BOOK - The Kennedys, MacDiarmids, McDermids, Munros and other Glengarry - Stormont Pioneers
By R.B. (Bob) Campbell and Douglas McDermid
Published by Mika Publishing, Belleville, 1986

Hardcover...75.95 (C$)

This book traces the roots or certain Kennedys, MacDiarmids, Munros and other Scottish families who settled in the counties of Glengarry and Stormont In the easternmost part of the province of Ontario. In many cases it provides the exact lot number and township concession where these pioneers settled. The family history not only traces their descendants but also in many cases narrates their contribution to the social and cultural life or their community and province.

From the Introduction:
    "The first part of the book is a chronicling of events most of them battles and wars which took place in Western Europe and North America following that watershed event In English - Scottish history - the April 1746 Battle of Culloden. The Scottish Highlanders had been the backbone of Scottish resistance in successfully repulsing attempts by England for over 300 years to dominate Scotland. Atter the decisive military victory at Culloden, the London government's brutality in its treatment of the defeated highlanders and the prohibition of wearing of the tartan achieved its purpose. The formerly rebellious highland chiefs lost their powers and the London government obtained the allegiance of the formerly rebellious clansmen.

    Scottish highlanders played a major role In the British wars that followed the Battle of Culloden. After each decisive battle or peace treaty Scottish and other British soldiers would be discharged from the army and those who chose this option would receive land in Canada, America, Australia or elsewhere in the British Empire.

    In the case of the American War of Independence those British soldiers who remained loyal to the British Crown were given land in Glengarry-Stormont or elsewhere In Canada. Those who settled in Glengarry-Stormont received one hundred acres each along the St. Lawrence River front and two hundred acres further inland. David Munro of Taln Ross-shire (See Part D of this book) first settled with his wife Nancy MacKay at Mapleton In New York state. When the American States declared their independence, David joined the British army and served in the Kings Royal Regiment of New York (KRRNY). After the end of the American War of Independence David and his family emigrated to Canada and obtained land in the west part of Glengarry near Martlntown and in the east part of Stormont near Gravel Hill, Ontario. More about the United Empire Loyalists Is included In Chapter IV of Part A.

    After the peace of Amiens in 1802 and disbanding of some regiments there was the emigration trom Glen Garry Scotland to the "Glengarry Fencibles" and their families and their chaplain the Rev. Alexander MacDonell. They were said to have come in the 1803-1804 period. That was when Hugh Kennedy ancestor of the Kennedys in Part B of this book left Glen Garry Inverness-shire and settled where the village or Apple Hill, Ontario now stands. It is not known for certain whether or not he was a disbanded soldier from the British Army. On the other hand it is likely that John Campbell who settled with his family at Loch Garry In approximately 1802 was a member of the Glengarry Fenclbles discharged in 1802.

    Most of the MacDiarmids and McDermids whose history is described in Part C of this book came to the Martintown area of Glengarry Canada during the 1795-1805 period. It is not known for certain whether or not some of these MacDiarmid settlers were former soldiers who were disbanded after the 1802 Peace of Amiens.

    After the peace that followed the Battle of Waterloo In 1815 more British soldiers were disbanded. Some of the Highlanders who came to Glengarry fought under the Duke of Wellington at Waterloo. Malcolm Campbell ancestor of the Dominionville Campbells settled at Dominionville Ontario In 1816. He served as a Sergeant under Wellington at Waterloo. He emigrated with his wife and four brothers from Killin In Perthshire Scotland. The MacDiarmids, MacDougalls, Campbells and Stewarts who emigrated to Breadalbane Glengarry Canada In 1815 from Killin and Lavers in Perthshire could also have had disbanded soldiers in their group.

    After the end of the Crimean war in 1856 a peace treaty was signed in Paris that affected Scottish highlanders as well as many others. Roderick Campbell and his wire Margaret McLennan of Inverness Scotland had 4 sons who served with the British Forces during the Crimean War. Only one of the four sons (Roderick) survived the war and he was badly wounded. He came to Canada in 1858 with his brother John (the big shoemaker), another brother Kenneth and a sister Jessie. In return for his war service Roderick was given land near Berwick In Finch Township county of Stormont. In conclusion the authors hope that the reader will find Part A of this book an interesting background to the family histories which follow in the latter part of the book.
