On the 1881 census there is:-
Margaret Beedie, age 19, Domestic Servant born Pitsligo, Aberdeen.
James Elphiestone (as spelt on the record), age 21, Farm Servant, born
Both working for a farmer Thomas Rennie at Hillhead, Pitsligo, Aberdeen.
Could this be your grandparents ? It is the only Margaret Beedie to fit the
time frame and the only other James Elphinstone is a Teacher at Board School
age 23 living at 1 Belmont Place Aberdeen.
