Hi
Trying to find out about John Dixon at  the Dumbarton Glassworks
Jacob had a lot of wife's/mistresses
Trying to find out what happened to two of them
Ann Fenton with whom he had a daughter Mary Dixon All we know is she was born in Dumbarton
Mary Corwal had a son called George. and again not sure about birthdates  but again born in Dumbarton.
Other wife's/mistresses was
catherine Ann McCauley (seen different spellings on surname) married 1791
and Mary Ann McCully
Mostly we are looking to what happened to Ann and Mary and the children as we are not able to find out anything
So any one maybe got a hint on where we can start to look
Thanks
Anna

Hi
Just joined this forum and saw your post re Jacob Dixon.  Wondered if you were any further on since this post.  My main interest is in finding out more about Jean/Jane Dixon widow of Jacob Dixon junior.  Her son Anthony was my grandmother's grandfather and I remember her talking of Grandpa Tony.  Jane and her family appear to have come out finatially well after all the appeals re the will, however their circumstances after 1831 suggest otherwise.  Any information you have would be much appreciated.

Very interested to read that the children of Jacob Dixon and Jean Brown received the bulk of the inheritance of their grandfather.  Wasn't it usual in Scottish Law for the eldest son to inherit from his father?  My understanding was that the continuing court cases took all the money and there was nothing left.   Thank you for leaving the link to the result but unfortunately I cannot get it large enough to read.
