I'm trying to trace my family tree back to Scotland. My Great-Granded was John Dickson Dalgleish, born in Edinburgh around 15th April 1888 and lived at No. 10 Windmill Street? Edinburgh. He married Mildred Mary Webb (from Churchover) on 27th June 1919 in Rugby, Warwickshire. He was then living in Churnside and worked as a tailor. He died on 26th February 1977 at the Cottage Hospital in Lutterworth, At that time he was a retired aircraft factory cleaner and lived at 10 Ellwell Avenue, Dunton Bassett, Lutterworth, Leics.
His parents were Alexander Dalgleish Margaret Hood-Reid Dalgleish (nee Dickson). Alexander was born around 1856 and Margaret was born around 1863. They married on 25th April 1884 in the district of Newington in Edinburgh. Alexander was living in Hutton? Berwick and Margaret lived at Chirnside? Berwick. Alexander was also a tailor. He died on 6th April 1918 at Ninewells Mill, Chirnside. Margaret died on 23rd November 1920 also at Ninewells Mill, Chirnside.
Alexander Dalgleish's parents were Robert Dalgleish and Janet Dalgleish (nee Chisholm) of 2 Kennedy Road. Robert was a Groom.
Margaret's parents were John Dickson and Janet Dickson (nee Hood).
If anyone can let me have any further information about any of the above I would be very interested in hearing from you!
My Father in law had a mother called Wilhelmina Dickson Dalgleish who later changed her name by deed poll to White, her mother ( his grandmother) was Isabella Dickson Dalgleish who's parents were Alexander Dalgleish and Margaret Hood Reid Dickson,other than this we have no other information on the family - could John and Isabella have been related?have you ever heard of an isabella or Her daughter wilhelmina? Isabella died in Rugby St cross in 1968. ive never come across any brothers and we have no knowledge on who my father in laws dad was officially. i cant find any of them on 1911 cenus either.
I am looking into the lives of my Great grand parents John and Janet Dickson who lived at 10 windmill st from 1887 However Janets maiden name was Flinn (or Flynn I have found two documents with different spellings) They had two children that I know of Agnes Cameron b. 1888 and my grandfather John Archibald b, 1890 It seems strange that two Janet and John Dicksons have ties to 10 Windmill st.
Have you learnt anymore? do you think there is a connection?
I'm trying to trace my family history - my Great Grandma was Helen Campbell Gow, who I believe was born/lived in Findhorn, her father was Tom Gow and her mother's maiden name was Campbell. If anyone has any information on this family I would be really interested to hear from you!
