Marjory Henderson nee Dewar bc1841
« on: Tuesday 26 December 06 22:01 GMT (UK) »
Hi.
I'm searching for marriage of Marjory Dewar bc1841 Dundee who according to 1861 census was the wife of Robert Henderson b1819-thats some difference in ages! She seems to have 4 children between 1848 and 1858? I can only presume that these were really step children.
It looks as though Robert moved from East Lothian to Arbroath -perhaps for work or maybe he didn't want to go south with his parents.
Any help appreciated.
Rosser, Henderson, Chapman, Clarkson, Harper, Healey, Horth, Page, Bowers, Ritchie, Sheen, Smith and Weymark.

The closest I can see on IGI is this marriage, frustratingly it only shows initials for the bride:

ROBERT HENDERSON  Marriages: Spouse: M. S. DEWAR    
Marriage:  15 JAN 1861  Arbroath, Angus, Scotland

Regards.

2. JAMES ADDISON HENDERSON Birth: 04 AUG 1853 / Christening: 18 SEP 1853 Saint Vigeans, Angus, Scotland
4. JAMES ADDISON HENDERSON Birth: 08 NOV 1857 Saint Vigeans, Angus, Scotland
5. ROBERT ADDISON HENDERSON  Birth: 02 MAY 1851/ Christening: 18 MAY 1851 Arbroath, Angus, Scotland
7. JESSIE CLARKSON HENDERSON  Birth: 01 JAN 1848 Arbroath, Angus, Scotland
8. AGNES MATHER HENDERSON  Birth: 06 FEB 1849 Arbroath, Angus, Scotland

This looks like a possible entry for Robert and Agnes in 1851:

Robert Henderson 31, Marine Maurauce Agent, b. Morham, Haddingtonshire
Agnes Henderson 24, b . Carmylie, Forfarshire
Hellen Nicol    26, house servant, b. Dun, Forfarshire
Joseph Gibson    20, visitor, Clerk Marine Msenauce Office, b. Dundee, Forfarshire

Address: 4 Millgateloan, Arbroath, Angus


Not sure if second born daughter Agnes may have died, but eldest daughter Jessie looks to be at her maternal grandparents in 1851 (same address as above, but indexed separately, not sure what type of accomodation this would be):

Agnes Addison    52, wife, b. Carmylie, Forfarshire
James Addison    57, head, Reetired Buildee Propnetor Of Houses, b. St Vigeans, Forfarshire
Jessie C Henderson 3, granddaughter, b. Arbroath, Forfarshire

Address:  4 Millgateloan, Arbroath, Angus

Regards.

Monica

Occupations as transcribed! In spite of that, Robert's occupation in 1861 (Secretary To A Marine Insurance Association) and birth place match the above entry in 1851.

Hi Monica,
Yes I found that M S Dewar on the IGI-its very frustrating when that happens and when info is submitted by an LDS member with no back up!
Many thanks for the other info.

Hi CR

The marriage entry on IGI is an actual extract. Given it's a post 1855 certficate, you should be able to find it on SP. I haven't often seen the bride's details entered this way.

Regards.

Hi Monica,
After a bit more searching I found Marjory Strachan Dewar b 15/5/1840 C112829,at Dundee-shows her parents as well, suppose there must've been a Strachan in their ancestry.
Many thanks for your help as it pushed me on further.
