About Patrick James McKie, Bailie In Minnigaf

Sasine 1664, 1673

"Book of Mackay" states: "Patrick was infeft in Larg in 1662, and had a son John (Galloway Charters)...Patrick and John, father and son were fined for their Covenanting principles, forfeiting their estate in 1680, which came into the administration of the Duke of Queensberry. After the Revolution the estate was restord to John of Penninghame, great-great-grandson of Alexander V."

History of the Lands and Their Owners in Galloway, v 4, p 408, states that Sir Patrick was succeeded by Patrick M'Kie. The degree of relationship is not mentioned. On Jan 22, 1664, he had sasine of the lands and barony of Larg. He is described as the son of Patrick M'Kie of Barjarrock. He was fined about 1660 by the Privy Council (L260) for his adherence to the Presbyterian Church (he was called Patrick M'Ghie of Largie). On 25 May 1664 there was a reversion by Archibald M'Kie in Stronard to Patrick M'Kie of Larg of the land of Stronard. Archibald probably was a brother or near kinsman. Again in June, 1666, there was a reversion by James M'Crae in Palmerstoun to Patrick M'Kie of Larg of the lands of Clongairt, Largspark, etc. He was succeeded by John M'Kie, who probably was his son.

He was the M'Ghie or M'Kie of Larg, who, on the 2d April 1679 was outlawed by the Prelatic Committee for not appearing before them when summoned. He was again called 18th Feb 1680, before the Justiciary Court, and not appearing, was sentenced to be executed when taken, and his property confiscated to his Majesty's (Charles II) use. He happened to be dead when this was issued. His land was then forfeited and seized by the Duke of Queensberry and put in the charge of Hugh Wallace of Ingliston, who kept them in his own possession until the Revolution. -------------------- With a General Sketch of the Early McKee’s Prof. JAMES Y. McKee. PHILADELPHIA: JOSEPH D. McKee. 1892.


Pg. 9 - 10 The first real knowledge we have of the McKees dates from over two hundred years ago, when four brothers bearing that name left Scotland for bonnie England.

There they soon joined the army of William, Prince of Orange, and shortly - afterwards, in 1690, we find them, with the rest of the army, in the northern part of Ireland.

We have been unable to learn the Christian names of these four brothers. All we know of one is that he returned with William's armv to England. where we lose all trace of him. Three were induced to remain in Ireland by grants of land for services rendered.

One married and settled in County Antrim; but even tradition has no further information for us concerning either himself or his descendants

, although from actual knowledge in our possession concerning the other two brothers and their descendants, it seems almost a certainty that he and his family emigrated during the exodus from Ulster to America, about 1735, and were the progenitors of the McKees in Kentucky and Virginia, whose history has been written by George Wilson McKee, Major of Ordnance, U. S. A. ....
