William Grant McKee, born 1888 in Glasgow
« on: Monday 31 October 16 12:07 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for the ancestors of William G. McKee, born in Glasgow, born 1888, given as about 1889 in the census.

I'm pretty sure I have the right person in the 1901 and 1891 census. His father was James McKee, born about 1861 in Glasgow, his mother was Agnes Elizabeth (Grant) McKee. They were living in Pollockshields in 1901 and in Govan in 1891. Judging from the age of William's older sister Agnes, James and Agnes must have been married in about 1884.

Before that I'm not sure. There are some James McKees in the 1871 census, but I can't be sure which one might be the right one. James was born in Glasgow but I have been told that the family came from Ireland.

There's still a fault in the SP search so don't enter Spouse's surname in the search.

I have found out a bit more. Agnes Elizabeth Grant's parents were William Grant (born 1819 in Bothwell, the son of Alexander) and Agnes Pollock. In the 1861 and 1881 census, William was a Railway engine driver.

Thanks Jonn. Based on that I found that Henry McKee was born in 1835 in Ireland, and Ann/Annie Reynolds was born 1837 in Ireland, the daughter of Esther, who was living with them in 1881.
