Is anyone researching this family ... James Durrand and Donaldina Webster?
dates about 1890 - 1965 lived in Kinnaird Street Wick.

I have done some research which may be helpful.
Would be happy to share with you.

Hi Trinkie - have just joined forum so have looked back at Durrand listings. My grandfather (John George DURRAND) was born in Wick 1896 & immigrated to Aust in 1930's. I have copy of death registration of the James you are talking about, listing his wife as Dolina Webster but it lists his parents as James Durrand & his mother as Jessie Durrand nee Finlayson. I am having a bit of trouble trying to figure his connection out with my grandfather because Jessie (his mother) was living with his family in 1901 with an illiegitmate son (I presume) James D Finlayson (1889-1954) & Jessie was sister to my grandfather's mother Henrietta Finlayson. I am presuming again that his named changed to James (Finner) Finlayson DURRAND when he married Donaldina(Dolina) Webster in 1913. So I don't know if his father was also my grandfather's father - James Green DURRAND (1856-1924)

Hi Heather,

I'm hoping Elizabeth will reply as she knows more about the Durrand connection.

Good luck
