    • Sometime between the birth and death of his son in 1865 David with his wife Catherine must have moved back to his birthplace, Dundee. At 184 Perth Road in 1871, still in Dundee in 1881 (exact address unknown). David and Catherine returned to her birthplace, Ealing, between 1881 and 1891.
      (1871 and 1881 data from data transcribed on Ancestry, actual census entries not seen).
    Residence From 1891 to 1911  Lothian House, The Green, Ealing, Middlesex, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Shown in the 1901 census as living at Lothian Cottage, The Green, Ealing with his second wife, his adopted son Clive and an 81 year old boarder, James Bull. However, as he had been living at Lothian House, The Green in Ealing in 1891 and was in 1911 I think 'Cottage' was probably an error in the 1901 census.

      Only the one biological son found, but that was looking in the England and Wales GRO online index; David and Catherine may have had other children born in Scotland, but if so it seems that none survived to be recorded in a census.

      In 1871 a seven year old nephew David R Smith was living with them, in 1881 a seventeen year old nephew Donald G Smith.

      This marriage does not appear in the LMA collection on Ancestry, which goes up to 1921; I suspect it may have been in a reigster office.

    Lothian House
    Lothian House
    I think my gt gt grandmother Mary nee Beaton probably lived at Lothian House from the time she married David Black in 1899 until she moved to Boston towards the end of her life (between 1924, when her daughter moved to Boston, and 1933, when she died).
    I guess that one of the men is David Black; it seems most likely that the one standing is David and the one seated is James Bull, the elderly boarder living with the family at the time of the 1901 census.
