Narrative

Duncan McDougall was the only son named in the will of Peter McDougall. He married Barbara Stewart in 1819. The history of Hamilton PEI says their children were John, Marion, Nancy, Dugald, Peter, Margaret, Mary, Elizabeth, Copeland, Jane Ann, Alexander, Sarah, Tamar, Ellen, and Archibald. Although there were no entries in the PEI Baptismal Index, some of their children were listed in old Margate/Princetown church records: John, Marion, Nancy, (large gap) Jane or James, Peter Warren, Elizabeth, Catherine or Copeland, Alexander?, Sarah, and Tamar.

If they were following Scottish naming practices, then naming a first son John seems out of order. I have included Barbara McDougall, from Lot 18, because her age fits, and it would have been a standard practice with so many daughters to name at least one after her mother.

Duncan was not in the 1841 census. In the 1861 census of PEI, Lot 18, Duncan McDougall and his wife were over 60. At home were one male between 6-15, and a male and a female between 16-21. They were all Presbyterians.

The next entry on the census page was for Dougald McDougall. Dougald makes sense as a member of this family because of where he lived, and being named after his mother's father.

The Examiner 13 August 1866: died at Shipyards, Duncan McDougald age 69. Gravestone - died July 19 1866 at age 68

The will of Duncan McDougall names his sons Archibald and Peter, from Lot5; his daughter Ellen, who was unmarried, and his son-in-law John McLean in Lot 9.

After his death Barbara moved to New Brunswick to live with her daughter Ellen, and this was where she died.

There were Duncan MacDougalls in the 1861 census in Lot 18, Lot 7, and Lot 8. A Duncan McDougall died in West Point in 1896 at the age of 80, but this Duncan came from another area of PEI: Duncan MacDougall, son of Archibald and Louise
Birth 15 Aug 1816 in Nine Mile Creek, Queens, PEI
Death 6 Aug 1896 in West Point, Prince, Pe
