Roxburghshire / George Robertson Jedburgh 1796 - 1878
« on: Friday 02 March 18 16:04 GMT (UK)  »
Good Afternoon Everyone

George Robertson b 1796 Hawick married Isabella Scott and had 5 children
William b 1838 Jedburgh
James b 1841 Jedburgh who then married Mary Robison 1861 Jedburgh
George b 1842 Jedburgh
Margaret b 1845 Jedburgh who I believe married Peter Geggie
Jessie b 1847 Jedburgh who I believe married William Wood

George then married Isabella Wood in 1856 Jedburgh and they had 3 children
Robert b 1858 Jedburgh
Mary b 1859 Jedburgh
John b 1861 Jedburgh

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

This is from Mary Ann's death entry, but I still can't make the fathers name out.

Hello CA

The marriage was between John Chalmers and Mary Ann Ferguson 1857 Glasgow.
Mary Ann was born about 1837 in Ireland according to the 1861 Census, and aged 19 years on the marriage entry.

Good Morning

Quick update with a question.

I ordered the death certificate for a Harry Beaumont 2001, and there is not a lot of information on it the person registering the death  Qualification is given as  "Causing the body to be cremated".
It does give a date of birth as 22/02/1930 and gives his place of birth as Batley Yorkshire
I have searched for other HB born in the Yorkshire and this is the only one. The GRO ref (which was kindly given to me earlier in the post) Dewsbury 9b 750 1930 j/f/m seems to match. Then a quick check on the 1939 Register gives a preview of Harry Beaumont born 1930 living Batley Yorkshire, with a Joseph D Beaumont ( Harry's father's name from marriage certificate) and one other person in household.
My question is in 1930 would Batley be recorded in the GRO as Dewsbury ?
