Parents the important bit Emeltee.

I know from other sources it's George West and Grace Horn(e). This marriage contains new details on Robert - age and occupation and parents.

Just checking it is as I've transcribed - Alexander Trench (deceased) and Sarah Caw.

Thanks Emeltee.

More of the puzzle on the Scotland board. Using 'Sarah Caw' I can't find anything.


One more piece of the marriage - the minister and the witnesses.

Cathcart Leslie ??
Minr. of Borthwick

John Trench Witness
Catran West Witness * Catherine is Mary's twin sister

The marriage was on 24th August but there is an error here:

Registered at Borthwick June ? 27th 1855 by Alexander MacDougall Registrar

...Lasswade, , Midlothian, Scotland Find all individuals with events ... she enjoyed the ministry of the Rev. Cathcart Leslie, of the Established Church. ...
John Trench is a name I've not seen before.

ScotlandsPeople have it indexed as FRENCH.
