     Christina was born probably in Duncansbay, Caithness, to Gilbert Laird and Christina Dunnet. She married and lived in the Gills/Mey area before moving to Wick about 1834. After James died in 1846, she opened a coffee house and rooms for rent on the second floor of a building facing the market on High Street. More about this can be found in her son Donald's biography. After 1871 she moved to Kinning Park, Glasgow, where her daughter Margaret Rosie lived, and she died there.
