Hi folks,

I've been trying for years to find out more about the MacLean side of my family. The family "history" was that my Great-Grandfather Richard MacLean came with his brother from Scotland and settled in Springdale, Newfoundland in the late 1800's. The brother was said to have gone on to Nova Scotia. But according to my research, my Great-Grandfather Richard MacLean was actually born in Carbonear, NL in 1851 (1847 according to his headstone). The surname is listed as "Mclean" in many of these records.

That's where the records concerning Richard MacLean get sketchy. His parents might be Donald and Eliza (Penny) MacLean/Mclean. His full name might be Richard Thomas MacLean/Mclean. Either way, Richard eventually did move to Springdale where he and his wife Jessie (Butt) raised their children, including my Grandfather Daniel MacLean, who in turn eventually settled in Corner Brook, where I grew up.

At this point I'd be grateful for any information about this family, no matter how insignificant the info may seem.

Brent MacLean
