|Looking for information on my G grandfather John Girdwood.
He was the son of
Richard and Margaret Girdwood m.1849 St Cuthberts Edinburgh. Richard had a dairy and greengrocers shop in Causewayside Edinburgh.
John Girdwood also had a dairy in Minto Street.
John had a son with Jemima Watson is housekeeper but they did not marry.My grandfather was adopted by the Hay family.
Several brickwalls but the main one is John's death -I can find no record in Scotland.
Anyone who has any information will be greeted warmly.
I also would love to know why his parents adopted him despite giving him both their names ie
John Watson Girdwood.
please get in touch if you are interested in this family.Many thanks
