Lanarkshire / Help with William James Carson and Catherine O'Connell -married 1892
« on: Friday 25 January 19 11:31 GMT (UK)  »
I've hit a bit of a brick wall with William James Carson, who was born in Ballymoney, Antrim, NI in 1867 and settled in Glasgow. I have his birth certificate and death certificate, both of which state his mother is Catherine Long and his father John Carson. His daughter Margaret Mary Carson's birth certificate has he and his wife Catherine O'Connell as marrying 2 June 1892 in Glasgow. I have found a certificate for a William Carson and a Katie O'Connell marrying on that exact date in Blackfriars, Glasgow. But the spanner is thrown in to the works when I read his mother as being 'Jannet Scott- deceased'.

I do have William's mother Catherine Long's death cert and can see she passed away in Glasgow in 1873. His father John would have been around 35 years old then, so I have searched to see if he married again, but have drawn a blank.

Have I found the wrong marriage certificate for William James and Catherine O'Connell? Or did he perhaps marry again?

If you have any clues or pointers, it would be great as it may help me break down this brick wall.

Thanks for your help!

I've hit a bit of a brick wall with my great great grandmother Rose May Jones. She married my great grandfather Herbert Charles Ducker in 1905 in Aylesham, Norfolk. She was noted as coming from London and her father was noted as:

William Jones (deceased)

She was born in 18 SEP 1884 Marylebone, London and I traced her birth certificate

On this it reads that her mother was Anne Elizabeth Jones, barmaid of St Pancras, residing at 32 Burton Crescent, St Pancras. A little research shows this as the address of the pub, the Carpenters Arms. No father's details are noted at all.

I have searched fruitlessly for evidence of Anne's marriage to a William or some record of William and Anne linked to Rose May (census etc), but can't seem to come up with anything.

Can anyone help?
