Have obtained death records for William McVitie and his wife and these were recorded at St Cuthbert's Church in Edinburgh. However their grave is not recorded in the Churchyard Records and I did not find it during a physical check' If anyone has the information would welcome it and also for information on the burial place of their son the founder of McVities . Died in Edinburgh in 1883

William Mcvitie who died in 1842 was the father of Robert McVitie the founder of the firm -born in Dumfries in 1809-died in Edinburgh 1883. Robert went to Edinburgh in 1830 with his father and mother and started the frim at 129 Rose Street. Hope this helps

I am trying to obtain information on William Green one time living in Dumfries at Nunholm but died in 1811 following an accident in Carriacou. I have reason to believe that money was used from his families estate to buy property in Rose Street Edinburgh used by mcVities biscuits

I am doing research into the McVitie family-founders of McVities biscuits. I am having difficulty in finding the date of death of William McVitie and his wife Jean McVitie ( nee Green) They appear on the 1841 census living in Edinburgh but not in the 1851 census. One report suggests that they returned to Dumfries their home town but I have found no records there. I have looked on roots for Dumfriesshire but have not had  any replies and Ancestry provided some information but the deaths given related to other McVities

have found out a lot of information thanks to help so far.Am having difficulty in finding the date of death of William McVitie . Have established that he was born in 1772 and married Jean Green. He was on the 1841 Census as living in Edinburgh but entry in National Dictionary of Biography stated that he and his wife returned to Dumfries. He does not appear on the Census for 1851 in Edinburgh or Dumfries and the trail has gone cold.

many thanks for the replies to date. I am interested in the Dumfries connection mainly but information on the families is also welcome
