  • ID: I17
  • Name: Alison MITCHELL
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: Abt 1810
  • Death: Aft 1872
  • Note:
    Alison only appears on one census (1841) with her family. By 1851 she is absent from the Logierait census, though her husband and children are there. However the marriage certificates for children Robert and Isabella both state her to be alive in 1857 and 1858 respectively.

    The 1851 census for Edinburgh records an Alison Butters living with a 2 year-old son John. She is the only possible match in Scotland and can be located on the 1861 (again with son John) and 1871 (alone) censuses as well. In 1851 she is described as widowed, in 1861 as married and in 1871 as widowed. Given that she seems to have been estranged from her husband, this inaccuracy is perhaps not surprising.

    It is possible to hypothesise that, on finding she was expecting another child, she left Logierait and returned to Edinburgh, abandoning husband John and her children. What happened to son John has yet to be determined. 1 2 3
