Hay Family Craighead
Ken Cruickshank has again kindly provided some photographs relating to the Hay family of Craighead Belnacraig
Local knowledge stated that this was a photo of Lucy Rose, dressed as a flower girl and taken in the walled garden of Auchernach House, Glen Nochty c 1905.
Her father, G. F. Rose, was laird of Auchernach Estate and had other properties in N.E. Scotland. Her nanny at the time was Mary Ann Cruickshank 1878 - 1946, before she married about 1907 George Hay of Easterbuchat (subsequently famer in Craighead Glenbuchat - see entry 116 and entry 1153) .
George and Mary Hay's first grandchild (daughter of Mary Ann (Leah) and Jock Davidson ( see entry 117) was named after Lucy Rose. I note from a biography of G. F. Rose on this site, that he had no children - ( see entry 385).
Perhaps the information given to me in the early1980's was mistaken. Can anyone enlighten us on this?
