Re: Lair Maps
- Which HENDERSONs are you interested in?
The maps would be available from Arburthnot House but would only have
lair numbers on them - not any names.

I note you mention the names NICOL and HENDERSON. Are you by any chance
descended from Robert Innes Nicol (b 13/6/1846) and his wife Isabella
Grieve Henderson (b 16/11/1847)? If so, then we are related - Robert
Innes Nicol was the half-brother of my grandfather, Matthew Nicol (b
25/9/1861). Also, I can put you in touch with several other members of
the family, including one currently living in Peterhead.
To everyone else on the list: I too would love to know where/how I can
obtain lair maps for the various Peterhead cemeteries, especially the
Old Kirkyard (I assume this is the one often referred to as St Peter's
Kirkyard) and Constitution Street. Numbers alone would not be enough. I
would need family names as well. Would the ANEFHS have such info?
