Carmichael Family, Glenbuchat Connections.

This enquiry started with the discovery of a grave stone in the Aberdeen Snow Kirk with one of the ‘Gordon of Glenbuchat’ descendants commemorated on a gravestone

In response to this I was contacted by Robert Curry who is a distant relative of the Carmichael family. Robert has kindly supplied the photograph of Archibald Carmichael’s painting (shown on the page with the gravestone) and has now supplied a family tree (shown above) connecting the family with John Gordon ‘Old Glenbucket’ and photographs of the Carmichael family both sons and daughters.

Pictures above show:
1. The Carmichael family tree with the Glenbucket connections, as researched by Robert Curry’s niece Dr Lisa Curry?
2. Group Photograph of the four younger children.

Subsequent pages have details of the sons and daughters of Archibald Carmichael

The family connection with Old Glenbucket is twofold.
Firstly’ Old Glenbucket’s’ daughter Helen married John MacDonnell 12th of Glengarry in 1727-1728. He was the 12th chief of the clan 1721 until 1754.
Secondly, they had a daughter Christina who became the second wife of ‘Old Glenbucket’s’ grandson William.

The family trees are below:
