Last day I put on a picture of the roof of Holm Cottage being replaced. I think that these people Mr and Mrs Brown were connected with the cottage. If anybody has further information that would be useful.

Comment by Sandra Gunn:
This couple are not from Holm Cottage but from Holmfoot Cottage - both cottages were close the the original ford but on opposite sides of the River. Holm Cottage belonged to the Robertson Family and situated on Holm Road
