More information

Marion Jobson – named after her mother[1] was the fourth daughter of David Jobson and Marion Crawford. Three sisters Marion, Helen and Anne moved into Crawford Lodge in the early 1850s following the death of their mother. Another sister, Mary, married their neighbour to the west John Symers, living in St Helens. William Baxter, the stepson of their fifth sister Elizabeth owned Ashcliff to the east. The three villas were designed by Baxter’s architect Charles Wilson. Controversially the ground along the foreshore of the Tay, between the Dundee-Perth railway line and the escarpment, became part of the garden ground of thesevillas.[4]
