Napier witnesses: Alexander Morrison

Alexander Morrison was a witness to the Napier Commission during its session at Stornoway on 9 June 1883. He is listed as a commission merchant, which makes it likely that he would move about in the country. There is one Alexander Morrison of about the age of this witness in enumaration district 88 in 1881, (Alexander Morrison was aged 29 in 1883), but he is a builder in Bayhead. The evidence available at this stage is insufficient to make a reliable connection to any individual in the 1881 census.

Further information welcome.
