Marriage at Inverscaddle Bay, was the marriage in the brides home?
More likely it was at the small chapel at Conaglen House (Inverscaddle Bay)
part of Conaglen Estate, and that Ewen and/or Mary worked on the Connaglen Estate
which encompassed a rectangle of land including the southern shore of Loch Eil,
to its head, and the western shore of Loch Linnhe, north of Inverscaddle,
and including Trislaig where he was living in 1840.
Conaglen and Trislaig were in Kilmallie Parish, until 1831, when the Quoad Sacra Parish of Ballachulish & Corran of Ardgour was formed. So the change of parishes may not mean the family moved from Trislaig.
In August 1840
Ewen and his family emigrated to New Zealand with all the children except John on the Blenheim which brought out 197 people under the leadership of Laird Donald McDonald.
This gentleman was a representative of the New Zealand Company and a large landholder in the colony and nearly the whole of the body of emmigrants were composed of his own and neighbouring clans, from near Fort William, Invernessshire.

According to her age given when the family emigrated Mary would have been only 17 when they married so was probable still a home, however Ewen's age was thought to be actually 57 rather than the 50 recorded so Mary's age may also have been reduced. but given the aged of her youngest child she was unlikely to be very much older.
Sarah Cameron married on 29 aug 1851 to Duncan Campbell a Master Mariner from Grandtuly Scotland their eldest daughter Margret married John Glass from kinross on 14 mar 1871 in the Wesleyan Church Lawrence Otago NZ
