    Hatton of Ardoyne House
    Hatton of Ardoyne House
    This is the house at Hatton of Ardoyne near Oyne as described in the auction sale catalogue I somehow expected a property older in appearance and suspect that this must have been a replacement at some point As you head out of Oyne crossing the railway line towards Old Rayne you come to a junction with the main highway and at this point a small road immediately on the left winds it way back in the direction you came passing the Hatton properties to exit on the Oyne to Insch road close to the toll bridge

  • Notes 
    • Jane Jaffrey was not married to Alexander Ross but had a child by him Whether this was the Ross who took over the tenancy of the farm when Leslie Jaffrey died and eventually purchased it I cannot say at this stage but it seems probable (Yes it was confirmed later)
      Jane had a second child this time by father John Shand She married John Shand at Oyne on the 25th Nov 1881when she was 31 years of age and he was 24 Her address at this time is given as Templand Culsalmond She is described as a spinster

      A curious item appears in the 1881 Census at dwelling Old Smiddy Forgue The Head of household John Shand was not at home when the enumerator called but his wife was She is named as head of household, Isabella (John) Shand which suggests they are parted There is a 7 month old baby John Jaffrey Shand there described as son but unlikely to belong to the 51 year old wife Isabella The assumption has to be that the boy is the son of our couple and he is left with the grandmother until they marry as they do later that year

      Looking further on, to the 1891 census searching for Jean we come across an entry which shows John Shand a widower age 36 farming at Skirts of Foudland employing a general servant age forty something and a son John age 10 living there If I have the right John Shand it suggest that Jean died sometime between 1881 and 1891
      Further search gives the death of Jane age 34 years at 11.45pm on Jan 30th 1885 at Woodside Culsalmond She was married to John Shand crofter Cause of death is Bronchitis and certified by Patrick Mitchell MD Her parents are named as Leslie Jaffrey and Jane Jaffrey (m s Smith) so she is fully identified
