I remember growing up in Elgin (Bishopmill). All my family have passed on now, but I still visit as often as I can, each time I go there I feel a bolt of pride as I walk down the High Street, happy days.
My grandfather, Robert (Bob) and his wife, Margaret (Maggie) Stewart/Stuart, along with their two children, lived at The Wards, Elgin, about 1900. Robert was employed at the railway station there. A third child, James Urquhart, was born at The Wards, 6th October 1900.
My great, great grandmother lived here. Mary Norris (Dick). She died there in 1922. I don't know how far back in the family this house went.
