Jane Utterson lookup please
« on: Tuesday 04 November 08 15:14 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

I am trying to trace my wife's great grandmother through the BC of her grandmother, who was given up for adoption in about 1915. She was born to a Jane Utterson, and the BC shows her name as Phyllippa Russel Docherty Utterson, 42 Westend Tweedmouth, Berwick Upon Tweed: 31-Aug-1915...

I think the G.Gran might have had the surname Kerse before she was an Utterson. My wife's aunt, daughter of gran, said that gran spoke about being adopted and that her birth mum had moved to Australia.

Let me know if you can confirm this in any way

Thanks in advance
Kevin

In the December qtr 1915 a Jane R Utterson married Robert McKelvie in Gateshead Durham

The 1891 census shows her b Scotland 1886 but living in Durham with parents James & Helen.   

Might be worth checking whether the above Jane was Jane Russel Utterson

Nothing to suggest emigration as freebmd has 2 births for McKelvie/Utterson in 1919 and 1921 both in Gateshead

Hi Kevin

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

Clever you Carol  ;) There certainly is a Jane RUSSELL UTTERSON showing on Scotlands People. Born in 1885 in Eyemouth, Berwickshire (GROS Ref: 739/00 0099).

Not seeing that birth entry in any quarter of 1915 (and that was checking on the full BMD index). You probably need to check back with who has given you the info to verify details.

Thanks for all the replies, I will see if I can get a photocopy of the original BC to confirm the details. One thing is for sure... Phyllis (Phyllippa Utterson) does exist... ;)

I will try to remember to report back.
