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. The 1851 and 1861 censuses tell us that Christina was widowed and had opened a coffee house on High Street. Sometime after 1861 she moved to the Kinning Park district in the southern part of Glasgow, where she died of bronchitis in 1879. She hasn't been found in the 1871 census. She was probably living with her daughter Margaret Rosie and family, since Margaret's daughter was married in Kinning Park in 1876.
