Alexander McDouall was reportedly a prosperous farmer and corn merchant in Wigtownshire, and also built the harbour at Drunmore in Kirkmaiden Parish about 1810. By 1826 he had run into financial difficulties and the harbor property was sequestered. Alexander, along with his partner Thomas McChlery, lost all his material possessions. After his farm was surrendered to the Earl of Stair, Alexander remained on his property as a tenant until December 1828. In 1828 Alexander emigrated to New Brunswick, his trip financed by his wife's father. He brought several of his children, along with his brother Peter (Patrick).
