Anne Bannerman fled removed from Kildonen during the Highland Clearances some time before 1808. Rather than go to Canada with the rest of her family, she chose or was forced to go to Edinburgh to work. There she learned to speak the "Southern Language" and in 1808 married David Ballantyne, 40 years her senior.
