HomePort is pleased to provide
information related to the descendants of Kenneth MacKenzie (1799-1849)
Eliza Macrae (1801-1885). The ancestors of Kenneth
MacKenzie originated in Applecross,
in Ross & Cromarty County,
Scotland, and in 1820 he travelled to
visit Matheson relatives on
Edward Island. He met Eliza and decided to settle down
in Wheatley River.
Applecross was one of the earliest Christian settlements in Scotland, second only to Iona. In the year 673 AD the Irish Monk Maelrubha founded this Christian settlement declaring the surrounding area a sanctuary.
Applecross House, Scotland - built in the years prior to 1740 for the Mackenzies of Applecross

Radio in the 1920's.
Applecross now serves as a summer retreat for the Large family, their
children and grandchildren - all descendants of Kenneth MacKenzie and
