You mentioned a data bank of Ironsides including the first names of William and George. I have a George Ironside that married in Glasgow 19 June 1873. Father William Ironside - Farmer Mother Jane Ironside m/s Scott
I cannot find records of George's birth but one census says he was born in Fyvie. He would have been born about 1849. George had two sisters (at least)--Elizabeth and Jane.
William Ironside (1811-1888) -Crofter-Widower of Jane Scott died 27 February 1888 at 2.30am Poorhouse Inverurie Male 77 Years Father William Ironside - Crofter Mother Isabella Ironside m/s Wright
Jane Ironside (1810-1880) married to William Ironside - Labourer died 18 June 1880 at 9am 2 Kintore Terrace Inverurie Female 70 Years Father George Scott - Crofter Mother Bridget Scott m/s Burns
Have you come across any of these two Williams or this George Ironside?
