Barbara Gray and Robert Rendall

Barbara Gray, christened in Westray on 19th May 1814, was the fourth and youngest daughter of William Gray and Ann Sandison. She married Robert Rendall in Westray on 16th January 1841, and a few months later, at the time of the 1841 census, the couple were staying at Gorn with Barbara’s uncle George Gray.

Only two children are known to have been born to Barbara and Robert:

  • Robert Rendall, born 2nd April 1842

Barbara and Robert, and their son Robert, were again recorded at Gorn with George Gray in the 1851 census. In the 1861 census they were at Phlehall, Westray.
