Help. John R Scott / George woid
« on: Saturday 26 October 13 13:19 BST (UK) »
Hi
I need help. John was my Grans grandad.
Here parents were George wood and Emily scott.
From
Borthwuck sheilds. John I have discovered was a carpenter own undertakers .
Ormiston farm I have also, not sure if that's where he lived,
Any help would be great don't know wife / partner to John, if there were any more kids to Emily

I know George wood died 12/2/73 don't know where
Emily died 27/2/36. My gran brought up the family but I don't know who the family was.. As she's also passed away,

Tessa

Hi ,

Do you know how old Emily was when she died ?
Have you looked at the marriage certificate for George Wood and Emily Scott ?

I've had a look for marriages in England/Scotland between 1910 and 1936 for a George Wood and Emily Scott , nothing really stands out  :-\

Was your gran born in Scotland ? If so her parents marriage details should be on her birth certificate.
If the birth was after 1912 you would need to order the certificate from Scotlandspeople as it wont be available online.

Were the parents John R Scott and Lizzie Anderson ?

The 1901 Census transcription has Emily K E R Scott b. c1895 Hawick , father John R Scott , mother Lizzie A Scott , living Hawick Roxburgh.
