Trying to locate William GRANT in this 1841 census most likely working in the Banffshire area around Dufftown. Otherwise he may be in Morayshire.
Likely listed as an ag lab, aged approx 28yrs.
Would like all details regarding any listing found.

Thanking you Kindly
DaveHall

As there are too many names to list I have listed the number of people in each household. Three have other Grants.
Have a look through these, highlight the ones you think may match and then we can go back to them for a better look.

Hi Cranky,

I would be interested in the ones selected above for further details.
William GRANT married Annie McCONNACHIE from Glenrinnes c:1841 so I figure that he must have been in the general area of this place. I am trying to locate Brackonmark but no luck so far. Please check the spelling of this.

Many Thanks
DaveHall

So I'm assuming they married after the 1841 census, or have we the right William Grant? What year was Annie McConnachie born?

Hi Cranky,

Thank you these listings.
William GRANT's wife to be, Annie McCONNACHIE was born Glenrinnes in Mar 1816 and is listed on the 1841 census.
So, if they did get married, (which I believe would be so), I have narrowed down their marriage to between the 1841 census and the conception of their daughter Jessie, born Keith area July 1842. If they didn't get married till later, or at all, then it could explain why I can't find a marriage listing.

From your info supplied, I would like to think that my William GRANT is the one listed in either Brackonmark or Knockandow. I am trying to establish where these places, (farms) are in relation to Glenrinnes, which is a few miles south of Dufftown in Mortlach parish. Inveravon in just south of this area.

Cheers
DaveHall
