Thank you so much for solving. Somewhere I saw Aberdeen as a likely area but the rumour of being from a titled background seems well off the mark. Sorry for not picking up before and suggesting the wrong person. I can only blame reading it quickly whilst having a stinking cold.

Very many thanks for your help. I have a daughter in Evanton and at sometime I will visit Fraserburgh and Aberdeen.

Think a tree owner has got a bit carried away and has the mother for Constance Margueritte Eleanor  as Constance Mary Elizabeth Cochrane -Wishart Baillie ...Countess De La Ward 1846-1929 .. ::).If you search Scotland's People you will get a death for her mother as just plain
Constance Margu Baillie died 1891 Fraserburgh age 41

It is very interesting how family stories are passed down. Perhaps the name Baillie had suggested the Scottish aristocracy that my relations were sure was the case. They even thought that Sandringham House was owned by the family!


A relation thought Constance may also have the name Angela as one of her names. That does seem to just an error. She a few years later, died of dementia and therefore it was very probably a confused moment.

Perhaps the war brought her sisters to Chelea and the barracks or were introduced to future husbands by Constance. Thanks Mark
