51 "John Florence in the parish of Culsalmond had a child born in fornication with Anne Robertson and baptised George" This from the baptism record 11 Aug 1821 Culsalmond
No subsequent marriage found between this couple but Ann married ----------Florence, slate quarrier This is mentioned on the death certificate of son George along with reported father John Florence, crofter and gravedigger

Ann Robertson subquently married a William Florence 6 Feb 1830 Rhynie and Essie
Researcher Irene Buchan says "I am inclined to believe that this Ann was mother of our George" I agree

The 1881 Census lists a Widowed Ann Florence age 79 born Gartly and living at Bridgefoot Oyne with an Elizabeth Grant lodger born Aberdeen This may well be our Anne Robertson who died in Bridgefoot Oyne in 1889 The age is slightly out from the birth date 
Robertson, Anne (I2272)

!881 Census Alexander Gray Millbithill Marnoch Banff Occupation Agricultural Labourer age 56 born Banff Wife Catherine age 54 and three grandchildren George Gray age 7 Alexander Gray age 5 and Mary Kate Gray age 2 The first grand child George is the illegimate son of Elsie and Mary Kate is the illegitimate daughter of Catherine but Alexander age 5 is a mystery I have a birth registration dated 15 Nov 1875 for him father Alexander Gray and mother Mary Callam registered Marnoch but I suspect he is not "ours" and should have been listed as a boarder

An Inventory of the personal estate of Alexander Jaffray is drawn at Aberdeen on the 24th day of December 1863 He died intestate on the first day of November 1863 The estate is valued at £290 and 13 shillings Debts due to the deceased include £5 from George Murray of Craigmill Pittodrie Somewhat drily the assessor says "Upon this debt no value can be put" so it is not included
I asume that the Inventory is necessary for the handover of the estate to his son Alexander Jaffrey who is about to enter upon the possession and management of the deceased's personal estate

John Smith age 30 Margaret Smith age 20 (Not certain about Margaret) Cirsten Smith age 16(presumably Christian ) then three labourers William Mill age 25 Francis Smith age 15 William Mennie age 15

The first census 1841 was very suspect as regards ages and so it would appear here Ages had to be rounded up or down to the nearest 5 years and also Margaret appears to be a stray as we have not got her on the list of baptisms for this family
