Looking for information on James & Isabella. They died in the early 1890's. Had a daughter Elizabeth (Lizzie) who married a Charles Stewart. Also had a son James Mackinnon Coutts who immigrated to Canada in 1903. Don't know exactly where they lived in Aberdeenshire. James Coutts was a headmaster at a school.

Elizabeth Coutts, Domestic Servant, Domicil King Street, Old Meldrum, gave birth (illegitimate ) to a daughter Alison Duguid born February 13, 1899, Podrach, Tarves. William Duguid, Strathray, Kinaldie was the father. Any chance this was the same person?

Hi Linda,
Anything is possible though I do not think there is a connection. Elizabeth died before her husband Charles Stewart so he signed the death certificate. As she was
almost fifty years old when they married it is doubtful if
there was any issue.

Victoria,

Over the last two years I've obtained a lot of information on the various branches of the family. I'd like to exchange some information. Would you please e-mail me? Thanks, Jim

I am wondering since you have so much info on the Coutts family in Scottland, if you have any knowledge of my grandmother, Andrina Coutts. She was born 1885-1887, after finding her mother dead in bed, was dropped off by her father at the Quarriers Village Orphan Home of Scotland. She had no known siblings. Just remembered her mom & dad. She left the orphanage in 1901 and migrated to Ontario Canada, where she married John Stewart (also from the orphage), they eventually ended up in Rochester, New York.

Hi Bill,
