MacLEAN Family History
Enquiries to Neil Stanton
Home page for MacLEAN family details.

The name MacLEAN is derived from:-  
This family was extremely mobile ! They moved:-
From Perth to Edinburgh (between 1800 - 1825)
Edinburgh to London (c1850)
London back to Edinburgh (c1853)
Edinburgh to London (by 1859)
London to Glasgow (c 1871)
Glasgow to London (c1879) - finally settled!
N.B. many of these journeys were made with very small children, presumably by the new railways, which were being built in the mid 1800's.
Note - change of spelling of name - all records to c1895 state "McLEAN" since then usually "MacLEAN". It is possible that grandfather William was told at school "That is how you spell your name", and assumed that his teacher was always right !.

Further research on the family has stalled c1800. It is known that 3xgt William was born in Perth about this time, and his father was also William, a shoemaker. However there are two possible birth/ baptism records for Williams whose fathers are William, both are shoemakers. It may be impossible to deduce which entry is correct.
