Isle of Man / Kitto
« on: Sunday 01 September 13 20:30 BST (UK)  »
While searching through a box of pictures in an second hand shop I came across several photos with name of Kitto on the back. There is one photo of Arthur E Kitto and W Frank Kitto 1933, another 2 not named but looks to be an older version of one of these gentlemen, 1 of a man in a court wig - a lawyer perhaps? , 1 of a man in a Navy uniform, and 4 of children. There is the names Joyce and Sheila on the back of one.
The photographer was W H Warburton Douglas Isle of Man.

I am curious as to how they came to be in a shop on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

If anyone would like to see these photos please feel free to pm me

Lancashire / Hourston family

I'm trying to find out information about Robert Hourston and his family. He was married to Margaret Duggan and they had 7 children. I have them in the 1911 census living in  Brasenose Road Kirby. Robert died in 1929, Margaret in 1954.
Their children were:
Eileen Isabella, James, Robert, Margret Mary, Edward J, Beatrice A and Kathleen.
Robert was from Orkney origianally and Margaret from Ireland.

I enjoyed the programme but more for the location as this is where I grew up. :)

My connection is through their daughter Ann. She married John Kemp from Kirkwall. One of their son's ,George Fodden Kemp, married a 1st cousin twice removed, who, when she died at a young age he then married her sister. They emigrated to Canada

Thanks akc for letting me know that William and Barbara were deceased - the prospect of Barbara being alive in 1864 really confused things! ::)

Could you please tell me the ages of William Bruce and Isabella, and William Jr and his wife Jane Taylor, just for completeness? As I mentioned previously I hadn't managed to find a DOB for Isabella, but thought it would be about 1829 based on 1841 census.

As I revisit the records I have so far on William Symison, I noticed that on one of the documents I have, that of the marriage registration of 1863 Barbara Symison to John McKinlay, her parents were described as William Symison, Tailor and Margaret Taylor - so the 1851 census reference to a Fisherman seems, well .. em ...fishy ...

Regards, M.
I have Barbara Symison, daughter of William Symison and Margaret in my tree.
