Hawick new burial ground
« on: Friday 09 October 15 16:04 BST (UK) »
Hi my 2x great aunt:

Margaret Casdon Hodge b. 7/4/1857 Musselburgh  died aged 3 22/9/1860 Hawick of Scarlatina & apparently is buried in the new burial ground Hawick.  I have parental details: James Hodge 1821/2 Stirling & Elizabeth Brown 1820 Alloa  but can't find records until they marry 1846 Alloa.

Which cemetery is this please - I know there are 3?? & does anyone have access to the MI's?

I would like confirmation of the 'Casdon' bit - can't find out where this came from yet.
James was a brewer who worked in Cupar breweries / Hawick brewery & then moved to Castle Eden brewery in Co. Durham.

Ta,
Diddy

Could mean the Wellogate cemetery opened around 1850, but still could mean Wilton cemetery also the current one dates from about 1840's

depends were they lived in Hawick/Wilton

MI records are very sketchy and only available for research at the Hawick Hub & BFHS

the Casdon could be a Maiden Surname within the family, very common practice.

1861c they lived at Brewery cottages, Hawick.

Yes think Casdon probably from surname but as cant' find baps......

I am a member of BFHS but I live in the Midlands. Maybe up in Northumberland in Nov/Dec.
