Hugh Munro (Kiltearn)

In February 1836 the Farm of 'Assint' was advertised for let by the Estate of Inchcoulter, The tenant of Assynt, Hugh Munro, had had to return to Berbice (West Indies) 'so materially injured by the ruinous measures of an unfeeling government'. [Evanton Oral History Project]

This was Hugh Munro [1803-1878], who was born in Edinburgh and died in Durban, South Africa - referred to as 'of Edinburgh and Demerara'. He was a brother of William Munro, a doctor in Berbice, who lived in Inverness.
