Lanarkshire / Re: Mary Crossan Help
« on: Wednesday 18 May 22 20:06 BST (UK)  »
Yes, that's the correct marriage.  Yes there was a Mary born in Lennoxtown but she died.  My ancestors were in Bathgate in 1861, she  married Neil Toy in 1866 and it was in Bathgate.  Mary died in Muiravonside  in abt 1927.  As for the spellings Crassin, Crosfan, Crossin or Crossan.  So you see the difficulty in tracking them down.

Lanarkshire / Mary Crossan Help

I wonder if anyone can help.  Mary Crossan is my ggrandmother born abt 1845-47 depending on what site you use.  Her parents were James and Rose Crossan married in 1834 in Glasgow.  They moved about a lot from Glasgow to Edinburgh to Old Monkland then finally Bathgate.  They had many children who were baptised in these areas.   Mary is the only one I can't find and to make matters worse their name is mis-spelt in various forms.  All the censuses put Mary's birth in Old Monkland.  I've checked all areas surrounding Coatbridge/ Old Monkland and came up with nothing.  It would be helpful if any one can point me in the right direction as to find her.   Thanks

On my ggrandfather's marriage certificate that phrase is mentioned.  Through digging very deeply I found out that his mother was not married to the man mentioned.  He didn't know that he was illegitimate up until his death.  This phrase was also mentioned on his death certificate.  Maybe trying to give the veneer of being born legitimate.

Thanks for that.  Can't access that part of Ancestry, but can go through Scotlands People and work from there.

Renfrewshire / Margaret Toy

Hi all I hope you can help me with my inquiry.  I'm looking for the follwing information, my g-g aunt Margaret Toy was born in 1878 Airdrie, Lanarkshire.  I've discovered bits and pieces suggests that she married and died some where in Renfrewshire.  I would like to know who she married and when she died ?  I vaguely remember seeing some information that she worked on a farm in the county.



Daniel was born in Airdrie, Lanarkshire.  He tried to join the infantry but was rejected as being not up to standard.  So joined RASC/ Labour Corps.  He was my great grandmother's older brother.  We will always remember him.  He was laid to rest in Lembert Road Cemetery Thessilonika, Greece.
