It appears from the Scotland Census that Emily Farquharson was born in Fife in abt 1828

This is the 1851 Census for Emily Shortt

Isabella Robertson 29 - House Servant
Jessie Mckenzie 26 - House Servant

She is also on the 1861, 1871, 1881 and 1901 but it looks like William Henry Shortt may have died before the 1861 Census as he is not on the other census and Emily is listed as Head.

1861 - 3 Ness Bank Inverness
1871 - 4 Nep Back (actually 4 Ness Bank) Inverness - Lodging House Keeper
1881 - 4 Ness Bank Inverness - Annuitant
1901 - Haugh Rd Murray Place No 2 - Own Means

The best place to look for further information is on the Scotalnds People site, pay per view, you should be able to find their marriage and Emily's birth.

a copy from Scotland GRO will give you more details on fathers name and occupation or you can look up the details and get a copy through Scotland People site.

Emily's father John doesn't appear to be on the 1851 Census possibly died, again the marriage for Emily should give details, if he died you should be able to find the death on Scotlands People site.
