Found – Another Lady Janet October 10, 2015

I’m finding more Lairds and Ladies in my Scottish ancestry.  It’s fun,  Buildings, Scotland - Rosyth Castle, Fife - aerial shot  particularly when it’s a Lady Janet.   This is one of Lady Janet’s castles – Forsyth Castle.

Excerpts from Wikipedia…..Rosyth Castle is a fifteenth century ruined tower house ….Fife, Scotland. It originally stood on a small island in the Firth of Forth accessible only at low tide, and dates from around 1450, built as a secure residence by Sir David Stewart, who had been granted the Barony of Rosyth in 1428.

Oops – I think maybe I’m counting this Lady Janet twice.  I’ve somehow discovered her before.
