RBT Wilson born 1935 - looking for parents
« on: Wednesday 29 November 17 00:30 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find the parents of RBT Wilson, born in or around Edinburgh on 12th February 1935.  I am trying to gather information on his parents, Alexander Logan Wilson, and Marion Wilson. I can find nothing at all on them, so, any information would be most appreciated.

Hi

Thank you for your PM,  I will reply on here so that others can see what is being discussed.

The birth registration index is available at https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp
This is where I clarified that Alexander Logan Wilson's mothers maiden name was Logan.  I previously found the record on freebmd  https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

The army records are available on both Ancestry and FindMyPast.

The probate index for 1950 has Alexander Logan Wilson of 32 Station Road, West Wickham, Kent who died 2 Mar 1950 - Probate to Clare Marion Warden Wilson (widow)
https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills    Freebmd has his age at death as 54.

Free search on 1939 register has Alexander L born 1895, Clara M W Wilson bn 1897 and one closed record -Beckenham MB

Frank could you please post your replies on this post and not by PM so others can see what you are saying.  ;)

Your last PM states I have the wrong person.  Does the person researching this man have his birth certificate if so could they give full details regarding the parents.

Re: RBT Wilson. Looking to find his parents, and seems Alexander Logan Wilson may have used the name Alexander Logan, as he was an army deserter, according to family memory. He was born in 1891 in Glasgow, and was known to have lived at 101 Shettleston Road. Any help would be most appreciated

To progress with this you really need the details from R B T W's birth certificate so that you have his mothers full names   ;)

Scotlands people does not have an Alexander Logan Wilson that 'fits' on their online BMD indexes

Will try to find these details. Alexander Logan may have been his original name, apparently changed it to Wilson when he deserted from the army. Can find a few "fits", but nothing definite so far. I am trying to get access to the birth certificate just now. All very odd

Are the people in your opening post (born 1935) still alive?
