Re: [Stonehaven] Begg
- Hi Jed,
Sorry for delay in responding - I have been on
holiday. The Jimmy Begg and daughter Grace are
relatives on mine. Grace was the sister of my
grandmother Margaret (Maggie) Begg. I have lots
of memories of visiting Stonehaven from the age
of 10 (1961) & of 3 Macdonald Road & recollect
as a child tidying Grace's pantry. She would
have a block of pure honey and the smell made
me feel sick!
Do you remember my grandmother, she married a
David Begg (a tanner) and lived at 34 David
Street next to the then fish shop. I believe
they lived in Rodney Street, or a road off the
square when my mother Jean Burnett was born
Other siblings were Evelyn who was a spinster
and lived with my grandmother up until her death,
there was also Nan (Anne) who married Bill Lawson
and Sonny (James) who married and moved to Ardgay.
I was born and grew up in the South of England
but still visit Stonehaven.
When I was a boy (60 years ago)there was a Jimmy Begg
lived at 3 McDonald Road, Stonehaven. He was looked
after by his Daughter Grace Begg. I can't remember a
Wife or when Jimmy died (after 1940) but you should
be able to get a death certificate from Stonehaven
Registry office Viewmount. From this you will get
Mother and Father. Then Scotlands People can give
you Marriage and Birth records. hope this has been
of some help.
