Hi Rosezi ,

Was this their marriage ?
William Banks / Jessie Carnaby 1896 Midlothian.

There is a death for a Jessie Banks(other surname Carnaby) 1943 Wick Caithness , born c1860.

The birth certificate for James should confirm his parents marriage , that marriage certificate should give you the parents of William and Jessie.

This appears too be them in 1901.

1901 Census
17 Kirkhill St,
Wick, Caithness
William BANKS, 43, Head, Mar, Grocers Porter, born Wick, Caithness
Jessie Banks, 37, Wife, Mar, born Wick
Catherine B Banks, 7, Daug, born Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire
Christina Banks,   3, Daug, born Wick
Williamina Banks, 2, Daug, born Wick
Jessie Banks, 10mths, Daug, born Wick

Looks to me William was married before;
Also there is Daug Catherine B on 1901 Census born before the 1896 Marriage to Jessie Carnaby

1891 Census
Henrietta St,
Wick, Caithtness
William BANKS, 35, Head, Mar, Grocers Porter, born Wick
Catherine Banks, 28, Wife, Mar, Grocers Wife, born Wick

1881 they are Married also;
Kilimster, Wick;
William Banks, 26, Head, Mar, Ploughman
Catharine Banks, 19, Wife, Mar

As ev said downloading Certs from Scotlandspeople will give you some answers and confirm if I have the right info above.

Then when you have that info come back and we can help more.

Marriage William Banks / Catherine Campbell 1879 Wick Caithness.

Also a death Catherine Banks(other surname Campbell) 1895 Wick Caithness , born c1862.

That might match up with the information Trish has found.

Banks family from Wick and Cannisbay
« Reply #7 on: Monday 04 April 16 17:34 BST (UK) »
I am researching the Banks family tree from Wick. I have a William Banks born 1860 in Cannisbay, who married Christina Steven in 1896 (his 2nd wife). Now searching for his parents. On Scotlandspeople I have found two possible births, 1822 - parents, William and Helen Mowart, or 1833 William and Ann Poulson. Or am I following the wrong Banks's?
