William was my 4xgreat uncle. William was born in 1775 at Craigton, Castle Craig where his father Thomas and grandfather James had been tacksmen. Upon his father’s death William took over as the tacksman at Castle Craig. However he later became the tenant farmer at Springfield in Resolis. Janet was born at Torgorm in the parish of Urquhart and Logie Wester in 1796. They married in 1811 in Resolis and had seven children. It is likely they both passed away at Springfield. Apart from his son James, also buried here, and daughter Mary buried close by (image 1779) there was another son, also William, who died in Resolis in 1858. He was probably buried locally.
