George Langands

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Linda Report 26 Apr 2013 13:49

Been trying to find a death for George Langlands. He was born c.1831 in Kirriemuir, Angus. Married twice - 1st time to Jane (Jean) Watson and 2nd time to Julia Ogilvy (Ogilvie). Julia died in 1909 in Glasgow and I have found George in the 1911 census in North Leith age 82 but have had no luck finding a death for him.
George's parents were James Langlands and Mary Lindsay.
George had two children with his first wife Jane - Elizabeth who died in 1864 and William who was born in 1854 and died in 1929 in Tranent, East Lothian. From the second marriage to Julia, there were six children - James, John, Isabella, George, Alexander and Mary Ann. Isabella and George died young but the rest married and two lived in Edinburgh and two in Glasgow.
Any help would be appreciated.

Do you think he stayed in Scotland ?

Can you confirm the spelling of the surname

I think he would have stayed in Scotland. His son William and his family settled in East Lothian area (this is my line). His daughter Mary Ann's family were in Edinburgh ( Mary Ann married a William Hadden) as were his son John's family James and Alexander Langlands and their families were in Glasgow area. Both of these sons occupations were Tailors.
George's wife Julia died in 1909 and the death certificate was signed by her daughter in law Jessie, wife of Alexander Langlands. The death certificate states that Julia Langlands "married to George Langlands, Butcher" so he was obviously still alive when she died.
