  • Note:
    The christening record reads: 22 Oct [1775] William Robbie in Nether Contley had James baptiz ed before witnesses.

    In the 1851 census James was born 1775/6 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. His parents are not list ed on his death certificate, so the link to parents is uncertain. There is no other James Rob bie/Robie/Robe/Roby born in this period in Aberdeenshire so these are his parents, or his bir th is not recorded. Since he recorded his own marriage and children in the parish records i t is more likely that he would also have been listed by his parents. The only other known pos sibility is an unrecorded James Robbie born about this time in Birse, Aberdeen, son of Willia m Robbie and Christian Mollison, but he married Margaret Skene and lived in Nigg, Kincardine.

    James and family lived at first in Lauriston, Saint Cyrus, Kincardine and by 1811 at Roadsid e of Lauriston. In 1841 James farmed at Graystone, Saint Cyrus; at home were wife Agnes, dau ghter Mary, a teacher, and Susan May, a field servant born 1826/7 in Kincardineshire. In 185 1 James occupied 5 acres at Greystone with his daughter Mary and her husband Kenneth McRae, o ccupier of 17 acres, their son James, and two servants.

    The informant on James' death certificate was his son-in-law Kenneth McRae; he did not list t he parents. [We descendants, Ken Doig and son Brian Doig, visited James' grave in St. Cyrus.]
