  • Notes 
    • An earlier George died before this boy was born and I believe that he was given the name which had become vacant
      The 1881 Census shows George aged 21 living at home with his parents at Ryehill and his occupation is given as carter Since his father is listed as a quarrier most likely on Benachie George may also be employed there
      Quarrying on Benachie came to an abrupt stop following a downpour which washed out the road

      He married Mary Massie on the 9th of Feb 1884 in Culsalmond

      1891 Census is very sketchy from Scotlandspeople Website shows George as farmer in Parish of Insch age unreadable but maybe 34 with wife Mary age 31and three children George age 5 Alexander Massie 2 and Mary age 1 They have 5 windows or rooms with windows and a farm servant Robert Alardyce age14 from Rayne
      The Insch Census for 1901 gives us George Florence farmer at Midtown He is age 41 as is his wife Mary The children listed are as follows Alexander M age 12 born Old Macher Mary age 11 born Insch John age9 born Insch Maggie E age 6 also Insch Thomas age 4 born Insch and Bella S age 2 born Insch There are 6 rooms with one or more windows
