It doesn't give ages on the Valuation Rolls. Also, as he was a fisherman, he could have moved around.
 
I'll look some more but, could I just say that I've searched for one of my great grandfathers for over 60 years and have still not found him  :-\

I think the Gaelic is Ceann a Bhaigh but it's not listed on the FindMyPast 1901.

The Kirk Sessions Records might have something but these are not online for Stornoway as far as I can see. They are available at the larger records centres in Scotland.

Thanks I will look for that.

One thing I do know for certain that the Mackays were members of the Free Church of Scotland. Dolly told me that one of her Aunts was an elder (?) quite high up and when she died they carried her across to the burial ground.

The nearest to that is Ceannacaraidh also there is one that says Bay and another that says Bayfield, Kenneth, Church St etc are all there which seems strange as they are all in English. Found Pringles Court too which is where Dolly was born so might see if I can get a copy of that.

 Hi Sorry I have been offline we are having a new router installed but it is playing me up suppose to be super efficient but worse than the old one!!!!

 I'm reading Henderson's Buildings but I might be wrong, if not that's weird them not being there on 1911 census
Regards Pam??

I saw a Henderson's Garage on something I found but can't see it in my history of searches  :-\

Henderson's Buildings suggest a tenement or the extension in the back close. I didn't find them in the Valuation Rolls but that was searched by name. I'll see if I can find anything on the earlier Rolls later this evening.
