Hi Richard, As per our email exchange and lots of scrutiny on my part, I'm sooo convinced that the girl to the left(next to the door) is Isabella Tennant (Granddaughter of Isabella Davidson Sinclair) and the girl in the middle is her my Mum, Isabella Leggat, (Granddaughter of Isabella Davidson Sinclair)and I'm thinking that the girl to the left is Mary Leggat, my mum's sister. I don't know who the other two girls are.

My mum and her siblings and cousins spent all their childhood summers at Stonepark with Aunty Bessie (as they called her)Linklater/Wilson/Norquay and John Norquay during the 1920's & 30's.
My late husband's mother Betty Norquay lived at Stonepark as did he. Could she be one of the ladies in the photo?

Hi! Maybe she is one of the two? Was she the daughter of John Norquay, who was married to Betsy Linklater? I know that John Norquay had a son, as he signed Betsy's death registry.
