Hi....Just read your query about Christina Grant/William McPherson.
Christina Grant was the daughter of John Grant who was the son of Lady and Lord Grant. It seems that she ran off with William and was consequently ruled out of the family. Their son was John Grant McPherson who married Mary McNicol Bruce.
My father researched this intensely in 1980s and after visiting and viewing parish records put the marriage of William and Christina in 1839.
I am a direct descendant by the way !

John Grant Mcpherson was my great grandfather. His parents were William McPherson and Christina Grant. Christina was the daughter of John Grant who was the son of Lord and Lady Grant. It seems Christina ran off with William, hence the lack of records. She may have been disowned by the Grants ? May have been pregnant with John Grant Mcpherson ?
John Grant McPherson had 8 children, one of whom was James Alexander Bruce McPherson ( my grandfather )
