EVELYN: Amelia married James [Stevens] Linklater who came from Orkney. He was a wholesale provision merchant, trading with the Baltic countries. Amelia was a pretty but incredibly stupid woman. Mother said that Amelia was in love with Johnnie Crawford (see Aunt Betsy) but both grandmother and Aunt Alicia put their feet down on that.

There were six children of Amelia's marriage, the younger ones quite small when Uncle James died in his early forties, of Bright's disease. [In fact he was 49.] He failed in his business and, like your grandfather, found financial worry and ill health too much for him. Naena and I knew Aunt Amelia very well but Uncle James died when I was a baby and his youngest son, James, only 3 years old. Aunt Amelia died of cancer in 1917.
