Lamington Street, Tain

This hand-tinted postcard of Lamington Street was posted in Gollanfield in 1905, by a visitor to Tain. It shows the view to the west, looking along the High Street, with the Royal Hotel at the end of the street. The railings, steps and trees on the right-hand side no longer exist.

I wonder if our relative could this from his house. He was Andrew Ross married to Jessie Munro and he lived in Lamingston Street in 1912.

My great great great grandfather JOHN ROSS TERTIUS lived at 10 Lamington Street with his wife Isabella around 1830.We think the house was built as part of their marriage settlement.

Hello Helen Ross. I have a Jessie Munro in my family that I think married a Ross. Jessie was born about 1856 in Alness. She was living in my G.G.Grandfather's house in 1881 census, but was not there in 1891. Anything sound familiar?

Robin, the Andrew and Jessie Helen talks about were both born in 1867 and so can't be your relatives. I am, however, related to Andrew Ross and Jessie Munro who were living at 25 Lamington Street in the 1901 census. If anyone has any more information they would like to share on the family, please get in touch!

My family ran a drapers from 21-23 Lamington Street. My father and uncle were born there in 1921. I think it would have been called Hugh Anton Ross. The son of the family went to South Africa and died aged 42 of Spanish flu. His sister, Eva Ross Williams lived at Arabella after she married. She was the organist at the Episcopalian church prior to marriage and there is a plaque on the wall which was put there by one of her sisters to remember 2 other sisters.
