Re: RCE John Strathie

It certainly looks from the 1871 cen. that John Strathie snr is in Linlithgow, address West Pardovan.
His wife Janet was born West Kirk, Edinburghshire!

Re: RCE John Strathie

Had a look at the MC1874 between John Strathie and Jane Sharp, John was a railway guardsman, but the ironic thing is his father was John Strathie and was a Farm ????, Ploughman in brackets.
I'm not very good at deciphering certificates

Re: RCE John Strathie

Thank you,

Re: RCE John Strathie

Thats what I found, not many Strathie's especially Johns.
Margaret was a Domestic servant, she already had a illegitimate son John b1870, then Elizabeth b1873, could it be she worked for John Srathie?

Re: So difficult

Thanks Alan,
I know what you mean about the handwriting present day, I'm from the time when we had to practice our handwriting at school, and were marked on it.
