In 1901 Scottish census living at 19 Shields Buildings, Dunkeld Road, Perth
John Jolly aged 54 (1847) a Mason born Muthil, Perth
Jane Jolly 47 (1854) Forfar, Forfarshire
Daniel aged 6 (1895) Perth.

There are quite a few marriages in Scotland for John Jolly and Jane between 1855 and 1900 (my search) but only one in Forfar which took place in 1892 between John Jolly and Jane Thom

In 1891 Scottish Census John was a 43 year old widower, boarding at Lorne Place, Broomage Lane, Larbert, Stirlingshire

In 1881 Scottish census he is boarding at 224 High Street, Middlechurch, Perthshire, unmarried

Hi Silver Vixen,
thank you for checking the marriage info on my great grandfather.

For some reason, I think I remember seeing on the internet that a Jane Sievewright Thom married a John Jolly in 1892 in Forfar and they emigrated to Canada. But I can't google that info up now, so I can't check if this is the same Jane Thom.

Can you check if this might be my great grandparents marriage?
Marriage 1893 details Date: 13 Dec 1893
John Jolly to Jane Howe Henderson at ?
Born: 1854 Forfar, Forfarshire

My great grandfather's previous marriage may have been to a Jane Black and I think they may have had a child?

Just a thought, are you able to find out when my great grandparents died?

Thank you for your help.

John Jolly married Jane H Henderson in Clunie, Perth in 1893. The following site will give the information you need for Scotland, it is a Government site and you need to buy credits to see the information
