MORRISON Gus’s line1898

We will dedicate this page to the family of  Gus Morrison born 1898, son of Angus Morrison 1871

 Angus Morrison and my own grandfather Alex. Morrison were brothers.    The Morrison family we can trace back many generations.   Here is a quick snapshot of the Morrison line.

My great-grandfather  Angus Morrison was born in Edinburgh Castle on 28th August 1871, son of George Morrison and Elizabeth Cowie.     Angus married Margaret Kathleen Brady on 1st December 1893.


The 1911 census tells us that the Angus Morrison, his wife Margaret Brady and their  family were living at 1 Milne’s Court, Lawnmarket, Edinburgh.   There were 8 family members, including uncle James Morrison, Angus’s younger brother, who was visiting on the night of the Census.   James Morrison  was a bricklayer by trade and this has been the Morrison’s trade all throughout the 1900s and beyond.  He was born in Forfarshire in Dundee in the year 1874.

The census shows that Angus Morrison had five children at this time

Marion was their eldest daughter and she worked as an umbrella maker.    Does anyone in the family remember her.?

Angus was the eldest  son born in 1898.   This is Gus’s line to whom this page is dedicated.

Alex was next born in 1903.   This is my grandfather -[ Helen Quilietti Stanton]

John was next born in 1909.   What happened to this John Morrison, can any of our family out there remember him?

then Annie who was only 6 months old at the time of the census.   Again no further information of her.

There was also a George Morrison who was born in 1900 as is shown in his birth certificate below
