    I was puzzled why Annie McArthur Cruickshank (b. 1893) and Margaret Buntin Cruickshanks (b.1899) were both given first and second names outwith the Cruickshank family. To do this I looked at the census returns to find out what families were living at the addresses where both girls were born, i.e. 31 Alma St., Govan and 480 Rutherglen Rd., Hutchesontown, Glasgow, respectively.
    I found that Annie McArthur Cruickshank was born at the same tenement address as an Ann McArthur age 50 (living with her husband Alexander. She would have assisted in the birth of our Annie.
    Again consulting the census returns I discovered that Margaret Buntin Cruickshank was born at the same tenement address as a Margaret Bunton (different surname spelling). Margaret Bunton (then aged 19) , a servant, would have assisted in the birth of our Margaret Buntin Cruickshank. Margaret Bunton was working as a servant for an Alexander Gardiner, a Spirit Salesman.
    As a result, this firmly establishes that both girl’s i.e. Annie and Margaret were named after the women who helped to delivered them.
     
    DNA Explained Mitochondrial DNA
    is the fact that this DNA is maternally inherited. Males and females inherit a copy of MtDNA from their mother. Nuclear DNA, on the other hand, is inherited equally from both parents; a child will inherit 50% of their nuclear DNA from the mother and the other 50% from their father.
    A MtDNA copy is passed down entirely unchanged, through the maternal line. Males cannot pass their MtDNA to their offspring although they inherit a copy of it from their mother.

    • Was already a Widower when he married Jane Cruickshanks. George and Jane or Jeanie were married by a "warrant of the Sheriff Substitute" - i.e. an irregular marriage which was unique to Scotland.
      Historically when Scotland became a Protestant nation for various reasons the Church of Scotland was the Established church and anyone marrying outside this was considered to have embarked on an 'irregular' marriage. That is only part of the story though.

      Marriage in Scotland is considered a contract and those who declared their intention to marry before witnesses could be considered married without any religious ceremony or blessing of the clergy.
      A couple who lived together as man and wife and behaved in all ways as a married couple could also be considered as married without any ceremony or formal agreement.
      Naturally the established church did not like it when folks set up house without their approval but the law of the land not only permitted it but also would uphold their rights in a court of law.

      Conclusion is that Jane was living as George's common law wife and then the couple decided to register their living together - hence married under Warrant of Sheriff Substitute. The witnesses to their declaration were Margaret Allison or Gilchrist and Margaret Gray of ?Paul.


      The declaration of marriage certificate states her first name as "Jeannie Cruickshank".
      Jane (Jeanie) Cruickshank was living at 125 Caledonia Road, Glasgow (same address as given on dtr. Annie's marriage cert) when she married George Morin who was also living at the same address at the time. Her parents were recorded as George Cruickshank, Baker, deceased and Margaret Cruickshanks ms Greig, deceased. She was 39 when she got married.

      George Morin was living at 125 Caledonia Road, Glasgow (same address as given on Annie Cruickshank) when he married Jane(Jeanie) who was also living at the same address at the time. He stated he was an Engineer's labourer. His parents were recorded as Thomas Morin a Farmer, deceased and Elizabeth Morin, previously Hutchison, and ms Wilson (his mother must have married twice).
