I am looking for any information on James Grant born c1796 (gamekeeper) married to Janet/Jessie?? I know of one son Alexander John Grant born c1825 Banff married Annn Jane Kendall in Workington Cockermouth.
James and wife some years later ended up England as a gamekeeper on the Duke of Rutlands estate in Baslow.

Even if you do have all this already, it was fun hunting it...
