Pitlour House, Strathmiglo, Fife

This is one of the places where my g-g-grandfather William Lindsay worked as a Butler. He was employed by Patrick G. Skene Esq. of Hallyards. The house was located 11/4 miles NW of Strathmiglo.
The Lindsay family occupied East Pitlour Farm during the time William was employed there and appear in the 1841 and 1851 census. I think they moved to Strathmiglo about 1840/41 just after their daughter Margaret was born but for whatever reason the younger siblings were born somewhere other than the local area. They had ties to Edinburgh and Inverkeilor so I'm wondering if Euphemia was visiting family or friends.

  3. Hi Carol, I too have family that worked and lived at Pitlour, My Great, Great Grandad, Walter Crombie, was a Gamekeeper at the house from the 1891 Census until the last census I have which is the 1911. I know very little about that side of my family as my Grandad died at the age of 31. It would be so lovely to know more about this building, it look's beautiful, Alison.
