Caithness / William ROBERTSON 1888, Stroma, Canisbay
« on: Friday 30 March 18 18:11 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking someone to kindly assist or point me in the right direction - this is my first post on this website.

My ancestor, William Robertson, was born illegitimately to Diana Robertson on Stroma, Canisbay on 1 Feb 1888. His mother's name and occupation (domestic servant) are stated on the birth record which I obtained from Scotland's People. But because William was illegitimate, the father's name is not documented on the birth record. Diana was born on Stroma/Canisbay on 26 Feb 1854 to William and Christina (nee Manson) Robertson.

I believe it is possible to 'Find the Father' of illegitimate children, and in most cases this incurs a fee. Does anyone here know where this information can be found? I'm desperate to find this info, which will hopefully answer a lot of questions my family has had about William Robertson for many, many years.
