George Fordyce Born abt. 1887
« on: Sunday 11 February 18 14:53 GMT (UK) »
Hello.
My name is Alan Gray & I have just discovered that George Fordyce (born abt.1887) Rathven, Banffshire is my Paternal Grandfather.
I am slightly confused in the fact that according to the 1891 & 1901 Census records his mother is called Annie but according to the birth information I have his mother was called Margaret Geddes.
Also there is a marriage between John Fordyce & Ann Geddes at Seafield in 1871.
I also know that George was a Cooper & living in Portessie in 1916 - writ between Alexina Gray & George Forsyth regarding an illegitimate son born in 1912 (my father)
Can anyone possibly help me to clear up the naming of the mother please.

He died Buckie in 1971, aged 84. You'd have to order the certificate.
