James appears to be living with Ann Allanach, the wife of his brother William Farquharson. However William does not appear in the same household but appears as a farm overseer at Belnaboddach. Little is known about James Farquharson’s family, we only know that his father was William and his mother Ann Allanach

From the Article on Upperton


The Allanach farm was 32 acres in the 1851 census. Robert Allanach farmed there till his death in 1856. His gravestone in the Old Kirk also records the death of his wife Mary in 1868. The farm then passed to his son Alexander, but in the 1871 census the farm (now only 5 acres) is run by Ann Allanach. Ann was born in Banffshire and her oldest son was born at Inveravon in Banffshire: it is not clear what relation she was. In 1901, Ann 67 is still in Upperton (recorded as ‘farm grieve’s wife’) with her grandson Alexander 14, but none of Ann’s three children have remained at Upperton. She died in 1924 aged 84 and her gravestone is in the Old Kirk.

The other substantial holding (10 acres in 1851) was farmed by John Gauld until 1871 when he was 70. In 1871, the tenant is Ann Allanach, recorded as ‘head of the family’ and ‘occupier of 5 acres’. In the 1861 Estate records another Allanach, Alexander, is the tenant of one of the smaller lots. The Gauld gravestone in Glenbuchat Old Kirk graveyard records the death of Alexander in 1910, and of John Gauld of Upperton in 1926 (but his relation to the older John is not known).
