  • Notes 
    • Error alert: There is an unknown error in Mackenzie in this line. The date given for the marriage of Hugh's great granddaughter, Isabella is 1864 and the date for the marriage of her 2nd great grandfather, Neil Munro II of Findon is 1627. That works out to be 237 years to be covered by 4 generations. Either one or both dates are incorrect or there is one or more missing generation.

      Hugh sold Findon to Sir Roderick Mackenzie, and was successively of Kilmuir, Swordale and Kinglochglass.
