    • 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).
