The marriage information is correct for the person of interest. But if the date of marriage was 1838, how could he be born in 1839 as suggested?

Hi Hugh,

You'll find digitized copies of his BMD records at the following web site http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

It's the official General Registrar's Web Site for Scotland. Downloading a copy of a certificate from there works out as £1-20 per copy.

All the best
