Your Contributions

These contributions are from Brenda & figure the Jappy fishing family from Buckie

My Great-grandparents Joseph and Jane ( Jeannie , Janet she was known by all of these names it must have been a girl thing in those days!!) Jappy.

6 girls the one on the bottom left is my Grandmother Mary Jappy. The oilskins from the men are at the side of the shed along with the barrels.

Again same picture but we believe this is the 3 sisters. Jean ann, Maggie ann, Mary ann,(my grandmother) Jappy. There was a 4th sister but she was disabled and worked in the factory that made the oilskins in Buckie?

Picture of the steam Drifter supposed to have been owned by my Great grandfather Joseph Jappy. As you can see its a picture (oil painting actually!)

The picture below is of BCK 62 Rochomie, believed to be the subject of the above oil painting. (webmaster)
