My grandfather John Smith Welsh, I believe was a gardener here at Kinnaird house in the early 1920's after he served in the first world war in the Royal army medical corp's.
I also think he met his wife(my grandmother-Jessie Jackson Craig)here as she worked as a cook.
If anyone has any info on my family, I would be very grateful.

My dad was born here, and my grandparents both worked for the Orr family as Cook and Chauffeur in the 1920's. My sisters and I were lucky enough to be allowed to look around the house by the present owner a few years ago. This is a great photo!
