Archibald J McBean family emigrated to Ontario, Canada from Perthshire Scotland in 1816, but changed their name from McBeath shortly before emigration - any info would be helpful - thank you. Kip McBean
The family emigrated later than 1816 as Archibald McBeath and Margaret Seton had a daughter Margaret born on 22 April 1817 in Moulin, Perthshire. I believe they didn't emigrate until 1818. A Land Grant Petition of Archibald supports this. People often get confused over Margaret as she was the second child of that name, the first one being born on 15 November 1810. but died in early childhood. I am in process of putting my McBeath/McBean family on My Heritage but have not yet got to your ancestors Duncan McBean and Catherine Sutherland.
