Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (L)
Lettice, Elizabeth

My grandmother Elizabeth Lettice married George Murray Allan in Whiteinch, Partick, Glasgow at the age of 19 and gave her parents names as James Lettice and Mary Lettice (m.s. McIntyre).  Together they eleven children.  In 1906 George died. 

Elizabeth Allan (widow lady, mother of eleven) then proceeded to remarry my grandfather William Hawthorn in 1911.  She was then 42 years of age.  She gave her parents names as Thomas Lettice and Catherine Lettice (m.s. Kettles).  There is a notation on their marriage certificate "Warrant of Sheriff-Substitute of Lanarkshire dated November 11, 1911.

After having eleven children, the lady had a "shotgun wedding" with my grandfather because their "first born" arrived a month later.

The "mystery" of this story is that Elizabeth gave two different sets of parents and I have a huge wall to locate anything about the first set of parents.
