In Reply to: Re: INGLIS, SANDILAMDS - North Leigh Edinburgh, Scotland by debra arif of 735

Part 2 of 2... data and notes on my Inglis connection:
GRANDMOTHER:
Jane McDonald Milne INGLIS b: 2 Sep 1899 in Leith; m: 14 Feb 1923 Kinnairds Hall, Leith to Alfred Donald SHEWAN; d: 2 Oct 1925 in Montreal, Quebec
Child: Robert Donald SHEWAN [mother died in childbirth]
Jane was a 23 year-old spinster, working as a clerk and living at 71 North Fort Street Leith when she married Alfred Donald Shewan. She immigrated to Canada between 1923 and 1925 where she died shortly after birth of son, Robert Donald.
Ethel Inglis witnessed Jane's marriage. She also lived at 71 North Fort Street. Could have been either a sister or an aunt.
The 1881 Census lists only one Ethel INGLIS. She was living at 14 Millerfield Place in Edinburgh St Cuthberts, Edinburgh, Scotland [GRO Vol 685-5 EnumDist 101 Pg 2] in the home of Margaret CALLENDER, unwed, age 40 from Glasgow. Also residing there were: Margaret's nephew, Fergus David FERGUSON, 20 b: Calcutta, India, a Bank Accountant; her niece, Mary Ann C.

The 1901 Census for the Civil Parish of Leith, Ecclesiatical Parish of St. Cuthbert's includes a record for Charles Inglis, 24, a butcher born in Leith; his 23-year-old wife, Margaret from Edinburgh and one-year-old daughter, Jane born in Leith living at 44 West Bowling Green Street. The building consisted of 5 homes including that of George Inglis, 34 and his wife Jemima 33 along with their children: Alexander, Elizabeth, George and James. This was likely Charles' brother George -- born in 1866.
According to marriage records for Charles Robertson Inglis' daughter Jane, in 1923 he was a butcher's manager. IGI lists no marriage for any Charles Inglis between 1874 - 1914 in Midlothian
