Looking to find Wilhelmina Nellie Dickson after 31st Dec. 1909. She was a witness at my grandmothers wedding.She signed her name Allan on this document.She was the illegitimate daughter of Grace Dickson who later married James Allan.She was not with  them in 1911.
1901 census Pierhead Kelso age 10 named Williamina N Dickson.
1891 census Kiln Wynd Kelso age 0 named Wilhelmina Nellie Dickson.
Thanking you,
Norma.

I found this record on Findmypast but do not have a world subscription only a UK one.
Can you tell me anything about Frederick? His parents names or his occupation.I have a world subscription on Ancestry but can't view it there either.
Thank you,
Norma.

Possibly Nellie DICKSON in the 1911 Irish census.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Antrim/Windsor/Dunluce_Avenue/153406/

Her place of birth is transcribed as "Kelas", but the image shows "Kelso".

Thank you so much  for your help. Finding her in 1911 born in Kelso Scotland proves she is the correct woman. One has to wonder how she ended up in Ireland.  I was hoping to find out if she had twins. They run in the family.
Thanking you,
Norma.

Have you noticed the witnesses on the marriage and the people on the 1911 Census ?
Are they the same people ? Bates/Bater.
