The Descendants of Malcolm Ramsay and Mary Shuman

The history of the Ramsay Family in Prince Edward Island is a long one. Malcolm Ramsay’s son’s, Malcolm and Edward, came to PEI aboard the Annabelle in 1770 with their Uncle John Ramsay and their 4 cousins, from Scotland. The Annabelle ran aground on September 27, 1770 at Darnley Point sinking the ship and cargo but with no loss of life. The Ramsay’s settled on Lot 18 (Princeton) and from that time on the Ramsay’s have played an important part in PEI ‘s history.

It should be noted that the both the Ramsay family and MacArthur family, farmers and members of the Highland (Gaelic speaking) congregation in the parish of Campbelltown, Argyllshire, Scotland, were on the Annabelle. James Lawson article, "The Princeton Pioneers" suggest that Rev. Charles Steward, pastor of their church and father of the ships owners, recruited families from his congregation. With this background, it is then not surprising to see the amount of inter-marrying between the two clans.
