I am looking for any further information on the Carter family,

Charles Taylor Carter (B31/5/1899 Balnabroich? , Dunbeath) was my Grandfather - he married Annie Bremner Sutherland whose parents were Georgine Bremner Sutherland and William Miller Sutherland (see my earlier post). The Carter family home was Ivy Cottage, Dunbeath.

Charles' parents were William Carter (fisherman) and Margaret Helen Sutherland who married on 20/4/1894

William's parents were William Carter and Janet MacKay (Dunbeath) they married on 4/1/1856. Janet's parents were John MacKay and Catherine Grant.

William's parents were Charles Carter (B15/9/1805) and Margaret Polson they married on 14/2/1829 in Latheron.

I believe Charles' father was William but i have no further information other than this.

If you have any further information please let me know..

My Great-Grandmother was Jane Carter, born 1867, died 1942. Her husband was William McKenzie of Ramscraigs, Dunbeath.

Her father and mother were William Carter and Janet Mckay.

Her brothers were Charles, and William Carter, your great-grandfather.
