Cawdor Castle Information
« on: Friday 03 June 11 04:20 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

Would anyone know if there are records available on people who worked at Cawdor Castle during the esarly 1900's? My Grandmother, Johan Rosie Douglas lived at Balloan farm of Miekle Geddes with her parents according to her marriage information of 31 December 1917. She is listed as a domestic servant. She used to tell the family that she worked in a Castle when she married my Grandfather Ovila Leduc, a Canadian Soldier during WWI. It would be interesting to find some records to confirm her employment as I am making an assumption that she worked at Cawdor Castle given its the proximity to Balloan Farm.

Thank you in advance.
