if you have not got it I would recommend you get it to confirm her parents names before guessing at a marriage certificate of her parents

Births Jun 1864 (>99%)
GUEST Mary Waters West Derby 8b 437

There is a possibility of 2 William Guests, one withe father William and one with father Edward

Well, it just so happens that I had a few spare credits for Scotland's People, and Joyce is a nice lady, so here we go:

William Guest (ship's carver) married Elizabeth Jeffrey on 18 July 1860 in the High Church, Glasgow. She was the daughter of Robert Jeffrey (a miller, deceased) and Isabella (looks like Tittilan). The marriage also confirms that William's mother was Esther Brookes. His father William Guest - a ship's smith.

:-D :-D :-D :-D

Many thanks to you too, Ozi.

I'll certainly follow the three Elizabeths up.

Thank you for your kind words, MarieCeleste, and for your information.

It's fantastic that I've got as far as Glasgow and back again in a few hours!

Thank you for using your spare credits and finding my ancestors for me.

I can now add so much to my family tree, I'm excited!
