JOHN DICKSON
« on: Sunday 15 January 17 11:02 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Just having a bit of a problem verifying, with certainty, my paternal Great Great Grandfather's parents names. He was JOHN DICKSON - some trees have given him a second christian name of 'SLEIGH' - who was born on the 20/9/1818 in Coldingham, Berwickshire. I have his life sorted as there is a lot of info about him but If anyone could help me with his parent's names I would be grateful. An 'Elizabeth Liddle' is named on one person's tree if that is of any help but not sure where that's come from. Thank you.

Hi Crwys,

The first question for me when did he marry  and is his father mentioned on the marriage record?

Is he the one in Scotland in Eyemouth, Berwickshire in 1871, with two sisters and a brother?

Cheers
AMBLY

hi

I believe it may have come from an index search on Scotlandspeople.

the index shows 3 John Dicksons with that date of birth, if your sure of the place then the parents show as GEORGE DICKSON/ELIZABETH LIDDLE. You can view the document for the small cost of 6 credits.

If your sure of the date but not of the location the other parental options are
WILLIAM DICKSON/ISABELLA MORTON
and
JAMES DICKSON/KATHRINE MCINTOSH

Hope this helps

Thanks for your response. John Dickson was married in Lurgan, Ireland around 1839/40 but I don't have a certificate. Not sure if I'm able to get one in Ireland. Will give it a try.

Thank you Laura. I'll have a look at 'Scotlandspeople'. Looks like a pretty good chance of being the folk I'm searching for.

Hi Crwys

These look like his parents deaths showing on Scotlandspeople. Viewing the certificates should give you their parents details.

DICKSON
GEORGE
70
1857
732/ 35
Coldingham

DICKSON
ELIZABETH
72
1859
732/ 6
Coldingham

Will keep digging  ;)

me again

Have you seen this post?

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=242806.0

Thought it might be of interest since your Elizabeth Liddle gives Ayton as her place of birth on the 1851 Census. The original poster hasn't been active on here for a while but may still get notifications of Personal messages to their email.
