« on: Tuesday 29 July 14 13:55 BST (UK) »
 I am looking for information on the ancesters of Alexander McPhie or McPhee Brown who married Mary Jane Freeburn or Freebairn at Glasgow in 1892
 The 1901 Census shows them living at 7 Marquis Street,Bridgeton, Glasgow 
They had a daughter called Jeannie (Jane) born 1896 in Goven who was my grandmother
Hope someone out there can help
Thanks

Hi and welcome have you tried www.scotlandspeople .com for their marriage so you can get the names of their parents ..If you have not used this site it will cost you 7.00 to buy 30 credits where you can search and view records for 6 credits ..
According to the census Alexander Brown was born 1871 Glasgow and Mary born 1872 in Ayrshire did their daughter Jeanie go to Canada in 1922 ?

Ancestry has the record for his birth, on 29th August 1870 in Bridgeton, Glasgow.
Parents John Brown and Janet McPhie.

the 1871 census shows
John Brown b. 1832 in Edinburgh, a house joiner,

and two older children Duncan (8 ) and John (5) both born in Glasgow.

By 1881 Janet McPhie had died because John and the children are with his new wife Mary (Gibson)
