Default Useful for Scottish research

I have just found reference to a child born to my great-great-grandmother and have requested details about the father. Unfortunately no entry for my great-grandmother.

Wow!

I have had an email back and they say they have found the paternity record for my great-grandmother! I have just ordered the details for £9.99. Can't wait to find out who my great-great-grandfather was!

This is a long-standing brick wall and I didn't expect ever to discover who my great-great-grandfather was. I keep checking my inbox to see if an e-mail has arrived!

There are at least two more records I might buy later.

https://www.oldscottish.com/seafield.html
On this page John Christie Richardson born 18th December 1874.

He is on the 1881 Census with his mother Elizabeth and grandmother Jane Richardson as John C Dempster. Elizabeth was my 2x-great-grandmother Isabella's sister.

He later took the surname McBeath when his mother Elizabeth married William McBeath.


Secondly, the record I found first. My 2x-great-grandmother had another illegitimate daughter in 1870 - Anne or Annie. https://www.oldscottish.com/grange.html

I clicked to order this but also put a query about my great-grandmother Isabella, and they replied to that but not Anne. I suspect her father's surname was Cameron as she was given as Annie R Cameron on one census.

Ooh, how exciting! I can still remember my disbelief and excitement when I found, quite accidentally, a bastardy order for my illegitimate 2 x ggf. Followed by my further disbelief and excitement when the lady at the RO asked me if I realised there were further follow on removal and settlement orders!

I have a theory that we only come across these documents once we have given up all hope, lol. It's as if our ancestors come out of hiding once they realise we aren't playing hide and seek any more.
