Marriage certificate help -Please
« on: Thursday 03 January 19 12:13 GMT (UK) »
Happy New Year!

I 'm hoping someone could help. I am researching my 3x Great Grandmother Esther McLean. Some one on this forum helped me find this marriage certificate. I know the information about Esther already but no nothing of her Husband.

Please could someone help by transcribing his parents names, maiden name and professio n.

Many thanks in advance

Any chance of a better quality image? It distorts badly when I enlarge it.

I was just about to ask the same.  :)

When zooming in it just pixelates and blurs.

Hi both! I’m struggling! It keeps telling me the attachment is too large!

Try cropping the certificate to just show the parts you need deciphering

I would agree with Ruskie and mother's name Julia.

This is the marriage I think:

HOOLAHAN Timothy - MCLEAN Esther 1863 691/ 5 Lasswade

I can’t see a birth for a Timothy, even using ‘fuzzy’ for surname.

Could he have been born in Ireland?

I can’t see any of the mentioned Hoolahan’s (or variations of) before or after marriage, on the Scots censuses.  :-\
