Since penning my posting headed 'Wellbush' , Kemnay , I have been advised as follows : "Wellbush is indeed the name of a farm on the outskirts of the village... It came into being in the early 19th century as the result of amalgamation of holdings and amounted to some eighty acres... It was sometimes known as Greenkirtle and the road it was situated on was Greenkirtle Road. ..Several acres of the present day holding, nearest the village, are at present being developed and around 100 houses being built thereon... The tenant farmer's name at Wellbush at the time of your relative's marriage was William Andrew, who took on the tenancy in the 1850s... His son retired from the farm in the early 20th century... By one of these queer quirks of fate, it is a descendant of the Andrew family who now stays in the farm house (recently rebuilt)... Inverury was indeed so spelt at the time of your forebear's wedding and was changed to the present day spelling in (I think) 1866 as there was considerable confusion with mail deliveries - much of the mail landing at Inveraray on the west . "
James Urquhart , a 20 - year - old Farm Servant was employed on a farm called 'WELLBUSH , until 1860....He then left that Farm in Kenmay , to marry Mary Ann Jackson .... Mary had resided at her Jackson family home at Little Hillbrae, Inverurie , Aberdeenshire... After their marriage at High Street ,Inverurie , in 1860 , the couple seemingly lived at Moss-side of Longfolds and/or Moss-side Cottage , situated in the Kirkton of Bourtie , Aberdeenshire.
