  • Notes 
    • Oyne OPR Birth/ Baptism 27 Aug 1813 parents Alexander Jaffray and Elspet Skene Witnesses are James Brown and William Milne

      The 1851 Census makes life difficult regarding Agnes and her date of birth and stated age
      The address is Gusset neuk Head is John Ross retired weaver born Premnay age 62 Wife is Agnes age 57 (?) born Chapel of Garioch family is son John age 14 employed at home dau Sarah is age 12 Scholar son William age 9 scholar and son James age 7 Scholar all four children born Oyne

      1861 Census Enu 4 page 11 Gushet neuk Oyne John Ross head age 72 Riddlemaker Born Premnay and his wife Agnes age 47 born Chapel of Garioch ( her age is further adrift than ever )

      The 1881 Census gives Agnes as widow living at Gussetnook Oyne with her son James Ross age 37 a grocer born Oyne and a Grand daughter Jemima age 6 born in Ontario Canada
      Agnes is 67 born Chapel of Garioch and occupation Stocking Knitter

      Trouble with Agnes is that she has not aged by 30 years between 1851 and 1881 Looks as if her age on the 1851 Census should have been 35 Son James has aged correctly in 1951 he was 7 and in 1881 he is 37 I think they are correctly identified but Agnes is suspect as regards age Large disparity in age between Agnes and her husband John Ross
