Note on Marriage

Could be Spanish blood in here somewhere - a Spanish Galleon from the Armada was wrecked in Tobermory bay. Agnes MacFarlane - Catherine's mother came from Mull.


Note - Mabel's notes had her maiden name as McLean - but this is plainly wrong.

Note on Husband: James YOUNG

The Mitchell, Dunlop and Young families moved en masse to Edinburgh somewhere between 1878 and 1881. They all lived together (14 or 15 of them) at 29 Thistle Street.

His death certificate refers to another document - Vol XIV p114 2 Sep 1904 - presumably an inquest or similar.14

Note on Wife: Catherine MITCHELL

Catherine was her parents 4th child - 2 previous boys had died, one girl still alive at the time of her birth.


Death was registered by her daughter Margaret Donaldson11

Appears as a witness on this certificate - brother is slightly speculative - but the name Mitchell makes it highly likely since that is their mother's maiden name.
