Hi  I wonder if any one can help
One my gt gt grandmothers Elizabeth Anderson (nee Lennie)'s death certificate it describes her parents as John Lennie (farmer deceased) and Barbara Lennie  (nee Croy deceased). Elizabeth died in Wick July 24th 1886 aged 69
She was born on Stronsay and married Alexander Anderson on the island in 1843 
My gt gt gt grandmother Barbara Croy died 24th October 1860 at Whitehall Stronsay aged 88 years. On her death certificate  she is described as the daughter of  Robert Croy (agricultural labourer deceased) and Margaret Croy nee Peace (deceased)
Does anyone know of any further information about Robert and Margaret ??
I cant seem to find anything more..

Many thanks and best wishes from Sweden

Thank you very much for the prompt replies and apologies for the earlier typo.
I had checked the 1911 census but did not glean much from it.
I found the death of Andewina both in SP and in a newspaper cutting from Edinburgh Evening News
However with your help I now have something to go on
Many thanks

I am looking for any information about this family who lived at 14 East Arthur Place Edinburgh in 1891

Isabella McKay Jack 47 b. Thurso
Alex Jack 13
David Jack 11

In 1901 they were still at the same Address: 14 East Arthur Place, Edinburgh but only John Snr Andrew and Andrewina were present

Isabella who was my  gt gt grandmother passed away in 1898 and John Snr in 1910. I found Andrewina passed on in 1942 , she had a daughter Isabell... I cannot find any info about the rest of the family

Many thanks

Lancashire / Re: Robert Emma and Archie McKay West Derby

Hi Heatherjulie That is the family indeed , they originated in Caithness Scotland. Regarding the parents Robert McKay s father was Robert McKay 1815.. 1878 and his mother was Margaret  Bremner 1814..
Agnes Mary,s  father was a school teacher in Keiss Archibald Morrison and her mother Jamesina Sutherland . Therefore I am not sure where a middle name of Forbes would come in , but that could be after a friend doctor etc . To answer I am not a direct decendant but this is a branch of my fathers family ... or slškt as we say in Sweden

 Robert also had an elder  brother Thomas who moved to Liverpool as well with his wife from Caithness .. His eldest son was called Robert !! Many thanks for your efforts really appreciated!!

I can see what happened to Robert snr and Agnes but the children seem to disappear. Can anyone point me in the right direction .. This has been a long established dead end for me  ,, Many thanks
