    I understand he was married to Jane or Janet Sutherland and had at least a daughter Eliza /Elizabeth Clunes Robertson at the time he was teaching in Caithness in 1799.

    James Robertson is a g-g-g grandfather of mine. He had a large family of 4 daughters and 7 sons. His wife was Jane Sutherland. I have quite a bit on 2 of his sons including my g-g grandfather, John Robertson, who was also a schoolmaster.

    Hello, I have a John Robertson, Officer of Inland Revenue, Port Gower, on my tree. Also served at Dornoch Jail early 1800's. He was married to Elizabeth Murray. I have their children as: James Robertson b. 22.11.1819, Jane Robertson b. 1.7.1821, married surname Sutherland, William Clunes Robertson b.29.6.1823, all Port Gower, Mina (Williamina?) Robertson 18.8.1825, Gartymore. Would perhaps have been related to Elizabeth Robertson as there is mention of Clunes Robertson there too?
