Jessie Cassidy nee Drysdale  Apr 2012 (195869)
I'm hitting a real dead-end with my great-grandmother Jessie Cassidy nee Drysdale. She died in Stirling in 1953, aged 82, putting her birth year around 1871. Her parents are recorded as Andrew Drysdale, Woollen Mill Worker, and Agnes nee Smith. I think the parent details are a direct lift from her marriage certificate - she married Hugh Cassidy in 1901, her address being recorded as (26?) Albert Place, Stirling. By the time of the 1901 census, Hugh and Jessie already have their first son and are living on Lower Castle Hill Stirling - she's 29, confirming a birth date of around 1871 - and she had her last child in 1913, which means she can't have been born much earlier than the early 1870s. Her birth place is recorded in the census as Stirling and this fits in with family recollections that she was Stirling born and bred. In the 1891 census, she appears to be living in North End, St Ninians with her grandparents, Andrew and Jessie Drysdale. But I can't them trace her any further back and find her parents or her birth certificate or her presence in early censuses. I can find a Drysdale family in North End, St Ninians in the 1881 census - they have a 12-year old granddaughter, Jessie Fairbavin (or Fairbairn?), possibly her?. I can't find any trace of any of this Drysdale family in the 1871 census, any evidence of a marriage between an Andrew Drysdale and Agnes Smith, or any evidence of a birth of Jessie Drysdale. The grandparents appear to have come from Clackmannashire. Anyone with any pointers as to how to solve this mystery?
