Primary events

  • Birth: George Scott was born in 1874 in Pointon, Lincolnshire, England, In 1911 this was said to be Lincoln. Pointon is a village 7 miles north of Bourne.
  • Marr Reg: The marriage of George and Alice Harriet Woodcock was registered in the quarter ended December 1899 in the an unknown place registration district.1

Secondary circumstances

  • Occupation: George was a fruiterer in 1901, but a fitter in 1911, which fits much better with his being a blacksmith's apprentice in 1891. Maybe the census taker in 1901 mis-heard, or mis-read his notes when he filled in the final schedule.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: In 1891, he may have been with his mother, Frances, a widow, 2 of his younger sisters and a nephew. If this is he, he was the son of William SCOTT and Frances nee COOK (from ancestry trees, not checked).
  • Research note 02: There are a number of deaths of George SCOTTs of the right age in England, but none in the same District as the death I believe to be Alice. The best fit is Mar qtr 1961 aged 85 in Boston 3b/5.
  • Research note 03: I found a current person on ancestry who has George, son of Frances, in their tree. (refer to research note 1) He does not have any wife nor family. I sent off a message to him, referring him to 1901 and 1911 census. I will let you know if anything comes of it. Owner: paulrichardscott.
  • Research note 04: I checked the Boston Cemetery site out, and they seem to do searches at no cost, but I was unable to get the form to work. I think it may not allow overseas entries == an obvious oversight.
