I think it's likely if he was illegitimate he would be on 1911 with his mothers surname?

Have you located his mother in 1911 or his maternal g/parents?

You would expect him to be with either of the above?

I don't believe they were related.

There is no Alexander Baird birth in EKB, there is no Alexander from EKB who could have been his father. 

The other point I will make refers to his Alexander as an Electrical Engineer.  I would think this would be perhaps an easier route to identify who his father was.  Perhaps the Mitchell Library can help you with this.  He would have been a member of an association and he would have been a graduate of a technical school offering the program.

Hi Rosinish, I think he must have had a relatively good relationship with his Mother as my Gran was named after her which would suggest he was with her but I have been unable to locate him or his Mother on a census.

My Gran was named after Alexander Juniors Mum, she was Agnes Wilson Baird.

Do you have the BC for Agnes Wilson Baird & what are the details of her parents & when/where married?

Hi Annie, I think my post may have been a bit confusing. My Gran, Agnes Wilson Baird, was the daughter of Alexander Baird born in 1906.She was born on the 9th of February 1934.

There is no guarantee of that. It is equally likely that he would be known by his father's name even if he was illegitimate.

Forfarian,
You are of course correct but from what we know of illegitimate kids (at least born in Scotland), given their fathers' surname, my thought was based on the fact Alexander couldn't be found under his fathers' surname in 1911  ;)
