17 April 2019

Good Day,

The day is the 12th of May 1855. It is Saturday, and it is a nice day for a wedding.

This is the date that Great-Great Grandparents Alexander and Sarah Ann Rosetta (née McKowen) Scott were married.

Here is the 1855 Marriage Registration.

As the 1855 Marriage Registration states that Great-Great Grandfather Alexander Scott was a “Clerk in Holy Orders” and “of St, David’s Parish", is it possible that this may have been one of his early appointments in Grenada once he finished at St. Augustine’s College in Canterbury, England?

Also could GG-Grandfather Alexander have been “stationed” at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Genville in the Parish of St. David’s?

And here is a coincidence. Both witnesses' first names were "Henry". GG-Grandparents Alexander and Sarah's first son "Henry Alexander Cumberland Scott" was born just under a year later, on 16 April 1856 at Paradise Pen, Kingston, Jamaica.

The search continues.  And I just keep on going.
