Notes:

1. Andy thought Sam came from a family of twelve. [AB]

2. The 1861 census suggests that by 1861 the eldest 6 children had left home.

3. [1891] 1891 Census. 1891/57/6-7.

Notes on John Buchanan:

1. The John Buchanan who died on 12-Feb-1864 (if that is what 12 ult. means) is very similar to the gravestone "BUCHANAN...John Buchanan died July 11, 1864, Ae. 80. His wife died Jan 11, 1876, Ae. 87. Emigrated from the Isle of Skye in 1803". The other problem is that John appears younger in the 1861 census. (If its the right John.) There is only 1 John Buchanan older than 60 in the 1861 census.

Notes on Marion Nicholson:

1. Parents listed as Scotland-Scotland in 1891 census.

2. Listed as Marion in the St. John's baptism records and as Sarah in the Belfast Book. (Sarah and Marion are both translations of the same Scottish root name.)

Notes on Malcolm Buchanan:

1. Death date is based on cemetery stone.

2. Malcolm in Surrey in 1889 [BB].

Notes on Catherine Buchanan:

1. Parents listed as John Buchanan and Flora Nicholson.

Notes on Flora Buchanan:

1. Parents listed as John Buchanan and Flora Nicholson.

Notes on Samuel Buchanan:

1. Sam came from a very large family, he remembers 12. One of Sam's brothers or sisters (probably a brother) went to Australia. Or perhaps a large number of the family went. They were only in PEI for a short time. [AB] (Twelve listed in the Belfast Book. [CSB])

2. Sam travelled to the Bardadoes and Trinidad (for Molasses?). [AB]

3. Bob R. may have Sam's sea charts. [AB] (He didn't. [CSB])

4. Another Buchanan was in the British Navy. Was an admiral? Could have been Sam's father. [AB]

5. (Second hand from a friend.) The University of Edinborough has restored a property connected with the Buchanans. The Buchanan Priory? Complete with Dog's graveyard where all pets have been buried? [AB]

6. Sam's ship was a three masted schooner called the "Matilda". [AB]

7. Sam was the captain of a blue nose whaler. [MM]

8. Roland left home and joined the navy at 16. [MM] (Believe he was teaching in PEI and NS at that time. [CSB])

9. Sam was the captain of the Empress out of Montague from 1901 to around 1904. Another captain took his place about 1904 so Sam could attend his daughter's wedding. (Mary Ethel.) [DC]

10. Sam purchased his property on September 19, 1891 from Charles Stuart. Sam sold his property to Sadie for $1 on June 2nd, 1924. Document here. Sadie sold the property to Hilda October 10th, 1975. [LID]

11. Sam as captain of the Empress out of Montague appears here.

Notes on Donald Buchanan:

1. In Dunedin in 1889. [BB]
