From Betty Burnett Longformacus Road Edinburgh

"I (Betty Burnett) met George Esslemont who lived in Keith. He had a daughter Katherine or Kate, as I knew her, by his first wife. George later remarried and Kate had step brothers and sisters but I do not know their names. Kate and my mother were very close, being cousins and this bond was further strengthened when Kate married my father's brother!"

"My name is Keith Esslemont. My Grandfather was George Esslemont, reputedly born 1871. We started our research at the begining of this year after an e-mail from Bob Esselmont in Canada.........Bob's web page had a few innacuracies on it so do not take all the George Esslemont info for Gospel. We know that George used to take members of the second family (in the 1920's) to visit an old couple Mr&Mrs Wilson in Aberchirder but had not as yet identified them. We also knew of visit's by one of the children of his first wife to Rayne but again did not know who was being visited. We knew of visit's to the Family in the first half of this century by an auntie Annie..... You state George was born 19/7/1871. However from his marriage certificate, he would have probably have been born in 1873 , what was your source? I got the same date as you from IGI but I only examined the Index entry. By for now"

"Hello Declan ... We can see that you have put in a lot of hours researching your family from your web-site which is very impressive. There was one thing which struck us though - you have a James Esslemont down as a child of Helen and James born in 1861 somewhere and Bob Esselmont in Canada also has a James in 1861 being born to Andrew Esselmont & Isobel Marr on 27/2/1861 in Tyrie. Is it possible that this is the same birth or is it a coincidence? What do you think? We have another little snippet of info for you. About 1944 a young Irish girl of about 18 years of age (approx) visited the family in Keith. Do you think this might have been one of your family? We were very sorry to hear that you had lost that photo of Helen Barclay as we would be surprised if anyone had a picture in Keith which was so old. We are making enquiries about any old photos. We downloaded a file from the family history society in King Street Aberdeen. It is an alphabetical list of names taken from memorial stones in Aberdeenshire. We have copied and pasted the Barclay ones for you - it includes Helen Barclay who is buried with James Esslemont in Auchterless u/p. We have also included the Chalmers and the Esslemonts. It is an Office 95 excel file called DECLAN. We have scanned in a photo of George Esslemont for you to peruse. We are still in the very early stages of our family tree as we only started after getting a nudge from Bob Esselmont in Canada before Xmas 98. By the way, Bob in Canada had my father Robert Teunion Esslemont down as deceased but he is still going strong as are his twin brother and sister who used to visit the Wilsons with their father George. The twins were 80 this month. They are from the second family of George hence the sketchiness about the first wife and dates of family events. The first wife died in childbirth and is buried with her baby in Keith (Broomhill cemetery). The grave does not have a stone with details it is a ceramic garland under a glass bell-jar. George is also buried there with his second wife Agnes Teunion. George died about 1944, Agnes about 1936. They were married on 10/1/1916 in Keith. "
