Re: Helen Wighton, Dundee, Angus, Scotland
I'm afraid I can't comment about the name's origins, but I had a look in Scotland's People for a Bridget WIGHTON, born in Scotland between 1890 and 1904, and came up with nothing.There are a few possible explanations:
She may have been born somewhere other than Scotland.
Her maiden name have been something other than WIGHTON.
She may have been older than you think, and therefore born pre-1890 (it's not unusual for people to lie about their age - my lot did it all the time!).
Do you have Bridget's marriage certificate?If she was married in Scotland, the certificate should give parents' details etc., which will help to trace her birth details.
