Relationship3rd great-grandaunt of Lorna Henderson.
     Isobel Manson was born c 1803 in Coghill, Watten, CAI, SCT.1,2 She was christened on 29 May 1803 in the Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT; father James shown as "in Coghill" and witnesses: Alexr Doull, Coghill, William Manson, Achoy (assumed to be brother to James as William certainly lived Achoy around that time) (Wendy has 20 May, I've 29th, need to recheck OPR).1,3
     Isobel Manson married David Henderson, son of David Henderson and Christian Stephan, on 8 Feb 1839 at Watten, CAI, SCT, OPR entry (from Wendy) reads: "David Henderson in Freswick in the Parish of Canisbay & Isabella Manson in Coghill on this parish, were contracted in order to Marriage, after the usual proclamation of Banns for three several Sabbaths, published here in the usual place and meeting no objection offered their Marriage was Solemnized on Friday the 8th day of February 1839."4,3,5
     Isobel Manson died bt 1847 - 1851 probably at ?Freswick, Canisbay, CAI, SCT; (and not obvious in 1881 census index).3,6,7 Bel was not indexed as buried at Canisbay, CAI, SCT.8
      Isobel Manson was also known as Bell and her forename was sometimes spelt Isabella.9,10 In Feb 1839 Isobel Manson was living at Coghill, Watten, CAI, SCT.10
     Bel appeared on the census of 7 Jun 1841 at Skirsa, Canisbay, CAI, SCT, with David Henderson, as HENDERSON: David M 45 Pilot; Bell F 38; David M 6 (assumed to be David's son from earlier marriage); James M 1; Magnus M 3m; all b CAI (NB instructions to the enumerators for this census were to round ages to the nearest multiple of 5, children tended to have their ages accurately recorded - or at least as accurate as such things can be. These instructions were not always followed).2,11,12
     Information on the descendants of this line comes from:
Wendy Graham (Wendy's email)
Barry Madden (Barry's email)
Peggy Leard (Peggy's email)
who would welcome contacts from relatives.
Stop press: a further son has just been found. John appears to have lived with his cousin John Smith all his life, which leads me to the conclusion that just possibly, Bel died giving birth to him. He led a tragically short life, drowning in Loch Watten at age 16.13,14

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area. Corrections welcome
