Hello,

George WEST b. 16 July 1867 Temple, Midlothian, Scotland
– Parent Anne WEST.

I'd like a look up for the family in 1871 please.

Regards,

Dave

Hello,

I have lots of members of the WEST family born in Temple or Borthwick parishes but I don't have an Anne and I don't know how she fits in. No father listed on the entry for George.

Perhaps they both died before 1871. Bit of a mystery.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie.

No.

The only George in my tree is the one born abt 1817 Temple who died in 1880 Temple parish.

Hi Dave,

The nearest I could find is a George West born abt 1870 St Cuthberts, parents John and Ann.

1881 England has a George West born at 1869 Midlothian living in Northumberland, but the parents are Edwin and Mary A.

However there are several Ann WESTs such as this one:


Marriage
Anne WEST and William KERR 3 Nov 1858 Liberton (Edinburgh), Midlothian

Hello Julie,

Thanks for looking.

Another one:

Ann WEST b. 23 Jan 1846 Saint Cuthberts, Edinburgh, Midlothian

And that's not the one who married in 1858 either.

Regards,

Dave
