Midlothian / Re: What happened to Grace Colville?

It would appear that my left eye was not working so early in the morning.     The marriage certificate has her sole parent as Elizabeth Colville.

So we have three census enumerators (1891, 1901, 1911) who got it wrong.
A memorial stone that got it wrong.
A registration that was possibly wrong.

The image of the 1891 census (forgive me Rootschat for I have sinned again).

..... but it does.




Her father at the time of his marriage on 3 August 1886 was an "Orange Planter" with the address of Lane Park Florida.

I would recommend that you look at http://scottishwargraves.phpbbweb.com/scottishwargraves-post-17003.html   

There you will find a photograph of her memorial stone, her name on the Parish War memorial and further information.

The Death notice in "The Scotsman" only mentions that she died at Bradford War Hospital and the only daughter of E.L. Steell, Juniper Green.    Funeral at Colinton Cemetery on Friday 23rd at two o'clock.  Friends please accept this (the only) intimation and invitation.

Her father had in March 1915 written to the paper calling for a Citizens Corps to be raised in the Colinton, Juniper Green and Currie district.

What a difference 12 years doth make.   Try http://boards.ancestry.com/localities.britisles.scotland.mln.general/3308.1/mb.ashx
if that doesn't work - search Royston Dairy, Gorgie, Edinburgh.

Extract from PO directory and of course this: http://www.grantonhistory.org/maps/1896/map10.htm#top
