Census information Crown Copyright, from

I see from the last entry it is some time since it was posted but I  am back on the trail of the ancestors relating to Elizabeth Mcrae, with the link through her sister Catherine who married ROBERT GEORGE REID MOWAT in 30 July 1917
His father was Donald LOUTTIT Mowat who married Elizabeth Reid on 10 Sep 1886

His father William Mowat married Margaret LOUTTIT on 13 Feb 1846 and she being the daughter of John LOUTTIT who was married to Margaret FORBES.
I am looking for more details of this marriage , when and where it took place and any further details of their other children if any one has any information
I am aware that the name LOUTTIT is usually found in this county and in Orkney Islands

regards   Squirejay
