Can anyone help me with my research into the GRANT (Leith, Edinburgh >
Newcastle, Northumberland) family history ?

I am trying to trace my great grandmother, Alice Nicol Grant, and think the
following information refers from the 1881 census :
Dwelling: Lothianburn Blacksmiths, Census Place: Colinton, Edinburgh,
Source: FHL Film 0223985 GRO Ref Volume 677 EnumDist 2 Page 8

Daniel GRANT M 48 M Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland Rel: Head Occ: Blacksmith
Jane GRANT M 40 F Dunbar, Haddington, Scotland Rel: Wife
Margaret GRANT 13 F Montreal, Canada Rel: Daur
Alison GRANT 11 F Liberton Kaimes Rel: Daur Occ: Scholar - Married William
Raine (my great grandfather)
Alexander GRANT 9 M Liberton Kaimes Rel: Son Occ: Scholar
Daniel GRANT 4 M Liberton Kaimes Rel: Son
John HUNTER U 17 M Musselburgh Rel: Boarder Occ: Blacksmith

Alice (Alison) Nicol GRANT, married my Gt. Grandfather William RAINE, and
were living at 56 Clara Street, Benwell, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne between about
1896 and 1907. After this time, they moved to 32 Sopweith Street, Benwell,
Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, and lived there until the 1950's.

They had, amongst others I suspect, the following children:

William Alexander Raine (my Grandfather)
Daisy Agnes Raine
Daniel Grant Raine
Jack Raine
Jenny Raine
Elsie Raine

Any help, or leads, would be gratefully received, if not, it would be nice
to hear form any other GRANT researchers.
