Isobel Spring was born in 1762 on a farm called Raemoir in Banchory, outside Aberdeen, the second of five children. Her family moved to Udny before she was 2 years old. In 1796, at age 34, she married Robert Sherrat, a gardener in Nigg, who may have been many years younger than she was. About this same time, her sister Christian, who had married an aging laird, became a widow with a very young child. Isobel and her new husband joined Christian on the Finzean estate in Birse, where Robert became the overseer. They had four children while living at Finzean. Sometime between 1808 and 1812, the family moved to nearby Tillyfruskie where they remained until Robert died in 1818. As a widow, Isobel moved in with her daughter Christian's new family in Woodend. We have no further record of Isobel after 1819. She probably died before about 1830, when her children Christian and Archibald, along with Christian's family, emigrated to Canada.
