    Burr's leaving after visit to Aberdeenshire
    Burr's leaving after visit to Aberdeenshire
    Jack Burr and his wife Ella were leaving U K for New Zealand along with their two children Charlie and Ella
    Seeing them off were Charlie Burr and his wife Lizzie
    Charlie was head gardener for the Fingask family of that name and estate. Also seeing them off was my mother Isabella with myself in her arms aged nearly three years and daughter Olive.
    Charlie Burr looks to be in some danger in losing his legs were the train to arrive unexpectedly.
    Jack Burr was taking the photo so does not appear Charlie Burr made picture frames which were in Olives custody and I was later able to transport them to NZ so they are now with Ella

  • Notes 
    • Olive's father was not Henry Gray
      Her real father is not known to me although Olive has a photograph of him and may be aware of his name As of Oct 2007 I understand from Olive that his name was Jim Findlay and he worked at a farm near Insch
      I have altered the programme so that Olive and her family are with the Grays as she was brought up as one of us and has expressed a wish to be so included This of course does not convey the true picture but I am content to let it be
      She died at Elgin Morayshire (county is now called Grampian) on Saturday 26th July 08 aged 87 years with her husband Walter by her side after close on 64 years together
      Dear Olive ,rest in peace
