Looking for Strutt (Scotland)

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Hi everyone,

I'm really keen to delve deeper into the Strutt line of my family tree, unfortunately I'm stuck at the first hurdle as the Scottish census aren't anywhere near his time. My great grandfather's name was Ernest Strutt and he was born 09/03/1919. From what the family have told me, he was born in Scotland and had a sister called Valorie and sister called Iris. He may have had a sister called Hester, but that also may have been his mother's maiden name, there's confusion in the family over which is true. We also believe his father's name was Harold, but we can't confirm this.

He married Lily Harrison in 1940 and had 4 children, Norma, David, Gail and Janice and settled in Chatham/Rochester, Kent area. I'm looking to find out about his parents and their siblings so I can trace it back to the Strutt's in the Scottish Census. There's aren't many at all in Scotland so even one or two names might help me. I know he was in the military and I believe he was on the Navy side.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Carrie

Scotlands People shows the following births in Ross and Cromarty
Iris Strutt 1920
Valerie Strutt 1929
Hester Strutt 1916

Along with Ernest these 4 are the only Strutt births 1915 to 1935 in Ross and Cromarty, although there are others in other districts

Hopefully this would be the marriage to go with the births - and an image would be available online for 5 credits
30 credits = £7.
