Hi,

I have found the marriage certificate of my great great grandparents but having problems trying to read it, is anyone able to help?



I can make out my great great grandfather's name, George Lean and I think my great great gran was called Janet Lambie.

Looks like my great-great grandfather was from Greyshaw Farm in Lesmahagow and she came from Inverkip.

Can't make out what their parents were called or their professions were, although some look like it was farmer.

Any help gratefully appreciated.

If you could post a copy of the certificate or a link to where we could see it, that would be a great help. We can't decipher anything we can't see!

Weeyin,

I have had a look and his father is Samuel Lean and mother Janet Scott

Hers is Thomas Lambie and mother Christina (Kirkland?) Not sure about the latter surname as the writing isn't great and it could be Rickland. Kirkland more logical but you can now look for this pair in the records to confirm. Both fathers are farmers.

Should find South Greystone on that free site.
