FamilySearch has lots of births/baptisms in Scotland for about that time of a John Dawson with father John Dawson, and there were probably more born then whose baptism went unrecorded. So sadly, tracking down the birth and parents of your John Dawson looks like something of a brick wall.
AYRSHIRE - Strachan, McCrae, Haddow, Haggerty, Neilson, Alexander
ABERDEENSHIRE (Cruden and Longside) - Fraser, Hay, Logan, Hutcheon or Hutchison, Sangster
YORKSHIRE (Worsbrough) - Green, Oxley, Firth, Cox, Rock
YORKSHIRE (Royston and Carlton) - Senior, Simpson, Roydhouse, Hattersley

Hi David,

You give John's year of death as 1873. What age is he on his death cert?
There is a John Dawson died Tadcaster Sept 1878 aged 59.  http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/districts.pl?r=61710575&d=bmd_138782016
Looby :)

That's my man 5th Sept 1878 (think I put 73 sorry!) of apoplexy aged 59 giving a birth year of 1819 yet his marriage certificate gives an age of 39 with a birth year of 1816.

He's not that consistent with his birth year it varies between 1816 and 1821 most of which, I'm sure is down to rounding ages up!

I've spent about 8 years looking for him on and off using Ancestry, Scotlands People and IGI but to no avail yet.

They were quite an interesting couple, fined for not letting soldiers billet in their pub and her father was transported for stealing ducks!

Hi David

I just wondered if you ever tracked down the parents of John Dawson in Scotland. I have recently started my family tree and John Dawson is part of it. I searched Dawson family history in Tadcaster in Google and your old post from years ago appeared. We are definitely talking about the same person so I would be interested to know if you were successful.

Regards
Mark Dawson
