"It's very much a
long shot but I wondered if you had any info on the Queensferry before
My family were sailors and hoteliers in
North Queensferry from 1687 (when Alex McRitchie
married Helen Walworth) to 1890 when the bridge opened and took away their
business almost overnight.
I note the ferry crossing is described as
slow, disagreeable and dangerous, so it was definitely a McRitchie job."
