I am sorry I don't have any more to add to this but I am reasearching the name Aitchison in Dalkeith and wondered if there is a connection here. I do have some information and my family moved from Scotland to Hull in Yorkshire. This was my mums maiden name.
Maybe we could help each other?

Adding to what has already been said (esp. Monica's suggestion on contacting SP), Ernest's death record of 1910 gives his parents as Ernest Peter Becker, farm steward (dec.) and Marie Antoinette Becker m.s. Perfect (also dec.).

Tom,

You are a star!  Thanks very much.  I agree with you re St Stephen's Street as being the missing address.

Thanks again,

I checked out the Becker's in the 1901 census; most of the Becker's are from the same family - also from Prussia.  Who knows: relations?

Hi there,

I have been researching my husbands family tree for several years now.

His grandmother was Ida Blanche Becker ...daughter of Ernest Becker and Kate (Catherine) Aitchison.  Kate was the daughter of Thomas Salmond Aitchison and Jemima Brown.

Which line are you descended from?

Just noticed you referred to the entry on Wills and Testaments for Thomas S Aitchison. I paid to view this entry..and was a bit disappointed to discover that it was for Catherine's brother, the piano tuner who died young before his father.

Did you find out that Thomas Salmond Aitchison the father, remarried to a much younger woman after Jemima died?  Don't think that went down too well with his children.

Hi June,

Ida's brother, Frank, married my great aunt, Jessie Ina Roxburgh.  Her brother, Thomas McQuaters Roxburgh was my grandad.

I'll have to investigate Thomas Salmon Aitchison and his second wife!

Yours aye,
