Annie MacAskill was born in 1895, the daughter of John MacAskill and Effie MacLeod, cottars on 17 Ruisgarry (Brusda) then 9 Ruisgarry (Gunhill). Annie was a pupil at Berneray School from 1901. The family moved to Rhuvanish shortly before her mother’s death in 1908. Annie had left school with the Board’s permission a few weeks earlier, presumably to help care for her mother. She was shown as housekeeper in the 1911 census. 

Annie became a domestic servant and married fisherman & crofter James MacCuish in 1930. Annie died in childbed following the birth of their second child in 1935.
