Another two for the price of one download from ScotlandsPeople came up today. I hadn’t looked at the 1873 marriage certificate for Mary Ann Matthew (featured in today’s “on this day” post) so decided to download it. You get the image of the whole page, which means two certificates. The other one was for George Hutchison and Catherine Morgan – with those surnames I felt sure they must belong on my tree.
The certificate says Catherine Morgan was the daughter of Arthur Morgan and Catherine Adams, and her father is surely Arthur Morgan born in 1841, son of Arthur Morgan born 1815 who was the son of the sister of my ggggg grandmother. He was also related to my great grandfather’s second wife. The George Hutchison who married Catherine Morgan was the son of George Hutchison and Jane Adams, and I’ve got a feeling they are both related to people already on my family tree, so there’s another bit of genealogical sleuthing to do. The same surnames keep cropping up when my Aberdeenshire ancestors get married and they do weave a tangled web.
