  • Notes 


    • It is possible that Alexander's parents were James Benzie and Mary Forbes, who married 9 Dec 1827 at Oyne, Aberdeenshire. James and Mary ar in the 1841 census with 5 children, but not Alexander. The family (including Alexander) is listed on a family tree on myheritage.com, but no official record linking Alexander with the family has been found, as at Feb 2016.

      It is unclear why Alexander and his wife Mary were at different addresses in the 1861 census - he was at Govan, near (and now part of) Glasgow; she was at Gayfield Street, Blythswood, Glasgow.
