Grocer's shop, Canisbay, Caithness, mid-1800s
« on: Friday 17 February 17 12:14 GMT (UK) »
My partner is (I believe) descended from Angus McLeod (abt 1789-1846) and his wife Jane McPherson (abt 1802-1874) who appear in the 1841-1871 censuses in Canisbay, Caithness, as merchants (1841 and 1851) or grocers (1861 and 1871). In the 1871 census Jane is described as living at "Grocer's shop".

I was wondering if any Canisbay locals have any idea what building was the grocer's shop in the mid-1800s and whether there are any photos of it if it still stands. I understand Canisbay to be quite a small place so perhaps (???) there may only have been one grocer's shop.

Many thanks if anyone is able to help.

I should add that if anyone else is ever interested in the same family I am happy to send census images/death certificates etc.
