Narrative

Witnesses at the marriage of Margaret Ramsay were James Glover and Frederick Cannon. They were married in the Church of England in St. Eleanors.

A good fit for Margaret would be the family of John Ramsy and Margaret Penman, but I have no proof of this. (another tree says Malcolm and Margaret Murphy, but their daughter Margaret married George Montgomery, and then George Murray)

On the 1891 census, Margaret said both of her parents were born on the Island. If she was correct, that rules out one of the Ramsays born in Scotland as her father.

Margaret was a widow in the 1881 and 1891 census, living with her son Horatio and daughter Mary Ann. In 1881, Mary Ramsay age 55 was also in the household.
