The FALCONER  family of Edinburgh
This page was created 19 August 2001 and last modified 28 May 2017 msafier@ozemail.com.au
The origins of my Falconer ancestors revolve around the enigmatic George Falconer.  The historic records provide a confusing picture as to whether there were two George Falconers, both house painters and both having multiple marriages with at least one wife named Janet or just one George Falconer and as much as one hates to slur one's own ancestors, an apparent bigamist. What we know is that one of these Georges was the son of Alexander Falconer. Alexander was probably born in the 1760's and became a coachmaker in Edinburgh.  He married Margaret McKenzie of Ross-shire on the 19th of April 1784.  They had at least five children: Alexander, Janet, Jean, George and Margaret all born in Canongate parish, which encompasses the Old Town section of Edinburgh.

George Falconer

George Falconer, the son of Alexander was born on 7 June 1799 and he became a housepainter.  He had three daughters Janet, Elizabeth, Ann and a son Henry born in 1830 listed on the 1841 census. Henry stated his mother's name on his marriage certificate as Jemima Seton.  It appears Jemima must have died as George married to Janet McWilliams on 19 Febuary 1841, but on the night of the census a few months later on 7 June she was not at home with her family.  The marriage record stated Janet was the daughter of James McWilliams, bootmaker (deceased). Only one child is confirmed from this marriage, namely Georgina (b. 1842). Things thereafter become confusing. Another child Catherine was born c.1846 and she stated her mother to be Janet McCulloch on her marriage certificate. George next had two children with Ann Wood namely George (b. c.1847) and Thomas (b.1849) (Ann Wood's name is given as Thomas' mother by Jane Falkonder (sic) his step mother on Thomas' death certificate).  Ann died probably before 1855 (as no trace can be found of her death in the statutory registers).  George, a house painter journeyman is listed living at 24 College Wynd, Edinburgh with a wife named Janet and children Georgina and Catherine in the 1851 census. This census was taken on 30 March and his mother in law Catherine McCulloch, a widowed laundress is living with them. Janet McCulloch was 21 years younger than George. They had a son Alexander born on 11th of July 1860 at the Royal Maternity Hospital. The only marriage record for George that has been found so far is for his union to Janet McWilliams.

Strangely a George Falconer, painter and paper hanger aged 44 and born in Glasgow is listed in the 1851 English census taken the same night as in Scotland on 30 March at Redford Row, Leeds in Yorkshire. His wife is given as Ann Wood Falconer aged 37 born Cupar, Fife and two children George aged 3 born in Glasgow and Thomas aged 1 born in Kelso are listed with them. Did George therefore have two partners, and have one of them falsify his presence at one of the locations on the census? 

George and his family initially lived at 26 Pleasance (1841 census) , moving to 15 College Wynd, off Cowgate (1851 census).  His first three daughters cannot be found at home or elsewhere in the 1851 census and presumably all died young. Henry was lodging with fellow carter James Russell and his family on Pleasance at the time. 

George Falconer's eldest daughter Georgina went to work in an India Rubber factory and was living with her friend and co-worked Mary Fotheringham at 88 Candlemaker Row (1861 census). She married in 1865 to Finlay Hoggan, a railway engineer from Dunfermline. They had three children: James, Jane and William. William lived to just 8 months of age, succumbing to hydrocephalus (water on the brain) and his father died aged 31 the year after in 1872 in the Fife and Kinross Asylum in Cupar from some sort of degenerative neurological disease present over a four year period.  His daughter Jane also appeared to have died young but the details have not yet been located. Georgina thereafter lived with her son at 8 Home St and he had also starting working at the rubber works (1881 census), a job he pursed all his life.

Catherine Falconer went to work in a printing office at an early age.  George and Thomas became tobacconists but Thomas died in the Royal Infirmary from tubercular meningitis in 1863 aged 12. Some time later George and his third wife Janet moved to 88 North Back where George died of old age at 82 on the 10th of May 1882.

Henry Falconer

Henry met and an Irish girl named Catherine Irvine who had emigrated from Tyrone county with her brother who apparently drowned on the trip.  This was before the plimsole line and the ship was apparently overladen.  Catherine was the daughter of Peter Irvine, a catholic schoolmaster and Margaret Donaghue.  Henry then aged 26 and Catherine aged 27 stated on their children's birth certificates that they were married in Falkirk on the 1st of May 1856 although no official record of this marriage exists.  They lived for a while in Tranent where their first child George was born in 1857.  Henry then found a job as a fireman in the Leith Gasworks and he rented a place at No. 24 in Waters Lane near the Leith shore, which was predominantly occupied by other gasworkers.  Another son, Henry, was born in 1859 and a daughter Janet in 1861.  The family then moved to 11 Little Jack's Close off the Canongate in the old part of Edinburgh where a third son John was born in 1864. Strangely Henry and Catherine's recorded marriage was on the 17th of March 1865 according to the rites of the Church of Scotland.   They gave their addresses as nos. 8 and 23 Pleasance which suggests they did not want it to be known they were already living together.  They moved yet again to 12 Big Jack's Close off the Canongate and had another daughter Jemima in 1867.  The family later returned to Little Jack's Close, this time no. 2. 

The eldest child George Falconer became a paper-ruler in his teens and married Jane McRae on 26 February 1886 and they had six children: Henry, Christina, Catherine, Alexander, George and Jane. Janet became a machine girl in a printing office, probably the one where she met Alexander McMorran, a printer who was living in Dunfermline just north of Edinburgh at the time.  Janet may have followed her aunt Catherine into this work.  Janet and Alexander had a son Alexander on the 25th of March 1881 and he stayed with his Falconer grandparent's in their home at 29 St John's Hill until his parents were married the following month on the 22nd of April.  The couple then moved to Dunfermline initially and then back to Edinburgh and went on to have thirteen children although only seven survived childhood (click here for info on the McMorran family). 

Jemima became a hat trimmer but contracted TB and died from pneumonia at the age of 17 in 1884.  Henry became a saddler/harness maker and he married English born Sarah Eales on 17 May 1887 who was the daughter of Richard Eales, a London spirit dealer and Caroline (nee Lawrence).  They settled in St. Pancras, London and had eight children: Kate, Annie, Harry, Edith, Lillie, Walter, John and Henrietta.

Henry Falconer snr died of heart disease on 26 July 1895 at the age of 64.  His youngest son John had remained at home and worked with his father in the gasworks initially. He married on December 31, 5 months after his father's death to Jane Brown, a millworker who was the daughter of Rodger Brown, a watchmaker, and Mary Rooney.  John worked as a pottery labourer and he and Jane had five children Mary Jane (b. 1896), Jane (b. 1900), Alexander, George and John. There address is listed as 1 Campbell's Close, Canongate in the 1901 census but the family later settled in Pipe St, Portobello.

Elizabeth McMorran, daughter of Janet Falconer always stated that one of our Falconer relations immigrated to Australia in the nineteenth century and were successful sheep farmers.  No facts that concur with this story have so far been established but their is a well known and wealthy family named Falkener who came to Australia last century and became some of Australia's biggest sheep farmers but a connection is dubious.

Loren Turner shared information in 2002 that Jean Falconer, daughter of Alexander Falconer above married James Buncle in Newton, Midlothian in 1822. They migrated to Iowa. James, a farmer aged 67, was alone in the 1870 census for Wagner, Clayton Co., but a death for Jean has not yet been found. Some of the trees on line have this James Buncle as being born in Dalkeith, Midlothian but that James married a Jean Archibald.
