Could Kildenbro be Hildenborough? There’s an Old House Farm in Hildenborough.

It could well be; I imagine any information that reached the Liquidator went through quite the chain of people, so along the way it was misheard.  I suppose to too, perhaps she was never there; it could have been some neighbour//relative supplying information on where they thought she may have gone.

My husband's grandfather Francis Donald Stuart 1877-1961 was born at the Golden Lion Hotel in Stirling to  the proprietor Robert Stuart 1834 - and Ann Elizabeth Watt 1835-1950

Suzette, can you double check on where the information on Ann's death year came from?  Did she really make 115 years?

Thank you Bbart for that article.  Interesting - In about 1885 Robert and Ann E Stuart left The Golden Lion in Stirling for The Great Northern Hotel in St Mary le Wigford, Lincoln - not Charing Cross.  Ann E was widowed in 1890.  She carried on running The Great Northern Hotel in Lincoln until about 1910.  The 1911 census shows she has moved to Worthing and is living with a spinster daughter.  She died in 1915 and is buried in Lincoln.

The 1950 death date for Ann E Stuart would have been a typo!  Does anyone know anything of the Stirling Public Hall Company Ltd.  Might they have owned The Golden Lion Hotel?

Robert Stuart Tailor xxxxx married to Ann McDonald daughter to James McDonald Dreggie 1st August 1820

Not sure on place name where Robert was residing at the time of the marriage. Possibly Grantown which fits with location of Dreggie etc.
