Brick Wall - Hugh Alexander Fraser/Janet Mason

Postby rubypaw » Sat Apr 29, 2017 12:12 pm

Hugh Alexander Fraser was born 1814? in Inverness and married Janet Mason born 1816? in Inverness.I have no other details about them. The marriage took place 8/7/1833 in Inverness. They have the following children all in Inverness:

Jane baptized 5/12/1833 but not on 1841 census
Alexander Hugh baptized 8/12/1835
Catherine baptized 5/6/1838 married John McKenzie and to Australia died 27/9/1886 (my great great Grandmother)
Jessie Fraser baptized 3/3/1840
Williamina Fraser b 10/11/1842 to Australia and married John Alexander Pattison died 13/12/1911
Isabella Fraser batptized 9/6/1845 but not on 1851 census

The 1841 census they are living in Chisholms close, Muirton Street, Inverness
The 1851 census they are at 18 Duff street and Hugh is described as a widower.
1861 census 18 Duff street has Williamina and Jessie with Ann Mason.
Who is Ann Mason? What happened to Alexander (the son) and Jessie? When did Hugh senior, Janet, Jane and Isabella die?

Thank you for the reply but I don't think these are my family as the census addresses are wrong.

Just a note that I've moved this topic to 'General research queries' as it's more suited to there, but you can still post your comments!

Rubypaw,
Don't know if your on scotlands people or not but they list:
Janet 69 deaths listed from 1855 onwards
Jane 572 deaths listed from 1856 onwards
Isabella 379 deaths listed from 1855 onwards
Jessie 215 deaths listed from 1856 onwards.
Deciding which ones are yours could take some time.
good luck
Grace

In your original post you have William Fraser born 1842 to Australia married John Alexander Pattison died December 1911.
This did not look correct it might be an early civil partnership but I suspect something might be missing or should have been inserted somewhere else
