Hi Bryan, I made a comment earlier today about the 1841 census listed above having mistakes in it. The comment I made about the people actually not all living in the same house was correct but I should have said the names of Esther and her husband should be Leith not Seith. If you go to the Free Census Online Project you can see all these household with the correct spelling of their names. Also the name 'Comer' should be 'Corner'. The original from Scotlands People that I have is very hard to read so I can see how the transcription errors happened.
Best regards

      I had a feeling that I'd heard of HOG* people coming from the Black Isle before. I did a search (bottom right of the page) for "Black Isle" and came across this old entry into the Guestbook by Greg... more
