Looking for info on Maternal Great Grandmother - Lanarkshire
« on: Thursday 12 October 17 23:48 BST (UK) »
Please bear with me as I'm very new to this - but I have reason to believe my maternal great grandmother, Josephine Helen Showell Carter (maiden Clark or Clarke) was born in Lanarkshire Scotland on or around October 7, 1893.  I'm finding conflicting details regarding spelling of her various names, as well as her parents.    I believe their names were James William Clark/Clarke and Helen Hastie/Hasting.

If it helps narrow it down at all, she married my Great Grandfather Roy William Carter on June 2, 1915 in Fredericton, New Brunswick (CANADA)

Any details you could provide would be amazing!  I have a family tree started on Ancestry and have only recently started tracing my roots as I am an adult adoptee.

Thank you in advance for any and all assistance  :)

This could be a possible record 1901 census address Kirkfield Bank Lesmahagow
Mary Ann Hastie age 49 born Carlow Ireland
Helen Clarke  ( Hastie ) age 24 born Glasgow
Emma Clarke age 3 born Lesmahagow
Annette Clarke age 11 months born Lesmahagow

No sign of the father or Josephine but there is a Josephine Clarke age 8 as inmate at Camlachie on the 1901 census along with a Caroline Clarke age 7 ?

If you get a copy of the birth certificate as anne-p has posted it will confirm the parents names

Looks like the same family ev ...
There is a birth Scotlands People for Helen Maria Agnes Hastie 1877 Bridgeton Lanarkshire
Death for Helen Maria A Hastie other surname Clarke ..1947 Townhead Glasgow age 70

This could also be a possible record for Emma Clarke age 4 with a group of other children going to Canada arrival date 27 February 1904 ship Bavarian
