Unless you can find info about his first name and birth year, your chances of tracing him must be zero

Ozibird Report 12 Oct 2012 23:06

Just to give you an idea of what you're asking - there are over 1 000 male records for Rae born Scotland in the 1881 Scottish census, and over 2 000 in 1891.

Do you know more about Jane Laidlaw? Where was she living when she was engaged to Mr Rae?

If Jane Laidlaw is your relative, this man has no connection to you, unless he fathered a child with her during the engagement, and even then, it's a tenuous link.
