I just wanted to send you a note and Thank you for your website on Evanton history.

I just found it and will have to spend some time to look through everything.
I am from Vancouver, Canada.

My 4th great grand parents were James Sutherland (1781-1861) and Christian Munro (1786-1867) She was from Clashnabuiac and they lived there till about 1812 when they moved to the Mains of Novar. (They had a child at Clashnabuiac in 1811 and one at Novar in 1813) is listed as an Ag lab in the censuses. I recently found one of their sons death certificate from Greenock that lists him as the Overseer of Novar.

Thank you again

Teesdale House
I am trying to locate a large granite house in Evanton that was built for my great grandfather Andrew Craik in approx 1900. We always knew of it as Teesdale House but this does not come up on any searches. My grandmother Jane Craik Hudson lived in this house through the war years and I think left in 1960. I would be interested in any info regarding the house or my family. We also have insurance taken out on "The Cottage" in 1961 by my grandma but were not aware that she had moved to this property.

I was curious to know if there was any way that I could get a picture of the portrait of Major Jackson that is in the Jubilee Hall? I'm doing some research on Randle Jackson (I have one of his swords) and it would be great to put a face to history. Also, any pictures of his headstone, or a description thereof, would be welcome.

This site is fantastic. I have been searching for the area that my GGG grandfather - Malcolm Ross lived (Bogreach) which is now called Fannyfield. I also knew that Malcolm died between 1841 and 1851 but as a result of your historical information I now know he was still living in 1845 - again norrowing the field. I have search endless for his death records with no luck, but will now concentrate my search around Swordale as this is very near where he lived.
Keep up the great work.
