Hello Gadget,

Thank you very much. 

For security reasons I have ActiveX and Java both disabled so I use direct download method and I found I had two pages. I noticed the message "You may be charged for other pages if you have not viewed them before." but missed the box with "View Page After (Paid)" so now I have seen page 43.

Regards,

Fred

Thank you for answering where George fitted into the Hall family.  Thomas and Agnes (Stirling) were Robert's parents.  I have searched for George on and off over the years as I thought he may have been a nephew or illegit son of William who was still living at home in 1841. Never thought he belonged to Robert.  I'm descended through Robert's brother John and my family is also in Australia.

I am interested to find out if anyone knows anything about Harriet M (Matilda) Diamond the 3 year old on the record, she is somehow connected to the Stuart family of Fortrose, who are part of my family.

Hi

I've not looked at this thread for 4 years so am a bit rusty. I will read it through and try to answer your question.

Hi again

The 1871 census has her born Ireland.

Her death registration of 1910, Rosemarkie. gives her parents as D. Diamond (colour sergant) and Christina Diamond nee Watson. Both were deceased. Her Uncle  ?? Stuart of Fortrose was the informant.

I can't decipher the initials of the uncle Stuart.

I assume that that was the connection.  I'll see if I can find a link between the families.

I've attached a snip of the signature to see if you might be able to decipher.

The same person (Stuart) was the informant on Christina Diamond ms Watson's death cert - he is described as Brother in Law so assume he might be  the brother/step of Sgt Diamond.

Now thinking that the Stuart link could be via Christina's mother - maiden name was Ann Hossack.

Thanks, it is John MacIntosh Stuart,  in his will he names her as a niece and she is also with them in the census records as shop assistant, they had shops in Fortrose and on the valuation rolls for a few years she seems to be in Ivy Cottage, Fortrose.   I need to do a bit more research into her family.

The signature on Christina's death cert is clearer it could well be  J Mc Stuart.

What was his wife's surname?
