Eliza MacLennan, born 1850, in Inverness.

For the 1881 census Eliza was living at 12 St James Street, Govan, Glasgow, working as a housekeeper for her brother John. (See John MacLennan)

Eliza married Charles Stone between 1881 and 1896.

For the census of 1901she was possibly working at 12 Onslow Square, Kensington, London, as a Housemaid.

Robert MacLennan, born 1852, in Inverness.

Robert married Mary Ann MacLean daughter of Charles MacLean, an asylum worker, and Betsy McMillan on 27 Dec 1878 in 60 Upper Kessock Street, Inverness. Mary was born about 1857 in Inverness.

Robert and Mary had the following known seven children:

For the census of 1881 Robert and Mary were living in Inverness with their infant daughter Elizabeth.

Sometime around 1883 Robert moved south to Aintree, in Lancashire close to Liverpool. Presumably the move was prompted by the availability of work. It is in Walton on the Hill that we find Robert his now somewhat larger family, for the cesus of 1891. Also in the household is Robert's mother Georgina, presumably helping to look after the children.

I believe that Robert died Oct-Dec 1908 as there is a death of a Robert Mac Lennan aged 56 registered in Birkenhead (8a 343), during that quarter. Certainly for the census of 1911 Mary is recorded as a widow, living at 31 Rivington Road, Seacombe, Cheshire. No doubt the inclusion of a couple of boarders help to boost the family's income.
