John Leiper is my 2nd great grandfather. I would like to find his marriage record. I believe he married a lady called Margery or Margaret Eddison. My dad told me about her after doing some family research a few years ago. It is possible that it could be another woman though.
This link is a question I have asked about finding records for Margery/Margaret Eddison: Any records for Margery/Margaret Eddison b. abt 1879 in Scotland
Anyway, more about John Leiper:
- He was born on 11 Aug 1881 in Portlethen, Kincardineshire, Scotland.
- His mother was called Ann Urquhart Leiper (I haven't found a maiden name).
- His father was called John Leiper.
- He had a child called Mina Urquhart Leiper (my great grandmother) in 1909 in Scotland. You can found out more about her in the above link.
- I'm not sure if he had any other kids.
- Accoring to my dad, he could have been a toolmaker or something similar.
