Sorry PaulineJ
Perhaps I have posted to the incorrect board?? Burntisland is in Fife, Scotland.

Unfortunately Scotlands People is a pay site so, unless your sister can check on them in Edinburgh (I read your Canadian thread!), you might have to use up some credits.

I used one credit and found that there is only one Catherine/Jessie combination in Burntisland - Catherine (aged 9)  has middle initial A.


PS - I think the parents may be James and Jessie C. I'll investigate further.

The marriage has James's parents as James Tait, merchant seaman (deceased) and Catherine Ann M.S. Catton

This is James with his step father and his mother in 1891:

6 Somerville Street, Burntisland
Alexander Bannatyne, 28 (?), steam ship fireman
Katy Ana, 46, b. Ireland
James Tait, 18, Boilermaker's labourer, b. Burntisland

Having problems at the moment with Jessie. The marriage has her parents as William Young (deceased) Farm Grieve and Elizabeth M.S Lathanie (?)*. Born circa 1880

* wonder if it's really a badly spelled Letheney. There are quite a few of those!
