Do you have a copy of the marriage certificate??

I couldn't find a George Nicol to Janet Waddell marriage in Berwickshire between 1860-1870, perhaps the surname spelling is different.

Do you have any further details on George, occupation, fathers name and occupation any Census records for Berwickshire?

This is interesting

1881 Scotland Census about Janet Nichol
Name: Janet Nichol
Age: 12
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1869
Relationship: Grandaughter (Granddaughter)
Gender: Female
Where born: Edinburgh, Midlothian
Registration number: 743
Registration District: Greenlaw
Civil Parish: Greenlaw
Town: Greenlaw
County: Berwickshire
Address: 1 High St (Temp Hotel)
Occupation: Scholar

Household Members:
Name Age
Janet Waddell 59 b Gordon Berwickshire (presume Janet's mother)
Janet Nichol 12 b Edinburgh Midlothian

These three men are listed as Lodgers
Thomas Walker 19
James McLauchlan 45
Patrick Connell 65

Looks like Janet's mother ran the Temp Hotel and grand daughter Janet was there at time of Census and it says that she was born in Edinburgh.

Looks like Janet is with her grandmother in 1871 Census as well

1871 Scotland Census about Janet W Nichol
Name: Janet W Nichol

Registration number: 743
Registration District: Greenlaw
Civil Parish: Greenlaw

This could possibly be George & Janet in 1871 Census

1871 Scotland Census about George Nicol

Janet Nicol 21 b Berwickshire

I think George birth should read Greenlaw Berwickshire

thanks for trying but I already have this info. I can find no trace of janet after 1991 census or of the rest of the family after an advert in 1878 in greenlaw for G
george 's bakery.
janet waddell's brother died in Australia so I think they may have emigrated there as well
I omitted their youngest son alexander b 1874 also mis-spelt Nichol-so many different spellings

thanks for replying I already have all the early info on this family .The last trace of George is an advert in 1878/79 for a bakers shop opening in greenlaw Berwickshire they are not in the 1881 census Daughter janet always lived with her grandmother but cannot find her after 1891 census

janet waddell's brother james(?)died in Australia 1880/82 so maybe that's where they went
