John McLeman at Rosehaugh - c1930

This was taken at the Rosehaugh estate outside Avoch. My Great Granddad Donald McLeman is the one with the beard. My wife's name is Shobbrook and her a branch of her family worked at the estate. Does anyone recognise any of the people in the photograph.

I think this photo is earlier than 1930. The man sitting second from the right looks like William Mortimer Moir, who was head gardener from about 1892-1920. From later photos of him this must have been taken around 1900-1910.

Yes Estelle I think it is earlier. Would you think this is all the staff at that time? My wife's relative was the coachman around that time. His son was killed in the 1914-18 war and his name is on the Avoch memorial. Do you have any photos that may show the coachman?

John, I suggest you contact Avoch Heritage Association. They produced an excellent book about Rosehaugh a few years ago and have held exhibitions of photos etc. Their website is www.avoch.org and it has a contact form.
