On the 1861 census the eldest three are servants in various households and Charles is living in Banff (if I have found the right person!) with an aunt Isabella Dallas age 46 born Gelliemill, Banffshire (according to ancestry.) Isabella has children called Arthur 15, John 13, Louisa 11 and Mary 7. Looking at baptisms on FamilySearch, it looks as though Isabella's husband was also called Arthur, and Isabella's maiden name was Sellars, so I'm not sure how they are Charles's uncle and aunt. Of course ancestry may have mistranscribed relationship to head - will see if I can find it on FMP or FamilySearch to check.

possible with Dallas family

Ah, never mind - I think that was the wrong Charles! I've found another one now, living at Tomintoul with some Frasers and a Stuart, link coming in a minute... hmm, ancestry has him as Charles Stuart and his birthplace is Kirkmichael, so now I don't know which Charles is the right one! Also I just realised this is a different Tomintoul from the one where Isabella McHardy lived.

possible in Tomintoul

John Dallas got married in Ontario, Canada in 1877 and gives his mother's name as Isabella Stewart Sellar, and Jessie's mother's mother was Ann Stewart, so maybe that's where the connection is.

Okay, found a public tree on ancestry which shows Isabella Stewart Sellar as born about 1815, Gelliemill, Banffshire, the daughter of Charles Stewart and Ann. Not sure where the surname Sellar comes from, though.

Well by the age 10 you could go to work in a mill which is what she probably did as she's on the census aged 13 working at a mill in Aberdeen.

Remember that there is a Tomintoul village/town but the farm was called 'Tomintoul' and in Braemar two different places I believe.

Edited to say: Tomintoul Croft not farm.

Now I am confused...

The 1851 census has Janet Fraser, 3, daughter of Mary Fraser, pauper, widow.

But Janet, natural born daughter of James Rose, solicitor, and Ann Stewart.

It was Mary (Jessie's mother) who was the natural born daughter of James Rose and Ann Stewart.
