Where does this fit in with you?
My memory is failing me! Is this one of the sons of Griffith John of Llwynduris.
There are Articles about the Mackeig Family in the Ceredigion Journals - Available online in NLW JOURNALS.
From Memory the first of the family is described as a Scotch Peddler?
There are several wills for the family at the NLW available on line.
You don’t give any dates for your
The farm has long been called “Scotland”
or “Scotland Hill”. I have the family of William Griffith (d. 1789)
there in the 1770s. His wife Mary Makeig, the widow of Benjamin Makeig and
formerly Mary Jones (m. Benjamin Makeig, 5 Sept 1769). The Makeigs were
formerly associated with Scotland Farm. Benjamin Makeig (or Mikeig) was buried
at Llandygwydd on 24 Nov 1790.
Mary was from Aberporth, Cardiganshire.
The name “Makeig” would appear
to have Scottish roots, I have no further info. It’s possible NLW has a
will for him (I’ve not looked). This might be a starting point if you
wish to take this further.
anyone know anything about Scotland Hill Farm, Llandegwydd, and if the GEORGE
family who once lived there had any Scottish connections please?
