Seeking Leonard (RT?) McNaught born 1880 Newcastleton Roxburghshire
« on: Wednesday 06 September 17 19:56 BST (UK) »
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I am trying to find the birth, death or any record of this person other than the 1891 census where he is living with his father John McNaught and mother Alison in Islington, London.

Image shows Leonard A then possibly T

Given the ages of John & Alison could he have been born under a different surname?

Alison died 1897 aged 52

Good point, but they married in 1873 so he was born late into their marriage, you would expect other children.

Yes Alison died in 1897 and John in 1896 so Leonard was orphaned young, he may well have gone abroad, but where was he in 1881 and where was his birth?

How does Leonard fit into your FH as that can sometimes help.  My gut feeling is that he was an "adopted" child rather than their own
