Balintore - Vass family

Surnames: VASS
I'd appreciate help in tracing the families of my great grandparents - Isabella Vass, born in 1841, married Andrew Vass in 1861. Andrew Vass born in 1836, was the son of Andrew Vass, fisherman and Mary Munro. Isabella Vass was the daughter of Nicholas Vass, fisherman and Isabella Skinner. They lived in Balintore after they were married.

So far I haven't been able to find any records for Nicholas Vass, Isabella Skinner, Andrew Vass or Mary Munro.

Claire: I have just logged on to the message board, and I found your query regarding the Vass family. In the 1881 Census, I found the following two entries of a total of thirteen. I hope these may be of some help to you: Regards, Ann

Hello

I have an Andrew Vass in my tree and also several Skinners who all came from Nigg, Shandwick and Balintore.

I've also recently been to Nigg and have a photograph of a Grave stone of a Vass family.

If intrested email me directly.

Regards
