Rewatching the visit to the cottage, the researcher says it is Tomintoul, where Isabella had her "guilt" with Russell and where she had her two children, and where she spent a great deal of her life, but it is Annie Lennox who says that Isabella was still living in that cottage on the censuses and when her (Annie's) grandfather was a child. She says "living here" when she looks at the censuses and later on, "so many decades living alone, up here" but the researcher or archivist doesn't correct her. But it seems Annie had got the wrong end of the stick and thought that Isabella lived in that cottage all her life when she only lived there (or near it?) when she was younger.

So, I shall go back to page 1 and correct my synopsis!

Quite interesting that they didn't correct her!


And n the subject of corrections or otherwise, when I watched the episode already armed with the info about the carcinoma on that death cert, I seemed to hear it was the researcher who said ulcerous before Annie did - she stumbled on the word and he said ulcerous and she then said it a fraction later.

Ah, great, I'm happy now, lol. The devil is in the detail as they say and possibly they didn't want to go into a hugely convoluted discussion explaining the hair splitting difference between Tomintoul Village, Corriemulzie and Tomintoul Croft. Or perhaps they just didn't realise there WAS a difference as the area is so remote and underpopulated.

I still can't believe they didn't say "And she lived in a cottage which is now a Scottish Heritage Site" or whatever it is - if that were my ancestor I'd be thrilled to know that. It's those little idiosyncratic details which bring our ancestors alive, surely.

I'd love to know my lot lived in what is now a Heritage Site.

Their whole area is now owned by some bigwig pollie. Apparently he wanders arouns and plays the part of Lord Muck at local festivals...

My Isabella McHardy gave birth in 1802 so maybe a bit old to connect with this one..
