Catherine, born 1808, was the daughter of John MacLeod and Ann MacAskill of Borve. She became a weaveress and following her parents’ deaths lived at her older sister Effie’s croft in Borve.

In 1854, with the clearance of crofts to make way for Borve Farm, Effie and Catherine were moved to Backhill, where they lived as cottars.
