Nothing from that early, I'm afraid. However, I have recently identified a relative, Ann Lobban, born 1808 (plus or minus 1 year), buried in Keith, Banffshire on Dec 5 1900. This is quite close to Dundurcas (about 8 miles). Three Lobbans fought in the First World War in the 6th Battalion Gordon Highlanders. This battalion recruited from Banff and Donside, and would have covered the Dundurcas Parish. Two were killed (Alexander, who enlisted in Keith) and Robert (who was from Alford). GJ Lobban (from Fife-Keith, which was a separate town to Keith itself)went to war as a private in the Territorial Force in November 1914, and Lieutenant GJ Lobban won the Military Cross, presumably the same man, promoted. I had not heard of this surname until yesterday, it seems quite unusual
