Hugh Tennant Rodger married Jane Muir Riddall 22 Jan 1862 in Dalry parish - His Father Andrew employed (1841-58) one agricultural labourer ( James Wight) although both Robert and Hugh were residing at home. A female servant (Janet McGill) aged 40 was also employed. Bourtrees farm was situated on what is now the Kelburn Estate between Fairlie and Dalry.
The 1851 census shows Andrew, now aged 70 as a farmer of 900 acres at Bourtrees farm.
Robert, Hugh, James, Andrew, David and Margaret are residing in the family home, however, their occupations are not shown. They would most likely have been employed on the farm. John and Jane, are listed as scholars, as are Martha and Ann Knox who are shown as grand-daughters of Andrew. A servant (Marion McKay) aged 23 completed the household.
