William Hay
« on: Friday 07 December 18 16:38 GMT (UK) »
I'm struggling to find the death record of the above gentleman, who was born in Maryhill in 1868 to Alexander Hay and Grace B Gilchrist.  I know that he was living in Glasgow until at least the turn of the century, but I cannot find a record of his marriage.  He did not have any other Christain names.

Any help would be appreciated.

You presumably have him on the 1901 census in Dumbartonshire?  His wife was Margaret nee Young incorrectly shown as 50 but probably should be 30 and they have an 8 day old son

If you have been restricting a search to Lanarkshire you perhaps need to look in Dumbarton

HAY   ALEXANDER   GILCHRIST    GRACE BURN   1867   Kirkintilloch

HAY   ALEXANDER   64   1905   Maryhill death

HAY   GRACE BURN   85   1930   Maryhill death

HAY   WILLIAM   YOUNG   MARGARET   1900   Blythswood marriage

The following valuation roll may be him but you would need to compare address 1ith 1911 census. He was not on the valuation rolls in New Kilpatrick in 1915 - 1930

HAY   WILLIAM Proprietor Occupier HOUSE DONBANK ERSKINE PARK   NEW KILPATRICK   1905

By 1911 they have 3 children and still live in New Kilpatrick but not with Margaret’s mother.

The only death in the county was 1924 Kirkintilloch and there are William Hay’s there from 1915 – 1930. but I do not think it is him because no death for Margaret in the County but 65 elsewhere from 1911, slightly less for William.

Thanks both CaroleW and ColC.  This is certainly the same chap, although it is a puzzle where he eventually lived and died.  I have checked the 1924 William Hay, but it is not him. He did live down in England when he was in his 20's, so he may have moved south.  Appreciate all your help though.  Did you happen to see his profession?

Maybe four or five  ;D

Just a thought - checking one of the childrens marriage certs would show whether he was still alive and help narrow any search for his death.  What was he famous for?
