Paternal side

All Maggie's paternal ancestors came from Scotland, with the Raeburns concentrated in Banff until ~1900, then Aberdeen and Fife: the Rosses concentrated in Fife from the 1780s -1950s. Back a generation and both the Hendersons & the Blacks originated from Fife.

Charles Raeburn 1875 wrote a Family History detailing the lives and characters of his Raeburn and Henderson Ancestors, and on his death in 1955, each of his grandchildren [including Maggie] were given a copy to peruse, aged 30 and then each 10 subsequent years. I have incorporated much of this into this 2017 Web history. On his death his elder son, Charles Raeburn 1909, extended this History to include his father. Their thoughts appear on the pages of these ancestors, in italics
