I can't seem to find a marriage for them between 1901 and 1952 - all the marriages for Moores and Muirs are unfortunately just before she died or after she died. - Do you know where abouts in Scotland they got married?

Dear Emma,
Please could you do a look up for me. I cannot find any details about my great aunt, Janet, who was born in West Ham, London l880/1. She was married to a Henry Langham and then to a William Haines. As I cannot find her in West Ham after 1918 I was wondering if she went to Scotland to live, as both her parents were from Greenock. Her maiden name was Baxter.
Many thanks for your help,
Kind regards, Liz

There is a death for a Margaret Ann Bruce - Other Surnames Sinclair - Mothers maiden Name Anderson in 1979 - Registered in Aouth Ronaldsay - ORKNEY. The date is too recent to see online tho but it does give you the year she died.

I've had a look for a Francis Johnstone in the area but there is none with any of the two you gave me.

I also had a look for a marriage for both a John Johnstone and a Margaret Creighton and Helen Young. There is only one marriage in Scotland of a John Johnstone and Helen Young and it is in 1841 which would be too recent for the John you are looking for.

Sorry I couldn't be of much help

Dear Emma,

Please could you find the death of Neil Kelly born c1811 Donegal living in Glasgow (last address 19 Lyon Street, Milton) married to Rose Gaitans born c1819. He would have died after 1861 but before 1893. It would also be nice to know when Rose (poss Rosina) Kelly died too.

many thanks......Linda

Hi Emma,
Thanks for your time anyway. It looks like the John you found married to Helen in 1841 could be one of my relations born in 1808, son of Francis and Janet.
Thanks again, Ian

I've had a look for a marriage in Scotland but I can't seem to find them. Is there any chance that they married in England? or maybe even Turkey?

Sorry I've not been much use ..



Emma Report 26 May 2010 10:35


I've had a look for a Thomasina Campbell for around that year - I can't actually see the certificate as the birth is too recent but there is a birth of a Thomasina Campbell in Greenock East in 1916

I'm not sure if you have got the marriage of John and Henrietta ..

29 December 1904
The Manse, Ratho Street, Greenock
After publication according to the forms of the united free church.
John Campbell - Iron Driller (Bachelor)
26 Years
5 Cowgate Street, Greenock
Father - William Campbell - Iron Driller
Mother - Agnes Campbell m/s Campbell
Henrietta Graham - Preserve Worker (Spinster)
20 Years
5 Cowgate Street, Greenock
Father - Thomas Graham - Stableman (deceased)
Mother - Mary Jane Graham m/s Kirkwood
Witnesses - John Humphrey & Ellen Haughie

I've had a look for deaths for a Thomasina Campbell too that would have been born around 1916 and there is 2 showing - again I can't see the images because the deaths are too recent but there is one in Glasgow aged 89 in 2006 and one in Edinburgh aged 86 in 2002.

Hi Emma
Thanks for your great help with the Laughton family. I am now looking for details of the birth of David Twiname, born c 1830 in Dumfrieshire, and his father William Twiname, born about 1788 in Kirkcudbright. Any info much appreciated.

Hi Emma

If I may take you up on your very kind offer.

I am looking for the baptism of John Tassie. He gives his birth as 1795 in Lanark.

And if I may be cheeky?....For the same man, a marriage. In 1833 he married in England as a widower so I wonder if his previous marriage was in Scotland.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.


Emma Report 26 May 2010 17:15


I've checked for a birth of a David Twiname for around that time and with William as a father but nothing seems to show - there is ..

John Twiname
13 January 1838
Father - William Twiname
Mother - no name shown on the certificate

I am thinking this may be a sibling of David?.

There is also 6 children with a father William Twiname in Crossmichael - Kirkcudbright between 1770 and 1838 - Twiname doesn't seem to be a popular name maybe they are relatives? ...

Agnes Colvile Twiname
21 February 1822
Father - William Twiname
Mother - Jean Copland

Alexander Twiname
16 August 1827
Father - William Twiname
Mother - Jean Copland

Grace Twiname
12 January 1819
Father - William Twiname
Mother - Jean Copland

William Twiname
28 February 1815
Father - William Twiname
Mother - Jean Copland

Alexander Twiname
9 April 1795
Father - William Twiname
Mother - Grace Muir

John Twiname
30 November 1770
Father - William Twiname
Mother - Janet Black

Not sure if that is much help.

I also had a look for a birth of a William Twiname around the year you said and there is only one that looks hopeful.

William Twyname (May have been a spelling mistake)
23 May 1790
Father - John Twyname
Mother - Margaret Carson

There is also ..

Margaret Twyname
1 January 1795
Father - John Twyname
Mother - Margaret Carson

Hope this has been useful
