Is it possible to get an 1861 census look up for
Jessie GRANT aged approx 19yrs and born Keith, Banffshire?
She was living at Easter Lettoch c:1856

Father was William but may not be living with him. Step mother was Jane GRANT.

Thank you
Dave

Hi Julie,

Thank you but I am sorry, that is the wrong listing.
Jessie GRANT is definitely in the 19yr age group. Her mother died in 1842.

I should have mentioned that William GRANT is listed in the 1861 census as living in Grantown with his wife and son, but I am trying to locate where Jessie would be as I think she was still in the Banff or Moray area as far as I can determine until 1865. There is a slim possiblity that she had already moved to her aunts in Bebington, Cheshire area by the 1861 census.
May be a look up for Joseph 33yrs & Helen (Ellen) ORME in Cheshire? might find her.

Cheers
Dave
