Christian Sutherland died 1820

Daughter of Rev John Sutherland  from Kilmallie(?)(died1777), minister of Dornoch Cathedral married 1759 Miss Gordon of Embo.
Sister to Aeneas Sutherland (Portrait Edinburgh Castle )

This naive picture is still in the family, is  of Christian Sutherland Bruce , (in charge of Duchess of Sutherland s Letters etc (?))who married William Bruce (banker) in 1793 . She died in Edinburgh . The death notice is spinned  inside the family Bible that James Jefferies now has, 
It reads Mrs Bruce died this afternoon 1/11 St Johns Hill 14th May 1820
