Here you will find the journal, written between 1844 and 1853, of Miss Anne Davidson, then living part of the year in the city of Aberdeen and part at Inchmarlo, near Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland & The Memoirs of Gertrude Robertson. Their families were linked by marriage and they met once or twice.
Like many young ladies of her time and class, Anne Davidson wrote something in her Journal every day. This website will allow you to read what she recorded each day 163 years ago, as well as finding out something about the people she met, the places she visited and the times she lived in. Her entries are transcribed as written, including the spelling and punctuation.
Gertrude Robertson’s Memoir was written for her children, using journals as its basis and covers a much longer period in a shorter document. She lived in India, Great Britain and Europe and travelled widely, including to New York. This is also a verbatim transcript of her memoirs
