MACKINNON/MCKINNON family in Ettrick Scotland
« on: Sunday 14 September 14 19:21 BST (UK) »
Im trying to trace my grandfathers family who lived in Ettrick in the Scottish borders. His name was IAN ANDREW MACPHERSON MACKINNON born 13/11/1918 in Ettrick. His mother and father, WILLIAM AND FLORA MACKINNON who married in London, stayed in Ettrick but he grew up in Inverness with FLORA's family. He had two younger siblings who remained in Ettrick. AGNES and a brother. I know AGNES married ALLAN GEORGE THOMSON but have no more information. My granddad never spoke of his family but his children and grandchildren would like to know more.

Hi , welcome to RootsChat  :)

Is the marriage William Mckinnon / Flora Macpherson 4th quarter 1917 Pancras London ?

Only 2 McKinnon births showing in that period for Ettrick Selkirk(shire) , Ian(1918) and Agnes(1923).

Possible marriage for Agnes , 1951 Hawick Roxburgh( http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/ )

The Scottish birth and marriage certificates will not be available online as they are too recent , they would need to be ordered.

Thanks for the welcome. It is that St Pancras marriage as I have a copy of the marriage certificate. I know about Flora's family and of William's family but only recently found out about Ian's younger sister. He did speak of a brother once but maybe not from that same area. I was hoping to trace any family Agnes and her husband George Thomson may have had. Im visiting a Scotlandspeople Centre to do more research as 15 for the day unlimited access is much better than the credit system and less costly!
Thanks x
