Thank you everyone.  I think this man must have led quite a colourful life possibly trying to escape from his responsibilities!  I have found a John B listed in 1939 in Scarborough as a retired hotel manager - DOB 19.3.1870.  He is married to Margaret so either Eveline (Ivy) died or they divorced -assuming it is the same Buchanan Beattie.

He is also listed in the Middlesbrough Daily Gazette in 1909 for bankruptcy.

There are several immigration records for Norman Buchanan Beattie which give addresses in Darlington in 1930s.
John Jeffrey Buchanan too.
Yes Norman appears to have been a mining engineer and spent time at the School of Mines in Camborne in 1936 before going to Accra.  He is listed as living with a Vivian Buchanan Beattie in Piercebridge in 1931. There is a reference to a Vivian Buchanan Beattie in the Cornish Guardian of 1934.  She was fined 1 for aiding and abetting illicit drinking!
John Jeffrey was also a mining engineer in Ghana

I have an Ivy or Eveline Galloway who married John Buchanan Beattie in 1903 a commission agent in Great Ayton.  However I cannot find out what happened to them.  John was at the death of Eveline's father in 1906.    In 1911 Eveline was living in Wood Green.Any guidance would be appreciated please

Thank you.  Yes her parents were Walter and Hannah - Walter born in Leeds and Hannah in  Great Ayton.  I suppose the L could have  been read for an S when details were transcribed.

I am searching for a Henrietta S Galloway born in Leeds in  1882 and last appearing on the 1901 census in Darlington.  Nothing thereafter - can anyone offer any guidance please.  Thank you

Thank you for clarifying.  I think I have found why the husband is missing.  He appears in a list of debtors as a proprietor running a hotel in Brighton but I need to verify this.  Son John died in 1995 at age 91.  Seems to be quite a colourful side of the family!

Many thanks for all your help in this.  However Eveline Galloway cannot be the Ivy I am seeking.  John Buchnan was only born in 1904 so could not have married in 1903.

I have an Ivy Galloway born in 1885 to a Walter and Hannah Galloway in Leeds, Yorkshire but can find no reference to her after the 1891 census.  Can anyone offer any guidance please
