Greg SMITH & Black Isle HOGs
Mon Mar 23, 2009 10:51am (XFF:

I had a feeling that I'd heard of HOG* people coming from the Black Isle before. I did a search (bottom right of the page) for "Black Isle" and came across this old entry into the Guestbook by Greg SMITH of Wellington NZ.
I've already let Lance know about this thread on the noticeboard which he has replied to.
I'll let him know Greg's old email address. Greg is obviously a cousin of Lance.
Comments: My great great grandfather was a Richard Hogarth from the town of Avoch on the Black Isle in Scotland, where he was a tailor. He emigrated to New Zealand in the 1860's with his wife, Anne Young, and their son John Young Hogarth. On some official records he is named as Richard Hoggart. I would be interested to hear from anyone who could tell me more about the family... either Hogarth or Hoggart. (I believe Hoggart could be a var of Haggart which was a sept of Clan Ross, which would make sense owing to where they came from, and also from the fact that John Young Hogarth named his children Anne Ross, or Malcolm Ross, etc.
