Thank you.  That was how I read it and Grantown would fit in with his son, Robert's, birth place; Tailor fits with his stated occupation on son Robert's 1868 marriage Certificate. 

According to ScotlandsPeople, Robert Stuart and Ann McDonald had a daughter Jessie Fordice who I have traced to Australia.  I have also found an Australian death record for an Alexander Stuart, whose daughter was Jessie Fordice.  That makes identifying Jessie Fordice's father very tricky - Robert or Alexander.  Robert and Jessie did have a brother called Alexander - so maybe he went to Australia and they attributed him to Jessie when he died.  I must check out that line of thought.
