncan McFarland that died in Boston in 1696. His relationship to other McFarland’s listed here is unclear.

In addition to the large number of Mcfarlands from the Ulster area, there came several from Scotland itself.  Notable of these was the son and heir of the last Macfarlane laird, Hugh Norman MacFarlane, and Purde Macvarlo (Mcfarlin).  Hugh was a rather late arrival (late 1700s), while Purde arrived ca. 1660.

 

 

 

 


The Family of Purde McVarlo 

 

1. Purde McVarlo (Purthe MacFarlin) arrived in North America sometime around 1660, settling in Hingham, Plymouth County, MA. There he purchased land from the town of Hingham in 1669, near the Weir River located off East Street near Hull Street.  Records found in Hingham’s Old Ship Church indicate that Purthe contributed to the building fund.  It appears that he was considered one of the founders of Hingham and he and his family are buried behind the Church. 

 

He married Patience Russell on 3 July 1667.   They were said to have had 9 girls and 3 boys and their known children were:

 

 (2.) Patience, b. 3 July 1668; (3.) Margaret, b. 26 Dec. 1669, m. 26 May 1690 Daniel Stodder; (4.) Martha, b. 15 Jan. 1671, m. 20 Dec. 1698 Matthew Keen;  (5.) John, b. 7 Mar 1673/4;  (6.) James, b. 11 Aug 1675, m. 6 June 1710 Sarah Lane;  (7.) Mary, b. 2 July 1677;  (8.) Hannah, b. 23 Mar 1678, m. 19 Jan 1702-3 Elias Magoon;  (9.) Sarah, b. 7 Mar. 1681;  (10.) Abigail, b. 10 Feb. 1863, m. 21 June 1722 David Beal;  (11.) Mary, b. Apr. 1689;  (12.) Solomon, b. 8 Nov. 1691, m. 1722 Susann Huet (Huit)

 

 (6.) James Macfarlin

 

James Macfarlin, son of Purthe and Patience (Russell) Macfarlin, married Sarah Lane on 12 Dec. 1710.  Their Children were:

The Family of Daniel McFarland[2] (ca. 1655 – 1738)

 

(59.)  Daniel McFarland and several of his grown family arrived in Boston, MA on 4 August 1718, aboard the ‘William’, Archibald Hunter, Master, sailing from Colerain, Ireland.  The McFarland family first settled in Marblehead, MA.  On 26 Oct. 1727, Daniel and his son, Andrew, bought 185 acres in the southern part of Worcester, MA, near Prospect Meadow.   One of the 5 groups of Scots-Irish who arrived in 1718 had already settled there.  On 13 Jan. 1732 Daniel deeded 91 acres to his son John, in return for life support.  On 16 April 1736 John sold his 91 acres to James Hood for 240 pounds and, after the death of his father Daniel in 1738, moved to Pemaquid, Maine.  Daniel and his wife Margaret (Jacques), b. 1658 in Chesnay, Eure Et Loire, France d. 1718, had 10 children, all of whom were born in Ireland.    They were:

 

(60.) James, b. ca. 1698, d. 1742; (61.) Margaret, b. 11 Mar 1688, m. a Campbell;  (62.) Andrew, b. ca. 1690, d. 4 Jun 1761, m. ca 1718 Rebecca (Gray);  (63.) Daniel, b. 14 May 1690;  (64.) John, b. ca. 1694, m. Margaret;  (65.) Elinor, b. ca. 1696, d. in Pelham, MA, m. Samuel Gray;  (66.) Margery, b. ca. 1700, m. a McKelvy;  (67.) Patience;  (68.) Elizabeth; (69.) Samuel

 

It is believed that John McFarland of Boothbay, Me., was the brother of Daniel McFarland of Worcester, Ma.  John’s sons, John and Robert, accompanied him from Ardstraw, Co. Tyrone, in 1722. 

 

 (60.) James McFarland    (ca. 1698 – 1742)

 

James McFarland came to America before his father Daniel and other members of his family.    He originally came to America with Capt. Robert Temple in 1717, he who had come to Boston to settle as a gentleman farmer.

 

James visited Connecticut and the lands of the Pejepscot Co., in the Brunswick area.  On his return to Boston he was taken into the Pejepscot enterprise.  Capt. Temple’s intent being to transport settlers from Northern Ireland as part of this enterprise, it is likely that James returned to Ireland to encourage his father, Daniel, in that regard.  In 1717 James McFarland had a lot in Brunswick Village.  He soon moved across the river to Topsham, where he owned five lots. 

 

In 1722, Lovewell’s Indian War broke out and most of the settlers in Brunswick and Topsham abandoned their homes.  James McFarland, of Topsham is one of those known to have stayed.  His son, James and family retreated to Marblehead, MA, where his grandfather Daniel was then living.

 

James served in the Indian wars 1 June to 22 Nov 1725 in the company of Capt. Joshua Moody.  Also in the company, and listed next to him, were Wm. Stinson and Jno Malcum, also of Brunswick.

 

In Dec. of 1729, he signed the petition of settlers of Georgia (Maine) to Col David Dunbar, Commander and Settler of the Province of Georgia (Maine) for a township on the east side of the Kennebec River and along Montsweag Bay.  44 men of the Brunswick-Topsham area signed this petition.  He signed his name James McFarland.  He died in Brunswick in 1742, where his son James lived.  His children were:

 

(71.) John; (72.) James, b. ca. 1700, d. ca 1761, m. Mary; (73.) Samuel

 

(72.) James McFarland    (ca. 1700 – 1761)

 

James McFarland was about 17 years old when he came to America from Ireland with his father and brother(s).  When Lovewell’s Indian War broke out he moved his wife (Mary) and children from Topsham to Marblehead, MA.  In 1728 they moved back to Maine.  He bought 95 acres from James Stinson, with the Androscoggin River as one of its boundaries and lying on both sides of the road from Fort George to Maquoit.  In 1740 he built a 2-story blockhouse at the corner of Maine and Mason Streets. 

 

In 1735, James signed a petition to the MA General Court for Brunswick to become a township.  The MA General Court decided to dismantle Fort George in 1737.  James was one of 5 signers of a petition, representing the 25 families then living in Brunswick, that Fort George be continued.  Since Brunswick was incorporated in 1737, these 5 men were probably Selectmen.  James signed his name James McFarland.

 

In 1739 he received a deed for 200 acres from Benjamin Larrabee, Esq., agent of the Pejepscot Proprietors.  In 1742 he received 2 more deeds from Larrabee, each for 206 acres. 

 

James served in Capt. Adam Hunter’s Company.  Indians killed him ca. 1761.  He and his wife, Mary, had 4 children.  They were:

 

(74.) James, b. 1720, d. 1746, m. 1740 Isabella (Means); (75.) John; (76.) Margaret, b. ca 1724;  (77.) Eleanor, d. ca. 1769, m. 1749 Capt. William Patten

 

(74.) James McFarland    (1720 – 1746)

 

James McFarland was born in 1720, in Topsham, Maine, married Isabella (Means) in 1740, in Biddeford.  James was slain by Indians in April 1746.  His wife and children returned to Biddeford, where her parents still lived.  The young McFarlands grew up there.  In 1747 the town of Brunswick rented the McFarland garrison house for the use of the Rev. Thomas Dunlap.  Dunlap lived there for several years before having his own house.  The McFarland house was taken down before the close of the Indian War.  James and his wife had 4 children.  They were:

 

(78.) Polly Mary; (79.) James, d. 1816(?), m. 1770 Margaret (Smith);  (80.)  Thomas, d. 1824, m. 1770 Jane (Smith);  (81.) Margaret, believed to have married James Smith of Londonderry, N.H., brother to Margaret and Jane Smith.

 

(79.) James McFarland   (ca. 1741 – 1816)

 

James McFarland, son of James and Isabella (Means) McFarland, married Margaret Smith in 1770.  He was an early settler at Kilkenny stream, Trenton, Maine.  He took up a lot of 54 acres 124 rods on the west side of Skillings River and adjoining the lot his brother Thomas on the south where he engaged in farming and milling.  His farmhouse was located about four rods south of the road and thirty rods from the river. 

 

During the revolutionary war he was first lieutenant in Capt. Daniel Sullivan’s company, Col. Benjamin Foster’s 6th Lincoln Co. Militia Regiment and served at Machias.  His commission was dated 30 April 1777; he was discharged 7 Oct. 1777.  The Company was called out for service three times. 

 

The town records show that James served as selectman of Trenton several years.  Late in life he moved to Grand Manan, N.B., where it is supposed he died around 1816.   His wife died in Trenton in 1833-34. Their children (probably not in order) were:

 

(82.) Robert; (83.) Hannah, d. 1856 in Trenton unmarried;  (84.) Isabella, d. 1831 in Trenton unmarried;  (85.) Sally, b. 29 Apr. 1779, d. 1 Feb 1867, m. Thomas McFarland;  (86.)

(80.) Thomas McFarland[3]  (ca.1743 – 1824)

 

Thomas McFarland, son of James and Isabella (Means) McFarland, married Jane Smith in 1770.  He took up a lot of 43 acres 84 rods located north of the road and adjoining Kilkenny Stream on the east and north.  His title was received from the DeGregiores.  His house was located about thirty rods west of the stream and twenty from the road. 

 

In June 1779, Thomas McFarland, his brother James, and Allen Hopkins were among the 17 men who signed a petition to the Massachusetts General Court from the residents of Union River, asking for armed vessels, troops, etc., for their defense.  Thomas was a private in the expedition against Castine in 1779.  He was in the detachment from Col. William Jones Regiment Militia under Capt. Benjamin Plummer, serving in Col. Samuel McCobb’s Massachusetts Regiment from 6 July to 24 Sept. 1779.

 

In March 1794, the inhabitants of Union River signed a petition to the Massachusetts General Court protesting the setting up of a new court at Machias, asking that if one were set up it should be more centrally located.  Thomas was one of the pioneers of Hancock County and served in various town offices many time.  He engaged in farming and lumbering, and was part owner of the mills built on the lower falls; he was also owner of much timber land and of a saw mill built below the upper falls of the Kilkenny which he sold to Abner Lee in 1809.  At the time of his death in Nov 1824 he was living with his son David.  Apparently he had attended some kind of meeting and a short time after his return home, simply dropped dead.  His wife, Jane had died about 2 years previously.  They had 11 children, who were:

* Indicates the genealogy of the editor.

[1] There are several different written histories of the early Clan Macfarlin and most vary to some degree from each other.  The history presented here appeared, almost in its entirety, along with other accounts, on the Electric Scotland web site at http://www.electricscotland.com.  A few minor changes have been made to make it consistent with other accounts.  The authorship of this account is unknown.

[2] From "The Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy" by Virkus, Vol. V, 1933 page 335. Library of Congress call # CS69.V814 8- Daniel McFarland (1660 - 1738); whose ancestors, of Clan MacFarlane, moved from Argylshire, Scotland, to Ireland ca. 1610, where spelling of the name changed from MacFarlane to McFarland, came from Ireland to Boston, 1716; settled at Marblehead, Mass. moved to Worcester, 1727.

 

Ships information from 1718 mentions Daniel and his children, James, Andrew, Patience, John and Daniel. . In his will, Daniel mentioned his daughter, Margaret (Campbell), still living in Co Tyrone, Ireland.

[3] Thomas McFarland will be shown to be ancestor of most McFarlands of Hancock County, Maine.  His descendents include Daniel Y. McFarland whose work is a primary source of information for this genealogy.

[4] Book 1, Page 266 Warren County, Ohio lists a Daniel McFarland in 1822 but family records indicate he died 2 May 1844.

[5] William Wick’s death is noted elsewhere as 29 Mar. 1850.
