    1861 Census At 14 Royal Circus, Edinburgh was Ann P. Denniston, Fundholder, born Jura, Argyll

    Earlier in Glasgow their house visited by Miss Logan and her sister, Miss Logan was a famous beauty of her day. :-
    John Campbell, fourth Earl of Breadalbane, was Major-General and a representative peer, and was made Marquess of Breadalbane and Earl of Ormelie in 1806. His only son, John, was, according to Peter Drummond of Perth (Perthshire in Bygone Days), the hero of a curious romance. While a student at Glasgow University he fell in love with Miss Logan, daughter of Walter Logan of Fingalton, near Airdrie, and partner in the firm of Logan and Adamson, who lived in West George Street, the ground floor of the house now occupied by Messrs. Patersonís music warehouse. The young lady was a great toast and strikingly handsome. Every time she entered the Theatre Royal in Queen Street it is said the audience rose to a man and cheered wildly. Alas, however, the match was considered unsuitable and was broken off, and the lady died unmarried in 1856. Lord John meanwhile had succeeded as second Marquess and fifth Earl on the death of his father in 1834, and became a Knight of the Thistle, a Knight of the Black Eagle of Prussia, Lord Lieutenant of Argyllshire, and president of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. In his time Queen Victoria paid her famous first visit to Scotland, and on that occasion was entertained at Taymouth with the most splendid hospitality. With huntings and Highland games by day and feastings and balls at night, the royal entertainment was "more like the dreams of romance than reality." The Marquess died without issue at Lausanne in 1862, when there ensued one of the most famous peerage cases on record.

    Miss Logan's mother famously said to Mrs Dennistoun "Be thankful, Mrs Dennistoun, you have not a beauty for a daughter!"

    As a widow, Mrs Dennistoun moved to Edinburgh with her family some time before the great fire of November 1824. The first house there was at Abercrombie Place, but later, and for many years, 14 Royal Circus was the residence, where Mrs Dennistoun stayed on with her unmarried daughter Elizabeth. This was next door to number 12, occupied from the 1850s onwards by General Cavaye and his family. (Census details given under the entry for the General's wife Isabella Jane Hutchinson)
