Early Camerons

These are the earliest records we have of the Cameron family.

William's supposed birth place of "Kilmacrenan, Loch Linnhe X-Scotland" is a combination of two separate errors : (1) Kilmacrenan is not in Scotland but in County Donegal, Ireland, where some Scottish Lynns settled in the first Ulster plantation; and (2) no one as ever been born in Loch anything because a loch is a body of water, not a property or piece of land. His name, reported as William David Cameron Lynn, likewise is a conglomeration of things. In that era in Scotland, it was rare that anyone had even one let alone two middle names. For the Ayrshire Lynn family from which William is believed to have come, first and last name are all that appear in the centuries-long historical Scottish record.
