Can anybody assist me with a look up in Scotland?

I have a John Mitchell (b. abt 1843 in Forfarshire, Scotland – before 1901)
married (no date) to Jessie ??? (b. abt 1844 in Montrose, Scotland).
She is shown as a Sailor's Wife in 1881 living at 11 Gibson Place, Montrose, Scotland.

I have found 4 children (but think there maybe more)
Agnes Mitchell (abt 1869 in Montrose, Scotland)
John Mitchell (abt 1871 in Montrose, Forfarshire)
David Mitchell (abt 1874 in Montrose, Forfarshire)
William Mitchell (abt 1879 in Montrose, Scotland)

They seem to move to West Ham, Essex, as in 1891, John is a Shipwright and they are living at 12 Clarence Road, West Ham. They stay at this address and in 1901, Jessie is now a widow. By 1911 she has moved to 32 Clifton Road, Canning Town, West Ham.

There grandchildren are also resident with them during this time (I cannot find their parents ?):
John Brick (abt 1887 in Dundee, Scotland), Nellie Brick (abt 1893 in Canning Town, Essex) and Jane or Jennie Brick (abt 1898 in Canning Town, Essex) as well as Nephew - James Brick (abt 1881 in Montrose, Scotland).
Any information on ‘Bricks’

Both daughter Agnes and son William are shown as Photographers (c1900s), but I can find nothing else ?

Any assistance welcome

Hi

If you look up any of the childrens births on SP it will give you Jessie's maiden name

You can then use SP to find their marriage which will give you both sets of parents names plus mothers maiden names

Use SP to look for a Brick marriage to a Mitchell or alternatively - lookup grandson John's birth reg to get parents names etc

SP is a pay per view website and you have to buy credits to download copies of the certs etc although the index is free to search

The 1901 shows daughter as Agnes Mitchell and aged 20 but married.  However - if she was born in 1869 she would be 31 and if married, her surname would not be Mitchell.    Could she be the mother of the Brick children

I've just checked the SP index and there is no birth for a John Brick 1885-1890 anywhere in Scotland and no Brick/Mitchell marriage

Births pre 1875 in Scotland are on familysearch - found the first 3 children's births listed:

Agnes Edward Mitchell  b.22/1/1868 Montrose, Angus dau. of John Mitchell and Jessie Carnegie
John Mitchell b.24/8/1870                  ditto                                   ditto
David Mitchell b.5/8/1874                  ditto                                    ditto

There is just one older child I can see:

Jessie Ann b.1/9/1864 Montrose

John Mitchell married Jessie Carnegie 27/10/1863 Montrose, Angus - as Scottish certificates give more information than English ones, if you purchase some credits for ScotandsPeople you can view the actual certificate and it will include parents full names for both of them.

Think folks might have more luck finding the 'Brick' family if you look for them under the surname of Buick/Buik or Buist. I've just looked at the 1891 on FindMyPast and although transcribed as Brick, it reads to me as Buik.

Had a couple of odd credits left to simply do an index search on SP:   The surname is BUIK.

Agnes Edward Mitchell married a James Buik 1888 St. Andrew, Dundee

John Mitchell Buik born 1888 St. Andrew, Dundee.
