missing death record for Helen Banks, Canisbay
« on: Sunday 23 April 17 10:46 BST (UK) »
Searching for a Scottish death record for Helen Banks born abt 1791 (nee Mowat) from Canisbay, Caithness.  She married a William Banks in 1807, and is not on the 1861 census, so may have died between 1851-1861. They lived in the Hill Head Canisbay area.

Many thanks for this, I bought the death cert for William banks for August 1868 a few weks ago, but it says his wife was called Jane Bain and not Helen Mowat. He could have remarried of course after 1851, but I cannot find a marriage for a Wlm Banks and Jane Bain after this date. I have also searched and searched for a death record in the old parish records for Helen/Ellen Banks/Mowat for 1851, but nothing comes up - very frustrating!
