Navigating the seas and navigating the countryside was part of the job for a small, rural Scottish family, who managed to escape to England and survive the Great War.
A family of six survived the Great Catastrophe and settled in Scotland, where they had plenty of space and plenty of food.
They took up farming in the nearby village of Cairngorm, where their first son, Edward, was born.
But by the age of 13, they were forced to leave their farm and move to the countryside in order to get enough to survive, so they moved to the Cairns and settled there.
They would later be known as the Caird Family, and they have lived there ever since.
Mr Caird, who died in 2018, had been living at Cairnhill, a village about 25 miles from his family’s house, when the war broke out.
Edward Caird was born in the Cairsons farmhouse, and the family’s second son, William, was sent to the Royal Military School in Glasgow in 1917.
They returned to Cairnanhill, where Mr Caird continued to run his family farm, and Mr Caulders son Edward became a police officer.
Edward Cairndens wife and children also remained in Scotland during the war, and in the years after the war they built a cottage on their farm, which was later demolished.
In 1940, Mr Cairnton died in a car accident in Edinburgh, leaving his two young daughters to take up farming again.
He left his wife and sons behind, and his daughter Mary died in 1957.
He passed away in 2017, but his wife’s remains were not returned.
A new search for his remains has begun, and a new team has been formed to help trace the remains.
The search team is led by Dr Fiona MacLeod, a senior lecturer in history at the University of Edinburgh.
Dr MacLeod is currently working with a team of scientists to analyse DNA from the remains, as well as a number of other types of DNA that has been recovered from the family.
She is currently in discussions with the Ciarngons to determine the date of death, and how it was brought about.
Dr Cairnells wife was buried in a local churchyard in Cairnon, near Cairnn’s farmhouse.
In the decades since, the remains have been painstakingly examined by archaeologists.
Dr Maddy D’Arcy, from the University’s Museum of Archaeology, said: “It’s a great mystery and it’s really exciting to be able to get to the bottom of what happened in that time, because it’s a significant period in the family history.”
We know that Edward was very much involved in farming at that time and his father was a farmer too, and so it’s clear that there was a connection between them and the Cavanese and his family.
“The family moved to Edinburgh in 1957, where the family settled into a comfortable home in a quiet neighbourhood, with a view across the Crayn River.
The family had lots of space to run about, but they were not allowed to grow their own food, as was the norm in the days before the war.”
There were no gardens or lawns or any other places where people could gather,” Dr MacLeod said.”
They were in the country, so it was quite isolated.
“After the war ended, the Cartsons moved back to Craynanhill.
They continued to have plenty of room to grow and enjoy, but were still restricted from growing their own vegetables, which they had been doing since the war by law.”
After Edward died in 1958, the family continued to work in Craynn, which became a small settlement after the village was renamed Cairne.”
But it’s also a fact that we now know that a lot of their vegetables were not harvested and the crop was not harvested in the early stages of the war.”
After Edward died in 1958, the family continued to work in Craynn, which became a small settlement after the village was renamed Cairne.
The Cairntons were the first to have a new townhouse built in Ciarnhill in the 1920s, and it was here that the family was able to set up shop.
“It was quite an unusual and exciting time for the family in the 1930s,” Dr D’Archcy said.
The farmhouses and cottages that the Cartners built and the land they grew their food on were still around by the 1950s, when they moved back home to Ciarnanhill and built their own house.
Dr D’Artcy said that many of the items they would need to live on would have been carried back to the village in the form of tools, but many items like books, maps and letters would be lost along the way.
“So many of these items were lost, but the family would have carried them on to Cernunn,” she said.A few
