      Hello Keith,

      A delayed reply to your answer to my enquiry about the Chalmers family - I have just
      realised a connection with the Baigrie family that may or may not be relevant.

      Andrew Chalmers' first wife was Elizabeth Anderson - they married in Peterhead in 1848. I
      think I may have found her in the 1841 census. In the household of Jean Baigrie (age 60,
      Independent means) at Netherton of Invereddie, Longside, were George Baigrie, 36,
      Shoemaker, Elizabeth Baigrie, 34, Ag. Lab., and Elizabeth Anderson, 15, Independent
      means, all born in Aberdeenshire. I can't be sure that this is the correct Elizabeth
      Anderson, but the marriage record says she was from Longside, and Andrew Chalmers was
      a shoemaker which is another possible link. Any thoughts? Do these Baigries
      belong to your family?

      Mary
