Janet, I've found them for you.

What I did was a very very loose search. Entered male surname as Sample, entered female surname as Vig* (using * to indicate any characters) and year 1855 to 1870 pressed search ie: NO OTHER CRITERIA. It found a single hit straight away.

1 1866 SAMPLE JOHN VIGROW M W CAMPBELTOWN /ARGYLL 507/00 0025

Hope this helps.

Hello, Louise, and Gavin,

You both asked reasonable questions, but I was sure that the marriage was in Scotland because I had the date and place of marriage on the birth certificate. Birth 1873, marriage 1866; I did not mention the place earlier because this couple married other than in Aberdeenshire.

I did run a search just in the name of VIGROW without a male name and got a list of them, only about 10 in total, the majority in Aberdeenshire, but my record wasnt listed on that occasion.

Here's the reply I have received earlier, but only picked it up just now. The names of the parties are John SAMPLE, Inland Revenue Officer and Margaret Weston VIGROW.

You will see what GRO found, and got a nil return and what they did to find it. I hope that the remedy in this case may help others where you know the record should be there.

Janet
