Hi,

I have just been sent this info from another member on Genes, she had looked at Scotlands People site

William Walker & Mary Bruce marriage on 22nd May 1865 at 14 Willington Street Dundee.
That Mary being the daughter of Alexander Bruce & Ann Bruce m.s. Wilcox

On 1871 census Mary Walker is 33 Seaman's wife says (Stonehaven) likely Kincardinshire living at 15 Yeats Lane Aberdeen with children Alexandrina, Andrew , Mary

Would like to find Mary on 1841,1851 and 1861 census records to help me further with my research.

Hi

Do you know what Mary's father Alexander's occupation was on her marriage cert?

Were both Alexander and Ann still alive in 1865?

I think it would probably be good if you actually get the details of Mary's marriage from scotlands people for your self then you will know what her fathers occupation was and whether both her parents status ie alive or deceased. It will also give Mary's address at time of marriage and witnesses. Who if they are related to Mary will possibly help find her on the censuses

As higgsy mentions, the marriage cert will help you now.

I can't see a death for Mary after 1871 in Scotland easily. Did she and the family move away after then? No more children showing as born in Scotland after Andrew's birth in Aberdeen in 1870...

I know the children moved to yorkshire. Andrew Walker married Mary Turner Alton 1894, Alexandrina Walker married Fred Wood and Mary Bruce Walker married W Scholfield. Don't know where William Walker and Mary Walker Nee Bruce went
