23 and 24 November

Just two over two days: an Aberdeenshire Hutcheon/Hutchison who might have become the local post master, and a Yorkshire grand uncle born in Leeds.

24 November 1844
Baptism of Alexander Hutcheon at Longside, son of my gggg uncle Alexander Hutcheon and Margaret Hutcheon. He’s with his parents and siblings in Kirk Street, Longside in 1851, off working as a farm servant in 1861 and the back with his parents in 1871, working as a shoemaker. He was informant for his father’s death in 1875. It then looks as if he married Jessie Low, had a son, and become a grocer and postmaster in Belhelvie – the census says that Alexander was born in Longside but it could be a different Alexander. Paying to view the marriage certificate would confirm it, but there’s a limit to how much I want to spend with ScotlandsPeople!

23 November 1909
Birth of my great uncle Walter Green at Kirkstall, Leeds, Yorkshire, son of Joseph Green and Charlotte Senior. He was brought up in Kirkstall, married Olive and had 2 children. He and his family moved to London and lived in Wembley.
