From the late 1790s until the late 1800s there were only two MacDougall families in the Judique area. The first resident family with that name was that of Neil MacDougall (b. 1769) from Eigg who emigrated in 1791 and settled at Judique Intervale in the north end of the parish in 1796. The other MacDougall family (four brothers and two sisters) came out from Moidart in 1816 and settled in the south end of the parish at what is now called MacDougall's Mountain in 1817. They had a sister, married to a Mr. Gillis, who had settled in Judique some time before they arrived in 1816-1817.
A third family of MacDougalls moved into the parish in the 1890s. They were not emigrants; they had left the Lake Ainslie area and had acquired two farms in Rear Judique Intervale originally owned by some MacIsaacs.
