I have discovered another link in the Crescent – between Mary Gertrude Fraser, the daughter of Rev Robert William Fraser who lived at no 1 from 1868 to 1873 and the Cownie family. On 24th July 1894 Mary became the second wife of William Cownie, who was the brother of Thomas Ogilvy Cownie and James Gibb Cownie, both of who lived in the Crescent.


About Joanne Lamb

I live in a Victorian house in Edinburgh, and started to investigate its history - I then got hooked, and investigated the whole street! the result was a book, which you can read about on my website, I'd love to hear from other people who are interested in local history
