Elyza Fraser

Dates: 
Died 1814, aged 80

Elyza Fraser was the owner of Castle Fraser, and improved the estate during the late 18th century.

Andrew Wight, in his report on "The Present State of Husbandry in Scotland 1783" stated "this Lady is a miracle for farming. Her genius must be uncommon, to excel so eminently in a vocation that nature deems to have confined to the male sex."
