Stuart Family

A Memory of Dufftown

My great-grandparents were William Gordon Stuart and Sarah Anne (Miller) Stuart. They moved to Tininver House, Dufftown in 1887. William was in the British military for over 37 years and had just retired. He was stationed in Ireland where my grandfather, Charles Gordon Stuart, was born in 1880. This William was born in Glenlivet area in 1835 and had a twin sister Jane. Jane married David Scott of Hillock of Echt, Cabrach. William's and Jane's parents were William Stuart and Elspet Kellas, who at one time ran the Grouse Inn, Cabrach in about 1850's to 1870's. My grandfather, Charles Gordon Stuart came to the USA in about 1907, after living in Alberta, Canada. He helped rebuild San Francisco, Calif., just after the big 1906 earthquake. It was a pleasure to visit my ancestors homes in Dufftown, Cabrach, and the Glenlivet area. I would like to hear from anyone who may be related and look forward to your reply. I am in the USA. My email address: With Kind Regards, Pamela Stuart
