Lanarkshire / Re: A72 and Honeybank Rd. Carluke

Hi harrywrag and hanes eulu, thank you for the response.

I have an image of the original census document which shows at least 6 houses (30-35) in Honeybank Road, Parish of Carluke. I referenced this to the A72 from the position of Honeywell Farm which still exists, so I am pretty confident it is the A72.

Lanarkshire / A72 and Honeybank Rd. Carluke

My great grandparents are listed in the 1901 Scottish census as residing at no 30 Honeybank Rd in Carluke. Honeybank Rd has now become part of the A72. I have looked at the section of A72 through Carluke on Google Maps and there are some turn of the century houses in existence - any ideas how I can translate 30 Honeybank Rd into a current address? Intend visiting Scotland soon and want to visit as many of the ancestor sites that I can locate.

Hi I followed up on Catherine Low, but it does not seem to fit. The Allans seemed to always name their first born sons John. Found two John Allans, boy of the right ages, who do not appear to be with their family on the night of the 1841 census. Working on the premise that John was staying with relatives or friends that night.

Thank you Rosie- found a copy of the death certificate with the dod listed as 1904. Unfortunately the parents are just listed as deceased, no names.

The witnesses to the marriage were Joseph Fraser (father of the bride) and Robert Annan- this is not a transcription error as I have viewed an image of the original certificate. Could have been an insertion error on the certificate as it seems just one person made all the entries on the certificate, and Robert is a common first name in the family.)

Have not found a death certificate for John Allan. In general I am finding it most difficult to get access to death certificates - any advice in this area i.e. best site to use?

Thank you.

Thank you for your suggestions.

John (Jnr) died in 1903 and I obtained an image of this tombstone in Wilton Cemetery in Lanarkshire.
He was married in Carluke and his address is shown as Galahill. His parents are both shown with the name of Allan on the marriage certificate. John(snr) is listed as a deceased "Farm Servant." (His bride,Mary Frase,  mother's maiden name is shown, so maybe Catherine was born an Allan.)

One of the later census returns shows John(Jnr) as having being born in Edinburgh.

I tried following up on the possibility of John(Snr) being the spouse of Catherine Low, but cannot find enough evidence to prove the relationship. Similarly with Catherine Allan in Mid Calder.

Thank you again for your suggestions

I traced my paternal great grandparents, John and Mary Fraser Allan,  to their marriage in Carluke in Lanarkshire, Scotland in 1857.  The marriage certificate shows Johns' parents to be John and Catherine Allan. I have checked Parish Records available from Scotlands People, British Newpaper Archives and Family Search but I can find no trace of the parent's marriage or their births. Any suggestions on where else I can search. There are numerous records of earlier generation Allans in the area, and if I can make this link I can hopefully identify a few more generations.
