Scottish Records - Jessica Malcolm
« on: Thursday 29 November 18 15:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I'm trying to find more details on my biological maternal great-grandmother but am finding Scottish records harder to come by on the usual sites like Ancestry.

Her name is Jessica Wilson, was born around 1882 in Glasgow (I think).  She married a Joseph Malcom in 1903 in Hutchesontown.  Unfortunately can't find any records of her death or of her two sons, William & James (though have got records of her daughter, my biological grandmother, Jessica) or any other records.

Any help or pointers as to where to look would be much appreciated.

Oli

Most people will recommend Scotland's People which is a pay per view site [via a credit bundle] after registration. It is the ONLY site with Scottish census original images - rather than ancestry's (sometimes dire) transcriptions - & parish and civil registration records & certificates for download within certain time restrictions.

Do you have her daughter on any censuses? Where did the daughter live?

For anyone to help you they would obviously have to use their own credits.....but can point you in the right direction. The index results on SP are free.

This is the marriage record from the free index
MALCOLM JOSEPH  WILSON JESSIE
1903 644/11 324 Hutchesontown

You can download the image for 6 credits and will get the names of the parents of both parties. Scottish certificates are far more informative than English/Welsh ones.

PS Note you have the spelling of Malcolm slightly wrong....

HI Oli

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

Just a note to keep in mind. In Scotland, Jessie was normally a name variant of Janet not Jessica. As a variant, you may find some registrations under either variant when making searches for documents.

As Josey has mentioned, Scotlands People's is the ONLY place to search for the original Scottish BMDs. Just from general searches, there is for example a death for a James Wilson Malcolm, aged 69 in 1977 in Glasgow. Mother's maiden name given as Wilson.

There are cut off dates to view original images on line (births 100yrs /marriages 75yrs/ deaths 50yrs) so this death cert would need to be ordered to confirm details.

A Jessie Malcolm, other surname Wilson, aged 73 died in 1956 in the Pollok area of Glasgow. This year is within the time frames to view cert online.

James' birth from SP free index
MALCOLM      JAMES WILSON  M   1908   644/16 155   Govanhill

ADDED: And by searches by each name of the free index, restricted to Govanhill, you can find Joseph 29, Jessie 28 & James 3 & William 5 all with the same reference in the 1911 census which again can be downloaded for 6 credits. However, the BMD certificates Monica & I are finding will provide more information about Jessie' own family history.

Thanks for all the info so far.

Jessica/Jessie Wilson's parents (from what I've been given from a half cousin) were James Wilson & Jessie Morland but don't have any further records on them.  Apparently both had died by the time Jessica/Jessie married in 1903.

From what I've got of James Malcolm (correct, had spelt his surname wrong earlier), he was born in 1881 & died in 1939.

Of what I know of her daughter, also called Jessica/Jessie is that she was born 22nd November 1921 in Glasgow & died in London 9 April 1969.  She was married to a Herbert Colquhoun. At some point, the family had moved from Glasgow to Cambridge & then onto London.
