Looking for Simon Hutcheon born 1852, his wife Helen. They appear on England 1901 census (in London) but they're not on the 1891. They were from Aberdeen, so could have moved to London at any time prior to 1901. It would be great to find them on Scottish records and find their relations / ancestors. Appreciate it if you could help.

Hi Anne,
Trying to find my gg grandparents. I know this may not be enough information but it's all i have at the moment.
William Mackintosh and Helen Walker in the aberdeen area, i think William may have been a farmer. I'm also not sure if they were even married at this point in time.

Kind Regards

Her father was a Percy Harold Price and her grandfather was called Thomas James Price.
