Rosefarm 1963

Rosefarm has been occupied by the Middletons since 1780. Bright Gordon's great-great-great-great-grandfather was invited by the estate agent to leave Yorkshire and come north in about 1780. Bright's grandfather bought Rosefarm in 1923.

I believe I also had a relative, Mary Cameron, who lived at Rosefarm. I believe in the mid 1800's. She married my great, great, grandfather Enoch Holme who came to Canada about 1871. I would be interested if anyone has knowledge of her. Thank you

I am interested in seeing another Cameron in this area. My great, great, grandfather, John McLeod, was born on the Black Isle about 1819, give or take 2 years. His mother's maiden name was Ann Cameron. I am struggling with a Cameron surname study.

I picked tatties on Rose Farm and remember Mrs Gordon as being absolutely charming ... and generous. There was a real sense of community at that time (circa 1965-75).

My ancestors lived and worked at Rosefarm in the 1800's. Among them are parents Donald Bain (1793-1849) and his wife Christian Urquhart (1795-1884) and their sons Thomas Middleton Bain, James Bain, Donald Bain, John Bain and Alexander Bain. Thomas M. was my great great grandfather and he emigrated to Canada with his family. I am interested in finding out more about Rosefarm, the Middletons (were we related?), the Bains, and ancestors of Donald and Christian Bain.

Thomas Middleton Bain is also my great-great-grandfather. In addition to sharing the interests noted by Ann Stevens, I would like information on his emigration to Nova Scotia,Canada. (year and ship) I have visited the cemetery where he, his wife, some children and grandchildren are buried.
