The Cree’s of Riccarton lived mainly on Old Street and New Street surrounding the church, and I am lucky enough to still live in the same area and attend the same church they would have attended. The church itself was built in 1823, with its predecessor sitting where the current cemetery sits, made famous by Robert Burns; the minister, Rvd James Moodie, was mentioned in several of his poems.
Most of the buildings on Old and New Street have been replaced including all the homes of my relatives much to my dismay! My grandfather, Peter Doran, was born in his Granny Cree’s house on New Street though this is now where the Glacier Metal works sits.
Would love to connect with people from the same Cree line, especially Riccarton Cree’s.
