This sounds exciting. I found Gregory and a Briget Mealy marriage in Scotland last night married in January 1871 obviously William Michael would have been prior to this as showing 12 on 1871 census. Perhaps Gregory married again. Margaret's father was Edward. I don't have her grandparents details as not researched them yet.

I have just had a look at the Durham connection. It's Hartlepool which isn't that far away from Sunderland. There was one of the census said he was born in Partick. Is that anywhere near Dumbarton?

Thank you everyone I really appreciate all the help you are giving me. All I have for definite is William Michael on marriage cert to Margaret Turkey in 1896, the same year our grandad was born, he was Michael too. William has not been used on any of his sons names, only sort of other link is a son called Gregory, not a very common name. Williams father was shown as Gregory on the marriage cert, no other details unfortunately. It's a mystery if ever there was one.

Hiya, I think this is the Gregory I found last night, his marriage to Bridget Mealy in 1871. Going on this marriage it would be later than the birth of my William Michael. Not that thus means a lot as Gregory could have remarried. But looked at census for 1871 when William would have been around 8/9  yrs and he doesn't appear
I did find a death for a Gregory in South Shields around a similar time, wondered if he could have moved to the north east.

Roisinish, I have been told by my mother in law that he married Margaret Turley, I have marriage cert now which confirms that. I find it strange he dropped William too but there are anomalies on the census re spellings of surname and also his age. In 1901 he is shown as being 50 yet he died in 1912 at age of 48??

Thank you all for your continued help. Well marriage cert arrived. Father is shown as Gregory Connelly. Unfortunately I have searched high and low for Gregory in Scotland's census but haven't found anything yet. So I feel like I am back to square one. I have tried variations of possibly using William Gregory or Michael Gregory, still nothing.  :-[ very frustrating. Any suggestions would be really appreciated x
Gregory was also a name of one if his sons but not his eldest. Eldest son was Michael born 1896.
