Sorry, Derek, just seen your last post...

The address that you quote of 18 Castle Street, Rothesay, is this the address of the bride at the time of the marriage? Doesn't necessarily indicate it was her family address I would say.

Re farmer, it had a very wide encompassing meaning!

Yes, but perhaps not as bad as the old "Ag. Lab." catch all  ::)

Thanks very much for all your detective work Monica, you've given me plenty to look into and iron out.

Cheers again,
Derek.

I've found them in the 1911 census and there is further detail regarding Marions birthplace, Loch Skipport, South Uist.

Hi Anne Marie,

Thank you for the marriage date. This family line has always been the most difficult to nail down.
Does the info come from a gravestne or OPR?

Thanks,
Derek.
