Valtos Births 1824-1845

The following Valtos births were registered in the Old Parish Register for the Parish of Uig.

Birthdates may be actual, or dates of baptism, or mis-remembered dates of birth recorded a year or more later when the child was baptised. The children are grouped below by family, as near as can be determined, but the groups certainly should not be taken to represent all the children in that family, as children may be on record for another village where the family had lived, or may not have been baptised or at least recorded. The recording of baptisms is known to have been irregular, particular from the mid 1830s.

  1. Hi, I’m researching my family history and I’m looking for a birth year for Donald MacLeod. I have a newspaper clipping saying he was a native of Valtos. I know he was born on April 8, lived to be 88 years old and passed away on his birthday April 8. Donald married Annie Matheson and they had 4 sons and a daughter. From what I’ve gathered three of the sons names were Rev. Murdo MacLeod, Dr. Donald MacLeod and John MacLeod.
    I’m guessing 1800’s because consequent branches of the family tree have the family moving to Canada but I believe Donald spent his entire life in Scotland.
    Any assistance you can provide is much appreciated!
    Thank you,
    Cheryl Findlay
