William b 1838 Jedburgh
James b 1841 Jedburgh who then married Mary Robison 1861 Jedburgh
George b 1842 Jedburgh

George then married Isabella Wood in 1856 Jedburgh and they had 3 children

I have found them on the 1851 and 1861 census, but I cannot find them in 1871.
George I believe dies in 1878 Jedburgh.
George's occupation is given in one form or another as being a Court Sheriff / Messenger at arms.

If anyone can help fill in the missing pieces, 1871 census, marriage to Isabella Scott and when Isabella Scott dies I would be most grateful.

Thank you in advance

Fife / Wilson Family 1851 / 1861 Census Dunfermline
« on: Sunday 19 November 17 15:16 GMT (UK)  »
Good Afternoon Everyone

1851 census
1 Grieve Street Dunfermline
John Wilson age 44  Journeyman Baker b. Dunfermline Fife
(Parents Robert Wilson and Jean Gibb)
Catherine Wilson age 40 Wife b. Dumfries Dumfries-shire
(Parents James Hepburn and Margaret Douglas)
Martha Wilson age 18  b. Dumfries Dumfries-shire
Robert Wilson age 16 Hand Loom Weaver -  born 1835 Dumfries Dumfries-shire
Jean Wilson age 14  b. Dumfries Dumfries-shire
John Wilson age 12 b. Dunfermline Fife
Brown Wilson age 6  - born 1845 Dunfermline Fife(F'name as enum'ed cannot find IGI)
William Wilson age 4 b. Dunfermline Fife
James Wilson age 3 b. Dunfermline Fife

1861 Census
John Wilson died 1857
Catherine died 1851
Martha I believe has married a Christopher Donald
Robert who should be aged 26 I cannot find
Jean who should be aged 24 I cannot find
John who should be aged 22 I cannot find
Brown I think has now become Robert Brown Wilson and is aged 17 and listed as a servant in the relation field and occupation Baker apprentice living in Guild Hall Street Dunfermline and I believe goes on to marry Christina Craig in 1874
William who should be aged 14 I cannot find
James who should be 13 I cannot find, I do pick him up again in 1871 as a boarder aged 22 living in Grieve Street, he goes on to marry Bridget Hoggan. ( In a previous post everyone helped sort this family out for me).  I can only find a birth for the year 1840, which does not tie in with his death certificate in 1940 which gives his age as 97, but all the other details fit.

Any help would be most gratefully received on the where the missing children are and especially sorting out Robert Brown Wilson b 1835 and Brown Wilson b 1845, if they are the same people why would they be on the same census with different names and dates of birth.

« on: Thursday 16 November 17 12:29 GMT (UK)  »
Good Morning

I'm not sure where I should be posting for help on this one.

I am looking for the death of a George Chalmers who was born Bathgate, and on a family headstone it gives details of his death -

George Chalmers - Petrolea Marahu March 1893 Brazil - Aged 28 years.

Why was he there, was he working ?

Any help or information would be most gratefully received.

Many Thanks

Lincolnshire / John Taylor & Mildred
« on: Friday 10 November 17 19:56 GMT (UK)  »
Good Evening

I am looking for a marriage for John Taylor born 1796 Colsterworth Louth to a female called Mildred.

In the 1851 Census John is a carpenter aged 55, and Mildred is aged 49 Edward St Louth. They had 1 daughter Caroline that I know was baptised 1834 Louth and there are possibly 3 other children Frances, William and John.

I thought I had found them in the 1841 Census aged 45 and 39 Gospel Gate Louth ( cant for the life of me find it now ) I was trying to double check that Mildred was listed as Mildred. The reason for checking was I was thinking Caroline had married a William Cole 1855 Louth, all was progressing lovely till 1871 Census a mother is listed and called Mary ???.

Which then brings me to not being able to find either John or Mildred in 1861 Census.

Any ideas ......please

Many Thanks
