Letter from Isabella Baillie, Budgate to Archibald Baillie, Ware, page 2

The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.

A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.

This document is dated 19 October 1809. It is a letter written by Isabella Baille, (wife of John Baillie d.1797) to her son, Archibald who was, at that time, attending the East India College near Ware. The letter, wriiten at Budgate near Cawdor, gives details of a christening at Kilravock and a large gathering at Budgate. Isabella also includes a plan of a concert held at Kilravock Castle on the 12 October 1809.

By attending the East India College, Archibald was following in his father John Baillie's footsteps. His father had been an army officer in the East India Company. The East India College was established in 1806 to train youths aged 16-18 for appointment overseas
