George Robertson Jedburgh 1796 - 1878
« on: Friday 02 March 18 16:04 GMT (UK) »
Good Afternoon Everyone

George Robertson b 1796 Hawick married Isabella Scott and had 5 children
William b 1838 Jedburgh
James b 1841 Jedburgh who then married Mary Robison 1861 Jedburgh
George b 1842 Jedburgh
Margaret b 1845 Jedburgh who I believe married Peter Geggie
Jessie b 1847 Jedburgh who I believe married William Wood

George then married Isabella Wood in 1856 Jedburgh and they had 3 children
Robert b 1858 Jedburgh
Mary b 1859 Jedburgh
John b 1861 Jedburgh

I have found them on the 1851 and 1861 census, but I cannot find them in 1871.
George I believe dies in 1878 Jedburgh.
George's occupation is given in one form or another as being a Court Sheriff / Messenger at arms.

If anyone can help fill in the missing pieces, 1871 census, marriage to Isabella Scott and when Isabella Scott dies I would be most grateful.

Thank you in advance

Hi ,

There is a marriage George ROBINSON / Isabella Scott 20th April 1833 Eckford Roxburgh
1841 Census
http://maxwellancestry.co.uk/41transcript.aspx?houseid=79205071

It looks like Isabella Scott died 1851 - 1854.

Thank you Ev  ;D

I found the missing Census 1871 - name had been transcribed as Roberton, the young children of Isabella were on it, Robert and Mary, so I followed on through 1881, 1891. Isabella dies somewhere between 1891 and 1901. In 1901 Robert is a shoe maker and has a wife and has moved from the Old Jail. His wife was born same year as his sister Mary, she is called Mary but census states she was born in Edinburgh, they have a daughter Jeanie. Now the thing is I cannot find a death for Mary Roberts sister in Jedburgh, and I cannot find her on the 1901 census either.

Regards
