Jane Morrison
« on: Saturday 08 November 14 03:06 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm looking for information on my great grandmother Jane Morrison, usually called Jean. She was born in August 1914/1915 in Sutherland or thereabouts, her mother died young and she lived with her father and stepmother. She left at a young age to go and be a domestic servant to an old woman in Fodderty. She married Peter Colven, not sure of the year. She had a daughter, Margaret Colven, on 8 July 1936 in Strathpeffer :)

Interesting, that'll be them :) The surname confuses me because I know it's definitely COLVEN but it seems it is spelt Colvin sometimes?

I should add some more information
He didn't go to war in world war 2 because he owned a farm and so was needed
They also had another son called Billy, a few years later

I have some new information, I believe her father was John Morrison and her mother was Barbara. I think her surname MAY have been Campbell before marriage but I'm not sure.

If you think the 1935 marriage is correct it should give the names of the parents -
