I have been looking for ages for Margaret B H Terry and now it suddenly dawned on me and her nephew that she may well have been born in scotland possibly midlothian

We also think her full name was Margaret Begbie Hunter Terry and she passed away in Australia

Just looking for any evidence of this her profile is also open to add to it as the only record I have for her is a marriage in surrey, England

Looks like there is a single close match, born in Portobello district...

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/record-results?search_type=people&dl_cat=statutory&dl_rec=statutory-births&surname=terry&surname_so=exact&forename=Margaret%20begbie&forename_so=syn&sex=F&from_year=1915&to_year=1919&record_type=stat_births

You can pay to view. Typically will tell you names of parents and when they married.

Thank you for all the comments and the death certainly helps as it has all the dates I need and that is definately her parents just a shame that one is unsourced

There is also a sourced tree on ancestry but I am not subscribed to view it in the Cox family tree which has 3 records and 3 sources added

The three sources in the Cox tree are Australian electoral rolls

Subdistrict St Kilda West

Name Margaret Begbie H Lightfoot

Country Australia
Name Margaret Begbie H Lightfoot

Thank you Maria for having a look for me
