9 Ross Family Photos 1

Aileen Ross has kindly sent in some unidentified family photos and perhaps some of the amateur sleuths out there might be help identify the people in them.

The photos are on this and the folllowing page

Aileen says that the photos were in the possession of her grandmother Isabella Tawse nee Hay . Isabella’s parents were Alexander Hay and Annie Margaret Shand Chree. The Chree family is a well-known Glenbuchat family who loved at Sunnybrae Farm. Isabella’s Aunt Isabella Chree never married and was a house keeper in Winstanley Hall Wigan as noted in the census below.

The photos on this page show:

1. A ? family group. Aileen states ‘could this be the Reid family? I know there is a connection between the Reid and Chree families. (Indeed, Peter Chree married Mary Reid)

2 Family Group. Aileen states ‘The man who is seated bears a resemblance to the Alex Hay in the Glenbuchat games committee photo but I don't think it is him. Possibly a relative. It could be my Grans parents and siblings (Alex Hay and Annie Chree with children Beatrice, Catherine, Isabella, Alexander)

3. Formal photograph of young lady, ?Jane

4. Back of photo Letter from Jane to her sister It says she had a letter from ‘Mary at the Craig’ presumably Belnacraig and also mentions ‘ at Sunnybrae’ presumably Ann Margaret Shand Hay nee Cree

5. Photo of lady ?Name Aileen states: ‘I don't know if this is from the Rothes Tawses or the Hay or Chree side of the family. It looks very old and seems to be signed.’


If anyone can identify the people in the photos please contact us using the email address shown in the introduction page.

Below are the Chree and Hay family details along with re Chree connection with the Reid family from Baltimore Farm
