Dear Ken, I am a descendant of your Janet's sister Henrietta!You said Janet was daughter of a) Isobel Forsyth b) Isobel Ross ??
Alexander Phimister’s children Alexander, 1771 (at one time dyer in Cawdor) Elspet 1773 (she married Davidson, dyer at Faillie) Margaret 1774 Marjory 1776 Janet 1778 -James Watson in 1796 at Urquhart,Moray They later moved to Edinburgh and had a son William. Henrietta 1780 (she married Duncan Macgillivray, dyer) Charlotte 1782
Charlotte Phimister didn't marry and worked as Head Housekeeper of Cawdor Castle. Alexander Senior and Junior were dyers at the Waulkmill - and my ancestor Duncan Macgillivray was apprenticed to them, and later married Henrietta.Their grand-son Duncan went to Tobago and became a cocoa planter circa 1878.
The Waulkmill at Cawdor apparently washed, etc the blankets and uniforms of the regiments at Fort George.
There was an Alexander Phimister at Inverness Academy circa 1810, who I take to be of this family.
Elspet married Davidson at Faillie (also dyer) and there were lots of children - I don't know what became of this family.
