Hauptman
« on: Friday 12 January 18 23:51 GMT (UK) »
Looking for information about Franz Hauptman b. 1818 in Bohemia.  emigrated to Scotland , set up a glass factory with his brother Ignaz Hauptman in Edinburgh. Married Elizabeth Stevens in 1884 in Edinburgh. Had numerous children, one being Elizabeth Hauptman b.1866 in Bohemia. Elizabeth married Lewis McBeth Morrison in 1890 in Alloa, Clackmannan. Their son, John Morrison b.1890 was my father. I have never been able to find the death of Franz Hauptman , not in Scotland, England or Bohemia - have an idea he may have died around 1893, but not certain.
I was wondering if anyone on this site would have any knowledge that could help me.
Thank you.
Bev

Thank  you so much for the information - however, I already have all of that - it is his death I would like to find and maybe some relatives.

Have you managed to find any information about the glass factory, trade directories or local newspapers to give any background information that might give a clue?

And a warm welcome to Rootschat from me.

Could be worth posting on this thread from 2007:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=236473.0

It doesn't answer your question, but the originator, Irene B, was last online less than a week ago and she might have more info.

All the best
Philip

ADDED - when is the last definite sighting you have of Franz (census, youngest child's birth etc).  This would narrow the search.

There is a will & testament entry for his brother in 1887. There may be mention there of brother if they were partners still?

Ignaz Hauptman - 25/6/1887

Glass Manufacturer, Merchant, and Engraver, Edinburgh, residing at 31 Cambridge Avenue, Pilrig there, d. 17/03/1887 at Edinburgh, testate

What is the last census in Scotland where you can find Franz?

Sure you have this just noting memorable address for 1881 for Franz and his family: Lover's Lane, Cottage in the Garden, St Andrew area of Edinburgh. He showed as a gardener at the time of this census. Maybe he and Ignaz no longer working together?

You have the 1890 marriage entry of your direct line daughter Elizabeth to Lewis McBeth? What did this day about her father? Or the 1891 marriage of her brother Francis to Margaret Sutherland also in Alloa?

Have you checked the original image of the 1891 census with Franz's wife Elizabeth living with her son Francis in Alloa to see what it showed for her marital status - married or widowed?
