DOUGALL + McINNES + TARBET, Renfrew Scotland to Geelong Australia to Kaikoura New Zealand
Mary Dougall married John McInnes in Renfrew, Scotland about 1823.
They had a daughter Catherine McInnes who emigrated to Australia, married Christopher Clemett in Geelong, had 3 children then moved to New Zealand in about early 1860s and had another 4 children in Kaikoura.
One of the sons they named Arthur TARBET Clemett.
I was fasinated in how they got the name Tarbet and much research has revealed an interesting possibility.
In 1822 a Hellen Dougall married a Robert Tarbet in Renfrew, Scotland.
Can you help?
Was Hellen Dougall a sister of the above Mary Dougall
(they married a year apart so the ages seem right) and perhaps Mary's daughter used her uncles name Tarbet when she named her son ???
