Duncan Coutts & Margaret McHardy

In 1856 they emigrated to Canada from Milltown of Allargue in the Eastern Scottish Highlands.  They had been tenants on lands associated with the Farquharson family of Invercauld Estate, Braemar, Aberdeenshire.  

In times past the "Coutts" and "McHardy" names were considered a "Sept" or branch of the Farquharson Clan. 

The McHardy sisters originally were tenants on property owned by the Forbes family of Castle Newe and Edinglassie, Strathdon, Aberdeenshire. 

It is very likely that in Scotland the Coutts were Presbyterians and the McHardy were Catholic.
