1851
Piece: 465
Registration District: Alloa
County: Clackmannanshire
Roll: CSSCT1851_
ED: 5
Address: Kirkgate
Marion Dewar Head 41 Fifeshire
Archibald Dewar Son 15 Weaver Midlothian
Margaret Dewar Dau 12 Midlothian

I can't find a marriage that fits for a Marian/Marion and I can't find baptisms that fit for Archibald and Margaret.

So far I can't find the family in 1841 or any of them in 1861.

If I have the right Archibald he was a stoker in the merchant marine.

Thanks,

Dave

Dunno Geoff.

I think Archibald was born Edinburgh, Midlothian so tried to find him in 1851 and that was best found so far.

Can't prove it's the right 1851.

There are problems galore.

Cecilia was born Torryburn, Fife and if Archibald was born Midlothian why marry in Alloa?

If Archibald remarried then this fits for the 1881 posted.

Marriage 1878 DEWAR ARCHIBALD - DRYSDALE MARGARET 466/ 23 Clackmannan

1879 DEWAR CHRISTINA OGILV F 692/1 581 Leith North
1881 DEWAR MARGARET RITCHI F 692/1 213 Leith North

Only 2x trees, one may be of use.. It has the marriage and says that the info is from the GROS, it says his parents are Archibald Dewar and Allison Douglas.

Thanks Geoff.

Daughter named after her mother - Cecilia Masterton * normally would be 3rd daughter.

Daughter named after father's mother and not sticking to usual naming pattern.

DEWAR
ARCHIBALD
ALICE DOUGLAS/FR1349 (FR1349)
03/11/1834
685/2
430 207
St Cuthbert's

In 1881 Alison Douglas Dewar is Alice D Dewar.


No Dewar baptisms in Midlothian that fit after that marriage.

Thanks Geoff.

I think we have found the right marriage. It rules out that 1851.

So still looking for Archibald born Midlothian abt 1837 in 1841, 1851 and 1861.
