Hi,

I am trying to find information (if any exists) on a marriage between Hugh McKay and Annie McLean.

Currently, I have found a birth certificate for Martin McKay whom was born in 1882 and the birth certificate showed his father as being Hugh and his mother as Annie. Martin came from Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria, UK.

Another question would be, is if they didn't get married, I won't be able to find out any more information about Hugh McKay or his partner's background?

Thanks for any help.

I can't see a birth reg or a baptism yet for Hugh junior or Thomas.

I have not yet found the death reg for Hugh senior.

I can't find the marriage.

A possible birth reg for Hugh McKay.

Hugh McCoy.
A/M/J. - 1873.
R.D. Chorlton.
Vol.- 8c.
Page. - 706.

Steve.:)
1874 on the GRO with mmn McLean.

I think it has to be the right family in 1881 in Barrow In Furness.

If the census image only has Glasgow it will be hard finding the right Annie McLean.

1901 census and a death for Annie?

Thanks for such a warm welcome and all the help. It is much appreciated. I think you are right, Dave, its hard to see how it can be any other family, possibly with people I haven't yet accounted for. I wonder if the name 'McKie' got changed down to 'McKay' or somewhere along the lines, it got spelt wrong, since Martin as far as I know was 'McKay,' but that is an assumption. My grandfather 'David,' was certainly 'McKay,' so I am thinking somewhere down the line, a simple, potential mis-spelling was why I couldn't find the information.

Anyways, thanks again. It is much appreciated. :)

Sometimes the family name changes through the generations but also it's simply the way it's written in records based the name being heard. The census enumerator would usually hear the names and not be given a written list.
