The Hutchison Family Of Glasgow
This is the paternal family of Eliza Agnes Hutchison (1860 - 1940) and her Hutchison ancestors.
My grandmother, Eliza Agnes Goldsworthy married William Froggatt in Sydney in 1910. Her mother was Eliza Agnes HUTCHISON.
Ralph HUTCHISON - David's Father
Ralph was born about 1806 in Inverkeithing, Fife, Scotland, the second son of David Hutchison and Esther (nee MORTON). I cannot find his birth in the Scottish records, although all his siblings are recorded.
Isabella was born about 1811 in Dalgetty, Fifeshire, to William Milne and Isabella (nee McNAUGHTON).
Marriage of Ralph and Isabella
Ralph and Isabella married on 25 February 1828 at the Parish of Inverkeithing.
The Family of Ralph and Isabella
Ralph and Isabella had 11 children. I have obtained these names from the census records as I cannot find most of them in the birth registers. Ralph's name appears in the census records with different ages, suggesting the older one died and the name was reused, but the Scottish death records only begin in 1855 so I cannot check this possibility:
Death of Ralph and Isabella
Ralph died on 17 June 1881 at Alma St. Isabella died 28 February 1894 at Alma St.
David Hutchison (Ralph's Father & David's Grandfather)
David was an agricultural labourer, born 1 July 1771 to parents David and Isabella (Chapman). He died 29 March 1856 at Gouk Hall, Inverkeithing, where he had lived for most of his life.
Birth and death records for David Hutchison
David married Esther Morton. Esther Morton was born about 1780 in England according to the 1841 census. She died between 1841 and 1851.
There is some doubt as to when David and Esther actually married. The marriage was entered into the Inverkeithing Parish registers on 15 March 1795, but the record refers to a "paper which they called marriage lines dated Edinburgh 3 July 1794. They acknowledged themselves married to each other, were rebuked for their irregularity and exhorted to live as becomes a married state."
This may be an example of the old Scottish tradition of "Handfast", especially as the first child of David and Ester was born exactly 5 months after the registration.

1841 census record for David and Esther
From the 1851 census, we can see that Esther died between 1841 and 1851.

David married Isabella Chapman at Beath Parish Church, Fife on 4 June 1762:
Isabella Chapman was born 8 Jan 1744 at Beath, Fifeshire to George Chapman, the miller:
They had at least two children:
