John Aitchison,Glasgow, died 1859 aged 90
« on: Wednesday 24 March 21 11:33 GMT (UK) »
I am researching John Aitchison but limited information eg death cert, 1851 census (two unmarried daughters and grandson), but no marriage details or daughters birth/death dates on Scotlands People. There may be a Berwick connection. If I could find John's wife this would be a great lead. David

Many thanks for your speedy response. I also read his inventory which confirms his two daughters as executors and they seem to have lived all their lives in Glasgow. I found the patent for evaporating machines and a couple of addresses, probably business addresses, in Glasgow which no longer exist. It's very odd that the daughters birth and deaths are not recorded or John's marriage! I did look for whole of Scotland. The grandson may be a berwick connection (census sates him as being born in England). David

A November 1848 marriage notice found in various newspapers of timescale:
Quote
.   Hugh Robertson, of Gartlock. to Margaret, eldest daughter of John Aitchison, Esq. merchant, Glasgow.   

Also, two July 1849 deaths:

Quote
.    Sauchiehall Street, on the Ist instant, James, second son. aynd Deptford on the 2d, Walter, eldest son of Mr. John Aitchison, merchant, Glasgow.   


Likely index for Walter's death with surname variant:
Aitcheson    Walter        Greenwich    5   187

Possible family group in London at 1841, with surname mis-transcribed::

Walter   Atchieson   Male   40   1801   Scotland
Elizabeth   Atchieson   Female   30   1811   Middlesex, England
John   Atchieson   Male   7   1834   India
Walter   Atchieson   Male   4   1837   Middlesex, England
Elizabeth   Atchieson   Female   2   1839   Middlesex, England
Archibald   Atchieson   Male   0   1841   Middlesex, England

and fits for the grandson, Walter, in Glasgow at 1851.
