|Notes||Please note that this manuscript is extremely difficult to read as the correspondents employed cross writing in their letters. Family correspondence. Grant was the youngest son of the Rev. James Grant (1790-1853), minister of Nairn, and his wife Christina (d.1877). His brothers Alexander (1820-1860) and George (1825-55) were respectively an officer in the Madras Army and a merchant in Calcutta and Rangoon. His sister Margaret (1823-1913) married in 1845 the Rev. Peter Mackenzie (1818-1913), minister of Urquhart (Dingwall). All corresponded regularly, giving a vivid picture of family doings and life in India in the 1850s.|
