You mention in your email of the 25th July that Bain could be within the McBean clan and that you have details from all over.
I have been trying to find out details of my Great Greast Grandmother Isabella Wallace Bain who was born about 1817 in Tain father Hugh [these details from her death certificate] without success
I have been in touch with Estelle Quick who was the curator of the Tain museum and she was not able to help unfortunately.
I have searched the LDS CD-ROM of Old Parish Records without success.
I have a photo of the Bain house in Tain, with grandmother Brake and an aunt in front, taken during the Anglo-Scottish tour in the 1920s; also copies of letters written by a Hugh Bain which have a London address.
As one of those brick walls that loom up before one, I am clutching at any straw that might help me
