Not near a main line, Geoff.

Two sisters of George West ended up in NSW and one married a Sands.

But parents don't fit those listed on Robert's marriage.

Alexander & Sarah not Robert & Mary.

The 1841 is very interesting with the names TRENCH and HUTCHISON. Where is Sarah and son Robert H.?

I have a copy of the 1855 marriage but have not transcribed the lot. Rather difficult to read so it will end up in pieces on the Documents board.

Two pieces posted.

I can't find a Sarah as French or Trench in Midlothian in 1841 or 1851.

I can't find her death.

The only Sarah Caw birth/baptism in SP is this one.

CAW SARAH DEMOND - PHILIP CAW/MARTHA MOIR FR3758 (FR3758 ) 0 14/02/1833 692/1 90 122 Leith North

The only marriage for a Sarah CAW is in 1849 to a James Pesque.

Robert Hutchison TRENCH, a cooper, aged 21 in 1855 when he married - parents Alexander, a cooper and Sarah CAW.

Then stuck.

Back to this one and I'm still confused.

2x Robert born Leith abt 1834 both coopers - one with parents Robert & Mary [not mine] and one with parents Alexander & Sarah Caw [mine].

That marriage can be the starting point.

One birth with a middle name for the Robert in my tree.
