Annabella Mackay

Annabella Mackay, 5 Balallan, married Farquhar Macrae from Valtos, Lochs. They lived in Keose Manse and had a family of ten. Annabella married in 1916, three years after Farquhar died to James George Macpherson, Stornoway and they had one son, Donald Alexander. Both her husbands testified at the Deer Raid trial in Edinburgh, one for the defence and one for the prosecution.

Annabella ran the Lewis Coffee House at 13 South Beach Street, Stornoway until 1911. The family moved from South Beach Street to Keose Manse in 1931, around the time the former Lewis Coffee House premises reopened under its former name of the Star Inn.
