Re: Marion Jack Tait who died in Glasgow 1919.....
I ran an SP check
This woman is not relevant to this thread
She was 75yrs old when she died. Means she was born circa 1848.
She married William Ford Grimstone in Lanarkshire in 1868
Was born in Hamilton, Lanarkshire, daughter of John Tait and (another ) Marion Jack

Just to recap:
Henry Boulton and Marion Jack Riddick :
Married in Troqueer, Kirkcudbright in 1900

Pretty certain that Marion Jack Riddick was the daughter of John Riddick and Joan Andrew.
Married in Inveresk with Musselburgh in 1876.

Again, I am sure that Joan Andrew was the born in Dalkeith circa 1850 to
Peter Andrew and Marion Jack who married in Dalkeith on 27 Jun 1835

Traditionally, a first born daughter is named for her mother's mother...
ie Marion Jack RIDDICK

Re Jack as a mid-name:
Especially in Scotland, it wasn't unusual to have a surname as a mid-name. All 3 of my aunts had this - two were given their mum's maiden surname, and the other, her gran's maiden surname.

On second thoughts.... I need to check my maths skills

Joan Andrews b 1856 that I selected was the daughter of this couple
groom's name: Peter Andrew
groom's birth date:
groom's birthplace:
groom's age:
bride's name: Marion Gillies
marriage date: 22 Dec 1854
marriage place: Dalkeith,Midlothian,Scotland


And then I found this:
Joan Andrew, wife of John Riddick was born circa 1850.
This IS the family from the 1841/185T census returns that I posted... DUH!

groom's name: Peter Andrew
groom's birth date:
groom's birthplace:
groom's age:
bride's name: Marion Jack
bride's birth date:
bride's birthplace:
bride's age:
marriage date: 27 Jun 1835
marriage place: Dalkeith,Midlothian,Scotland

There are no children listed on FS for Peter Andrew and Marion Jack but all the children on the census returns were born between 1835 and 1850

The death certificate of the above will give her parents names which will either confirm or eliminate that one.

As Marion had such an unusual middle name, I'm wondering if this could be relevant?

Elizabeth was born 1915 Doris Winifred was 1916. She went into the workhouse in Sept 16th 1910 and came out in April 1911. Henry went to America came back in 1909, then emigrated in 1910 with Maud and Monty. Came back into Liverpool, but don't know when he first went or from where. would like a marriage certificate for Henry and Marion, Marion's death certificate and info on Henry going to America and what month he returnd in 1910.
