Re: John Crockett Caesar Tinwald Scotland
Edith Winifred Moritz's parents were Kopel and Augusta Moritz. I don't know much about them, so looked them up. He appears on the 1871 census as living in Glasgow aged 37 and married to Augusta, aged 25. His place of birth is simply listed as 'Russian Poland'. His occupation is given as 'cashier and bookkeeper', but he seems to branch out into business and by 1879 appears to be running a brick-making business in Bathgate, Scotland.
There is a lot of information on 'ScotlandsPeople' website, which you might like to explore. I will find my copy of the Caesar family tree and let you have such information as I have. As I noted, the Caesar line goes back to the mid 1700's and family opinion is divided as to the more distant origin. one view is that the family originated from Italy, with two brothers ( Cesare) emerging in Britain around late 1500's early 1600's; the other view is that there was an illegitimate child, mid 1700's and born perhaps in Aberdeenshire, Scotland which took the Caesar name from the unacknowledged Father but was brought up in Ayrshire ( thus the connection with Tinwald)However, any notion of an illegitemate child would not have been accepted by my Granmother, however far back in history it was!
My Caesar Great-Aunts ( my Grandmother's sisters) were great fun, very intelligent, and strong women. My Grandmother, Margaret Caesar, will have known Edith Winifred and I will check with my Uncle about any stories about her. My Grandmother was quite a character - turning down a place at Cambridge in the 1920's and travelling to Brazil for a year which in those days was a huge adventure!
Is your branch of the family still in America?
