Principal Tulloch [14 April 2014]

Interesting information about how Principal Tulloch was descended, ultimately, from the Orkeny Tullochs:

"P. 40 (b).—The bridge of Thurso is said to have been built by Robert Tulloch, master mason, son of John Tulloch and Christina Sinclair, of the Ulbster family of Brims, whose daughter Elizabeth was baptized 15th April, 1759. John came from Orkney before 1737, the date of his first marriage, to be factor to Alexander, Earl of Caithness (Lord Hemer), who died in 1765. He held the position twelve years. Robert was married to Christian Gunn, in Halkirk, on 1st January, 1796. His brother James was father of Professor John of Aberdeen and five ministers. Their mother, an early widow, brought them up with difficulty at Achrascar, near Achinabest, and they got their education at Reay under the Rev. William Munro, A.M., afterwards schoolmaster of Thurso. A third brother, John, was a Caithness schoolmaster. Robert’s sons were John, also a county teacher, and Murdoch. The late Principal Tulloch was said to be descended from a brother of the earl’s factor." - [2]--AndrewRT 22:56, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
