Mary Lavery Law : born abt 1891
« on: Wednesday 28 March 18 15:30 BST (UK) »
Hi there

I'm a bit stumped trying to find where and when Mary was born and what happened to her after she married in 1924 ... hence this vague post  ::)

Captain John Douglas Taylor (her husband) was born 28 Oct 1894 in Stanley House, South Avenue, Govan, Lanarkshire, and died 21 Jul 1950 at sea.  He married Mary on 14 May 1924 in St Mary's Roman Catholic Chapel, Pollockshields, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, daughter of James Law and Mary Lavery.  Her age is given as 33 - so was born abt. 1891.

The 1924 Register of Marriage shows their marriage was conducted after Publication according to the Forms of the Roman Catholic Church by Fr. John F. Stuart, R.C. Clergyman, St Mary's Church, Pollockshields.  Witnesses were Cuthbert McKirdy, 27 Kirkwood Street, Rutherglen and Martha Law, Clerwood, Uddingston. Mary's occupation, in May 1924, was Mercantile Clerk and her address given as 9 Walton Street, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.  Both parents are shown as Deceased.

I'm in the hands of the RootsChatters yet again!

On the marriage certificate did it name her mother as Mary Law m.s. Lavery? If not then she would have been unmarried. When Mary was born she may have been registered under her mother's surname or father's.

Hi there

Thanks for your response  :)

The Register of Marriage shows:
Father - James Law, Riveter (deceased) : Mother - Mary Law M.S. Lavery (deceased)

I've had a look under both Law and Lavery, the former throwing up more results than I care to meddle with online at ScotlandsPeople  :o   It'll be easier and more cost-effective to have a look next time I go to Edinburgh.  I even tried under Low - just on the off-chance.

Oddly enough, I can't find a 1901 Census north or south of the Border for the family either  ???

Hi Forfarian

Good to have you on-board (again) with one of my searches  ;)

Yes, umpteen pages of online Census trawled with all sorts of options but still getting nowhere with this  >:(

Hi Monica

Thanks for that ... and good to have you on-board as well!  I wasn't aware as I've had no communications from them about a closure.

Given  Martha Law was a witness, have you considered this as an outside possible:

1910
1901
Glaisnock Street, Old Cumnock, Ayrshire

William Smith, 41, coalminer, b. Dalry
......
and 8 boarders including: 
Mary Law,11, scholar, b. Dumbarton
Martha Law, 10, scholar, b. Ireland
Maggie Law, 8, scholar, b. England
Catherine Law,5, scholar, b. Dumbarton

Also an 'outside possible maybe'  in 1891

Overburn Terrace, Dumbarton

James Law, 31,Engine Shop Labourer, B. Ireland
Mary Ann, 27, b. Ireland
Mary J, 6**
James, 5
Marie, 3
Daniel, 1

All children b. Dumbarton

These from transcriptions so would need to check ages.

Gadget

** added --- this Mary was a domestic servant in Cardross on the 1901 so not the same as the 1901 one in Ayrshire.

Marie, aged 3 is still with parents in 1901 - now down as Mary.
