  • Notes 
    • Janet was a farmer's wife in Morayshire.

      The records we have for Janet are her daughter's birth, and her husband's death. Her daughter's death certificate refers to Janet as 'Helen Watson' but we can assume this was a mistake based on the recorder assuming the eldest daughter was named after her mother, which was common.

      +++++++

      1821 daughter's Birth record, Parish of Dyke:
      "Helen lawful daughter to John Watson and Janet Ruface /Rusale(?) born at Moy Corse 18th Nov and baptised 1st December"
