View Full Version : William Henry Scott fromFife movedto Carlise?

13-03-2010, 11:02 AM
My grandfather spent his married life in Carlisle, his birth year was 1897 (based on his age on his marriage certificate, and army medical papers). The only leads I have from my brothers/sisters are that he came from Scotland and Fife. I was unable to find any record of him as a a child via Scotland People, where else should I look?I am used to research English records, and don't know what's available for Scotish records.

Finally, can any one suggest why a family, or someone would move from Fife to Carlisle?

Thanks again

I've found this death record, not sure if you already know about it?

Name: William Henry Scott
Birth Date: 2 Oct 1896
Death Registration Month/Year: 1972
Registration district: Carlisle
Inferred County: Cumberland
Volume: 1a
Page: 90

I've looked on Ancestry for his birth but can't find anything unfortunately.

P.S. You say he was married. Was it to Isabella Buchan in 1919?

There is another earlier thread by Freddie concerning the search for William Henry Scott. To avoid duplication of research, I am closing this thread.
