Perthshire / Muir Cottage, Burghmuir
« on: Wednesday 09 March 16 19:36 GMT (UK)  »
Trying to help a friend out on the other side of the world! I know there's not much to go on but... We have a postcard that was sent to a Mr and Mrs David McIntyre in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1907. The sender (Grace - no surname) lived at Muir Cottage, Burghmuir. The family has close links to Perth and I'm guessing it's the Burghmuir to the west of Perth. The only other piece of information to be gleaned from the postcard was that her sister was a Mrs Rollo. Is there any way of finding out who lived at Muir Cottage around 1907?

Angus (Forfarshire) / Captain William Grieve - Arbroath
« on: Saturday 15 November 14 09:04 GMT (UK)  »
Trying to clarify and add to information I have about a Capt. William Grieve from Arbroath and his family. Information so far is he was born 1831. In the 1841 Census he is listed with parents William (also a merchant seaman), mother Jean and siblings Agnes and David. In 1856 he married Margaret Dick in Arbroath. They had four children that I know of... Jane Ann Grieve who married Alex Patterson (plasterer) and emigrated to Boston (I have information about this family); Margaret (may have died aged 19); William (think he died at age 16) and Agnes (M?) Grieve who first married John Edwards (died age 34) and then Caithness Talbert.
Any help regarding Captain Grieve, his parents or siblings Agnes (b1829) and David (b1833) much appreciated. He died in 1901.

Angus (Forfarshire) / Jane Ann GRIEVE - Alexander PATTERSON - Arbroath
« on: Thursday 09 January 14 09:43 GMT (UK)  »
I wondered if anyone would be kind to see if they can find the marriage for Jane Ann Grieve b 1857 Arbroath, to Alexander Patterson and the names of Alexander's parents. She was the daughter of William Grieve, merchant officer and Margaret Dick. There were 4 children of this marriage that I know of - Jane Ann, William, Margaret and Agnes Miller Grieve. I am also interested in any evidence of William Grieve's (Jane Ann's father) life at sea. He was born Oct 12 1831 and died May 5 1901. Thanks for looking!  :)

United States of America / Edwards - Boston - Mass - emigrated from Arbroath
« on: Tuesday 07 January 14 16:06 GMT (UK)  »
A bit of a long shot... I have traced some ancestors to the 1940 US Census and living in Talbot Avenue, Boston, Mass. The father and mother - Harry Edwards and wife Jenney are living there with a daughter Ruth and Harry's sister-in-law Marguerite Croft. Harry is an inspector in wholesale fruit and veg and Ruth seems to work there also. I know from previous Census entries there was a son too - John, but I don't know where he is in the 1940 Census. I just wondered if anyone can find any further evidence of them after this date, e.g. in a city directory, or perhaps a marriage or obituary somewhere. The parents emigrated from the Arbroath area of Scotland, but I think both children were born in the US. Harry also had a brother who emigrated to Boston - George Kinloch Edwards who was a chauffeur. Thanks for looking!  :)

Warwickshire / Ernest Albert Gilbert - Francis Street

Looking to find any further information on Ernest Albert Gilbert, his wife Rose (Stubbs) and son Ernest Albert who in the 1911 Census were living at 60 Francis/Frances Street in the Duddeston area of Birmingham. They were living with Rose's sister Alice Ellen who married George Hubbard.

Argyllshire / Oban 1900
« on: Saturday 23 June 12 11:46 BST (UK)  »
This is my first posting in the Argyllshire section! Just looking for information about the Oban Hydropathic, which I believe was a sanatorium which was never completed. I have someone saying she recalls an ancestor going there around 1900... the children were packed up for a picnic to the grounds of Hydropathic while another child received treatment. Perhaps this is not quite right and the child received treatment at home while the other two were packed off. Any background information would be wonderful. If anyone knows of any old Oban Directories for around that time the name to look for is Brock. Here's hoping...

Midlothian / Brock - Leith - 1911 Census
« on: Wednesday 13 June 12 14:21 BST (UK)  »
This is my first posting here for a while. I've been searching the family of William Brock (b1861 Caithness) and Isabella Mungall. I last have them in the 1901 Census at 7 Forth Road Leith, but cannot for the life of me find them in the 1911 Census, despite the fact I know he was killed 1918 when his ship, the Malvina, was sunk off the coast off Flamborough Head after being torpedoed. Isabella died later the same year. I also know one of his children was married in Leith in 1907, shortly before the 1911 census... so I am baffled as to why I cannot find any of them in 1911. They had a family consisting of Annie, Janet, William, Isabella, Mary and Maggie - most of whom emigrated to New Zealand after their parents died.

I am also trying to find William senior's brother Simon Thomson Brock in the 1911 Census. The last mention I have of him was a possible Simon Brookes in the 1910 census, living in a what appears to be a church or charity house at88  Candlemaker's Row. He died 1920 at 37 Candlemakers Row.

Any help appreciated. I can supply further info if required.

Sorry I meant to post this in Midlothian...
