Agent of the N.W. Company,” without incident, was then instructed to arrest Kenneth McKENZIE, and John McLOUGHLIN, also accomplished, then told to arrest the remaining NWC partners “in the King’s name,” which met with resistance, but in the end succeeded in arresting Alexander McKENZIE, John McDONALD, Hugh McGILLIES, Simon FRASER, Daniel McKENZIE, and Allan McDONALD; with his family in company put in charge 1 May 1817 of Fort William with a complement of 6 or 7 men; arrested 24 May 1817 on warrant secured by NWC; transported for trial to Sandwich, Upper Canada [Windsor ON] in company with John SPENCER; granted bail; returned to Fife, Scotland by December 1817, where he owned a leased-out farm, Kennoway Parish; returned to Canada by 18 September 1818 when Selkirk, who had ‘occasioned serious financial loss’ and was returning to Scotland, sold McNAB the deed to Baldoon Farm for £2000 Sterling money of Great Britain (£1000, borrowed against the property in Fife, generously allowed to Selkirk 1 year in advance of possession date in 1819); c. 1819 sailed to Scotland to request payment from Lord Selkirk for “Servitude of 2 years and near 3 months Vizt. from 28th July 1816 to 30th October 1818″ (at the rate of £320/ annum, plus interest); met with Selkirk and was told to submit claims to HBC; by February 1819 had been to Edinburgh, where he was asked to join Professor John Leslie’s North Pole expedition with Capt. Basil Hall;  visited HBC London, requesting payment; HBC responded 1819 by letter addressed to him at University of Edinburgh stating that his claims on the Company were not substantiated (he having accepted Selkirk’s word with no formal contract document); in consequence of resulting financial difficulty, terminated medical studies of grandson John BUNN who then sailed to Hudson Bay; McNab sailed from Liverpool to Montreal, Canada; continued to write to Selkirk requesting payment but was ignored; moved to Baldoon with family, obtained supplies on account, borrowed any money he could, began repairing main house, had windmill built; died in debt, of malaria, sometime after May 1819 Baldoon, Upper Canada [ON]; executor of will made submission 1821 to Lady Selkirk’s representative pointing out legal action would be required, for the sake of the children, if amicable means of settlement were not agreed to (£1000 was still owing on Baldoon Farm, but Lord Selkirk had died 1820 still owing McNabb); will probated 1824; Baldoon subsequently subdivided and resold at public auction.

-sp. Jane?. A Cree woman of Hudson Bay; possibly sister of Hannah? married to William RENTON; thus possibly the aunt of  Jane RENTON married to Thomas VINCENT (which by Cree custom meant ‘Mrs. McNAB’ was the ‘mother’ of Harriet VINCENT hence Letitia MACTAVISH-HARGRAVE’s confusion over McNAB–VINCENT family connections); possibly the sister of Margaret (died 1813) married to John THOMAS Sr., and the ‘Mrs. McNab’ who travelled 1814 to Vaudreuil QC with the party attached to John THOMAS Sr. (whom John McNab described as his ‘old friend’); with husband 1816-1817 and at least one child (granddaughter Mary BUNN; but possibly also son John McNAB Jr. and grandson [son of John Jr. and ‘Jennie’ COOK]) during HBC/ Selkirk’s occupation of NWC Fort William; ejected with children from the fort after husband’s arrest, threatened with a search of her possessions but the men detailed to conduct the search declined to do so and William McGILLIVRAY, who had ordered the search, declined to press the issue; while her husband was taken to Upper Canada, apparently stayed at Point Meuron with the children ‘among her relations’ which might have been a reference to a woman there named Violette; upon her husband’s return travelled with family to Vaudreuil QC, where they stayed with the THOMAS family while her husband went to Europe; c. 1819 moved with husband and family to Baldoon; died of malaria 1819 Baldoon [ON].
