  • Notes 
    • at 1841 census at Myreside farm, Inverkeillor, Angus
      at 1881 census at Mill Point, Hastings East, Ontario a Machinest b 1836
      a Machinest who immigrated in 1851 born 3-3-1837.
      However the acuracy of this transcription is in doubt as many of the dates are incorrect and people linked to incorrect wives! He was linked to a Breaugh family

      At death a Machinest Main Street, Deseronto, (no indication of marriage state) parents given as George Whitton and Elizabeth Peacock. This gave me many problems but eventually I realised that this was the correct person.
