    Default 1801 innkeepers in Leslie, Fife

    Does anyone have any details on my ggggrandfather Robert Alison who was an innkeeper in Leslie, Fife, in 1801. He was married to Isobel Oswald and had family Robert Oswald Alison b1801, Ebenezer Alison b1802, Isabel Alison b 1804 and David Alison b1806. Robert Alison senior and son Robert became butchers in Leslie.
    The name Isobel could have changed to Isabel /Isabella or even Elizabeth over the years.
    Thanks

    My gggggrandparents were also Robert and Isabel Allison from leslie, my line comes from their son Robert and his wife Margaret Robertson, their daughter Janet born c1838 in Leslie Fife was my gggrandmother. I know that in the 1851 census Robert and Margaret were living in New Stevenston in Lanarkshire with Janet aged 13 and their son John aged 7, also staying with them were their daughter Christina and her husband James Blyth, Robert and his son-in-law James are both Flesher's. I am assuming that the family moved from Fife between 1846 and 1851.
    Janet married Andrew Hutton in 1860 at Clarkston in Airdrie, witnesses at the wedding were William Allison and Ebenezer Allison, I also have details of a marriage for William in 1861 to Agnes Connel at Bowling Green Cottage in Airdrie, he was 26 and a widower, therefore there must have been a previous marriage, Ebenezer was a witness at the wedding, William's occupation at the time of the wedding was a hammerman, although he appears in the 1871 census as a butcher and his wife Agnes as a shopkeeper.
    There is still a butcher's shop in Main Street Coatbridge called JP&W Allison which I believe was established in 1855 by the family.

    Donnie,
    We're related!
    My ggrandfather was Ebenezer Alison (full title Ebenezer Erskine Oswald Alison, later to become Allison) and your Janet's elder brother.
    I've quite a lot of info on our line and will come back to you.
    Regards

    Hi, not sure if we're related or not but my Grandad was an Ebenezer Erskine Oswald Allison, my Dad is William Oswald Allison from Lossiemouth, I realise the posts were from 2009 but maybe you are still on the site. Love to hear from you.

    Red face Another E E O Allison relative

    Ebenezer E O Allison is also a relation of mine. He is my G G grandfather. His son Thomas was my G grandfather and his daughter Lily was my Granny. I have just started researching this side of the family so would welcome any help in finding other relatives.
