Descendants of John McDiarmid of Killin Perthshire b. 1747
Many of the McDiarmids who came to Ontario, Canada from the Killin, Perthshire area, and are descended from one of the marriages of John McDiarmid b. 1747 Killin, Perthshire. He had 3 marriages and children from two of then emigrated to Canada. There is also an extensive descendancy of Finlay McDiarmid/Janet McDiarmid who settled first in the Stormont and Glengarry areas of Ontario around the year 1800. All of these McDiarmids were tenant farmers on the Breadalbane estate of the Campbells located on the north side of Loch Tay. Killin was at the southeast corner of the loch, and the Breadalbane castle at the northeast end. All the McDiarmids were inter-realted by kin or marriage, it seems.
