Can someone please check the 1851 census for William GRANT boarding at Boharm, Windyhillocks, Morayshire. with Peter GRANT (possibly his uncle). (I have no info regarding his age or birth place if it is stated on this census). I am not sure that this is the right ancestor.

Could you please list all info found regarding him because on 3 other documents he states his birth place in different localities, poor relief=Belfast, 1861 census=Dublin and 1881 census=Strathspey, Moray.
He also states his age at various ages as well, so it is getting rather frustrating. His age could be anywhere between, 34 - 41

He married in 1852, at Wester Lettoch, Cromdale, Moray so he would be listed as single (or widowed) in 1851, and he has always listed labourer for his occupation. His daughter at this time was living at Keith with her grandmother so he could be anyplace in Moray or Banffshire.

All William GRANT's having this criteria would be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance
DaveHall

Hi Cranky,

Thank you for this confirmation.
Is there any other possibilities for this William GRANT?
Could you check if there is any in Banffshire area?
Also could you check for
Jane GRANT aged approx 27 born Cromarty, possibly living at Lettoch, Morayshire?

Cheers
Much appreciated

Hi Dave

Sorry no Jane GRANT 27 Cromarty Lettoch, Morayshire. Searched with no surname and no Jane's born living here.

There's one more that fits the occupation William Grant 1814 Ag Lab in Aberlour, Banffshire area but he is married with four children.

Never too late to change hobby to Stamp collecting.:D :D :D :D :D :D
