An Axle and Two Wheels: Material Culture and Memory in a Sutherland Emigrant Family of the Nineteenth Century

  • Margaret A. Mackay

Abstract


In June 1831 a Mackay family group from Sutherland departed from Scotland on the ship Cleopatra, heading for a district of Upper Canada (later known as Canada West and the present-day province of Ontario), where others from their area had settled in the previous years. There are aspects of their story which may offer useful insights for the ethnologist.
