A McLaren Migration

Our McLaren Ancestors - graphic

We are direct descendents of Peter McLaren, born in 1779 in Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland. In 1820 Peter emigrated to Lanark, Ontario, Canada.

Before we look at the families in our direct line, you might want to review Scottish naming protocols.

Now, here are the McLaren families in our Direct Line.

Peter McLaren had an older brother, John, born in 1776. John brought his family from Scotland to Lanark in 1821 and settled on a farm next to Peter. The descendents of both brothers remained close and several of the cousins married. Here are some of the Lanark McLaren families
