HI, Thanks for your reply,
I'm also a descendent of David Gorman Robertson which is the reason I have been keen to find out about David Gorman.
I did notice that the marriage certificate stated that David Gorman was deceased, therefore he should have died between 1969 (David's birth) and 1899. I have checked the deaths notices in Scotland for this period but could'nt find anyone I thought would be him.
I hope to check a list of Commercial Travellers and see if his name is on it, but it could be an invented occupation. He is not listed as living at Parson Street on 1871 Census and is not in the Post Office Directories of 1868, 1869,1870 or 1871. He could have moved to England or abroad, or it could be a fabrication as it looks as if he did not want to be found.
I wonder if David Gorman Robertson's half brothers or sisters (Gregor and Isabella's children} knew about David's
father or were told any information about him? It has certainly been a bit of a mystery!!
