Watson nicol and Possibly Skene families?
« on: Tuesday 27 October 15 16:18 GMT (UK) »
Looking for information on David Watson and Catherine Skene. One of there daughters was named Mary Watson and she had a daughter wit William Nicol named Ann Ramsay Nicol. Somebody mentioned on here that William and Mary never actually married. Mary Watson was born 1824, Fordoun and died 1878 Stonehaven. Would like to see any possible census records linking her to David andCatherine? Thank you
Molly

Thank you Malky  :) could somebody help me figure out how I would possibly go about perhaps going back another generation? Am I right in thinking because it's before 1855 a marriage certificate wouldn't have the parents names on it? I've bought a few on Scotlandspeople before and pre 1855 they're rather vague  ???

Have you looked at this death cert. on SP ?

David Watson 45 labourer
Catherine Watson 40
Ann Watson 11
Amelia Watson 6

If that is the correct family Mary Watson may have been working away from home by that time.

Hello Ev,

No I hadn't seen that death cert but I'll most definitely follow it up! It could well be the family in the 1841 census and as you say, Mary would've been about 17 at the time so she could well of been away for work  :)

Hello,
I've bought the death certificate that was mentioned and under the fathers name it says something like 'shennie Skene' is that anything that anybody has heard of because I haven't!   ???  :)
