Lair C241 and C243 also belong to a Davidson, which would suggest a
connection. Lair C243 has a Mary Robertson wife of Wm Davidson died
1762 age 72. So this could take you back to the 1600's.
If you could let me know your snail address again, I will send a copy of
the three lairs.
Not sure if you have your ancestors from the 1851 Peterhead Census, so
District 4, page 4, No.15, 9 Maiden Street
Margaret Lowrie, head, wid, 50, Shipmaster's Wid, Peterhead
Bathia Lowrie, dau, U, 18, Teacher of music, Peterhead
William Lowrie, son, U, 16, App. Seaman, Peterhead
Ann Watson, serv, U, 17, House Serv, Peterhead
Will have a look at the 1841 census for Lowrie and Mary Davidson.

Liverpool, 31/5/1841 to 30/9/1841, James Lowrie, born Peterhead, Master.
If you are interested I can let you know how to obtain the Seaman's
Ticket, which will give a physical description of your James Lowrie as
well as date of birth. Do you have access to a LDS FHC ?
